They don’t make movies posters like they used to …or do they?
We’ve recently been drooling over the movie poster art of Laurent Durieux, who has risen from the ashes of a dying art form. The days are long gone when movie posters were thrilling conceptual works of art you’d proudly displayed on the walls of your bedroom.
Hollywood movie posters have become so soulless and “paint by numbers” that we honestly can’t think of one cool movie poster that has come out in the last 10 years that wasn’t made by Mondo. Luckily, Durieux has not only breathed new life into a dying art form, he’s created his own retro-futuristic style, which is nothing short of stunning. His art work takes our imaginations to a golden age of cinema utopia filled with bold colors and luscious landscapes.
The only problem is: getting your hands on one of his posters is incredibly difficult. Durieux only makes limited runs of his prints and they literally sell out in minutes. Unless you’re one of the lucky few to snag one of his posters when they first go on sale…you’ll be spending a small fortune for one of his prints on Ebay.
