    Belgium illustrator Laurent Durieux is best known for his retro-inspired movie posters. His work has graced the cover of The New Yorker, the sleeve of a Criterion Collection DVD, and the walls of Mondo gallery.

    Laurent Durieux worked for two decades as a designer and teacher, relatively unknown outside outside of Brussels. That all changed after he contributed a piece, François à l’Americaine, for a show celebrating the French director, Jacques Tati. This led to Mr Laurent being selected as one of the top 200 illustrators by Lürzer’s Archive magazine.

    In 2011 Laurent Durieux released a short animated film, Hellville, which was shown at various film festivals and earned him and his team a Gold Hugo Award nomination.
