While dozens of artists are busy dying for their approach to the movie poster art, the public relations team in charge of THE GENTLEMEN by Guy Ritchie is arriving on Thursday and has completely changed the game. STXfilms today presented a new poster for THE GENTLEMEN that, no joke, was made using the cannabis plant as a means to create images of the film's cast. I can't help thinking that if Matthew McConaughey was here right now, he would be saying "Well, that's fine, it's fine."
For the new impression, STXfilms commissioned artist Zach Fernández, also known as Jesushands, who is a self-taught multimedia artist and entrepreneur based in Los Angeles, California. According to today's press release, art became a cornerstone of his life at an early age as a form of communication during his turbulent childhood. Jesushands is famous for an artistic installation executed on New Year's Day 2017, when he only altered the Hollywood sign to say Hollyweed. Since then, he launched his own legal cannabis brand, titled Hollyweed by Jesushands, debuting in the cannabis licensed B2B HALL OF FLOWERS, in 2019. Jesushands continues to participate in several art exhibitions and installations in Los Angeles, highlighting the surrounding culture. cannabis and art, something he coined to be "Pot Art". He is also a dedicated music producer.
