These Pop Culture-Inspired Posters Are Designed to Look Like Postage Stamps
Florida-based artist Clark Orr’s playful, pop culture-themed prints re-imagine seminal movies, TV shows, and comics as vintage postage stamps. As Gizmodo reports, the works are currently featured in a new exhibit, "Pop Culture Postage," at Gallery 1988 in Los Angeles.
Orr’s father "is a sign painter from the old school," the artist told online art magazine IAmTheTrend, which may explain his vintage aesthetic. As for influences, Orr grew up reading comic books, and watching cartoons like Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Transformers, and The Real Ghostbusters, so many of his works reference the media he loved as a young boy.
Check out a sampling of Orr’s work below, or visit Gallery 1988’s website for more information. The prints are available for purchase, and are sold in two sizes: mini (5 x 7 inches), for $10, and regular-sized (9 x 12 inches), for $35. Framed editions are available for $85.
