"I’ve never known life without Spider-man.
There was always a doll, a motorized buggy, a comic, a cartoon, and I always had a poster on my wall.
The idea was so simple; a boy navigating the perils of high school, confused by his own changing body, confronting authority in the form of mutated beasts and monstrosities.
This frail, wimpy bookworm would soon become the friendly champion for a city that needed him.
As a kid, I didn’t realize his impact on me, how that abstract Spidey mask would become the face I associated with so many ideas: pain, fear, responsibility, and triumph.
I wanted this poster to capture how tortured the world of teen Peter Parker was and how this little spider could overcome any obstacle, no matter how big or terrifying. " - Ciro Nieli
