Green & purple are rarely seen together (not since the days of 80s footballer’s shell suits) but there’s one arena where the colours work: tennis.
Exclusively by Art & Hue, all pop art is printed on museum-quality archival card of 310gsm, made from 100% cotton, with fine-art pigment inks for longevity. 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) along with graphic blocks of colour.
2022 marks 145 years since the first ever championships took place in Wimbledon, London, and 100 years since the tennis club’s current location in SW19.
As well as these four new prints, discover the tennis-related prints below from the “School for Scoundrels” collection – hard cheese!

Whilst we're on the subject of tennis, some of the most memorable scenes of tennis in film have to be the bouts between Terry-Thomas and Ian Carmichael in the British comedy “School for Scoundrels”.
With classic scenes of oneupmanship or, as the film's tagline says, “how to win without actually cheating”, the calls of “hard cheese” are part of cinematic and tennis history.
Taking place at the fictional Chippentonian club (the real-world location is The Edgwarebury Hotel which Art & Hue had the pleasure to visit for a special event with the film's leading lady Janette Scott), discover the pair of tennis-related prints from the collection below.
