El Topo


Limited Edition silkscreen print by artist Martin Ansin in 2010. This is a rare variant edition for the grindhouse classic.

Martin Ansin: "The design of this poster is heavily influenced by the symbolism of Jodorowsky's "El Topo".
Behind the presentation of the characters of the film, lies a geometric arrangement that relates to the Christian and Eastern symbolism in the journey of the main character. The original inspiration for this arrangement came from totemic culture and geometric religious shapes, such as mandalas.

For instance, on this poster the five faces can resemble a Christian cross, hinted at by the lighting on Jodorowsky's face, and relating to the downfall and "rebirth" of the main character at the end of the first half of the film. Also, the composition shows two triangles—described by the hands and bottom face, and the three top heads and hats—forming a shape similar to a unicursal hexagram, allegedly used in mythology to express the belief that one can eventually become some sort of a divine figure, a theme that runs through the film."

Silkscreen Movie Posters have become extremely popular with movie lovers and art enthusiasts worldwide. They have also become an exciting alternative to digital cinema posters of today and many collectors have directed their attention to these beautiful pieces of art that have to be seen in the flesh to be fully appreciated.
