Sharm Murugiah Stuns With A Gorgeous Poster For Michel Gondry’s “Mood Indigo”

Wonder who designed our fab logo? Well it certainly wasn’t me! That was down to London based designer and artist Sharm Murugiah. The first time I was exposed to Sharm’s work was by the way of the Steelbook cover for Only God Forgives, the winning entry in Empire movie magazines competition judge by director Nicolas Winding Refn. Since then we have been paying close attention to his work, such as his Picture House Exhibition, “The Many Faces of Sharm Murugiah” and the excellent movie art anthology, “This Must Be The Place”.

Recently Sharm has put together this beautiful poster for Michel Gondry’s Mood Indigo for Picture House Cinema’s poster competition.

Picture House Cinema Host “The Many Faces Of Sharm Murugiah”, A Solo Potrait Show!

The first time I was exposed to the work of artist and illustrator Sharm Murugiah was through the great work he did on the Steelbook cover for Only God Forgives, the winning entry in Empire movie magazines competition judge by director Nicolas Winding Refn. Since then we have been paying close attention to his work, such as the excellent movie art anthology, “This Must Be The Place”.

Now Sharm has just announced a new solo portrait show, “The Many Faces Of Sharm Murugiah”, which will run at Picture House Cinema, Clapham, London, UK from the 22nd of May.

The show is supported by Clapham Picturehouse Cinemas, London, the perfect platform to present a set of movie themed portraits.

Each piece will be unique to the show and will be signed and sealed by Sharm himself. SO THEY ARE COMPLETE ONE OFFS! When we say sealed, we actually mean it. Take a look at the actual seal in question as well as a select few pieces to look forward to.

Print Club London release alternative movie poster series for Soho House’s Electric Cinema

Done right, alternative movie posters can be fantastic works of art. Done wrong, they look like minimalist Olly Moss rip offs. Thankfully Print Club London’s Soho House commissioned series is the former.

Artists Hattie Stewart, HelloVon, Anthony Burrill and Ed Wood have created unique works inspired by World War Z, Lincoln, The Great Gatsby, Gangster Squad, Rush, Anchorman 2, and a few more.
