English artist Olly Moss has established himself in Geekdom as a Jedi Master of the art world with his simplistic re-imaginings of popular sci-fi, horror, and comic book movie posters, video game art, and his regular presence in Empire magazine. Inspired by Moss’ acclaimed ‘Paper Cuts’ series exhibited at the sold-out solo show at LA’s famous pop-culture Gallery 1988, Silhouettes from Popular Culture is the kind of coffee table book you’d find in Joss Whedon’s living room. Full of beautiful, victorian silhouettes of popular culture heroes like Special Agents Mulder and Scully, The Terminator, and Buzz Lightyear. Flipping through this book is a ridiculously fun experience for even the casual geek, but it will also satisfy The Simpsons' Comic Book Guy in all of us with Moss’ lesser-known inclusions like Admiral Ackbar, Saul Tigh, and O-Ren Ishii. Honestly, I could go on and on about how strong the Force is with this book, but in order to truly understand the kung-fu in between its pages, you need to see it. Hence, I was implored to create this short video of a few of my favorite pieces featured in Silhouettes from Popular Culture. Enjoy, my geek brethren.
As you can see from the video, Moss’ Silhouettes from Popular Culture is a must-have for any fashionable fanboy (or fangirl)! You can find out more about Silhouettes from Popular Culture at the official Titan Books website, and the book is available for purchase on Amazon.com.
