The distinctive form of the Anglepoise lamp gets a surreal makeover in this collection of Anglepoise prints by Roo Abrook.
This collection is taken from the newly launched Anglepoise site, featuring art and novelties as well as versions of the classic piece of lighting design. Roo Abrook's collection puts the Anglepoise in some surreal situations – shining out of the roof of a black cab, for example, or a stag's head, or a dinner jacket.
British artist Abrook is known for creating new work from overprinting old books and papers, and for this collection, the background to the prints are pages from literary and mathematical works, apparently selected for their relevance to their subject. The resulting prints look great individually, but would look fantastic displayed as a group.
At £30 each, these are a great way to get original art on your walls.
