Artist Matthew Warren is the creator of these beautiful, hand drawn alternative movie posters of cult and classic films. Warren, who was born in the island of Guernsey (off the coast of France), draws upon his twin passions of art and film to make them. The artist says that the design and composition of the posters are influenced by the film’s characters and themes, and he derives inspiration from the movie’s color palette and imagery.
Each poster dissects the film’s narrative, and chooses a singular image which frames the film in a fresh way depicting its spirit and cult status. Each pencil mark is visible, offering a unique product while asserting their originality in comparison to the mass-produced, often generic, official poster…
Matthew Warren is a trained artist, having studied Fine Art at The University of the West of England in Bristol, and then his Masters at OTIS College of Art and Design in Los Angeles, CA. He is currently back on his home island producing these posters, while working as a manager at a local charity helping young adults with issues.
