Bongout

Unique hand-painted movie posters from Ghana from an exhibition at Bongout:

Unique hand-painted movie posters from Ghana.

Using the resources at hand, artists would paint on old flour sacks they have stitched together. The painters were allowed complete freedom to create fantasy spaces within their own vision. Perhaps not even seeing the movie, and with only a few film stills as reference, the painters added imagery they felt would make the posters more spectacular.
