This contemporary art print is a direct, high-resolution giclée reproduction of my  painting ‘Neon Graffiti (for Guy Debord and The Situationist International)’. In this piece I appropriated a slogan “Ne Travaillez Jamais” painted by Guy Debord across a wall on the Rue De Seine, Paris (circa 1953). It translates literally as “Never Work” and was still legible in ’68 when it was co-opted (along with many other ideas of the Situationists) and became one of many slogans mass-printed and distributed on posters, leaflets and placards in the student revolt of May that year.

This brand new limited edition print is released in a signed and numbered edition of 50 on A2 350gsm archival quality Somerset Velvet cotton rag paper, with hand-torn deckle edges. It is available at a very special introductory price of £68.00** until midnight on 31 May 2018.
(**after this date the price will revert to the gallery price of £150).

More about the print:

The print is a direct, high-resolution giclée reproduction of my painting Neon Graffiti (for Guy Debord and The Situationist International). The text is based on a slogan painted by Guy Debord across a wall on the Rue De Seine, Paris (circa 1953). It translates literally as Never Work and was apparently still legible in ’68 when it was co-opted (along with other ideas of the Situationists) and became one of many slogans mass-printed and distributed on posters, leaflets and placards in the student revolt.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I’ve been hunkered down finishing new paintings for a group show at 45 Park Lane next month. All very last minute, as I was only approached to take part 3 weeks ago. Hence the lack of posts/updates recently.

10 Nov 15 – 07 Jan 16 / Group Exhibition
WAC winners Dominic Bradnum & Kirsten Baskett with 45 Park Lane Artists Group
45 Park Lane, Mayfair, London, W1K 1PN

I will be showing 4 new works, including this one:

Neon Graffiti (For Guy Debord & The Situationist International), 2015, oil and mixed media on canvas, 75cm x 100cm

Later in the month, I have been coaxed out of DJ semi-retirement to play some French records at the inaugural Hastings Mon Amour night. Top billing will be a screening of Truffaut’s sublime ménage à trois Jules et Jim, with my questionable DJ skills before and after.
