The Oscar results may be in, but Shutterstock is nowhere near ending their lasting tradition of honoring all the nominees with their Oscar Pop! series. Every year, Shutterstock designers create alternative posters of Best Picture nominees, modeled after the styles of popular pop artists. This particular series wasn’t only seen as a celebration of the nominated films this year, but also of the 30th anniversary of the death of well-known pop art artist Andy Warhol.

The Warhol-themed piece was based on the film Fences in the style of the artist’s Gun paintings.

“The series was a commentary on culture and mortality, which seemed like a good fit for this poignant film,” said the designer of the piece, Terrence Morash.

Andy Warhol is just one of the many artists that influenced the style of this year’s series. Which also include Eduardo Paolozzi, Roy Lichtenstein, Peter Blake and more.

Shutterstock usually centers Oscar Pop! posters around a collective theme they see serving as backbone for all nominated films. This year’s theme centered around ’emotion’ and ‘spectacle.’ ‘Spectacle’ is best represented by the poster of La La Land, showcasing Eduardo Paolozzi’s colorful collage style. To where ’emotion’ is captured in the poster for Best Picture Oscar Winner Moonlight in the more minimalist style of Richard Blake.

The collection, as a whole, offers a fresh and unique interpretation of the most celebrated films of 2017.
