De Genere poster series

This series of limited edition posters is a spin-off¬†of one of my object-stacking project which I call “Small totems”.¬†The occasion for these trashy poster designs was an exhibit of my small totems that was held¬†between October 2016 and January 2017 at All’Origine in Imola.

I chose quite randomly some pictures to work on, both among those that have already been published to my Instagram and those which have not.

At this point I started working on them layering a series of icons and solids in an attempt to make the poster design interact a lot with the subject of the picture rather than declassing it to a backdrop. The first set of elements I designed was this alien-like alphabet of squiggles. Then I started adding complexity.
