One can explain the concept. You love that which you can lose: Yourself, a woman, a homeland. Until today love was simply unattainable to mankind, to the earth. These are so few of us. A few billion altogether. A handful! Maybe we’re here in order to experience people as a reason for love.

Solaris

Victo Ngai

I am so excited to announce the release of my Tarkovsky’s Solaris poster for Black Dragon press. 18”x24” 6 colors hand-pulled screen print in limited editions printed by White Duck Screenprint on 270gsm Mohawk Superfine Ultrawhite Eggshell paperOriginal is on sale now. Variant will be on sale tomorrow. 

Solaris by Tarkovsky is an absolutely stunning and haunting movie. It was a great yet fulfilling challenge to capture its eerie beauty and the openness of the story plot. I am very thankful to James Park of Black Dragon and AD Nico Delort for having so much faith in me. Being able to approach the project with my own interpretations of the film definitely makes the posters extra special for me.

NOW GO GET ONE BEFORE THEY ARE GONE!
