"Savior Of The Universe" Flash Gordon movie propaganda poster painting by Stephen Andrade
Savior Of The Universe (Original and Poster)
Acrylic on Masonite Panel; Acrylic and Digital
17" x 28"

The 1980s FLASH GORDON film (the one with the rockin' soundtrack by Queen) is one of my favorite guilty pleasure movies. I wanted to evoke the feeling of WWII propaganda and recruitment posters, hence the "Uncle Sam Wants You!" pose. After the painting was completed I added the text and the distressed, tattered look in Photoshop to further enhance the poster feel.
