At the tender age of 26, English poster artist Olly Moss is quickly becoming one of the most recognizable (artistic) faces in the burgeoning world of cinematic artworks, whether it be his reinterpretations of iconic films or work to promote new movies.
It is with great excitement that we learned that The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences had chosen this upstanding young man to create the official 85 Years of Oscar poster, and my oh my is it staggering.
"The brief was one of the hardest I've ever had; find a way to reference every single Best Picture winner from the last 85 years," Moss stated on his blog.
Take a good five minutes or so and see how many of the Best Pictures you can recognize right off the bat. Some of them are extremely clever, including Jack Lemmon's character from "The Apartment" with his tennis racket spaghetti strainer, "Rain Man" counting tooth picks, or the very distinctive little girl in red from "Schindler's List."
