Deadly Prey at Great State Gallery is a showcase of artwork from Deadly Prey Gallery’s large permanent collection of hand-painted movie posters and haircut signboards from Ghana, West Africa. Since the late 80’s movie poster artists in Ghana have given much special attention to making highly dramatic paintings advertising American, West African, Hong Kong and Indian film. Works on display were made from the early 90’s to present day, featuring poster and sign artists from the region such as Mr. Brew, Leonardo, Salvation, Stoger, Awal Sunil Shetty, JA Pastony, Papa Warsti, Heavy J and Sly Fox. Original hand-painted movie posters, prints, limited edition Deadly Prey tote bags & hand-painted signboards will be available for purchase.
