Xul1349 - Bicycle Thief header

In the limited edition poster game, you pretty much know the drill. You’re going to get really nice art for the same few dozen movies. It just so happens that movies like Back to the Future, Ghostbusters, Star Wars, Jaws, etc. are the ones that most influenced the current crop of professional artists. In fact, it’s pretty rare that you get a piece of art for a movie that was made before 1975, let alone something foreign.

Enter FAMP Art, a new limited edition art company who is hoping to create works not from the regular hit films. They’re focusing only on the best in independent and foreign cinema. They checked both boxes with their first poster for City of God and next week, they’ll release a regular and variant for Vittorio De Sica‘s 1948 masterpiece, The Bicycle Thief. Below, we exclusively reveal both Bicycle Thief posters and tell you how you can get one. Read More »

Dan Norris City of God poster

Fernando Meirelles‘ City of God is one of those movies you can constantly turn people onto. When it was released in 2002, it opened to incredible acclaim but many people missed it simply because it’s a foreign language film. Now, if ever asked for a movie recommendation, City of God is at the top of the list.

That interesting cultural niche between critical acclaim, mainstream success and cult classic is why the brand new company, FAMP Art, chose the film to kick off its new endeavor. They’re a New York based screen print company who plan to specialize in smaller films that rarely get attention, both from the mainstream and in the art world. Their first print is by UK artist Dan Norris, who took the visceral visuals of City of God and condensed them down into a single, striking image. Below, check out our exclusive debut of the first FAMP Art City of God poster. Read More »
