Esoterica poster art revealed!

14 May

George Shevstov as 'Van Cleef'

Perth portrait artist Jenna Niven has completed work on three different character posters for upcoming noir thriller ‘Esoterica’.  The three one sheet posters feature James Helm as ‘Will’, Melanie Munt as ‘Nancy’ and George Shevstov as the enigmatic ‘Van Cleef’.

Niven elaborates on the idea behind the posters:

“The Esoterica posters were conceptualised based around the idea of creating an engaging, striking image which intrigues the viewer rather than slapping them in the face with the plot of the movie. Instead, the story line is conveyed in the atmosphere created through the use of a singular, shadow hidden, figure in black and white. Three different posters, with three different figures allows the viewer become more engaged and more curious about the movie.”

The original poster art, along with Niven’s other works will be showing in Fremantle at The Moores Building Contemporary Art Gallery from 22nd May to the 6th June as a part of Niven’s joint exhibition entitled ‘We Are Not What We Look Like‘.
