“ALIENS. One of the first three movies I remember seeing in the theaters (alongside Dick Tracy and Nightmare on Elm Street 3). It is a fond memory of mine as my father took to see it when I was 9. Ever since, it has been a staple, on VHS, DVD and now Blu-Ray. I watch it at least twice a month and it definitely a desert island film.
The film isn’t about the marines to me. It isn’t even about Ripley or Newt, their relationship or about facing your fears. It is about the suspense, the surprise, and scope of the xenomorph infestation. The scene that stuck with me all these years and still is a joy to watch is when the marines first encounter the Xenos. They were ill-prepared, overwhelmed and undermanned. And has a viewer you felt the same fear they did.
I wanted to somehow express this in art form and at the same time, pay tribute to the man who’s imagination sprung forth this nightmarish world… H.R. GIGER. While he may have not worked on this film specifically, his world was represented perfectly here and I hope he would have seen that. So this idea of seeing the hive for the first time, not knowing what was alive and what wasn’t, really spoke to me. I knew the only way to convey my ideas on paper would be in charcoals and knowing what could be done with screenprinting these days, I began to pour the idea down. When finished, it became clear that this was right. This was ALIENS.
I want to thank Grey Matter Art for releasing this as well as Matt Ferguson for getting this ready for screen printing. Everything came together so wonderfully and I cannot express my happiness in this. Being able to create an official piece for a film that you hold so dear to your heart is a great feeling.” – Timothy Pittides
Grey Matter Art is excited to announce it’s next release! In partnership with Acme Archives and Dark Ink, under license from 20th Century Fox, GMA will be revealing a new screen print for the film, “Prometheus” by the very talented artist, Gabz (Grzegorz Domaradzki). On sale Wednesday, March 22nd at 1pm Eastern (10am PDT) HERE.
“I’ve been a fan of Alien franchise since the very beginning and always enjoyed terrifying yet mesmerising worlds created by Sir Ridley Scott, so I couldn’t be happier for having a chance to work on an officially licensed print for Prometheus. The idea for this poster struck me after re-watching it for the third time and I almost instantly started drawing… For me it was a sort of back to basics, because the image was entirely made with pencils on paper, later scanned and digitally enhanced in Adobe Photoshop, and later color separated for screen printing. I’m pleased to say it’s practically a personal work and really wanted to thank Grey Matter Art guys, Acme Archives Limited and Dark Ink Art for letting me do this piece my way.
The idea was to depict Architect’s pale and godly profile with a human fetus inside his skull. Attentive viewer should be able to spot at least few references to xenomprph and H.R. Giger’s work that inspired “worlds scariest alien”. The title is “Creator of Men” or simply “Architect” and my intention was to yet again pay homage to Polish Poster School which is very close to my heart not just because of my origin. With this print I also wanted to somehow recollect my earlier years, back when I was an art student and was absolutely obsessed with anatomy and human body in general. Hope fans of the franchise will appreciate my take on the film.” – Gabz
