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

Pssst! Fancy getting your hands on one of my glowing neon art prints for less than half-price? You’re in luck, I’ve extended my promo offer on this stunning new edition until the end of June.

I released this limited edition (50) art print at the beginning of May to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the student and worker uprising in Paris in May 1968. Ne Travaillez Jamais (trans: ‘Never Work’) was an infamous slogan inscribed on a Left Bank wall by Guy Debord, The slogan was one of many reproduced on posters and banners by the underground press at the Sorbonne during that spring 50 years ago.

You can buy my Neon Graffiti (for Guy Debord and The Situationist International) giclee print direct from me at the ’68 friendly price of £68.00 + postage.

Each print is signed and numbered on A2 size, archival quality cotton-rag paper with hand-torn deckle edges, and it really does seem to glow!

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.

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.
