Art & Hue presents Billy Liar stylish pop art prints

Considered one of the most significant and revolutionary films in British cinema, subverting the social realist and kitchen sink genres with its use of fantasy sequences and documentary-style location shooting, “Billy Liar” reflected the changing cultural and social landscape of Britain in the early 1960s and its influence can still be seen in contemporary cinema and television today.

Exclusively by Art & Hue, the “Billy Liar” collection is available in three sizes & many colours, printed on museum-quality archival card of 310gsm, made from 100% ethically-sourced cotton, with fine-art pigment inks for longevity.

Bring a touch of retro milk-bar chic to your home with these stylish and fun prints, perfect for any fan of pop culture or vintage cinema.

An official collaboration with Studiocanal to mark 60 years of the film’s innovative storytelling and groundbreaking portrayal of Northern working class characters in 1960s Britain, Art & Hue has delved into the archives to uncover images from the iconic film “Billy Liar” which have been transformed into stylish pop art prints, featuring Art & Hue’s signature halftone style (halftone is an age-old technique that uses dots to make up the printed image, similar to newspapers or comic books).

Available in A4, A3, and A2 sizes to fit standard-size picture frames. Please note that black frame is not included – for a guide on choosing a frame size take a look here.
