Hand printed silk screen print of Jeremy Levellers acoustic backdrop print. Artwork signed by Jeremy.
'The pic is completely stolen from  Toulouse lautrec .... I just thought that romantic absinthe -soaked imagery perfect for levs acoustic shows back in the earlier 2000s. We all about political music being dangerous but fun.
I changed the figures to include the debonair devil (a nod to mikhail Bulgakov's "the master and margarita"), plus levs imagery often includes the devil fiddler. The fat guy feeling-up the girl with an anarchist arm-band is clearly in for trouble, he's a fool- hence punch's hat (another reoccurring image of ours), she got anarchist arm band but military style eagle on her hat- she don't give a fuck. It's gonna be carnage and the debonair devil looks on, prob eager for both of their souls but he in no hurry...
That's as best I can explain. But can't take credit for image really cos is lautrec's composition.
Just wanted late C19 decadence with some C21 awareness + striking and contradictory themes....
Haha listen to me over-thinking it! But that is how I c it.
The beauty of it is more how others interpret it tho-
Is all pretty loose, as u gather from the above.
