Mariano Arcamone Iggy Pop South American Tour 2016 Poster

This is Mariano Arcamone's poster for Iggy Pop's South American Tour 2016 that finished last Friday night in Buenos Aires and included: Colombia, PerĂº, Chile, Uruguay & Argentina.

Lithograph, The poster measures 12"x 36".

Mariano was extremely honored to have done this poster, he love's Iggy's music and would have never imagined that 10 years later from his last concert in Buenos Aires with The Stooges, he would be doing a poster for him!

About the concept,
I got inspired by one of the lyrics from his latest record: "Death is the pill that's tough to swallow". So instead of working with a pill, I thought it would be cool to do this mix between a skull and a traditional South American infused drink, called "Mate". "El Mate" is prepared by steeping dried leaves of yerba mate in hot water and is served with a metal straw from a hollow calabash gourd.
I also include the David Bowie's lightning bolt in the background as a little tribute to Iggy's great friend. So, Iggy has a skull ring and now he has also a skull "Mate".
Mariano has a small run of posters to sell, for copies please email him
