Awesome "Retro Modern" Superhero Illustrations

French artist and illustrator Grégoire Guillemin created these incredible "retro modern" superhero posters, taking clear influence from Bauhaus and Art Deco movements and 1930s advertising. He says, "As the name suggests, this is an "exercise in style" or rather a confrontation between two cultures: a personal culture forged during my childhood through comics books (among others things) and a professional culture nourished with the beginning of advertising."

 

"The whole idea was to give a new vision of the superheroes through the graphic vocabulary of famous illustrators. Of course, I was also trying to stick to the psychology of the characters shown. I wanted to refer to the same work of painters from different periods, to give meaning to the term 'art geek.' "
