Check Out Mondo's Latest Paul Thomas Anderson Poster Art Series
by Alex Billington
May 13, 2013
Things fall down. People look up. And when it rains, it pours. My initial reaction to receiving an email with the subject "Mondo Announces Latest Poster Series Featuring Films of P.T. Anderson" was "holy shit!" After taking a look at the artwork, curated by Aaron Horkey for five of Paul Thomas Anderson's feature films (except for The Master), I'm not as excited as I first was unfortunately. The best ones are for Magnolia, which many still call his best film, and Hard Eight. And honestly the There Will Be Blood art ain't that great at all. But that's Horkey's style, if you're into it. Check out all five of the brand new Mondo PTA prints.
Curated entirely by Aaron Horkey, one of Mondo's most popular and respected artists, the PTA series will be sold by Mondo online throughout May. More information and artists details with each art print below.

Quote from Aaron Horkey: "This was my first large-scale curatorial project. It was much more work than I had anticipated, but the end result is something I'm incredibly proud of," said Aaron. "It's been great to see the series come to life and I'd like to thank Mondo for the opportunity, especially Mitch Putnam for helping me with logistics and general organization. Also, thanks to Paul Thomas Anderson for being open to the project and of course all the artists involved - everyone came through brilliantly and certainly salvaged the project before I had a chance to run it into the ground." Exact sales dates and costs are listed above. Follow @MondoNews for updates. I prefer Magnolia and Punch Drunk Love, but probably won't grab any of these.
