Habitat’s Polish Blow-Up canvas

Blowup_polish
A short while back, we featured Habitat’s League of Gentlemen canvas, part of a new range of canvas art available instore and online. But dig deeper and you’ll find a rare gem for the sale – the Polish Blow-Up film canvas.

So why is this so special? Well, the film poster for Blow-Up is one of the most famous in the world. Except possibly in Poland, where a new image for the film was created by artist Waldemar Swierzy. And in my view, it’s every bit as appealing as the more widely-known Hemmings and model image and indeed more true to the film title – this is a "blow-up" of a photograph.

Swierzy’s original poster does command a hefty price tag these days. The Habitat canvas, sized at 70cm x 100cm and ready to hang sells at £95.
