Title: Rashomon Silkscreen Poster, 2016
Description: Classical movie poster commissioned by a private party. I was asked to illustrate this legendary film, Rashomon, directed by Akira Kurosawa. I wanted to keep this whole vibe to be dreadful, heavy, and somewhat monochromatic. There’s very iconic Rashomon Gate in a storm, to me it looked like a mouth to hell or heaven. From the movie, I get calm but raged, chill but bloody warm,,, The tone of this piece was important to me, and it was great challenge to keep it in 8 color silkscreen on 24″x36″ size!
Thank you Francis and your team! It came out beautifully!
