Cinema graphics is a playground for YKMF, aka You Killed Me First, the Las Vegas-based street artist who masterly mimics the poster style that ruled before Photoshop drove movie Key Art. In this piece, presumably titled “The Man with the Golden Paste,” legend graphic designer Saul Bass is channeled in this wheat-paste homage to simple geometric form. The arm holding the tool of visual deconstruction adds charm to the selling of the target product; the street art process of water, flour, boil, and paste. It’s an addictive method of art, almost as bad what a junkie in an 1955 Otto Preminger film feels.
