‘Lennon 1974’ is a stunning 2 colour Limited Edition Screen Print, from urban artist Russell Marshall.
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
