Be it movies, music, painting or something else, the best art inspires action in the people who view it. Sometimes that inspiration can lead you to change your life, or maybe simply inspires more art. Daniel Kanemoto is a huge Evil Dead fan and when he saw Olly Moss‘ 2010 Mondo poster for Sam Raimi’s The Evil Dead, he was so inspired by the image he decided to do a little animation showing his love of the franchise. The result is now online: a 90 second ride through the three films with a Moss finale. Check it out below. Read More »
One year ago this week, the pop culture art game changed when Olly Moss opened his Paper Cuts show at Gallery 1988 in Los Angeles. Up till then, Mondo posters were popular, people liked cool art, but Moss’ show was a genuine happening that garnered a line 24 hours in advance, featured several famous attendees and gave pop culture art a level of legitimacy it was sorely lacking. Today the pieces sell for thousands of dollars, if you can find someone willing to sell.
At the time, we covered the event extensively, providing the only interview with Moss at the show as well as a gallery of the images and a cool video that gave a sense of what it was all like. This October, Titan Books (who are also publishing the awesome Scott C Great Showdowns book) is bring it home to you. They’ll release a book of Moss’ paper cuts called Silhouettes From Popular Culture. The cover is above. After the jump read the official write up and see a gallery of what can be expected in the book.

An Olly Moss print release has become an event of epic proportions. Lines around the block, thousands of people manically mashing their F5 buttons, angry tweets from people who weren’t able to buy one. Moss is one of the most popular artists working today and, if you read /Film regularly, you’re aware of his incredible talents. Mondo has now put those talents to work on an even more exciting announcement. The poster boutique will start releasing posters for the gorgeous and influential films of Studio Ghibli and the first poster, by Moss, is for Hayao Miyazaki‘s classic My Neighbor Totoro. Totoro, along with many other Miyazaki and Ghibli films, are getting 35mm re-releases in theaters soon.

You all know who Olly Moss is. We’ve written about him extensively, from his humble beginnings with Threadless up through his Mondo prints and the epic Paper Cuts gallery show. Moss’s latest print was revealed at Fantastic Fest this weekend, as part of a screening of the 1981 cult classic An American Werewolf in London and – as usual – Moss doesn’t disappoint. The poster subtly makes the United Kingdom into a monster and got a huge round of applause when it was revealed after a Q&A with the film’s Oscar-winning effects guru, Rick Baker (more on that in the coming days). After the jump, check out both the original and variant editions of the soon-to-be-highly sought after poster. Read More »
