With the 85th Academy Awards taking place on Sunday we thought we would highlight this fantastic piece by Brad Faine that pays homage to the Oscars.
Brad Faine is known for his grid style works into which he packs a huge amount of information as well as beauty. Id Like to Thank... is composed of a grid of still from every film that has one the Best Picture award since the Oscars started in 1929. Included in this illustrious line up are stills from classic films such as Gone With the Wind, Lawrence of Arabia, My Fair Lady, The Godfather, One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest and Silence of the Lambs. The grid is numbered according to the year the film represented won the award. Covering the length of the grid is the famous silhouette of the Oscar statuette.
