At the Movies… Art Inspired by Global Cinema, Part 1

“Kabuki” by Jon Jacobsen (Chile)

It’s awards season in Hollywood, and while everyone in Showbiz is making predictions about which movie will win the top prize, we’ve been paying particular attention to all the foreign films. What can we say? We love movies from around the world almost as much as we love art from around the world.

We’ve rounded up a list of the year’s most celebrated international films and present them here with a sampling of art by Saatchi Online artists working in the countries that produced the films.

    :S

    It’s a very vague connection that’s been made for the theme of this article. I thought it would be art that was directly inspired by films, but they’re artworks taken from artists living in the countries of those films.

    They’re good pieces, no doubt about that, though.
