When Mondo first announced the upcoming solo show for Laurent Durieux at their LA Mondo Mystery Movie screening, the place when wild. Well now images are starting to show up and to be rather frank with you, they are some of the most gorgeous prints I have ever seen.
Folks on the popular Facebook Page, POSTER BUDDIES and TRADERS are scurrying trying to find “PB’s” (that’s Poster Buddies for you nubes) and given how incredible the work is, it’s proving rather difficult. EVERYONE wants EVERYTHING that Laurent does and this batch of prints is no exception.
Back To The Future 2 – Regular Edition
Back To The Future 2 – Variant Edition
Fan favorites are the “Back to the Future” prints but I am THRILLED to see that Durieux has done an insanely desirable print for one of my all-time favorite films, Hitchcock’s “The Rear Window.”
There is no denying that Laurent Durieux is a true master when it comes to his craft and if I could book a flight to Austin today, I would do it in a heartbeat. Line up early everyone because this show is going to be wall to wall with people and credit cards will most definitely be getting maxed out.
Despite the large print runs on some of these I have a feeling that there will be a BUNCH that don’t even make it to the online sale the following day. Speaking of large print runs, I wonder if Laurent gets writer’s cramp signing print after print, after print, after print…
Personally, and I know that I speak for many, I can’t WAIT to see everything that Durieux is bringing to the table for this show. Given these few prints above, my head is SPINNING with anticipation.
Mondo Gallery, Austin, Texas, the calm before the storm…
This Friday seems like a MILLION YEARS AWAY! Best of luck to all, may you come away with all that you seek.
