Pixar films dazzle the senses, but they burrow so much deeper into our skins apart from sight and sound. The artwork and stories in these films leave such lasting impressions and live on through other artists. Mondo, the Texas based company famous for its bold art designs inspired by indelible films, is presenting their latest gallery, The Spirit of Adventure: A Pixar Poster Show this Friday. Check out some of the posters that will be on display:
This Coco poster by Cesar Moreno is rich with so much color and detail. Although it depicts Miguel’s shrine to his idol, Ernesto de la Cruz, his other family members also appear in the doilies. It also makes incredible use of light and deep purple hues to evoke warmth. The Pepita in the foreground reminds me of my own plush sitting on the bookshelf in my room.
And look at this stunning print by Phantom City Creative of A Bug’s Life! This is one of Pixar’s best, though it’s sometimes ignored. I’m really glad that it was included, and making all the characters green, save for Flik, is a brilliant touch. Its vibrancy draws your eyes to the poster.
This Brave poster by Greg Ruth is another favorite. I love the contrast between Merida’s look of confidence and Queen Elinor’s wariness in her massive bear form. And the detailing on that gorgeous fur! It looks as if you could actually feel it if you were to reach out and touch it.
A few more dazzlingly colored pieces are below.
“Pixar has a beautiful way of telling timeless stories that resonate with all audiences no matter their age. Their films are bursting with beloved characters, creativity, and imagination that is largely unmatched. In the end, nobody tells a story quite like Pixar. We are incredibly proud and excited to have partnered with our friends at Cyclops Print Works and several of our favorite artists to celebrate various iconic titles from Pixar’s unbelievable catalog of films.”
-Eric Garza, Mondo Creative Director
