In this macabre tale of Scottish legends, witches, hallucinations and power, Shakespeare’s bloodiest couple thrash against the rise of their own consciences. The bard’s most disturbing tragedy, Macbeth is a compelling psychological and political thriller that follows Macbeth’s transformation from battlefield hero to bloody tyrant, revealing the human soul’s darkest depths.
Ivan Zuno was born in the beautiful city of Guadalajara, Jalisco, Mexico but raised in Southern California. He is a self-taught artist and has been drawing as far back as he can remember.
“I learned to draw by watching and studying the people, places, and things of my everyday life. My work has been described as a clash between fine art and street art with influences ranging from graphic novels to tattoo art. I am uncommitted to any particular medium and love working with pencil, ink, acrylics, oils, aerosols, and digital mediums.”
Ivan’s subject matters of interest include political issues and their movements, religion/spirituality, human rights, equality, global current affairs, unapologetic self-expression, and “anything that can spark up a conversation.”

As part of my research to find the right inspiration for the design of my poster, I watched Justin Kursel’s “Macbeth” and watched several videos that highlighted important portions of the story. I quickly discovered that Macbeth is a very complex character and a big bag of mixed conflicting emotions.
In my design, I exaggerated his reach of the left arm to emphasize his desperation and ambition to become king under the witches’ obscured prophecies and with the almost unwillful assistance of his wife in his quest to conquer. The witches are designed as a silhouette in the background to show how they’re both an afterthought but also a subconscious powerful influence in this entangled story.
