From Tortona in Italy comes (arguably) the most imaginative and distinctive trios in the world of rock poster art. In this predominantly American world of rock posters the work created by Poia, Lu and Urlo (Malleus) is immediately recognizable with shades so distinctively European. A Malleus rock poster not only captures the spirit of the band but they beautifully capture the spirit and traditions of their homeland. Iconography is at the forefront of their work and vast scenery including figurative arts, in particular Expressionism, Symbolism, Art Nouveau, Surrealism, Pop Art, Psychedelic Art and also comics, photography, cinema and literature. All these ingredients blend in with the main element of their poetics; the female form, the primordial goddess, from whom everything comes. 

At the centre of Malleus' art we often find beautiful, yet mysterious women. Usually this is accentuated by occult symbolism worked into arcane textures. All of their work is based on masterful hand-drawings and reflect the artists' deep understanding and love for music. Malleus' extensive catalogue of posters created to date includes works for acts such as: Beck, Blues Explosion, Brant Bjork, The Cure, Deftones, Dinosaur Jr., Eagles of Death Metal, Flaming Lips, Helmet, Iggy Pop & The Stooges, Kings of Leon, Mars Volta, Melvins, Mogwai, Mark Lanegan, Mudhoney, Muse, Nine Inch Nails, The Prodigy, Robert Plant, Queen of the Stone age, Sonic Youth, and many more... 

The work of Malleus has been displayed in various collective and individual art shows. They have been included in "Art of Modern Rock", the gig poster gospel by Paul Grushkin and Dennis King, in "Art of Modern Rock: Mini #1 A-Z" and "Art of Modern Rock: Mini #2 Poster Girls" by Dennis king, in "Swag posters" by Judith Salavetz and in "A fistful of Rock'n'Roll" by Sal Canzonieri.
