Dark Hall Mansion, under license from Warner Bros. Consumer Products, will release Kilian Eng’s futuristic take on the 1956 classic that’s shaped the very template of countless Sci-Fi films to come. Kilian’s interpretation is at once moody and atmospheric, his approach right from the outset was to specifically make his “Forbidden Planet” about this strange far-flung world, focusing not only on environment but tone. At once organic and quietly futuristic, it allows the viewer to search out classic sci-fi elements, not the least of which is one quite unique and ground breaking robot.
Hued in lovely tones, Kilian’s Standard and Variant print editions will be screen printed on foil, allowing restrained highlights of the foil paper substrate to deliberately show through-a sparkling night sky comes to life, glints off a shimmering space ship, and of course, nuanced metal highlights reflect off “Forbidden Planet’s” legendary Robby the Robot. Richly printed in warm tones, Kilian’s Standard edition comes in at 9-colors and is set off by his wildly colored flora, while his stunning 9-color Variant is all pure icy-cool beauty.
All editions measure 24″ x 36,” are hand-numbered, and both Standard and Variant editions will be screen printed on Mirri foil paper. There will also be one giclee printed canvas edition with a unique Kilian colorway that simply cries out for a black light.
Prints go on sale NEXT WEDNESDAY, June 17th, exclusively on Dark Hall Mansion’s dedicated store page at 9:30 AM PST.
