‘Melt My Heart’ by Gabriel Picolo on Sale Info

‘Melt My Heart’ by Gabriel Picolo on Sale Info

Last year, we were excited to announce our exclusive partnership with artist Gabriel Picolo through the release of his officially licensed Trollhunter print.  Since then, Gabriel has gone on to create a stunning set of work that has garnered a lot of praise among his fans.  To this date, he has yet to make his personal art available to the public but, this year, all that will change.

As a thank you for all the support, we have decided to release an open edition of his first piece in the Icarus and the Sun series, Melt My Heart.  It’s one our personal favorites and one of the most requested pieces Gabriel has made to date.  If you haven’t been following this series, check out his tumblr page which shows them all off. They’re pretty great and could easily work as a short romantic comic.  If you want to see more of his work, follow him on Facebook or check out his Instagram.

Melt My Heart will be a 10”x10” archival giclee print on Somerset Velvet fine art paper and will cost $25.  The print will go on sale April 7th at 12pm EST via the FAMP Art website and will ship worldwide.

‘The Battle of Algiers’ by Jay Shaw + Shipping Update and Congrats to Ennio Morricone

‘The Battle of Algiers’ by Jay Shaw + Shipping Update and Congrats to Ennio Morricone

Continuing FAMP Art’s tradition of shedding light on some of the greatest foreign films ever made, we’re excited to announce our next officially licensed release for the 1966 seminal Italian/Algerian co-production, The Battle of Algiers.

Considered one of the most influential political films ever, Gillo Pontecorvo’s The Battle of Algiers focuses on an important year in the Algerian struggle for independence from the French in the 1950s.  As time goes on, the level of violence rises as the Algerians utilize guerilla tactics to attack French soldiers and civilians while the soldiers opt for torturing the insurgents.  Filmed in a vivid documentary style on the streets of Algiers, The Battle of Algiers is as relevant today is it was 60 years ago due to its study of warfare in the modern age, terrorist attacks vs the harsh techniques used to counter them.

Gillo Pontecorvo’s incredibly important film still remains on many “greatest films of all-time” lists and was nominated for three Academy Awards.  The score was composed by the legendary Ennio Morricone (who just won an Oscar for his epic Hateful Eight score) and shot in a documentary style to bring us into the heart of the conflict.  The film showcases both the French and Algerian points of view so as to be as balanced as possible, choosing not to show any sort of favoritism to one side.

To capture the essence of the film, we teamed up with artist and designer Jay Shaw to illustrate a poster that would be representative of the film and the struggles within.  The design is simple, bold and, with the events going on around the world today, some might say even risqué.  The film’s origins are in multiple languages, but we opted to release a print with the French title treatment, acting as a balancing mechanism to the Algerian focused illustration, similar to the way the film is structured.

The Battle of Algiers by Jay Shaw is now on sale via the FAMP Art website. The screen print measures 18”x24”, costs $35, and is an edition of 40. The print ships WW except to Italy. If you’ve ordered a print already, they should start shipping this weekend. Prints were held up on the way to us and we hope to have them in hand by Wednesday.

City of God Synopsis:

The streets of the world’s most notorious slum, Rio de Janeiro’s City of God, are a place where combat photographers fear to tread, police rarely go and residents are lucky if they live to the age of 20. In the midst of the oppressive crime and violence, a young boy will grow up to discover that he can view the harsh realities of his surroundings with an artistic eye. In the face of impossible odds, his brave ambition to become a professional photographer becomes a window into his world and ultimately his way out.

The Labours of Hercules – Gallery of Every Piece in the Show

The Labours of Hercules – Gallery of Every Piece in the Show

Over the past two weeks, artists and various art websites have revealed details about all the pieces in our first gallery show, The Labours of Hercules.  If you’ve been following us on Instagram, Facebook or Twitter, you’ve probably seen us posting all of these images as well as close-up shots of the printed art.

In case you haven’t had a chance to see all the art in one place, below you’ll find a beautiful gallery containing all the art for the show, including the artist’s name, the edition size of the print and the actual print size for each piece.  Some pieces, like the Glyn Smyth one, look a little different in person or, like Lucas Ruggieri’s, may have an original, which is why we’ll be posting nice shots of the printed pieces on the blog as well as detail shots so you can see just how great the art is on paper.

