Greg Staples Dracula Frankenstein Vice Press Universal Monsters Movie Poster


On Tuesday the 26th of January Vice Press and Bottleneck Gallery will be launching a new series of limited edition Universal Monsters movie posters and art prints by British artist Greg Staples.

Greg Staples is best know for his work on British comic 2000AD and artwork for Magic the Gathering but also regularly contributes towards film and game design and most recently has worked alongside director Neil Marshall on a number of projects.

'For me the classic Universal Monster films have been engrained into me since I was a child, not only with their legendary visual design and makeup but because they are almost not of this world. To me they are the purest form of escapism and something that simply couldn’t be made in this day and age. I decided to approach these illustrations a little differently by choosing to try to add a bit of realism, hopefully to capture a small part of their character so wonderfully portrayed by Boris Karloff and Bela Lugosi. This really was an honour.' - Greg Staples

Working closely alongside Universal and the estate of Bela Lugosi, this officially licensed series kicks off with pieces for Dracula and Frankenstein and feature Greg’s amazing paintings that beautifully capture Bela Lugosi and Boris Karloff in their iconic roles. Both versions of the art are available in a regular edition movie poster in an edition of 195 priced £44.99, and a variant edition art print in an edition of 175 and priced £49.99. Both prints are 24x36 inches. There will also be smaller art prints available featuring Greg’s original paintings.

There will also be the opportunity to add a signature by artist Greg Staples to your print for an extra £5.
