hen we think of art, we often think of the sort of stuff that hangs up in museums. Paintings, statues, maybe a nice sketch.
Well, many artists take a far broader view of their craft, and, as you’ll see below, the results can be fascinating. When pop culture and a creative mind meet, cool things like this can happen.
A “poster artist” is just what it sounds like. A creative soul who figures out the best way to express a concept on a poster.
Given that the medium is the same one used by films, it’s no surprise that Jordan Bolton’s most recent project is a movie lover’s dream.
He’s taking the elements of Hollywood’s most iconic movies and arranging them as fictional retail storefronts.
It sounds really high concept (and maybe even a little goofy), but the results are fascinating and beautiful.
He deftly moves between old and new films, ensuring there’s something for everyone in his work.
Clueless is certainly a great film to repurpose as a store.
If you thought Jordan’s work was a straight copy-and-paste job, think again.
He’s creating most, if not all, of the elements that he puts “on display” in the storefronts he creates.
Part costume designer, part visual merchandiser, part graphic designer. This guy has a lot of talent.
He calls the series “Fashion Film Posters,” but that moniker seems to sell the effort short.
He’s creating a whole new location, it would seem. Not just a poster. And they’re all done to closely recreate the style of the films.
