Artists Go Hollywood: Movie Poster Mock-Ups


Courtesy of artist Tim McCool at our blogfriend Hyperallergic comes a wish list of artist biopics, complete with mash-up movie posters. They are amazing, and not just because we’re on-the-record art-history nerds. Pollock was worthy Oscar bait, Vermeer-vehicle Girl with the Pearl Earring was less so, and hey! Anyone remember Basquiat? That wasn’t bad. But what if Meryl Streep co-starred with squiggly glass artist Dale Chihuly in a riff on Julia & Julia? Yes. Just, yes. Click through to see McCool’s artiest film imaginings and give us your best suggestions for other movies in the comments.
