The Bruce Springsteen Poster was inspired by the song Brilliant Disguise from the album Tunnel of Love. In this song, Springsteen asks what lies underneath the mask that people often wear in public. Sometimes the answer is darker than you think, and you might not get the answer until you really get to know someone more closely. However, in this poster, “the Boss” is anything than dark. He’s disguised as a native american which for me symbolizes peacefulness, strength and a close connection to the earth.
This poster is a part of a 7-piece series of famous musician where one of their songs are used to give a twist to the image. The series consists of scenes with Michael Jackson, Mick Jagger, David Bowie, John Lennon, Johnny Cash and Freddie Mercury.
