Post-Punk, Goth And New Wave: Artist Replaces Frontmen And Women With Protagonists Of Film Classics

Robert Smith From The Cure In David Lynch’s Eraserhead (1977)

Accordign to an artist: “I am Butcher Billy and I’m an illustrator and designer based in Curitiba, Brazil. I’ve worked with Netflix, Marvel, Black Mirror, Honda, Warner, Amazon Prime, Playboy, Stranger Things, New York Times, Universal Music and others.

This is the latest art series in my ongoing project with post-punk, goth and new wave bands from the late ’70s/early ’80s. This time I’m imagining a multiverse in which the protagonists of black and white cult film classics, from celebrated directors, are replaced with my favorite frontmen and women in music. Each piece will include seminal songs or lyrics that strangely may or may not have taken inspiration from those films.”
