True Craftsmetalship…Viral Graphics

Athens-based Viral Graphics has become a new never-ending source of joy for me. Their gig posters are truly stunning, and capture the spirit of the bands they represent. When I saw the amazing Utech Records Music Festival poster, I had to find out who was behind it. So I found Alexandros Pyromallis and Konstantinos Psichas, the co-creators and founders of Viral Graphics, who have done amazing work for bands like The Melvins, Electric Wizard, Sons Of Tonatiuh and Trap Them among many many others. Pyromallis and Psichas are serious about the art form of the gig poster, and each piece is created as a collectible, which is so awesome in the day and age of internet flyers. They also appear to be working on an art zine called Bacteria, and from what I have seen so far, it is packed with beautiful yet sinister renderings of animals and insects. They work in a psychedelic realm of inspiration, whether in color or black and white. Their fonts are highly original and perfectly in tune with their graphics, and their choice of colors is simple but they play off each other harmoniously. After the jump, check out a selection of their gig posters, album artwork and some sneak peak pages of their Bacteria zine…
