DZO and FAMP Art Teaming Up to Release ‘Dragon’, His First Release as Part of the FAMP Art Family

DZO and FAMP Art Teaming Up to Release ‘Dragon’, His First Release as Part of the FAMP Art Family

Hi All,

In our last blog post detailing the new FAMP Art strategy, we mentioned how we would be working regularly with a few specific artists, providing them a channel to release some awesome prints based on original ideas.  We also disclosed that we had a few cool series in the works that weren’t pop-culture related.  Well, now is the time where those two announcements officially collide.

We’d like to introduce you to an artist that we have been following since the early fall of 2014.  At the time he wasn’t ready to begin selling his art, but by the end of the year he decided to shift gears and 2015 saw his first limited edition releases.  Since then, people have started to notice more of his work and he has gained some notoriety for his incredible and mesmerizing art.  I’ve personally been buying his art and it is awe inspiring to see in person.  It’s the type of art you could spend hours staring at, wondering how in the hell he managed to draw the image with his hand.  So, without further ado, we’d like to introduce you all to DZO (aka DZO Olivier), the second artist to join the FAMP Art family.

DZO is a self-taught illustrator based in France that has a passion for, what I would like to call, elegant darkness.  His work is incredibly detailed, taking cues and inspiration from ancient styles which is then fueled by his passion for exploring philosophical ideas, the occult, religion and more.  His work with pencil and ink is nothing short of astounding and we couldn’t be more thrilled with the prospect of working with him.  Follow him on Facebook and definitely on Instagram to see all of his art, including some very cool work-in-progress shots for future releases.

DZO will periodically be releasing prints based on original ideas and licensed properties through the FAMP Art website, the first of which is titled “Dragon.”  This piece will not only kick start our relationship, but it’ll also kick start our first series of prints based on a theme that we’re very passionate about, mythology.  When we approached DZO about this series we had one subject in mind that we really wanted to see him tackle, dragons.  His response was simple: “I love those pets.” It was at that moment we knew we were going to get something special and, boy, did we.  Check out the full image below the post, which was exclusively revealed on Beautiful.Bizarre, and prepare for your jaw to hit the floor.  We’ll post detail shots closer to the release.

We will be releasing details about the release fairly soon but, for now, if you’re interested in being added to a DZO reserve list let us know.  We will be making a separate list for diehard collectors, giving them an opportunity to purchase certain versions of his art before it goes on sale to the masses.  If interested in being put on this list, please email info@fampart.com.

To keep up with all of our releases, be sure to follow FAMP Art on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and/or sign up for the newsletter by registering on our site.  We’ve got a lot more to come this year, so be sure to stay tuned for more awesome art.

Gabriel Picolo Joins FAMP Art’s Roster with a TROLLHUNTER Timed-Release

Gabriel Picolo Joins FAMP Art’s Roster with a TROLLHUNTER Timed-Release

Picolo-Trollhunter-web

We’re back!

At the end of 2014, we announced that we were going to be shifting gears which resulted in a quiet first quarter. We want to thank those that supported our Godmachine La Haine release since that’s been our only drop thus far.

We’ve been working diligently behind the scenes to bring you some sweet new art, both movie related and not, and think you’ll dig what we’re going to be releasing throughout the rest of the year.

One of our goals when we started the business was to help introduce amazing new artists to this scene and give them an opportunity to tackle a licensed property. Regardless if they’re popular or not, we wanted to help them find ways to reach a new audience, in addition to having a supportive outlet where they could sell their art, art based on both original ideas and some pop culture ones.

What does this all mean? It means that we will be representing a handful of very select artists, either very regularly or exclusively, to promote them as well as release and promote their art. Soon you’ll see two new sections on our website called Artists and The Gallery. The first will show a list of the artists that we will be working with regularly or that we’ll be exclusively representing. Artists will be added once we’ve introduced them via our newsletter, blog, etc. The Gallery section will be for other passion projects of ours that generally won’t be pop culture related. We have two major series in the works that we’re super excited about and news on each will be revealed in time.

Over the remainder of the year, we’ll be introducing three artists that will be joining our roster, but it’s about that time we introduced the first one: Ladies and gentlemen, we’d like to introduce you to Gabriel Picolo, FAMP Art’s first resident artist.

Gabriel is a young illustrator from Brazil who we came across last summer when he was working on an amazing 365 Days of Doodles project. When you see those doodles your jaw is going to drop the same way ours did (check out his Instagram). We knew right then and there that we had to find a way to work with him, so we gave him a test: We asked him to design a poster for André Øvredal’s Norwegian mockumentary, Trollhunter (aka Trolljegeren), because of his ability to create rich and fun visuals with creatures. He submitted an idea and we loved it. After a few weeks, he came back to us with the final product and it was a nifty, simple and elegant take on the film. This is the largest canvas he has worked on thus far and was his first real test using color. It’s also the first movie poster he’s ever made and will be the first piece of art that he sells as a limited edition print. We were going to wait until October to release the piece, but people from all over the world have been begging him to publicly sell his art and so we thought, why wait, let’s kick-off his collectible print debut with a licensed poster.

