One of the very first artists that caught Sully’s and my attention was Gabz. Sully even bought a Pacific Rim poster that Gabz designed. We’ve kept an eye out for more of his work. In what could maybe described as fate, we recently did a write-up up Grey Matter Art – a company that is churning out some very high quality posters that are more like fine art pieces. Now the incredibly talented Grzegorz Domaradzki, a.k.a. Gabz, is bringing Marvel’s Iron Man to fans with his newest piece with three different versions! All versions are 24″ x 36″ and printed by D&L Screen Printing. Here’s what Gabz had to say about working on this poster:
“When growing up I was a huge comic book fan, reading everything comics related I could get my hands on (which, in Eastern Europe wasn’t as easy as one might think). I used to copy my favourite artists and draw my own stories. Back in the day working for comic giant such as Marvel seemed like an impossible dream, so as soon as I heard the GMA guys are getting the license for Marvel films, I had a number of titles I wanted to tackle. I was thrilled and excited to work on Jon Favreau’s: Iron Man, by far my favourite and best Marvel film (next to The Guardians of the Galaxy). I enjoy it greatly every time I see it. I wanted the composition to reflect the conflict between good and evil by dividing the canvas into two parts. Since I was always drawn towards villains in those type of movies I decided to build the composition around Obadiah’s sinister headshot (one cannot really dislike The Dude). It wouldn’t be a complete Iron Man poster without Tony Stark, Pepper Potts and Iron Man’s classic pose. I hope the fans of the movie will appreciate it. I know for sure I had a blast doing it and I’m very happy with cleverly used foil this time around.”
The IRON MAN by Gabz poster will be released on Wednesday, September 2nd on the Grey Matter Art website shop page at a random time between 1:00-2:00 PM est.
