"They bring beauty into this world" by Laurent Durieux was one of the posters created to promote his own exhibition "Mondo Gallery Presents: The Art of Laurent Durieux" in 2014. This example has been signed and hand-numbered #33/325 by Durieux. An alternative movie poster for Alfred Hitchcock's "The Birds" Durieux had this to say about the composition: "The bloody beak of the crow is a direct reference to the scene where the neighbour is found in his bedroom by Jessica Tandy with his eyes missing. I originally wanted to place an eyeball in the crow's beak, but I thought it was a bit too gory for a Hitchcock movie, so I toned it down a notch".