Enjoy.

 

FAMP Art Presents: The Labours of Hercules – Full Line-up and Show Details Announced

FAMP Art Presents: The Labours of Hercules – Full Line-up and Show Details Announced

Labours of Hercules show card 2

13 Artists. 12 Labours. 1 Hercules.

On December 12, 2015, FAMP Art will be hosting its debut art show titled The Labours of Hercules. This show marks our first foray into the gallery space and we are looking to make a splash in a legendary way.

Mythology is one of the most fascinating aspects of ancient Greek culture and the Heroic age, specifically, is responsible for the stories about some of the most well-known figures in history, in particular, Heracles, or, more popularly known by his Roman name, Hercules.

With a desire to curate a unique show that would allow for fun artistic freedom and a break from the standard pop-culture art show, we decided to continue our mythological streak, which started with DZO’s ‘Dragon’ release, and focus on the stories that made Hercules such a legend. 12 artists were selected and assigned one of Hercules’ labours that they could interpret in their own way. They could focus on the labour itself, the interaction between Hercules and the labour, or focus on the aftermath. A 13th artist was then selected to illustrate a piece focusing on the man himself, Hercules. The show will include a variety of screen printed pieces, a few giclee prints and couple of originals from artists all around the world.

The event will take place on Dec 12th at Bottleneck Gallery, located at 60 Broadway, Brooklyn, NY 11249, with doors opening at 7pm and at 9:00. The gallery is located in Williamsburg and is accessible by car, bus and subway.

The show is free to attend so be sure to bring some friends There will be free beer, wine and other beverages for those in attendance. As a bonus, we will also be giving out a free print out by artist Glyn Smyth to the first 20 people in line. You can join the Facebook event page here to stay up to date on what will be released at the show.  Pieces will start being unveiled the week of November 30th.

All art that isn’t sold at the gallery will be put online Monday, December 14th and will go on sale at 12pm Est. Prints will ship worldwide.

Below is the full line-up of artists who have graciously contributed to the show along with the respective labours they were assigned.  Click their names to check out more of their amazing work.

Timothy Pittides – First Labour: Nemean Lion

‘Snowpiercer’ by JC Richard Close-up Shots and Shipping Update

‘Snowpiercer’ by JC Richard Close-up Shots and Shipping Update

We were pretty excited to finally announce the officially licensed release of well-known pop-culture artist JC Richard’s take on Bong Joon-Ho’s visionary film, Snowpiercer, earlier this week.  It’s a print that has been in the pipeline for a very long time but we’re finally glad to unveil it to the public.

Under license from Radius-TWC, the sister label of The Weinstein Co, JC’s piece is a beautiful 24”x36” seven color screen print with two metallic inks all over the sacred engine.  It’s an instance where metallic ink is actually used on something that’s supposed to be metallic.  The poster has an edition of 195 pieces and costs $50.

Prints will start shipping Saturday, November 28th and for those who already purchased them, you’re in for something special.  The metallic inks on this piece are subtle and a little tough to capture on camera, but when you see this print from various angles you’ll find it tough to miss how great the metallic inks actually are on it.  As for the rest of the print, it’s just as stellar.  Below are some close-up shots of the art.

FAMP Art Announces First Gallery Show, Adds a New Artist to Their Roster and Announces Next Print

FAMP Art Announces First Gallery Show, Adds a New Artist to Their Roster and Announces Next Print

Hi Everyone,

Thanks to all those that came by our booth this past weekend at Boston Comic Con. We had a blast and it was awesome meeting so many people that are passionate about the same types of films and art that we’re into. You really helped make our first convention experience as a vendor amazing and we’re really excited to do it again soon.

At the con, we had on display a new art print by a new FAMP Artist as well as dropped a big announcement via a show card on the table. The print, displayed below, is called The Naval Battle and it’s a piece by Karl Fitzgerald.

the naval battle

Karl is a British illustrator, concept artist and comic book artist currently working in the South East of England. He creates imaginative worlds and tells stories through atmospheric imagery. Using traditional methods as well as digital tools he is able to create a fresh, loose but focused style. Having been mentored by comic book artist Chris Weston, he has developed a ranged skill set from comic book art to concept design. “My major influences include Moebius, Sergio Toppi, Adrian Smith and Mike Mignola, but I have many artist heroes!” says Karl.

