Roadburn Festival 2015: Official Poster Art For Skuggsjá, Enslaved and Wardruna by Costin Chioreanu

Posted on Thursday, November 13th, 2014

Costin Chioreanu has returned for the third year in a row to help set the visual tone by creating official poster art for some of the bands playing the 20th edition of Roadburn Festival (April 9-12 at the 013 venue in Tilburg, The Netherlands). We are proud to unveil his official posters for Enslaved, Wardruna and Skuggsjá, the sound of Norway’s Norse History. Feast your eyes and see what has sprung forth from the fertile imagination of this highly talented visionary artist.

Costin Chioreanu  has been creating album artwork for over a decade. He started out illustrating his band’s demos, but would soon be influenced by circumstances in post-Communist Romania, too. In the mid-1990s, metal fans in Bucharest were lucky to find bootleg cassettes with badly photocopied covers. Undeterred, Costin simply made his own using Heavy Metal Magazine, the country’s sole heavy music publication, as a reference.

Today, he has emerged as one of the most talented artists in the realm of avant-metal and dark psychedelica, producing work for the likes of Darkthrone, Ulver, Triptykon, At The Gates, Neurosis and Opeth. Whether the images he conjures are disturbing, provocative or enchanting, they consistently show great finesse, sensitivity and depth.
