If you’re quick, you’ve still got time to take in the Central Station Retrospective, which takes place at Manchester’s Richard Goodall Gallery throughout the month of May.
And even if you haven’t got time for a trip to Manchester, you can still buy the artwork online. If you haven’t realised already, Central Station was responsible for some of the most distinctive ‘Madchester’ artwork of the late 80s and early 90s, including James’ Sit Down sleeve, most of the Happy Mondays’ output and the Madchester logo itself – although the exhibition goes beyond that, covering the design team’s output over 25 years.
Prices for the artwork vary from £50 (for a rather cool set of ‘Fac Off’ mini prints) to £750 for the larger pieces. The James sleeve pictured here is a pigment print on 100% cotton rag hahnemuhle paper, sized at 70 x 100cm and signed and numbered in an edition of 100 by all 3 Central Station artists (Karen, Pat & Matt). That sells for £500.
