Art & Hue is pleased to present a new collection of graphic pop art inspired by images from the photographic archives of the cult 1960s British TV show.
Art & Hue had the pleasure of diving into StudioCanal’s extensive library of production and publicity photography at Pinewood Studios to create this group of exclusive pop art prints in homage to The Avengers, the tale of British spies, and talented amateurs, foiling the dastardly plots of diabolical masterminds.
An official collaboration with StudioCanal, the copyright-holders of The Avengers, has resulted in this new collection of pop art prints, in Art & Hue’s signature halftone style, which are available in a choice of 17 colours and three sizes (including Black & White which is new for Art & Hue but a must-have option for monochrome purists). Printed on 310gsm fine art archival matte paper, made from 100% cotton, the range uses pigment inks which last lifetimes.
2015 marks the 50 year anniversary of Emma Peel’s TV debut with John Steed.
Broadcast on ITV in the UK and ABC in the USA, the show defined the 1960s, running from 1961 to 1969, during which time The Avengers fought off Russian double-agents, dodgy politicians, and power-crazed businessmen across London – how times have changed!
The international success of the series lay in the marvellous chemistry between the two lead actors. Combining the unique talents of Patrick Macnee and Diana Rigg into one TV show created a global phenomenon which exported Swinging Sixties London as well as British humour & style across the world.
Innovative at the time and enthralling to this day, The Avengers have inspired this new exclusive collection of pop art by Art & Hue. Take a look at the art prints at http://artandhue.com/theavengers
