  • Description

    Each poster measures 70 x 50 cm, screen printed color by color in Uppsala,
    Sweden, on 230 g natural paper. The 10 different posters are limited to 100
    copies each, handnumbered, stamped and signed by the artist.

    The Watain poster series consists of 10 individual Watain posters created by
    Erik Danielsson / Trident Arts for Watain concerts between 2010 and 2015.
    Previously only used for online purposes, this is the first time these posters
    are printed in large, physical format.

    Erik comments: "Every time Watain has been booked for a festival I have made a unique
    artwork piece for the event, both out of need (since festival posters always
    look horrible) and out of the will to underline the graphical essence of
    Watain. I have also taken the liberty to only feature bands from these festival
    line ups that Watain has something to do with in one way or another, bands that
    fit into our universe and whose logos blend in well with our visual idea. An
    artist creates his own world on his own terms, and these posters are exactly
    about that.

    While far too many bands end up using whatever graphic that comes their way, we
    have always been cautious to not let anyone else speak on our behalf in that
    regard, since I believe that graphical art is as important an element in a band
    as a song or a lyric. These posters -behind which lay many days and nights of
    work- are a result of this approach, and it feels good to have them available
    now in this noble large scale format for those who appreciate such things as
    much as I do."

    Erik comments on poster 1/10:

    "The poster for the Brooklyn show is a Cut 'n Paste collage made out of several drawings by myself and from a 1930s novel called "Blood" by Hans Heinz Ewers. I wanted to create the anti-thesis to a modern day Brooklyn concert poster and in doing so emphasize the ancestral and ceremonial aspects of the event. The concert ended up being described in the media as the "Brooklyn bloodbath" and in the light of these hysterical reactions of fear and awe, the design somehow becomes even more diabolical."
