Movie Posters by Sickert

We’re trying to beef up our list of German movie poster designers on the Meansheets, so I thought the art of Munich-based Hans Peter Sickert might be a nice start. During the 70’s and 80’s, he worked with everyone from Andy Warhol to Wim Wenders, and his style does indeed have a dreamy Guy Peellaert-quality, who was also a frequent Wenders collaborator.

Peelling Back The Years…

Once dubbed “The Michelangelo of Pop Art”, Guy Peellaert (1934-2008), was probably most famous for his 70’s rock album covers and psychedelic art/music/fantasy book, Rock Dreams. But he also happened to create the haunting poster for Taxi Driver, and quite a few others. And although he passed away a few years ago at the age of 74, you can still check out his official website here.
