So my latest love of Rock Posters has already posed an interesting Dilemma. Art vs Band. Now thinking about this, my instant reaction would be art of course.So my latest love of Rock Posters has already posed an interesting Dilemma. Art vs Band. Now thinking about this, my instant reaction would be art of course. If the poster is amazing it doesn't matter about the band, but the more i think about it, and look around, the more apparent it becomes that it does matter.
Now if the poster is for a band you haven't heard of, then maybe you can go in and buy blind. Hoping that if you ever do hear this band they will blow your mind (just like the poster). But what if they are awful and then become big, and your beloved poster is moved to the bathroom just so that it is in a less prominent place when you get visited by the cool kids. Or do you just think fuck it.. this poster is amazing i love the art work, the band is irrelevant.
I am not sure i have an answer to this one. I know that if i really really hate the band, then i don't think i could bring myself to buy the poster, but having said that, maybe i would. Its something i need to think on further.
Anyway the thing that sparked this dilemma is the poster at the top of this. Its by an ultra talented UK artist called Drew Millward (Cov born and Leeds based) who's work is blowing my mind! I love the said poster, but am far from a fan of Hard Fi, so would i want it in my collection?? Probably not, even though i think that the design is awesome!! What I do know is that i definately want something of his in my collection, thats for sure.
I think we will be seeing much more of Drew's work (probably on here ;) . Please go check him out at drewmillward.com
Love this Gallows one, can def see a Koa influence in there!
