A collaboration between hip design heads Airside and EMI Music Publishing, It's Pop It's Art is a series of extremely limited edition, visual 'cover versions' of iconic songs old and new: a series of beautifully designed screen prints, with the lyrics of the songs involved all rendered in their own colourful and uniquely funky way.
Featured songs in the series include Marvin Gaye's 'What's Going On', The Rolling Stones disco diversion 'Miss You', Indeep's disco/boogie classic 'Last Night A DJ Saved My Life', Primal Scream's uplifting 'Come Together', Jay Z's hip-hop funker 'I Just Wanna Love U' and Amy Winehouse's 'Rehab'.
They'd be a perfect addition to any music nut's wall, and as if this weren't enough, there are also 'Last Night a DJ Saved My Life' T-shirts, coffee mugs and badge sets so you can wear your heart on your sleeve.
The screen prints are currently available from a select number of shops around the UK, including Rough Trade East, London, Mr. Scruff's Vox Pop Music, Manchester and Art Republic, Brighton, and from airsideshop.com, at a price of £150 each.
