pop-illustrator duo craig and karl work miles apart  – craig redman from NY, and karl maier from london. it is a conversation with pictures…
see the designboom interview here.

 

 

their latest artwork goes across both the opera and concert programmes of the bavarian state opera, an institution founded in 1653 under the
instruction of princess henriette adelaide of savoy. the munich-based opera company has premièred the work of some of the genre’s greatest composers,
notably wagner and mozart, and is still considered one of the best in the world.
the poster series is announcing the forthcoming 2012-13 season of the staatsoper: a series of orchestral concerts and the opera premieres.
craig and karl opted for a clear delineation between the two.
for the concert versions they’ve used a bolder, more expansive palette whilst for the operas a more limited palette of only two or three colours.
obviously in relation to the theme and appropriate to the mood of each.
