Doaly – Pop Culture Poster Art Exhibition | 14th Aug – 8th Sept

Nothing is bigger in cinema right now than the superhero movie — blockbusters like Avengers: Endgame, Spider-Man Far From Home and Captain Marvel are now front-and-centre in modern pop culture!

So it’s no surprise that specially-commissioned poster art has seen a paralleled rise in popularity and creativity, and UK-based digital illustrator Doaly is among the most inventive poster artists in the industry (with clients including Disney, Pixar, Marvel, LucasFilm, Warner Bros, to name but a few).

We’re proud to welcome Doaly to the Orbital Gallery this summer, with a choice selection of his comic book themed posters on display from 14th August – 8th September, and a range of smaller A4-sized prints available to purchase in-store.
