New Art Prints by Ise Ananphada and Nikita Kaun – On Sale Info

New Art Prints by Ise Ananphada and Nikita Kaun – On Sale Info

After an amazing 2016, Thai illustrator Ise Ananphada is planning on taking things to the next level in 2017.  We at FAMP Art are massive fans of her original artwork and are honored to release one of her most simple, yet visually striking illustrations to kick off the new year.

The piece is titled Desire and it’s a beautifully haunting image that manages to catch your gaze and NEVER lets it go. Desire is one of a handful of personal projects that Ise has published over the years and we couldn’t be more excited to bring a very limited release to you.

Additionally, last year, we teamed up with Arcadium Gallery to showcase the work of Nikita Kaun.  We each had a selection of old and new art from the talented Russian artist with one of those newly released pieces being Young and Tragic.  Some of the posters from that sold out run were held back for us and now we’re releasing it alongside Ise’s prints.

Both prints will go on sale Tuesday, January 17th at 12pm EST via the FAMP Art website (www.FAMPArt.com).

‘Ragnar’ by Rhys Cooper – On Sale Info

‘Ragnar’ by Rhys Cooper – On Sale Info

In anticipation of the dramatic hit series VikingsTM continuing on Wednesday, November 30 at 9PM ET/PT on HISTORY, FAMP Art is excited to release a new print in our series of officially licensed VikingsTM posters.

For our second release, we teamed up with Australian artist Rhys Cooper to utilize his character oriented banner style and applied it this amazing series.  Our first banner with Rhys focuses on the show’s lead character, Ragnar Lothbrook, and is based on his persona from the second season.  While Ragnar’s stoic look grabs your attention, it’s all the smaller details that pertain to Ragnar’s personality that tie the print together so well.  It’s this combination that has resulted in a beautiful piece of character art worthy of a king’s wall.

Rhys’ Ragnar banner, which measures 12”x36”, will go sale Wednesday, November 9th at 12pm EST via the FAMP Art website (www.FAMPArt.com).  Full details about the piece can be found below:

The Magnificent Seven by Chris Skinner – On Sale Info

The Magnificent Seven by Chris Skinner – On Sale Info

A favorite among westerns, John Sturges’ The Magnificent Seven is one of the few re-imagined films that has managed to stand the test of time.  With an ensemble cast featuring the likes of Steve McQueen, Yul Brynner, Charles Bronson, and James Coburn, it’s no wonder why the film holds a special place in the hearts of those who love the westerns of yesteryear.

To coincide with the recent release of Antoine Fuqua’s remake of the same name, we will be releasing a new, officially licensed, limited edition screen print for the 1960 classic, The Magnificent Seven, by the talented artist Chris Skinner.

Chris’ beautifully rendered poster is an eight color screen print that will be printed on Madero Beach Speckletone paper, giving the entire poster a true western vibe.  The poster is a landscape style print that focuses on the exciting climax of the film.  The combination of its painted look, blended typography, and dynamic action make it a truly excellent and unique movie poster for the film and a must-have for any fan of the genre.

As a bonus, we are releasing a limited edition character handbill of Steve McQueen’s Vin Tanner character from the film, which is officially licensed by the Steve McQueen Estate.   Steve McQueen was one of the real highlights of The Magnificent Seven and we thought a character handbill would be the perfect complement to the ensemble based poster.

Both the poster and handbill will go on sale Wednesday, October 5th at 12pm EST via the FAMP Art website (www.FAMPArt.com).  Full details about the poster and handbill, including the reveals, can be found below:

‘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.

‘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

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.

‘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.

FAMP_jc richard_snowpiercer pub_1200 RT

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.
