Limited edition, signed art prints from Emmy winner Antony Buonomo
Huge, colourful prints celebrating the unique beauty of film and actors.
Perfect gift for movie lovers.
“One of the unique beauties of film is a huge pair of eyes pouring their emotion onto the audience.” – Antony Buonomo
This series of prints was inspired by a comment from Arthur Miller, the playwright – he was watching filming of The Misfits. The male star of the film was Clark Gable and Miller was watching the filming of a close-up on Gable’s face. After a couple of takes the director wrapped the scene and they moved on. Miller was confused, it seemed to him that Gable hadn’t expressed anything, from a few feet away he hadn’t seen any emotion at all on Gable’s face. However, the next morning, watching the rushes, Miller was astounded at what the camera had caught, but that he had missed. Gable had let his eyes say everything that needed to be said.
These prints distil the essence of the characters and of the performers using only their eyes. From the crinkly mischief of comic actor Sid James to the deathly stare of Al Pacino as Michael Corleone, the eyes tell the story in these huge (130cm x 65cm – 51” x 26“) colourful prints. Printed on a variety of very heavy rag or cotton mix paper using the highest quality giclée pigmented inks, these images are stunning from a distance and reveal even more in close-up.
Printed individually and on demand, each one personally inspected before dispatch, the prints range from £125 for the smaller size, to £385 for the full-size, signed limited edition versions.
There is also a range of ceramics and T-shirts, starting from £30.
