‘Special: Thatcher’s Afterbirth’ is a screen print by artist and musician Billy Childish. From a limited edition of 113, the print is stamped and numbered by the artist.
Creative polymath and political provocateur, Billy Childish has produced a range of limited edition prints in response to the current, chaotic global climate. Childish’s observational posters draw on aesthetics of revolutionary Soviet campaigns (a timely reference, in the Russian Revolution’s centenary year) using constructivist compositions, with bold type and flat, saturated colouration.
‘Special: Thatcher’s Afterbirth’ depicts the grimacing face of Iron Lady Number 2, collaged against a sage-green background and surrounded by the words ‘Thatcher’s Weak Unstable Afterbirth!’ A strong and stable society? Or a Tory Third Reich, as Childish aptly quips?
Please note: prints come in folded and distressed condition. Orders will be dispatched estimated 15th June.
