Middle Boop's Retro Film Profound Quote Series puts a different, type-based spin on posters based on classic 80s posters, which is great as we've got a little sick of reimagined movie posters – especially 'minimalistic' reinventions, which personally I'd be happy to never see done ever again.
For this series, however, Middle Boop – aka Gordon Reid – has taken some pithy quotes from the films and worked them up in a bold graphic style. Each is surrounded by little hints and references to the film the quote is from.
The works are about to kick off a US tour: starting at the Bottleneck Gallery in New York August 8th for a couple of weeks, then to the Hero Complex Gallery in LA September 26th-October 12th, and then popping up on Toronto at a date and place to be confirmed. Gordon will also be showing some prints based around Pacman, which you can check out a couple of here too.
You can also buy prints of the series from Big Cartel.
