The job of film poster artists is to bring people to the cinema. Renato Casaro brings the cinema to the people.
Which poster are you particularly fond of and why?
I love them all, as if they were my children, but if I had to choose, it would be The Sheltering Sky for the way it brings all the elements together, and The Last Emperor for the great mystical impact of the composition and the atmosphere, named Best International Poster in 1988 by ‘Hollywood Reporter’.
KNOW MORE ABOUT THE ARTIST
From the beginning the 7th art, the film, with the paintings for movieposters was considered as minor art; nearly by itself it merges with the 3rd absolute art, the painting. From this combination bloomes a new scenery: The painting for the movies.
In the worldwide panorama of this art Renato Casaro is definately one of the outstanding names.
