Newcastle upon Tyne has forged a galactic reputation in the arts for countless creative reasons, and an indispensable part of its history is local lad graphic artist and video director Jimmy Turrell. Alongside hosting his refined exhibitions and shows, he is known and deeply admired around the globe, with his clientele including Beck, Hugo Boss and The New York Times. Now it is our turn to adorn our walls with his characterful, modern collage creations of layers of colour, detail and texture.
Turrell invented the artwork for goddess Aretha Franklin's final album A Brand New Me and in honour of this has released a new limited edition run in a fresh green design, which was one of the initial ideas he considered for the LP cover. As lockdown strikes again, art is one of the ways that we can brighten our day and, of course, our daily view; you can now purchase this print down at Jim's online shop, where you will also find his exclusive 'Why Aye Man' piece that has never been on sale before.
But that's not it, whey no, a brand new set of four prints featuring the valued artist's heroes, who we sadly lost last year - Bill Withers, Andrew Weatherall, Tony Allen and Kraftwerk's Florian Schneider - are available to purchase, with 50% of all proceeds kindly going to Cancer Research UK.
Visit right now to witness the likes of The Beatles, Grace Jones, Get Carter, and oodles more to chronicle your slice of modern, graphic imagery at its absolute best.
