The graphic pop art specialist, Art & Hue has joined forces with the UK’s cherished animation studio, Aardman to launch a new collection of stylish pop art prints featuring Wallace, Gromit, Shaun the Sheep, and Morph.
“Art & Hue have a unique art style which is fresh and contemporary. I love their use of colour and the crispness of the imagery,” said Ian Downes, owner of Start Licensing, the UK licensing agency for Aardman’s Wallace & Gromit.
“They have chosen some fantastic images of these charming characters. We think it will be a popular collection with Aardman fans. Aardman and art go together very well and it is lovely to see developments like this come to fruition.”
The award-winning Aardman studio has enthralled and charmed multi-generational audiences all around the world with its stop-motion animations, including Wallace & Gromit, Shaun the Sheep, and Morph who first appeared on TV in 1977.
Morph originally caused mischief during Tony Hart’s art show “Take Hart”, an inspirational show for a whole generation of viewers, and continues to star in his own shows with his cream-coloured pal Chas.
The inventive Wallace & Gromit also feature along with Shaun the Sheep, who first appeared in the Academy Award-winning Wallace & Gromit film “A Close Shave”. Shaun now stars in his own series and has two feature films under his belt. The world’s most famous sheep appears in four prints along with other members of the Flock, the Farmer, and Bitzer.
Morph, Shaun the Sheep, and Wallace & Gromit all get the pop art treatment, printed on museum-quality archival card of 310gsm, made from 100 per cent cotton, using fine-art pigment inks for longevity.
