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.

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.
