Colour is Sound are a Brighton-based art collective, crafting ‘Pop art for the 21st Century inspired by seminal music that changed the culture forever.’ Their limited edition prints feature bold, graphic compositions, using brightly coloured imagery to symbolise the masters of the music industry.
Inspired by Funkadelic, ’Groove Galactica’ mines 1970s imagery to capture the culture from which the pioneering band was born. A perfectly symmetrical image, replete with overtones of sci-fi futurism, the seemingly abstract shapes reveal themselves to be a constellation of Funkadelic iconography: Gibson guitars create a set of space-age antennas, while George Clinton’s iconic glasses enclose the image, creating a sense of sonic harmony. Merging fluidity with geometry, retro colour with high-impact composition, ‘Groove Galactica’ is a paragon of contemporary Pop Art.
