Escape From New York GABZ Movie Poster

Next week Grey Matter Art is going to make a lot of people very happy with the first ever official licensed John Carpenter "Escape from New York" Poster. They are really excited about this project since they were lucky to be able to work with another one of their favorite artists, Grzegorz Domaradzki or A.K.A. Gabz to most.

The poster is a 24x36, 6 color screen print (Variant has 5 colors) but for right now you can only see the teaser image above. The full reveal will be April 29 so watch out Snake Plissken is coming for you.

Here is what GABZ had to say about the poster:

“When Mike Gregory, co-founder of Grey Matter Art offered me an opportunity to work on John Carpenter’s “Escape from New York” I didn't hesitate much. My main intention was to deliver something a little bit different from what I’ve been known for until now… something less character based more focused on the movie’s atmosphere, and true to the original poster artwork. Being a fan of the original and iconic poster, my print also has post-apocalyptic streets of New York City, gang members, and the majestic Statue of Liberty (or what was left from it) dominating the skyline. Except Snake Plissken, in my version is all by himself: tired, hurt, on the run and fighting against all odds. Perceptive viewers should also notice Snake’s plane crossing the red walls of the New York City prison and the bottom grid which is intended to be a tribute to visual effects used in the movie”.
