Screen printed vintage cigarette ad poster for Quentin Tarantino’s fictional cigarette brand ‘Red Apple’ for the Product Placement Show at Gallery 1988, Melrose in March 2013.
Old cigarette ads are pretty special. Outrageously sexist stereotypes and not-so subtle innuendo feature heavily in the adverts of the 60s and 70s so I wanted to create something in the spirit of that time, as well as evoking the endorsements from medical professionals that appeared in cigarettes ads a little later. Constructed with nods towards Tarantino’s films.
24” x 18” 4-colour screen print on 350gsm Sirio stock. Signed, numbered edition of 75.
The prints are now available through Gallery 1988 and the prints I have won’t go on sale until the gallery stock is low or depleted. If you’re in the UK and want for avoid shipping from the US, then follow me on twitter for updates.Go To Shop Buy From Gallery 1988
