E-Kunst Exclusive!
  • 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 3/10:

    "Watain's performance at the Swedish festival Getaway was preceded by a week or so by a massive forest fire near the region of the event. Clouds of smoke drifted into Uppsala and hovered around the spires of the great dome. There was a scent of looming disaster in the air. It was very inspiring, and the artwork for the poster was a result of that. In contrast to the sublime motif of the design, old and rotten half tone patterns were also employed to add a texture reminiscent of underground movements capable of starting huge fires."
