TASS Poster Recreation

POSTED BY , ON August 26, 2011, 3 COMMENTS

In order to demonstrate the complexity of creating one of the stenciled posters in the TASS exhibition, the Prints and Drawings department worked with contemporary artist Alexis Petroff to recreate the poster titled The Moralistic Wolf.

But instead of working with an assembly line of individuals, Petroff did all the steps that TASS studio workers would have done himself besides creating the original artwork. The finished poster took many dozens of hours to make and includes approximately 40 colors and a dozen precisely cut stencils. Check out the video above for a more comprehensive look at his incredibly detailed process, putting those color-by-number drawings you did when you were younger to shame.
