Brussels-based illustrator and graphic designer Laurent Durieux draws upon a variety of old films like Jaws, The Iron Giant, and The Birds as the inspiration for his series of intriguing movie posters. The artist uses a retro-futuristic approach to his alternative designs where bold colors and minimalist typography come together in incredibly unique screen prints.
Durieux translates each story into his imaginative visual depictions by paying close attention to detail and referencing plot points within the films. Most of his pieces begin as quick pencil sketches that the artist then develops over time, with some pieces taking as long as 2 months to complete.
Durieux’s work is most often inspired by film, and he explains, “The beauty of the cinema is that it relays all sorts of emotions notwithstanding your culture, age, and background. It’s a universal language, like art…I absolutely love working on film posters and always try to tell a story in a single image, not a thousand.”
