Arcade Fire poster by Alex Trochut

This poster created by Barcelona based artist Alex Trochut, using denim, embroidery and bleach.  The piece was commissioned as a gift for the band by Another Planet Entertainment.

We grabbed a few words from Alex about his inspiration for the piece:

“It was a long process, totally analog, no computer (which was a good change), a real image I think is what fits with this amazing band. I wanted to capture their complexity of sounds and feelings, the rapture moments I feel when I hear their songs.   A mix of joy, nostalgia, and pain.  I feel they touch real life topics from a very emotional angle, and I thought denim was a good way to cross tradition and their indie mood.”

You can see more of Alex’s work on the Levine/Leavitt site.
