To celebrate 20th Century Fox & Bryan Singer’s latest mutant flick, “X-Men: Apocalypse” they commissioned several artists to create vivid posters based off characters in the film. The posters where then ‘Xhibited‘ at their Manchester Lowry, Edinburgh Omni, Leeds Kirkstall, Aberdeen, Birmingham Star City, Cardiff, Cambridge, Sheffield, Fulham Broadway & Westfield London locations. Fans could go online to their FACEBOOK PAGE and vote for their favorites. VUE then chose winners to receive the prints. (We only WISH we could have won these!)
A few members of the Posse contributed prints and here is what they turned in along with a few words from each artists about their piece.
MAGNETO by Chris Skinner
“I wanted to portray Magneto with a sense of history and religion to emphasize, “The Four Horsemen” aspect. I’ve depicted Magneto using his power to control and form the metal debris to suit his purpose.”
PSYLOCKE by Matt Needle
“I’ve included a couple of Easter Eggs, including Psylocke’s butterfly aura, an element from the comics where Psylocke has a butterfly aura emanating from her eyes when powering up.”
Cyclops by Doaly
“I’m really looking forward to watching a younger Cyclops discover the ability of his powers as he becomes one of the leaders. People may notice the hints of lightening in the piece – this nods at his fight with Storm in the film.”
