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.

Following my recent participation in a group show at 45 Park Lane, London, I’m pleased to have sold my painting Neon Graffiti (For Guy Debord & The Situationist International) to a collector in Monaco.

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

The painting was based on an original piece of graffiti (trans: “Never Work”), scrawled across a wall in the Rue de Seine, Saint-Germain-des-Prés, Paris by Guy Debord, sometime in 1953. The slogan was later taken up by the student/worker movement in the May 1968 uprising. The original piece of graffiti apparently still survives in what is now a prime real estate location amongst the high-end galleries and antique dealers, and in close proximity to the Louvre, as well as the legendary Les Deux Magots and Café des Flores.

 

The original painting had a huge amount of interest both before and during the show, so now that the original has sold, I will put some serious thought to releasing a giclée print edition at some time in the future.
