There’s not many contemporary artists practising today who’d have the courage of their creative convictions (and vision for that matter) to fuse together the visual works of two of the art world’s biggest names and draws. And what’s more, two from not only polar oppositional illustrative backgrounds but generations as well. But the acclaimed contemporary abstract artist who’s made just that graphically possible in his brand new Autumn 2014 release is the exciting talent belonging to John Wilson.
‘Lowry meets Banksy’ is what the title implies. The meeting of two of the most eclectic of creative minds, found at very different ends of the artistic divide. But believe us when we say this limited edition framed wall sculpture (as the genre is referred to) actually works. And works with compelling distinction as we look out upon Wilson’s abstract offering of Lowry’s distinctive world in the background viewed through Banksy’s graphically-enlivened brick railway arches in the foreground. Signed and framed, this unique study is limited to just 150 editions on its release and is predicted to meet with insatiable demand.
