It’s pretty obvious how much we love Doaly’s work. As one of the newest members of the Poster Posse the man has already turned in an impressive amount of top-notch work and there is no end in sight. That’s a good thing because it means we get more gems like his latest piece that features both Batman AND Superman.
We spoke to Doaly about this fantastic print and here is what he had to say. My approach was to give both characters an equal standing but not dilute or paint them with the same brush. I could not reconcile one aspect of them that I felt was strong enough on a visual basis that could justify not splitting the poster into two halves, and even though the poster is two halves they are two halves of the same piece one is incomplete without the other.
For his latest piece entitled Batman V Superman Doaly has brilliantly highlighted the similarities between two of DC’s move beloved heroes. Superman, the alien boyscout who harnessing the sun’s rays for power and strength. Always making the right decision, always in the public’s eye.
Turn the poster over and like any coin, you have the flipside. In this case it’s Batman, a.k.a. the Dark Knight. The ever vigilant detective who operates in the dark, utilizing the power of the night to provoke fear in his opponents. Always in the dark, away from the public’s gaze, dancing a fine line with what’s right and wrong but ALWAYS focused on the greater good.
Here is what the artist had to say about this latest piece over on his WEBSITE. For this print I wanted to create a piece that you could hang either way round and change around as you argue with friends who would win in a fight Batman or Superman. The piece contrasts the two heroes against Gotham and Metropolis as well as hinting on their personalities being night and day apart . So there you have a dual poster that should please any Batman or Superman fan.
Good news for fans is that the print will be available on Doaly’s Society 6 Shop Page sometime next week! That being said….don’t wait! Head over there now to check out all the awesome art he has to adorn your walls with. Be sure to follow Doaly on TWITTER to get updates on when as well as info on new, upcoming projects. The man has talent for days and I can’t WAIT to see what he does for our 4th Poster Posse Project.
