For it’s forthcoming exhibition, LWL 70, at London’s Kemistry Gallery, Little White Lies magazine has commissioned a series of images to celebrate legendary films from the 1970s. Each of the new works is by a different artist and has been created in the style of magazine cover artwork…

Artists exhibiting at the show – which runs from this Friday June 17 through to July 2 – include Malika Favre (her image of Liza Minelli for the film Cabaret is shown above), Siggi Eggertsson, Ian Wright, Craig Redman, Paul WIlloughby, Paul Davis, and Jules Julien. Here’s a sneak (and, we’re told, exclusive) peek at some of the artwork:


Ian Wright
‘s cover for David Lynch’s 1977 surrealist masterpiece, Eraserhead


Autumn Whitehurst‘s cover for Russ Meyer’s 1970 film Beyond The Valley of the Dolls


And this is Jesse Auersalo‘s Suspiria (dir. Dario Argento) 1977cover

“The idea came from something we were doing in the magazine,” Little White Lies’ Paul Willoughby explains of the exhibition. “We were doing an Apocolypse Now issue and we wanted a visual feature for the magazine that showed how covers for LWL might have looked in the 70s when a particular classic film came out. We drew up a list of classic 70s films and then commissioned our favourite illustrators to create a cover for each of the films.”

LWL70 runs from this Friday June 17 – July 2 at Kemistry Gallery, 43 Charlotte Road, Shoreditch, London EC2A 3PD.
