Description

From Helenyi, Tibor's estate. 1981. 50 x 50 cm. Oil on canvas. Hungarian poster design for Ridley Scott's science fiction horror film, Alien. The film was directed by Ridley Scott and starring Tom Skerritt, Sigourney Weaver, Veronica Cartwright, Harry Dean Stanton, John Hurt, Ian Holm and Yaphet Kotto.
The painted poster artwork is a colourful and surrealistic composition, showing only a part of the final version of the poster which contains black surroundings and text. The painted version perfectly reveals the method of Helenyi: he caught the athmosphere of the movie, but not with depicting original characters of it, he created an own vision instead with the mixture of a spectacular classic painterly approach and the visual world of his contemporary popular culture. The amazing result can be seen in the painted artwork.
