Gustav Klimt was born July 14th 1862 in Baumgarten, near Vienna in Austria-Hungary, the second of seven children - three boys and four girls. All three sons displayed artistic talent early on. In 1876, Klimt was awarded a scholarship to the Vienna School of Arts and Crafts (Kunstgewerbeschule), where he studied until 1883, and received training as an architectural painter. In 1888, Klimt received the Golden order of Merit from Emperor Franz Josef I of Austria for his contributions to murals painted in the Burgtheater in Vienna.

Back in 1971 Bruce Lee had an idea to do a TV show about a martial arts expert in the wild west. At the time studios like Warner Brothers and Paramount turned it down. WBros did do a TV show called Kung Fu starring a different actor after Bruce approached them, seemingly they stole his idea and cast a different actor in the lead part.

Luckily Bruce's notes have been found and 48 years later we have Warrior on Netflix. Justin Lin (director/producer), knowing the myth around The Warrior contacted Bruce's daughter Shannon and the show was finally made.  

Although we haven't Warrior posters we do have Bruce Lee.

We're lucky enough to live near Newcastle, NSW and our coastline is great for spotting whales. Between May and November whales can be spotted from multiple spots on the coasts. In SA and VIC it seems to be the Southern Right Whale whilst the Humpbacks head north to mate in the Great Barrier Reef and Kimberley.

Check out this webpage for some of the best viewing spots: https://www.australia.com/en/things-to-do/nature-and-wildlife/whale-watching-in-australia.html

Okay, we know that the fact that they're called 'stash' tins and the fact that many of the images on the tins are of marijuana leaves and mushrooms imply that storing naughty stuff is the only thing these are for. But of course a small tin can be used for anything.

Aside from the cannabis related ones there's plenty of really cool images for music lovers including Iggy Popp, Blondie, AC/DC, Dead Kennedys and Bob Marley, plus some more generic ones like peace signs.

I myself keep butterfly clips in my Bowie, a certain 2kcal mint in my Ankh and coffee money in Marilyn.

And guess what! They make that really satisfying 'pop/snap'...

Hundreds of uploads and amendments 

Here at Poster Plus we have been working very hard over the last couple of months to upload hundreds of images for you to buy in the EGIM Fine Art Print range. We always had a few on our site but the images were grainy and some of thie size information was wrong. Well now our in-house photographer is taking photos of each and every one so that the picture you see on our site is as close to the actual colour of the print as possible and the details are correct so as to help you make an informed choice when selecting.

EGIM Fine Art Prints are an exclusive collection of fine art reproductions...

New Blacklight Posters add depth to the range.

We have been singing the praises of blacklight posters for some time and with the addtion of some amazing new images we can also take this product way beyond the cannabis culture they have long been associated with.  

Images of dragons, fairies, flamingoes, dreamy landscapes, tropical fish, surfers, peace signs and aliens are now widening the appeal.

A blacklight poster is printed with inks which flouresce under a blacklight. The inks contain phosphors which cause them to glow when exposed to the ultraviolet light emitted from black light bulbs. Originating from the...
