Peter Strain’s first solo London exhibition is at the Coningsby Gallery from 7th-19th January 2013.
The project looks to reinterpret classic and cult films posters. Much of the modern imagery associated with film marketing contains banal, spliced together pictures of the main actors with no soul or meaning behind it. Strain says ‘I want to create artworks that reflect artistry, skill and the importance of Cinema’.
