One of the biggest names in modern Alternative Movie Posters, Belgian illustrator Laurent Durieux shows his love for cinema with his truly gorgeous screen print designs full of bright color and endlessly intricate detail. He's had a steady rise in prominence since the early 2010s and gained international fame in 2013 when Durieux's picturesque rendition of Jaws caught the attention of none other than director Steven Spielberg.
Over the last decade and a half, the Alternative Movie Poster has emerged as a cutting-edge collectible with a rapidly growing base of artists, fans, and galleries. Part pop culture and part fine art, these unique limited-edition reimagining's of cult cinema are much rarer and more beautiful than the offset one sheets churned out for theatrical consumption each year. Adding to the posters' desirability is the fact that they tend to be signed by their artists and are limited to small print runs, numbering from a scant handful of copies to a few hundred prints at most, each a work of art in both design and skilled production.
Some of the most renowned commercial and comic art illustrators of the day are behind these incredible screen and giclée pieces, like the famed Drew Struzan, Bill Sienkiewicz, Roger Kastel, Laurent Durieux, Eric Powell, Tyler Stout, Steve Chorney, Mark "Jock" Simpson, Olly Moss, and many, many more. Though Alternative Movie Posters originated as a series of humble online offerings for a niche audience, the medium has continued to gain greater and greater prestige among collectors. New prints will sell out of stock within mere minutes online, while some have their own special debuts at the Mondo Gallery in Austin, San Francisco's Spoke Art Gallery, and such famed events as the San Diego and New York City Comic Cons. Ultimately, these stunning prints are becoming coveted items among movie fans and are sure to play a greater part in the future of the collecting hobby. Hand numbered in pencil in the lower left and signed in pencil in lower right.
Estimate: $800 - $1,600.
