Underlying even the most sophisticated of films, there exists a foundational layer with a simple task – to instill a sense of glee and wonder in the audience at the mere existence of cinema.
It’s the sheer bliss found in loving a movie, that unbridled fandom, that pulses through UK based illustrator Murugiah’s take on Kubrick’s seminal film 2001: A Space Odyssey. His composition is an intertwining of moments held in cosmic balance on the page. This is a poster as pure celebration.
The positivity in his work is absolute. At first glance, you are lost in the blasts of psychedelic shape and color, then Murugiah’s sense of visual rhythm leads you to see the full story, all of it all at once. Murugiah’s posters read like a story told in shattered stained glass, a dispersement of narrative held within the borders of the canvas.