Here’s what Gabriel had to say about the project: “Working on the Trollhunter poster project was a unique experience for me. That’s because, until now, it was the first time I watched a movie thinking about the illustration I’d draw afterwards. It changes how you see the whole thing. As I watched the movie I was seeking for interesting visual features that could help me to create the poster. I would like to thank Alex and FAMP Art for inviting me to join this project!”

To commemorate his first screen print release and to welcome him into the FAMP Art family, we’ll be making his Trollhunter print available as a timed edition. The art is an 18”x24” screen print that will cost $39. It will go on sale Thursday, May 14th at 12pm EST and will end on May 24th at 6pm EST. The print ships WW. The art will take up to two months to ship as we can’t print until we have the final edition size confirmed. There is no limit on the amount of prints you can purchase within the sale period. We will refund you the difference in shipping should you order more than one print, but we only ship a maximum of three prints together.   All orders are final and cannot be cancelled.

Additionally, we will be releasing prints of Gabriel’s popular doodles throughout the year in addition to some other fun stuff, so if you want to know about Gabriel’s future releases be sure to sign-up for our newsletter on www.fampart.com or follow us on twitter, facebook or Instagram to keep up with the latest news.

Lastly, we’ll be attending Boston Comic Con this July. If you live in the Boston area, be sure to come give us a shout. We’ll announce booth info and releases at a later date.

That’s all the news for now. Stay tuned, we’ll be announcing a new artist and dropping an incredible piece related to one of the series we’re working on in June.

‘The Bicycle Thief’ Prints by Xul1349 Announcement and On Sale Info

‘The Bicycle Thief’ Prints by Xul1349 Announcement and On Sale Info

Hi Everyone,

Today’s an exciting day.  Why? Because today /Film unveiled our November prints and they are a head-turner.  If you like art house films, classy things, or really damn good art then our latest print for The Bicycle Thief (aka Bicycle Thieves aka Ladri di Biciclette)  was made for you.  To celebrate the film’s 65th anniversary we teamed up with artist Xul1349 and Corinth Films to bring this film to life.  We couldn’t be more excited about this print and hope you all dig it as much as we do.

Here’s the important info: The prints measures 24″x18″ and they’ll have some metallic ink on it.  The regular version will have a run of 80 and cost $40; the variant will have a run of 45 and cost $55.  The prints will go on sale via the FAMP Art website on Monday November 24th between 1 and 2pm EST. Most importantly, and unfortunately, WE CAN ONLY SHIP THESE PRINTS TO THE US AND CANADA.

Check out the prints below along with the full press release that was sent out to announce the set.

Films from the past always shape those in the future, especially if they can still resonate with people over half a century later.  It is for this reason why we at FAMP Art aim to preserve and spread the word about classic films from yesteryear, whether they’re in English or not.

For our third print release, and to help celebrate the 65th anniversary of the film’s debut, FAMP Art has teamed up with Corinth Films to release a set of prints for the 1949 Italian classic Ladri di biciclette, or, more commonly known as The Bicycle Thief (Bicycle Thieves).

In film circles, The Bicycle Thief is hailed as one of the best foreign language films ever made and ranks as one of the top films of all-time.  It’s “Certified Fresh” on Rotten Tomatoes at 98%, sits in the top 100 of IMDB’s Top 250, and can be found on countless other best foreign film lists.  It’s a film-lover’s film and we feel it is time that it made its debut in our crazy little collectible world.

To introduce Vittorio De Sica’s Italian masterpiece to the screen printing community, FAMP Art sought out help from Xul1349, a Romania-based artist with heavy gothic influences, to tackle the challenge of bringing this Academy Award winning foreign language film to life.  To say he accomplished that goal is an understatement as Xul1349 managed to perfectly capture the look and feel of the film while also hinting at the drama to come in the story (as exemplified by the difference between the regular version and the variant).

There will be two versions of the print available, both of which measure 24”x18” and include metallic ink on the bicycle and the film title.  The regular version will have a limited run of 80 and cost $40; the variant will be more limited with a run of 45 and cost $55.  The prints will go on sale via the FAMP Art website on Monday November 24th between 1 and 2pm EST.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Due to license restrictions we can only ship this print to the US and Canada.

TROLLHUNTER on Sale now, Variant Close-up Shots, and Shipping Answers to International FAQs

TROLLHUNTER on Sale now, Variant Close-up Shots, and Shipping Answers to International FAQs

Hi All,

In case you didn’t know, our Trollhunter prints went on sale today in the shop and we’re excited to finally let this one out into the public.

