After my Mag+Art and Album+Art, Criterion+Art is the latest addition in my +Art digital collage series. This is inspired by one of my followers’ request to combine movie posters and classical paintings. But I tweaked the idea and used old and new Criterion covers instead. I love art house cinema, and I think this will be a good tribute.
