For ONE NIGHT ONLY on October 26th,
OASIS: SUPERSONIC plays in theaters nationwide.
To celebrate this momentous intersection of music and film, A24 commissioned two artists and one design collective to create posters that imagine the unique documentary release as a musical event.
Each artist a fan of Oasis, the works created are a direct reaction to the film and the relationship of Liam and Noel Gallagher.
“The thing that most defines Oasis to me, besides the huge songs, is the dynamic between Liam and Noel. I wanted to make something that reflected the braggadocio and sibling rivalry but also showed how it gave way to something massively successful yet reckless at the same time.”

Friends of Type
“All of us in Friends of Type have been Oasis fans for years. For this poster, the lettering is inspired partly by ’60s psychedelic posters and the doodles we’d make of our favorite bands when we were in high school. We wanted it to feel like an imaginary gig (or circus) with all the information being taken from different events, coming together for this ‘One Night Only’ gig.”
Friends of Type are a group of four friends whose obsession for lettering, typography, and letterforms bonded them together to form their collective.
“I chose to paint Liam and Noel embracing each other in a wrecked hotel room because I like their dynamic of being chaotic and charming at the same time.”
