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!

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.
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.

Verity and I spent a long 2 days in Paris at the end of last week and visited the Néon. Who’s afraid of red, yellow and blue? exhibition at La Maison Rouge.
I really wasn’t prepared for just how much beautiful neon would be on show and how all-encompassing the exhibition was. Verity took lots of photos [some of which are in the slideshow below], and I wandered around gasping in awe at all the bright, flickering neon. And then went back round again to re-look at my favourite pieces
I left with neon lights flashing before my eyes and a head full of ideas and reference material for new neon paintings. What a treat.
I’m very excited as I am taking a trip to Paris this week to see an exhibition of Neon Art from the 1940s to the present – Néon. Who’s afraid of red, yellow and blue? at La Maison Rouge.
Here is an article about the exhibition: Seeing Neon, in All Its Brilliance, in Paris Exhibition – NYTimes.com.
Hopefully I will also have a few opportunities to distribute some Calling Cards around Paris too!
