Art Deco, an eclectic and artistic style that germinated in 1920s Paris, has inspired all spheres of design including jewelry, fashion, industrial design and even these comic book adaptations by Greg Guillemin.
We've already covered the work of Guillemin, including his 'Pop Culture Capsules' piece which turned many heads and challenged the recall memory of an entire audience, but this new project, which remains untitled, required a robust familiarity with not only art deco stylings, but mid-century fashion and a cursory interest in comic book heroes. Whether the piece takes on Batman, the anti-hero Hellboy or even the infamous Iron Man, Greg Guillemin manages to ensure the same aesthetic while including elements of futurist and neoclassical paintings. The decidedly ostracized world of graphic novels rarely interacts with the refined realm of conventional art, yet this pop artist was capable of cleverly melding the two without diminishing the appeal of either.
