PureGrainAudio.com announces their new mixed-media art series “Epilogue” presented by artist Damon Kardon. The art series honors classic horror/sci-fi films and the creative promotional art that was presented to the public at the time of their premiere dates. All of these films represented in this art series are celebrating a milestone anniversary of their release and the impact they have made in pop culture history. Artist Damon Kardon has chosen specific films that influenced him over the years through their distinct tone, cinematography and direction. He is expressing his emotions felt from viewing each film through his art process of painting key images and colors that also represent the story of each film. Each poster design starts as a painting and then is manipulated in photoshop.
“As a kid who loved going to the movies and also enjoyed the classic painted poster designs of Drew Struzan, I dreamed of bringing my art style into the world of interpretive movie posters. The term “Epilogue” in film represents the final scenes in which a recap or narrative of what happens to the characters is given. It can be represented in a montage, which is how I interpret these works I’m creating.”
Epilogue #1 will be a 35th anniversary movie poster design for “Christine” and can be viewed at the following link: http://puregrainaudio.com/reviews/epilogue-painted-movie-poster-art-series-feature-1-christine-35th-anniversary
