Miami Film Festival has selected Argentinian designer, photographer and graphic artist Juan Gatti, founder of Gatti Studios in Madrid, as the official poster artist for our 34th edition.
Having recently lent his seductively ornate style to Faena Hotel Miami Beach, Gatti is renowned for his work as an illustrator for advertising agencies, magazines, and record covers.
For over 4 decades, Gatti has contributed some of modern cinema’s most unique credit and title sequences, in films for Pedro Almodóvar (including Women on the Nervous Breakdown, High Heels, Broken Embraces, Volver), Alex de la Iglesia, Manuel Gómez Pereira, Susan Seidelman, Félix Sabroso and many more.
He has worked as a designer in New York, and Madrid, with other fashion and culture greats through the countercultural movement in the 1970s, and held the post of art director of Italian Vogue, as well as art director of CBS Records.
Gatti was bestowed with Spain’s National Design Award in 2004 and the Gold Medal for Merit in Fine Arts in 2009.
On October 12, 2016, Juan Gatti was our honored guest at the beautiful Faena Hotel Miami Beach, where a collection of his film credit sequences was screened, and the 2017 poster was revealed to the public for the first time.
