In celebration of The Oscars on February 24, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences unveiled today the newest addition to its show poster collection.
The commemorative poster was designed by English artist, graphic designer and illustrator Olly Moss in collaboration with Gallery1988. The special edition piece features 85 Oscar statuettes, each one distinctly inspired by the Best Picture winners from 1927 to 2012. The poster images can currently be viewed in a digital gallery.
Moss, a graduate of the University of Birmingham, is best known for such works as the Thor cast poster for Marvel Entertainment, the cover artwork for the “Resistance 3” video game, and his recent book Silhouettes from Popular Culture. One of the most sought-after screen print artists working today, Moss has created illustrations for The New York Times and The Guardian, and is commissioned by Empire magazine to design a new movie poster illustration every month.
The commemorative poster, along with a special edition T-shirt by DabsMyla, is now available for purchase at oscars.org/posters or by calling 1-877-335-8936.
The original poster will be on display beginning February 14 as part of “For Your Consideration,” the Academy’s collaborative exhibition with Gallery1988 Melrose, at 7020 Melrose Avenue in Los Angeles.
