Hungarian artist Gabriella Kere is testing your film buff status with her incredibly paired down versions of iconic movie posters.
Presumably, if you’re into film, you can recognise posters from your favourite blockbusters whether they’re Gone With the Wind, The Godfather or any of the Harry Potter franchise, but could you tell what movie was being represented if every element of the poster was substituted with its basic geometric shapes?
This is what Gabby wondered when she, a self-proclaimed lover of good movies, embarked on her poster project. Now on show at Curzon Soho Cinema, London, the minimalist posters are stunning to admire. They are artworks in and of themselves in their simplicity and bold colour and, as an added bonus, they also challenge the brain.
Inspired by the artist’s favourite blockbusters and cult classics, the collection is innovative and fun. So the question is, how many can you guess correctly?

- A Clockwork Orange
