Contra - NES oNe Sheet Art Show

  • Scott Balmer

My Contribution to Gallery 1988's latest exhibition NES oNe Sheet where one sheet posters are created based on popular NES games.

When I was contacted to see if I would be interested in doing an exhibition where the theme was to make one sheet posters of NES games I jumped at the chance to make mine based on Contra, a run and gun game from the 80s.

Right from the beginning I was wanting to use the level 3 boss in some way since the waterfall stage is the best level in the game and to have Bill & Lance firing everything they've got at it seemed like the best opportunity to make this.

This Contra piece is available as a limited edition of 30 prints and can be bought through Gallery 1988's online store:
