Malleus is an artistic and graphic rock-devoted power-trio from Italy that creates handmade limited edition silkscreened posters for the celebration of gigs and events. Their work raises the visual side of Music to an Art level. The trio’s catalogue represents an ongoing study of the female form with roots in mythology, folklore, Renaissance, Symbolism, and Neoclassicism, continuing all the way up to the modern, postmodern and contemporary periods. The idea of the Muse, a central artistic concept as long as history has been history, is the fulcrum of Malleus’ poetics and aesthetics. Malleus' creative process involves different instruments and methods, but the manual art gesture remains their main cardinal point. Malleus has created posters for bands such as: Aphex Twin, Beck, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, Blue Cheer, Blues Explosion, Brant Bjork, the Chemical Brothers, the Cure, Current 93, The Dillinger Escape Plan, Dresden Dolls, Flaming Lips, Iggy Pop & the Stooges, Mars Volta, Melvins, Motorpsycho, Monster Magnet, Mudhoney, Mark Lanegan, Nine Inch Nails, Om, The Prodigy, Sigur Ros, Queens of the Stone Age, Sex Pistols, Sonic Youth, Isis, Tool, Turbonegro, Ufomammut and many more. Malleus has been present in exhibitions from Atlanta to Philadelphia, from Roma to Rio de Janeiro, from Milano to Antwerpen. Several of their works are included in The Art of Modern Rock the gig poster bible by Paul Grushkin and Dennis King.
