It isn’t an official piece of art, but I really do love this Belle and Sebastian The State I Am In pop art print by Indieprints.
Of course, it helps if you, like me, love the band. If you do, you will recognise the words from the opening track of the band’s debut album Tigermilk from back in the mid-1990s.
But this isn’t just about the band and the song (although that’s a good part of it). This is also about the artwork itself, which is rather eye-catching.
This is vintage-style pop art. Almost comic book in fact, with a Lichtenstein-like ’think’ bubble containing those all-important lyrics. Even if you didn’t have an affinity with the band you might well appreciate this visually.
Each print is individually printed to order on 200 gsm fine art paper, with a white border to allow easy framing. It is sized at 291 x 414mm. Price? Just £10, which sounds like good value to us.
If you want to see more in a similar style, the maker has other bands and other related lyrics also available as artwork, so do check out the full range if you have a few minutes.
