‘A Clockwork Bowie - Regular Edition’ is a Silkscreen print by photographer and graphic artist Carl Glover. From a limited edition of 80, the print is signed and numbered by the artist.
Photographer and graphic artist Carl Glover is one of the leading figures in music industry artwork: with over 25 years experience, Glover has been behind album covers for the greats, from Led Zeppelin to The Rolling Stones - in other words, music prints don’t get better than this. His poster work for Classic Album Sundays has been released in a series of limited edition screen prints that promise to be cult classics in the making. ‘A Clockwork Bowie - Regular Edition’ merges David Bowie with the artwork for Kubrick’s ‘A Clockwork Orange’: an exquisite meeting of two, twentieth century icons. Using a palette of bright burnt-orange and electric blue, Glover has created a striking composition of divergent colour blocks over images of Bowie’s face. The text for the poster uses the familiar typography from Kubrick’s film cover, for a bold, brash and inescapably cool aesthetic. It’s a must have for the Bowie fan, the retro music collector, and anyone with a keen eye for the iconic.
