' Geisha' - CAMERA JAPAN Film Festival Poster No.2


Image of ' Geisha' - CAMERA JAPAN Film Festival Poster No.2

IdleBeats has just come out with two new Japanese inspired posters for the CAMERA JAPAN Festival in Holland this fall. The festival is an annual event that celebrates Japanese culture, art, music but especially film.

IdleBeats' own Gregor Koerting was asked to design two great posters for the festival this year. The two unique posters each display a different character from Japanese culture: the geisha, and the tengu. The geisha, more well-known outside Japan than the tengu, is a refined artesian of Japanese culture who is skilled in the art of dance, music, tea ceremony, and conversation. Geisha still exist today in Japan. The tengu, less graceful than the geisha, is a demon known to protect Japan’s mountains and forests. Tengu are still worshiped as Shinto gods in shrines all over Japan.

The theme of this year’s CAMERA JAPAN Festival is “Made in Japan?” which is exactly what the characters on the left hand side of each poster mean. Any western elements you might notice in the poster pertain to this 'made in Japan(or not?)' theme, such as the windmill in the geisha’s hair which is definitely a Dutch element as well as the bucket of popcorn in tengu's hand.

Two posters are both with 4 layers, hand-printed by the artist Gregor Koerting himself. Geisha has an edition of 109 and Tengu only 95. Both prints are on high quality art paper and printed with water-based silk screeen paint. Also every order of a pair comes with a bonus gift!
