See Posters of Oscar-Nominated Films Reinterpreted As Pop Art
Shutterstock Project Marks 30th Anniversary of Warhol's Death
Feb 23, 2017
From an Andy Warhol-esque baseball for "Fences," to an Eduardo Paolozzi-style collage representing "La La Land," Shutterstock is celebrating the Oscars with alternative movie posters for the Best Picture nominees in pop art style.
The project, which also marks the 30th anniversary of Andy Warhol's death, challenged designers to choose one of the nine nominated films and reinterpret it as a work of Pop Art, based on the style of an artist who inspires them and using images from Shutterstock's collection.
The designers include Abbey Katz, who created the "La La Land" poster, Terrence Morash, who created the "Fences" work in the style of Warhol's gun series and Brandon Lee, who interpreted "Hacksaw Ridge" using cut-outs of toy soldiers in the style of Richard Hamilton. Alice Lee illustrated "Arrival" taking cues from Lichtenstein, Kate Crotty created a poster for "Moonlight" recreating Peter Blake's use of grids, and Flo Lau took on "Lion" using the segmented circles of Bruce Gray. Michael Wong was inspired by Robert Rauschenberg's "combines" for his poster on "Hell or High Water and Alice Li illustrated "Hidden Figures" using the silhouettes style of the artist Idelle Weber.
