Rumor has it that AIP (American International Pictures) would create their posters before filming even started tantalizing the audience about the upcoming movie. In this gallery you can easily see why. These masterpieces of vintage horror cinema could easily be placed among cherish fine art pieces and stand for themselves... well, maybe without the creatures and bikini girls.
American International Pictures (AIP) was a film production company formed in April 1954 from American Releasing Corporation (ARC) by James H. Nicholson, former Sales Manager of Realart Pictures, and Samuel Z. Arkoff, an entertainment lawyer. It was dedicated to releasing independently produced, low-budget films packaged as double features, primarily of interest to the teenagers of the 1950s, 1960s, and 1970s. Nicholson and Arkoff formed ARC in 1954, and their first release was The Fast and the Furious. ~ WikipediaExplore More ...

Informed by everything from art nouveau to ukiyo-e woodblock printing, from the full-throttle art of SoCal's "kustom" car culture to the dynamism and self-assured lines of comics, Ewing's work fuses his own creative explorations of perspective, color and space with classic, beloved imagery from rebellious American youth culture: hot punk girls, totally rad skulls, and fields of color aflame. In this way, his work embraces a particular playful naiveté, which he then continues to champion even as his style refines itself and as his technique develops. Ewing reminds us we never have to give up the imagery that fired our imaginations as teenagers; his own success is a signifier for how dearly we hold our own trappings of rebellion, and how they can become a vehicle through which one can mature. With a roster of clients ranging from Metallica and the Warped Tour, to The Strokes and Death Cab For Cutie, and even The New Yorker and a number of advertising agencies, Ewing's resume is a testament to what we love most about music, art, the allure of drama, lust, danger and darkness.www.brianewing.com
