Creatively Silhouetted Posters of Superheroes

If you liked Malaysia-based graphic designer Marcus’ minimalist UP poster, you just might enjoy his simple yet creative silhouetted superhero posters. The series of works, which are available in the artist’s Etsy shop known as Poster Inspired, feature four famous superheroes including Batman, Spiderman, The Incredible Hulk, and Captain America, whom we’ve all grown familiar with through Hollywood blockbusters.

With each of these characters coming out with another big-budget film this year (The Dark Knight Rises, The Amazing Spider-Man, The Avengers), perhaps it’s perfect timing to grab one of these fantastic four (comic book joke) 12″ x 16″ digital prints that cost only $18 each. Personally, I love the shadowy sullen profile of Batman composed of bats. The dark knight is his own cave of emotions… or just bats.

Visually, elements of the Earth and sky are the actors for the feelings we cannot easily imagine. Together, the sun, mountains, and more depict “narratives of conflict, entrapment, longing, and precarious hope.” These symbols allow Liu to seem removed, yet make the pieces deeply personal.
