Lord Humungus from the timeless film, Mad Max 2, directed by George Miller."Kjell Nilsson plays this legendary bad guy who wears an iron mask, a leather neck brace, studded underwear and shows off a shiny, ripped and hairless torso recalling an S&M gay esthetic that was quite revolutionary for its time. Laurent Cotta, a curator at the Paris fashion museum explains that, “In the early 80’s, unless one frequented S&M bars, or was part of the gay community, the general public was not able to recognize these cultural references that came from S&M porno. [Lord Humungus]’s style spoke to an exuberant homoeroticism.” We are reminded by Florence Müller, fashion historian, that “The first gay pride parades date back to ‘76/’77. At the time they were quite shocking and harshly controlled by the police. This film brought a part of the underground gay culture to the general public” (Telerama, 04/05/2015).In collaboration with the talented silkscreen studio, Atelier du Grand Chic, I opted for a low-angle nightfall shot in black and white with phosphorescent ink that offers a hypnotizing dimension to the portrait. The posters have already been printed on Italian paper (260gr/m2) and the results have far exceeded my expectations. I am positive that this collector, limited edition, hand signed and numbered poster (only 50 prints!) will captivate you. " Mat Peq Elvisdead
