Sri Lankan-born artist Paul Weerasekera has been living in Ireland for 25 years and recently moved to Dublin having spent most of that time in Limerick. Trained as an architect, Weerasekera also studied art and design in the UK, before making his way over here, and the artist currently teaches in both Limerick and Dublin.  His most recent series of paintings, ‘CINEMA’, transports famous movie characters onto canvas and has been on display at Filmbase as part of Dub Web Fest. The exhibition ends with the festival tomorrow, but all of the paintings from this exhibition remain available for purchase, with proceeds aiding the Irish Cancer Society. From old Hollywood icons like John Wayne to Christopher Nolan’s take on Batman, Paul Weerasekera’s paintings cover a wide range of Hollywood history. We have a gallery after the jump with just some of the paintings that make up the ‘CINEMA’ exhibition.

If there’s one thing that Quentin Tarantino is known for (apart from his love of feet), it’s his ability to craft unforgettable imagery. Whether it’s a blood-splattered tableau or dancing in a diner, Tarantino and his cinematographers are always guaranteed to come together and make beautiful images that linger long in the memory. What’s more, the movies of Quentin Tarantino always have great posters, hardly a surprise given how the ‘coming soon’ posters of the grungy grindhouse and video store are so firmly part of the Tarantino aesthetic. Everybody knows someone who had a Reservoir Dogs poster on their wall in college and if you don’t, chances are it was a Pulp Fiction poster. With that in mind it’s hardly surprising that artists from around the world would be inspired to make fan posters of their own for Tarantino’s movies. To mark the Sugar Club’s ongoing Tarantino Week, we’ve collected some of the best fan posters around based on the movies of Quentin Tarantino. The most fitting tribute that can be given to these is that they would have made just as good posters as the originals. Enjoy the gallery.
