LEVELLERS PRINT BY THE POSTMAN ART COLLECTIVE
This iconic photo, taken by Martyn Goodacre when the Levellers were back from the Zeitgeist tour in 1995/96 has been reimagined by 'The Postman', an art collective based in Brighton. You can get it in our shop here
A few words from The Postman
In 1995, one of us at The Postman went to see the Levellers' Home Coming Gig at the Brighton Centre. It was his first proper gig ever and his world was rocked. He felt inspired to become a musician himself and an artist.
25+ years on from that, we are now friends with 'The Levs' and everything has gone 'full circle'. We were very honoured to be given the opportunity to make an artwork of this iconic band with the use of a brilliant image by legendary photographer Martyn Goodacre.
Meanwhile, Jeremy says...
I was first introduced to The Postman’s work cycling around Brighton doing my shopping during lockdown. Rock 'n' roll eh?
Every day I’d pass larger than life versions of Freddie Mercury + Debbie Harry on the street + I must confess I thought wow, it’d be great if the Levs were up there too! But I never thought it’d actually happen.
...Cut to a few months later - I’ve started on Instagram + struck up an artistic friendship with The Postman guys. So when they said they’d like to do the Levs I was overjoyed - + v flattered too!
Cut to another few months later + a huge mural has appeared of us in the postman’s iconic style. We all love it!
That’s why we’re offering it to u guys to buy as a limited edition print.
