I think that truly great artists will always live on through their work, so upon hearing this sad news it is with the greatest respect that I write this post in hope that I just may introduce somebody out there who hasn’t already seen or heard of these two great creative minds.

Description: Hand pulled Screen Print which comes from series of work which can be displayed together as a set or individually.
This print is part of a series of work featuring influential artists, musicians and creative people, which looks at how the analogue and digital are now so heavily entwined. The idea for the ‘half man, half robot’ composition of the piece originates after I spent so much time working on a computer creating work that eventually my work only ever existed in digital form.
The series consists of two musicians and two artists, who are all a source of lasting inspiration and have all had a huge influence on my work.
The titles “John Lennon – Power To The People” and “Bob Marley – Get Up Stand Up” were used as I see them both as very empowering musicians who strived for something more than just fame and money, instead used there creativity to promote peace and raise awareness. Both Jean-Michel Basquiat AKA Samo and Barry Mcgee AKA Twist are artist’s who were and are heavily influenced by the original street graffiti movement of seventies New York and represent how the graffiti movement can be interpretated to form new and exciting platforms for art, bringing the streets inside and putting the galleries outside.
The 3D or linear element of the piece is a line drawing I did in the mid 90’s after trips to Munich in ’94 and Amsterdam in ’95, were I saw graffiti styles which took the impossibilities of M.C Escher’s drawings, the 3D techniques of Cubism, but most of all Russian art movements such as Futurism and adapted them to form letter styles which looked like solid, intertwined, impossible objects.
This 3D element was then over laid and blended with my images to show how these creative people now live on through technology and how they now traverse the analogue to digital world.
