Prometheus Poster by Gabz Release From Grey Matter Art


Grey Matter Art is excited to announce it’s next release! In partnership with Acme Archives and Dark Ink, under license from 20th Century Fox, GMA will be revealing a new screen print for the film, “Prometheus” by the very talented artist, Gabz (Grzegorz Domaradzki). GMA have always been huge fans of the Alien franchise, director, Ridley Scott, and H.R. Giger, and they couldn’t be more thrilled with how this print came out. “Prometheus” comes in 2 separate editions, a regular & variant edition.

I'll be honest, when I opened the email from GMA about this, first thing I said was "Wholly Shit"

Artist: Gabz
Size: 24x36
Regular Edition: 225/$45.00
Variant Edition: 150/$60.00
Printed By: Lady Lazarus

This is Gabz's artist statement regarding "Prometheus":
'I've been a fan of Alien franchise since the very beginning and always enjoyed terrifying yet mesmerizing worlds created by Sir Ridley Scott, so I couldn’t be happier for having a chance to work on an officially licensed print for Prometheus. The idea for this poster struck me after re-watching it for the third time and I almost instantly started drawing... For me it was a sort of back to basics, because the image was entirely made with pencils on paper, later scanned and digitally enhanced in Adobe Photoshop, and later color separated for screen printing. I’m pleased to say it’s practically a personal work and really wanted to thank Grey Matter Art guys, Acme Archives Limited and Dark Ink Art for letting me do this piece my way. The idea was to depict Architect’s pale and godly profile with a human fetus inside his skull. Attentive viewer should be able to spot at least few references to xenomprph and H.R. Giger’s work that inspired "worlds scariest alien”. The title is “Creator of Men” or simply “Architect” and my intention was to yet again pay homage to Polish Poster School which is very close to my heart not just because of my origin. With this print I also wanted to somehow recollect my earlier years, back when I was an art student and was absolutely obsessed with anatomy and human body in general. Hope fans of the franchise will appreciate my take on the film."
This Poster will be released on Wednesday, March 22nd at 1PM EDT at
