Before They Were Heroes – Poster Art by Khoa Ho

By on September 2, 2013, in Concept Art
Khoa Ho is a California-based artist whose recent series of posters feature the origin of all our favorite comic book heroes. He said: “In this poster series I took a dive into the origins of these individuals and who they were before they became superheroes to remind us that despite the trials of our past, what we choose to do moving forward is much more important to us and the world we share.” He also added that “Everyone has a memory, a past. It’s the driving force behind all of our actions for our present, our future.” The posters are rendered in bold black & white and despite his minimalistic approach, each character is easily recognizable, even without the two-word descriptions beneath. he also did a similar (but colored) series with the characters from Toy Story.

He obtained her Master’s degree in 1995 from the same university. His work has extensively been exhibited throughout the world. One of his more recent work tackles the touchy subject of obesity by featuring an adorable, but undeniably fat Sumo wrestler. Fat is fat, but there are two ways of looking at it. While an excess of adipose tissue may be unattractive to Westerners, in the East, it’s a sign of decadent wealth. After all, only people who can afford to be fat are those who can afford to eat more food than they absolutely have to.
