Drew Struzan – Film Posters

North Bar, 24 Upper Briggate, Leeds, opening times vary, FREE

Following many years as a starving and impoverished art student, Drew Struzan began his career designing album covers, including the infamous Welcome to My Nightmare design for Alice Cooper and Sabbath Bloody Sabbath for Black Sabbath. His movie poster career took off when he was asked to design an image for Star Wars, which immediately brought him international recognition and demand. His long standing collaborations with George Lucas and Steven Spielberg has seen him create some of the most iconic film posters of all time.

Leeds International Film Festival and North Bar are proud to present an exhibition of his work spanning his illustrious 40 year career.

He’s back. No one learned their lesson last year, so now Gramsch has returned, with more of his comic-inspired ‘art’ festooning the walls of, this time, the wonderful North Bar.

Come have a delicious beer while you take in the colours & shapes given strangely human names, and set to pondering; “isn’t that….?”
