Vamers - Artistry - Superhero Origins Captured in Iconic Black and White Minimalist Posters - Banner

All superheroes have a start, an origin story that has defined the kind of people that they have ultimately become. These humble and often traumatic beginnings form the basis of a series of minimalist works of art by California based artist, Khoa Ho.

The concept behind Ho’s ‘Superheroes: Past/Present’ series of posters stems from the notion that “despite trials of our past, what we choose to do moving forward is much more important”. The series features superheroes from Marvel and DC universes, namely Wolverine, Iron Man, Spider-Man, Flash, Batman and Superman, and each poster has a unique title that succinctly reflects the heritage of each portrayed character.

The striking silhouettes in Ho’s work, therefore, provide an eye catching contrast between the superheroes and the events that shaped their ‘super’ identities. As such, each poster offers a poignant reminder that some of the most popular and powerful superheroes have had very modest beginnings, which should never be forgotten and always remembered.
