Before leaving for the Balcan tour with our band, we worked on another project with our friends at Dark City Gallery in UK.
We printed a very limited edition poster celebrating one of the most known movies of Michelangelo Antonioni: Blow Up.
The process for realizing this print started a few months ago and it’s been a very difficult challenge.
The most famous and iconic image related to this movie is the one seeing David Hemmings taking photos of the model Veruschka von Lehndorff.
After a long brainstorming we decided it could have been interesting to work on a vision of what the photographer was seeing in that scene.
So we started in designing Veruschka on a carpet of photos (and there’s also the one with the gun to recall the main plot of the movie), giving a touch of sixties in the inscription of the movie title, drowned into the long hair of the model.
There is a regular and a variant version of this six color handmade printed silkscreen poster.
The regular one, in which Veruschka has gold hairs, is limited to 100 pieces.
The variant, with a red haired model, is only 35 pieces.
Here’s the printing process.
We used a lot of metallic colors.
Also, a glowing red for the variant.
And the final result is here below:

It’s very difficult to give an exact idea of how the prints look like.
Pics don’t give justice to the posters in person and I must say it’s a pity.
Anyway, hope You’ll like it and if You’re interested, just go HERE for buying.
