Munk One (Florence, Italy Poster)
Munk One, an illustrator, fine artist, and political cartoonist from California, created this medieval skeleton poster for Firenze Rocks, Florence, Italy, June 19, 2022.
This show marked Metallica's first time performing in Florence. Well-known for creating artwork for global brands and major label musical acts, Munk One's work is filled with darker elements dealing with religion, mortality, and politics, balanced by bright colors and a sense of humor. Munk One cites the Japanese concept of "mono no aware" as an important theme in his work. Translated as "the pathos of things," it describes an awareness of life's impermanence.
