Posters and Wall Art
(Hopefully there isn't a thread like this already. Don't hate!)

I've never been much of a poster person, but I have a poster that my dad owned growing up. He framed it and left it in storage and when we moved into a new house, I decided to have it up in my room:


popartuk.com

My brother has this in his room, but I think I'm going to steal it soon because he's already moved out to go to uni.

I can't find the poster online, but here are the pictures from it. It came in a tube because my mother ordered The Beatles 1 cd from the tele, and the poster came as a bonus.


majorlycool.com

When I was younger, I had Titanic and two Spice Girls posters. (But they are still cool.)

Anyone else?

I collect posters of exhibitions (and any exhibitions materials) ...
I don't have a lot ... but still ... something like 50 (and 3 carboxes of exhibitions flyers + 3 shoes boxes) ...

and none of them hang on my walls ...

I used to have a lot of posters in my teens, too. like a huge poster of Jennie Garth from 90210 ... human size ! not ashamed at all ! I never really bought music posters. But I guess I have one or two ...
About music, I want the Joy Division famous poster. But never bought it ! I guess one day I'll buy it !


And I have few fashion posters ...

Oh and I own a small piece of a John Armleder wall-paiting-sticker ...

What I have hanging on my walls...
. an inspiration poem
. post it notes
. 1996 calender (It has a photo of me at 4 yrs old)
. rip outs from magazines
. postcards
. art (some of my work and one print by my friend)
. jacket of Harry Potter 7
. school timetables
. posters of art exhibitions
. ripouts from Ikea catalogues:


image from my flickr photostream

It kind of feels like I have real potplants and vases with flowers in front of my workspace.

I think they're international
Those posters for some reason remind me of a Soviet art of the beginning of the XXth century.

I have the posters from French Connection when they started "The Man" & "The Woman" campaign a few seasons ago. I also pick up prints or artworks from conventions though I haven't framed any yet.

I really love posters. Where I live it's really not common to have non-white walls or wallpapers so all my walls are white and it looks very bleak if you don't have any pictures or posters up. (Of course I could just paint my walls but I can't be bothered to do that when I know I'll have to re-paint them white once I move out of my flat)
I really love the idea of poster printing services. I just ordered posters of these images on posterjack.com:


1-3: milesaldridge.com, 4,5: fashionologie.com

I also have some South Sea pictures in my living room but I find those quite boring already because you just see images like that in every furniture shop
