Damien O’ Reilly: B Movie PostersPlanners | Saturday 3 February  – Sunday 20 May 2018 | VISUAL Centre for Contemporary Art

Before the advent of what would become known as New Horror, the B Movie was a staple of the cinema-going experience. A big budget movie would often double-bill with a smaller less mainstream film. Without the limits of trying to appeal to a large market or paying attention to a demographic, the B movie was a thing of unbounded creativity and uncensored ingenuity. B Movies is an ongoing series of illustrations inspired by the low budget Sci-fi and Horror movies of Golden Age Hollywood. They have been created using pen and marker and the movies depicted don’t actually exist – they are a shadow celebrating a bygone era.

Born in Dublin and educated at West Wales School of the Arts where he studied Graphic Design, Damien O’Reilly is a Graphic Artist and illustrator currently living in County Wicklow, Ireland. His illustrative technique is a result of an amalgamation of interests including old science drawings, info-graphics, retro Sci-Fi movie posters, and obscure diagrams.
