In honour of John Lennon’s 75th birthday,  artist and master of screen-printing, Russell Marshall produced a limited edition screen print endorsed by Yoko Ono Lennon and photographer, Bob Gruen. The print was released on what would have been Lennon’s 75th birthday on 9th October, and is available to buy at Turner | Barnes | Gallery. Beatle fans and Lennon lovers alike will love this piece of art to celebrate the life of the iconic musician.

Through his art, Russell Marshall celebrates one of music and culture’s most highly regarded icons.  Via the delicate art of Silkscreen printing, particularly at such a large size, Marshall brings the famous image of Lennon to the art world, in a fantastic colourway of blue on pearl. As much a research process as it is an artistic printing process, Russell Marshall sought and agreed permission to use the image from both the legendary photographer who took the image in 1969, Bob Gruen and Yoko Ono Lennon via the John Lennon Foundation.

To accompany the Lennon print, titled ‘Lennon 1974’, and explain its history, a short film has also been made: https://vimeo.com/140438538
