Nicolas Bannister Pays Tribute to Fictional Vehicles from Back to Front [Art]
The Batmobile. Kaneda’s Bike. Doctor Brown’s DeLorean. Nicolas Bannister recognizes that, even if it doesn’t play a starring role in a story, an iconic vehicle can be an important supporting character. In his Banncars poster series, he illustrates those vehicles with their tails facing toward us, ready to drive away at any moment.
Bannister did a similar series focusing on fictional footwear, but this one works quite a bit better. Perhaps it’s because he explores the geometry of the cars, or because of the moody scenes with the distant figures and luminous colors.
