Grey Matter Art To Release Iron Man Print By Gabz On September 2, 2015

Grey Matter Art, under license from Marvel Studios is proud to present a New Officially Licensed, Limited Edition Screen Print for the Classic Super-Hero Action Film, “Iron Man.” This is the second poster Grey Matter Art has produced for “Iron Man” and has chosen to work with the very talented artist, Grzegorz Domaradzki (Gabz). There are 3 separate editions for this poster, a Regular & Variant Edition, as well as a Gold Foil Edition. The subtle use of gold foil is used very selectively and really lends itself well to this poster. Below are details regarding the poster and release date.

Here is what the artist had to say about the project:

“When growing up I was a huge comic book fan, reading everything comics related I could get my hands on (which, in Eastern Europe wasn’t as easy as one might think). I used to copy my favourite artists and draw my own stories. Back in the day working for comic giant such as Marvel seemed like an impossible dream, so as soon as I heard the GMA guys are getting the license for Marvel films, I had a number of titles I wanted to tackle. I was thrilled and excited to work on Jon Favreau’s: Iron Man, by far my favorite and best Marvel film (next to The Guardians of the Galaxy). I enjoy it greatly every time I see it. I wanted the composition to reflect the conflict between good and evil by dividing the canvas into two parts. Since I was always drawn towards villains in those type of movies I decided to build the composition around Obadiah’s sinister headshot (one cannot really dislike The Dude). It wouldn’t be a complete Iron Man poster without Tony Stark, Pepper Potts and Iron Man’s classic pose. I hope the fans of the movie will appreciate it. I know for sure I had a blast doing it and I’m very happy with cleverly used foil this time around.”

This poster will be released on Wednesday, September 2nd on the Grey Matter Art website shop page at a random time between 1:00-2:00 PM (EST) at www.greymatterart.com

Dark Hall Mansion To Release Godzilla Print By Laurent Durieux On August 28, 2015

Dark Hall Mansion, under license from Warner Bros Entertainment, will release a print based on one of the most influential and classic of all Sci-Fi films, Godzilla.

First appearing in 1954, Godzilla’s impact and influence on worldwide culture is both inescapable and undeniable! The artist chosen for this Seminal Film Series project is Laurent Durieux and the poster will be released this Friday, August 28, 2015.

The essence of DHM’s Seminal Film Series is to showcase an artist’s work in print in a manner that is visually striking, compelling, and hopefully at times, provocative. Dark Hall Mansion feels Laurent has done just that with his Godzilla. His pieces do not just entertain but provoke thought and consideration. His Standard edition’s color palette evocatively underscores his visual’s powerful thematics while his Variant edition has a darker intensity harkening to the film’s black and white origins, its visuals strikingly offset with only Godzilla’s name rendered via kanji.

You can read a great interview with the artist about this project on blurppy.com HERE.

New Banksy Exhibition Dismaland Pokes Fun At Disneyland

1

British graffiti artist Banksy has taken satirical aim at Disneyland with a new theme park set to open in the U.K. this weekend.

Dismaland, built over an unused open-air swimming pool in the seaside town of Weston-super-mare, is billed as a “bemusement park” and “the U.K.’s most disappointing new visitor attraction,” and makes numerous artistic swipes at the cultural and political establishment. Alongside works by Banksy himself, there are pieces by artists like Damien Hirst and Jenny Holzer.

Grumpy guards are set to welcome guests while inside there’s a decrepit version of Disney’s classic Cinderella castle (behind a warped model of Ariel, from Disney’s Little Mermaid), plus a pool with tiny model boats full of refugees and a grim reaper sitting in a bumper car. Surly stewards wearing Mickey Mouse ears are also on hand to offer insincere-sounding welcomes.

“I guess it’s a theme park whose big theme is — theme parks should have bigger themes,” Banksy said in a statement, adding that Dismaland was a “festival of art, amusements and entry-level anarchism.”

The exhibition, which Banksy described as a “family theme park unsuitable for children,” is his first in the U.K. since 2009’s Banksy v Bristol Museum, which drew more than 300,000 visitors.

Dismaland is due to run for six weeks.
