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.

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.

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.

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

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.
