Horde and Alliance supporters alike will have much to celebrate on May 27th as The Legendary Art Series unveils the latest addition to its growing gallery of commissioned art pieces with a pair of graphic prints inspired by the embattled factions at the center of WARCRAFT, the upcoming film from Legendary and Universal Pictures. These limited edition collector’s pieces have been created by acclaimed artist, Kevin Tong, known for his striking screen-printed posters for major bands and high profile movies including five previous collaborations with Legendary Pictures for The Watchmen, Batman Begins, The Dark Knight, The Dark Knight Rises and Pacific Rim.
To create his unique vision, Tong worked closely with Legendary and the WARCRAFT filmmakers to capture the look and feel of the film. “From the moment the movie started, I knew I wanted to make a visually dense and textured poster that reflected the traits and characters of the warring sides,” said artist Kevin Tong. “I also wanted to make sure there was a sense that the viewer was glimpsing just a small sliver of a much larger world with two opposing sides headed for inevitable collide.” Tong was so successful in this pursuit that his “Alliance” print is also being featured as the cover of the soon-to-be-released graphic novel, WARCRAFT: Bonds of Brotherhood, also available in the Legendary online store beginning June 7th.
These exclusive art prints are available to purchase as a pair of 18”x24” matching numbered prints, one for The Alliance and one for The Horde, in two different metallic colorways. Priced at $80.00, the vibrant set of prints is exclusively available at http://shop.legendary.com/products/warcraft-art-prints and includes an artist signed silver foil certificate of authenticity in an edition of 195.
The creative alliance with Tong for the Legendary Art Series, is just the latest example of Legendary’s ongoing mission to showcase daring new creatives by collaborating with both prestigious artists, and the next wave of undiscovered up-and-coming talent.
