Shutterstock paid homage to 10 artists with reimagined posters for this year's Oscar-nominated movies

Movie posters typically stick to a certain aesthetic in order to show audiences who stars in a film and entice them to buy a ticket. But every year, stock photo provider Shutterstock celebrates Oscar season by reimagining the posters for nominated films in different styles of pop art. From a Keith Haring-style chaos for Get Out to a Mel Ramos-inspired cartoon girl for Lady Bird, each of this year’s posters draws inspiration from the work of famous artists. Other artistic homages include Olly Moss, Ed Ruscha and Takashi Murakami.

“This year’s nominations illustrate a wide range of time periods from the early days of World War II to modern day America, each with a storyline that is primarily dramatic in nature making them the perfect inspiration for a new, more colorful interpretation,” Shutterstock’s curator Robyn Lange said in a press release. “This is a creative tradition we look forward to every year and it is an opportunity to display the incredible artwork of our contributor community while also celebrating the talent of visionary artists, directors, producers and designers.”
