DRIVE by Rory Kurtz & THE AVIATOR by Jonathan Burton

Two of our most anticipated films of the year are expanding wide in theaters this week, Ryan Gosling in LA LA LAND and Martin Scorsese’s SILENCE. In celebration we're releasing a pair of posters for some of our favorite films also featuring these tremendous talents, on sale tomorrow via mondotees.com.

DRIVE remains one of our favorite movies of the last few years. Ryan Gosling instantly cemented his portrayal of the “Driver” as a modern cinematic icon, and director Nicolas Winding Refn expertly used an equally iconic L.A. setting as more than just a backdrop as the city took on a character in itself amongst the violence and mystery at play. Rory Kurtz blew us away with his output in 2016 and when he told us he loved the film, we knew immediately this was a perfect fusion of artist and property. He did not disappoint.

THE AVIATOR is Martin Scorsese and Leonardo DiCaprio's depiction of the compulsive nature of Howard Hughes, a man whose life spanned many decades and obsessions. When deciding on an artist for the project we knew we needed someone who could capture the grand history of Mr. Hughes. Jonathan's art perfectly depicts both the frantic energy and old Hollywood charm of the HELL'S ANGELS sequence, portraying Hughes as both man-of-the-sky and cinematic rebel.

The regular and variant versions each represent specific color palettes in the film. Scorsese and his team created two unique palettes (Technicolor inspired two color and vibrant three-strip) to approximate the technology of the film industry in the movie's time periods.
