Pink Floyd- a band renowned for their stunning visuals both on stage and on album covers, this was a purposeful decision by the band as they were relatively static on stage and not the most eccentric rock’n roll characters to say the least! To the left is the latest poster being used to advertise the up and coming ‘The Wall LIve’ tour from Roger Waters (Floyd song writer/ bass player/ singer) I love the way it’s a very modern spin on the instantly recognizable 30 year old original artwork.
I always felt Pink Floyd’s artwork was in a world of it’s own, very ahead of it’s time. As a result of this it never seems to age or look out of context. The Wall art work was created by Gerald Scarfe who among other things is known for developing all the characters for Disney’s Hercules in 1997.
This whole project has a very distinct style that screams anarchy and resistance, I love the marching hammers and particularly the famous picture of the school teacher putting students into a mincer disguised as a school building- sums up how people felt about education in certain parts of this country.
