Purveyors of “fine art from the future”, Bye Bye Robot have released four new poster prints in celebration of Star Trek’s 50th anniversary.
Need some new geeky art that’s worthy of hanging on your wall? You’ve gotta check out Bye Bye Robot. In addition to tons of great Star Trek prints, the art shop is offering up four new prints celebrating Trek’s 50th birthday.
The prints are on sale for $25 each.
The first of the anniversary designs was created by returning artist Cliff Cramp. His 18”x24” sized “TOS 50th Crew” poster shows a group lineup of the iconic crew of the Original Series. An ethereal view of the USS Enterprise behind the crew portraits, the transporters operating below, and the use of vivid colors serve to create a bold image commemorating this momentous anniversary of Star Trek.
The second piece celebrating the 50th Anniversary was created by returning artist Jeff Foster. Titled “Exploring the Unknown,” his 18”x24” sized, predominantly blue-toned, vision of the USS Enterprise gliding through uncharted territory toward a lighted section of space represents the exciting sense of exploring the unknown that was featured so greatly throughout the entire series. Foster’s unique style of using only a palette knife (no brushes) on his originals may also be seen in his depiction of the 50th Anniversary logo in the lower corner of the design.
The third piece in the 50th Anniversary group is by returning artist Mark Brayer. His distinctive style is noticeable immediately with his strong use of graphic shapes and illustrative linework in the detail. The balance between the ship and the commemorative logo draws the viewer’s eye all the way through this design honoring the ideas, views, and long-lasting appeal of the show. This 16”x18” print entitled “ST 50” is a variation on his book-cover style offerings.
The newest artist working with Bye Bye Robot, David Owens, created the fourth 50th Anniversary print, “The Bridge.” At 12”x24” this new design offers a wide view of the USS Enterprise bridge from an angle that is rarely seen. This scene is framed by the bold red, yellow, and blue colors of the TOS bridge and its structural elements. Bye Bye, Robot Co-Founder Charity Wood noted, “Being without crew, this image allows the viewers’ imaginations to create the story of this piece. It allows for endless possibilities of what might happen next and the anticipation of seeing the crew rush in through the turbolift doors at any moment.”
