Here is a new version of John Lennon, part of the new products avaialble this year : the 30 x 30cm prints easy to frame.
The size is bigger than the usual pictures and it allow me to expand some portraits and built in great stories. For this portrait, i’ve been using the movie “imagine”, biopic of john lennon wich include large amount of anecdotes and stories i could put in the portrait.
I’ve pick up few elements of the portrait and i’ll explain it to you :
After being introduced to “the millionaire Beatle,” the woman handed him a little card that said simply, “Breathe.” John, although puzzled, responded politely with a quick pant. Next, his eyes settled on a ladder leading up to a canvas suspended from the ceiling, with a spyglass hanging from it on the end of a chain. Climbing to the top of the ladder, he looked through the spyglass to read a word printed in tiny letters.
“You’re on this ladder — you feel like a fool, you could fall any minute — and you look through it and it just says ‘YES,’ ” he told David Sheff in 1980. “Well, all the so-called avant-garde art at the time, and everything that was supposedly interesting, was all negative; this smash-the-piano-with-a-hammer, break-the-sculpture, boring, negative crap. It was all anti-, anti-, anti-. Anti-art, anti-establishment. And just that ‘YES’ made me stay in a gallery full of apples and nails, instead of just walking out saying, ‘I’m not gonna buy any of this crap.’”
Many others elements :
I’ve sum up the other elements with locating it directly on the picture, so for the fan, enjoy !!
