ART - Suzuki Poster Overload

We've got a trifecta of custom Seijun Suzuki poster art for you starting with this amazing festival poster.

Graphic designer Jon Wong, created this striking poster for a film festival dedicated to cult Japanese director Seijun Suzuki. Here's what he had to say about this work...

"Beast in a Neon Cage is the name of a film festival project for legendary cult director Seijun Suzuki. The name for the festival is a metaphor for the characters that appear in Suzuki’s films: gangsters and crooks who on the surface appear civilized, but underneath are wild beasts that are stuck in the “neon cage” of the Tokyo nightlife. Building on that idea and the psychedelic imagery of his films, the festival’s visuals burst with color. The sharp angles reflect the on-screen chaos and the cartoon imagery hints at the dark humor that frequents Suzuki’s work."

Next is great comic book inspired poster by artist Ian MacEwan showcased as part of  a yakuza-eiga inspired art show called BATTLES WITHOUT HONOR AND HUMANITY.  

Finally this fan-made Tokyo Drifter poster, artist unknown, has a serious Wes Anderson vibe.
