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 The Stone Roses’ song ‘Bye Bye Badman’, ‘Paris 68’ depicts a bright yellow lemon, poised against a flat grey background, as tiny, grenade-shaped pips explode into the tricolore colours of the French flag. The famous song documents the 1968 Paris riots, in which peaceful student protestors used lemons in teargas attacks. Simultaneously capturing two moments in history, ‘Paris 68’ is a paragon of contemporary Pop Art.
