This Week In Posters, henceforth known as TWIP, is a new weekly feature by Isabel Hsu! Check back week to week to see the newest posters for movies, the latest prints to be released and galleries opening up!
This week, we were treated to new posters for Mud, Fast & Furious 6, The Call, Sundance favorite The End of Love, and Studio Ghibli’s From Up on Poppy Hill.
And in case you missed them, last week featured new posters from Iron Man 3, Trance, Spring Breakers, The Place Beyond the Pines, and Oz: The Great and Powerful.
Mondo released Graham Erwin’s A Nightmare on Elm Street print earlier this week, which, in typical Mondo fashion, sold out in a matter of minutes. Don’t worry if you missed out – there are still some awesome prints being dropped this week.
Shepard Fairey dropped his “Let Fury Have the Hour” this week; it is currently still available on his website for $40.
Dark Hall Mansion will be releasing Tom Whalen’s Beatles prints on Tuesday, February 12, at 9:30 AM PST. Each set will include four 24″ x 30″ prints, and costs $200 per set with an edition size of 200.
There is also a variant set available for $300 per set, with an edition of 50.
Atelier Défense d’Afficher just dropped the second print in their“ Audiology” series. “Stereo Cassette Player” is a 19.5″ x 27.5″ screenprint, has an edition of 100, and can currently be purchased at their Etsy Shop.
Not in your prince range? You’re in luck – you still have time to purchase limited art from The People’s Print Shop. Roland Tamayo’s “Flow” and Allison Reimold’s “Interesting Specimen” are available as 8″ x 10″ giclees for $20 each, or $30 framed.
And check out Matt Ferguson’s 30 x 40 cm posters for Drive, available here. The colors are absolutely gorgeous, and capture a fantastic 80’s vibe. Plus, if you buy two prints, you’ll get free shipping… and for anyone who’s ever purchased a poster print and had to deal with the insane shipping charges, you know how great of a deal that is.
The LA Times Hero Complex “Weapon of Choice” moves to SOMArts in San Francisco this month! From the gallery website: “The theme revolves around art inspired by prominent characters of fiction, historical reference, or pop culture, and their relationship with their iconic “weapon,” that one thing that is inextricably tied to their character.
In addition, SOMArts will also be housing “Oscar Legends”, featuring “art inspired by some of film history’s most groundbreaking Oscar-winning films. Art will include artist renditions of Casablanca, Chinatown, Aliens, Pulp Fiction, Gladiator, Star Wars, Terminator 2, Raiders of the Lost Ark, An American Werewolf in London, Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon and many more”.
The opening reception for both these shows will be at SOMArts (934 Brannan Street, San Francisco, CA 94103) on February 15, from 6-10 PM.