Firstly, we’d like to thank all of those who helped get the word out on these prints like Blurppy, Magnet Releasing, the EB crew and our twitter/Facebook followers.  Secondly, we’ll start shipping these out either Saturday or first thing next week so that those who ordered can receive it by the that Friday or early the following week depending on how speedy USPS feels like being.

Secondly, we’ve had a few questions regarding international shipping prices. Right now we are shipping everything via USPS priority international.  It’s a bit more expensive but it’s faster, includes tracking and, more importantly, insures the product that you paid for.  We obviously try our best to make these prints as affordable as possible and hate it ourselves when the shipping is way too expensive…and then there is customs.  We’ll be exploring, and likely implementing, a second option for our international buyers that allows you to select first class shipping.  It should help save about $15-25 depending on where you live, so stay tuned for that.

Thirdly, today we received an email from the director of Trollhuner, André Øvredal, and we got his stamp of approval.  He loved the prints and we thought it’d be fun if you all knew that it has his support.

Lastly, for those of you that bought a variant print, below is a tease of what’s coming your way.  They look amazing and we think you’ll really love them even more when you see them in person.

We’re glad to say that our dreams of seeing a Trollhunter print have been answered but there’s still so much more to come from us.  Thanks again for your support and be sure to let us know how we’re doing, what you want to see from us, or drop us a line showing off your framed up FAMP Art print(s).

TROLLLLLLL! Get Your Gear Ready, ‘Trollhunter’ Will Be on the Move Next Week

It feels like it’s been forever since we first dropped our City of God prints about a month ago to help officially launch the business, but since that release we’ve been eagerly awaiting to show you all our next set of prints and provide you with details on when you can buy it.

Yesterday, Blurppy.com officially unveiled our first print set for André Øvredal’s awesome Norwegian flick Trollhunter (aka Trolljegeren) by artist Chris Weston. If you haven’t seen this movie then I suggest finding a way watch it. It’s a highly creative and fun flick about a group of students who investigate mysterious bear killings in Norway only to discover that the man who is hunting these bears is actually hunting trolls.

Trollhunter was one of my top 10 favorite films of 2011 and is a movie that has rarely disappointed anyone that I’ve ever recommended it to. It’s for these reasons why we felt it absolutely deserved a screen printed makeover and was thrilled when Chris Weston said yes to the project.

We will be releasing two prints for the film, both of which measure 24”x36”, and they will be made available through the FAMP Art website on October 21st at a random time between 3pm and 8pm EST. The regular (English) version will have a run of 145 prints and will cost $45, the variant (Norwegian) version will have a run of 70 prints and will cost $60. There will be a limit of one per person per household.

If you know anyone that loves this movie be sure to tell them about this print, we’re confident they’ll love it.

Check out the art below and be sure to follow us in some way shape or form to find out exactly when the prints go on sale.

FAMP Art is Alive! ‘City of God’ by Dan Norris to be the Company’s Debut Print

Yesterday was a great day for FAMP Art as Germaine over at Slashfilm.com unveiled our first prints and introduced our company to the world.  I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t both extremely excited and nervous at the same time and so I’d like to thank Germaine and everyone else that has followed us via various social media platforms and have shared the print around the net, it’s been so cool to see it spread.  Personally this has been a long journey but I’m super proud and am very happy with the way things are shaping up.  Our first set of prints for City of God by UK artist Dan Norris came out better than I could have ever expected and, to top it all off, the director of the film Fernando Meirelles loves the set and wants the pair to hang up.  We hope you guys love it as much as we do.

You can check out the pieces below along with some more information on the release.  Be sure to check back here in a week or two for some close-up shots of the prints, which we have in-hand, as well as for info on how we plan to separate ourselves from the pack and shake things up in this glorious little industry.

Below is the full press release for the launch and first print drop.

Based in New York, FAMP Art is a company that specializes in creating officially licensed, limited edition screen printed posters of foreign films, pre-1980s classics and a few random goodies here and there of things we simply love.

A business years in the making, FAMP Art was founded to bridge the gap between pop culture art and art-house cinema, focusing on films that don’t get much love in the art world but are praised in the world of cinema (and that we ourselves are passionate about). Our goal is to fuse two different worlds through the glory of awesome and beautiful art prints.

To celebrate the launch of the business and the completion of the world cup in Brazil earlier this summer, FAMP Art will be releasing its debut prints for one of the finest foreign films ever made, the Oscar© nominated City of God. The art was designed by Dan Norris, a UK-based artist known for his gritty and minimalist takes on popular films, a perfect candidate to tackle Fernando Meirelles’ striking piece of cinema.

Two prints of the film, both of which measure 18”x24” and were printed by Seizure Palace, will be made available through the FAMP Art website on September 3rd at a random time. The regular version (Yellow) will have a run 177 and will cost $40. The Brazilian color variant (green) will have a run of 77 and cost $50. There will be a limit of one per person per household. Be sure to follow FAMP Art on Twitter, Facebook or sign up for the newsletter by registering on our site to find out exactly when the prints go on sale.
