1982 print by James Brown

1982 James Brown

We've featured plenty of designs by James Brown in the past but this 1982 print is a striking change of style. 

While his usual designs celebrate such British institutions as the Shipping Forecast or our obsession with the weather, this print celebrates some classic British rock. 

It remembers the Hackney rock concert, featuring the likes of Motorhead and Saxon. The concert took place 30 years ago in what was Hackney Stadium, before that area of London was given over to all things Olympic.To celebrate something of the might of the occasion, this print uses black glitter against a bright pink background: a slightly more extrovert colour scheme than in Brown's usual designs.

The prints are limited to 30 and cost £95 each.
