John Alvin – incredible movie poster artist


You probably haven’t heard of John Alvin, but if you’ve seen a movie in the last 35 years then you’ve seen his work. John was a movie poster artist and was responsible for some of the most memorable movie posters ever created. Sadly he passed away early last year but has left behind an incredible legacy of artworks to enjoy. Posters for everything from Bladerunner to The Goonies, from Blazing Saddles to Empire of the Sun. A remarkable talent.

Considered the pre-eminent movie campaign artist of the past 35 years, Alvin’s career began in 1974 with his creation of the iconic movie poster for Mel Brooks’ “Blazing Saddles”. He most recently contributed design ideas for the campaign for Disney Studio’s “Enchanted”. In a career that encompassed multiple projects for such directors as Steven Spielberg, George Lucas, Blake Edwards, Mel Brooks and Ridley Scott, Alvin was considered by many studios as the go-to artist for movie poster and campaign art. John Alvin said that his work “created the promise of a great experience” and in that he never failed.
