Frankenstein, Dracula, The Mummy, The Wolf Man, The Creature From The Black Lagoon…
What a monstrous legacy Universal Studio’s have on their hands.
To celebrate that legacy and influence, MONDO, Alamo Drafthouse’s collectible art division, have dedicated a new exhibition in Austin, Texas which collects more than 60 original and screen-printed works of art from the likes of Struzan, legendary makeup artist Rick Baker, illustrators and artists Laurent Durieux, Francesco Francavilla and Ken Taylor and many others
“Mondo is the Alamo Drafthouse’s collectible art boutique, featuring designs from world famous artists based on licenses for popular TV and Movie properties including Star Wars, Star Trek & Universal Monsters. Championed for their limited edition screen printed posters, Mondo focuses on bringing art back to movie posters by working with artists such as Olly Moss, Tyler Stout, Martin Ansin and others. Besides creating stunning works for beloved classics and contemporary films, Mondo produces posters for featured Alamo Drafthouse events and has recently inaugurated a “Director’s Series” that will focus on a celebrated filmmaker’s body of work, beginning with Guillermo del Toro.”
One of the greatest movie poster artists in history, Drew Struzan was approached to submit work for the exhibition.
Look what he turned in!
