Plenty of blockbusters and classic sci-fi movies have gotten the collectible artwork treatment from Mondo, Gallery 1988 and more, but the modern classic Silence of the Lambs has rarely been afforded such a tribute. Previously, Mondo had Caesar Moreno create a couple of pieces, and Ken Taylor crafted one a little while back as well. But now it’s Grey Matter Art showing some love for the Best Picture winner from 1991 with a gorgeous new print (and variant) from artist Florian Bertmer.
