A pretty grotesque ” Un Chien Andalou ” poster

Probably the scene everyone remembers from “Un Chien Andalou” (1929, Luis Bunuel) is the opening sequence with the eye getting slit. This shot made it into so many film posters, but Polish artist Wieslaw Walkuski (1956-) came up with a pretty grotesque work of art himself.
He also studied at Warsaw Academy of Fine Arts and then got hired by Film Polski and he now had more than 200 posters to his name and he continues his work as a poster designer, an illustrator and a painter.

I am not the author of this image. All rights go to Wieslaw Walkuski.

NB – Check out this photo of Luis Bunuel & Louis Malle together here