We came across Karl’s work after seeing Chris Weston, who we’ve worked with before, post some of his pieces online. We followed him for a bit and then when he unveiled his Naval Battle piece we knew we had to work with him. As a result, we’re teaming up to release that very print in two versions.

The first is a 28.2″x15.2″ giclee printed on somerset velvet fine art paper with archival inks. It’ll be hand numbered, an edition of 20 and will cost $55.

The second is a 28.2″x15.2″ giclee printed on canvas with archival inks. It’ll be hand numbered, an edition of 5 and will cost $150.

Both versions will go on sale via our website this Thursday, August 6th, at 12pm EST. Be sure to follow Karl on Facebook to see more of his amazing work.

But wait, there’s more!

Labours of Hercules show card

We’re incredibly excited to announce that we will be hosting our first ever gallery show on December 12, 2015 at Bottleneck Gallery. Continuing with the mythology series that we started with DZO, we will be having a show dedicated to the Greek legend, Hercules. The show is titled The Labours of Hercules and will feature 13 artists from all over the world. 12 artists have been assigned to individual labours while the 13th artist will be illustrating his own version of Hercules.

Karl is one of the 13 artists in the show and is responsible for the incredible art on our show card (see above). He was assigned the 10th labour, The Cattle of Geryon, and has created a heavy metal looking piece that has set the bar high for the quality of art this show will have on display in December. Going forward, we will be unveiling one participating artist from the show every two weeks as we build up to the main event.

Be sure to save the date by marking your calendar’s now and subscribe/follow/etc. to stay up to date on our latest releases. Our next movie print is set to drop at the end of August/early September and you won’t want to miss out on it, trust us.

July Update: Boston Comic Con, DZO Shipping, August Print Releases and an Extended Tease

July Update: Boston Comic Con, DZO Shipping, August Print Releases and an Extended Tease

Hi Everyone,

Hope everyone’s summer is going well. We wanted to shoot out an update regarding upcoming pieces, shipping and Boston Comic Con.

Firstly, DZO has shipped us all the pieces for existing orders so we should hopefully have them this week. Once we receive them, we’ll start shipping ASAP. Going forward, DZO will be shipping all the hand embellished pieces directly since they take so much time to work on. This will help cut down the wait time for all involved and so that we can get the prints into your hands as quickly as possible.

Secondly, this week, from July 31-Aug 2nd, we’ll be shipping up to Boston for this year’s Boston Comic Con. We have a booth ready for the convention and will be bringing our current stockpile of prints and maybe even a new print by a new artist before we actually announce the drop the following week. We will also be promoting some exciting bit of news that weekend and giving away a few little things at the booth, so be sure to stop by BOOTH A210 and say hi.

Boston comic con booth instagram

 

Also, remember this tease we posted around New Years? We’ll, the art has finally been given the green light by the studio so expect to see a drop for this around the end of August/early September. We want to have the prints in hand before we drop this otherwise we’d do it this week. In the meantime, here’s an extended version of the initial teaser. If you can’t guess the property from this then you need to head to Netflix right now and crawl the “popular on Netflix” section to give this film a look-see. This piece is going to be 24×36 and it’s going to utilize a lot of metallic ink for things that are actually supposed to be metallic, so get amped. This print has been a loooooooooooooooooooooooooooong time in coming so we’re happy it’s finally getting released.

tease 2

Lastly, once Boston Comic Con wraps up, we’ll be dropping a new art print and announcing our third artistic partnership as well. This will set the stage for August and the next few months as well. Expect plenty of reveals over the next few months.

Be sure to visit the www.fampart.com to check out the latest prints in the shop. Limited amounts left on the DZO hand embellished pieces and The Bicycle Thief variant.

Thanks again for all your support and, if you’re in Boston, we’ll see ya soon.

Cheers,

Alex and the FAMP Art team
