Mark Englert Director Series – Kubrick
The Cinematic Artist Of The Moment
On July 26th 2013 artist Mark Englert embarked on his first solo show at the iconic Gallery 1988 East on Melrose Place L.A. The show was entitled Director Series: Kubrick. It’s was an entire show of limited edition poster prints based on the motion pictures of legendary film director Stanley Kubrick. The show as you can imagine was a huge success and Englerts name (although relatively new at the time) went on to become known as one of the most impressive and sought after artists in the business today.
The composition of his now iconic 36’ X 12’ landscape prints are always stunningly detailed and effortlessly capture the very essence of the films in which they represent. Some of his prints even offer a glow in the dark feature that depicts an entirely different image (see below) to the one seen in daylight.
While most of these limited edition prints sold for approx $50 on release, it hasn’t stopped them reaching record prices on the second hand market, with some going for more than 9 times they’re original price. With Marks name continuing to grow in popularity and his imminent return to Gallery 1988 this year with a new (yet to be announced) Director Series, it seems the young artist is destined for great success.
Take a look at his Gallery 1988 Kubrick series below as well as some of his other cinematic works over the last few years, and be sure to keep your eyes peeled for his next show.
