Sao Paulo Sociedad Anonima - Oliva 1968

One of my favourite Cuban posters, Sao Paulo is for a classic of the Brazilian new wave. The film depicts an anonimous and difficult city life in Sao Paulo and paints a grim picture of life there. Thanks to Oliva's superb graphics which imitate Roy Lichtenstein's cartoon style this ICAIC poster is garish and dramatic, and it probably had a hard time conveying the negativity of the film.

Cool posters. I am a movie poster collector and am just starting to really appreciate Cuban movie posters. They have very talented artists there.

That seems to be very colorful and attractive. Its very eye-catching too. I too use this type of catchy designs for my business advertisement. I get it designed from Posterninjas.
