AUCTION - Radiohead - Santa Barbara '17 - Emek - Artist Edition - Mint

Now this is a very popular Emek silkscreen. Emek designed this special VIP poster for Radiohead’s 2017 show at the lovely Santa Barbara Bowl in Santa Barbara, California. Here is what Emek had to say about the inspiration behind this work:

"I was inspired to create this image from the title of Radiohead’s Pyramid Song and the lyrics of the song 2+2=5; the driving repetitive tempo reminded me of an endless Koyaanisqatsi assembly line...In a matrix-like world, worshipping false idols in the march towards "progress" is only feeding the instrument of our own destruction. Unknowingly creating the means to our own end, the giant Radiohead consumes all who feed it. As advanced as we are, we are still primitive in regard to seeing the consequences of our actions in the future. The eyes are from the HAL 9000 computer (2001) The "teeth" are made from golden pyramids. The perspective of the workers disappearing also creates a pyramid shape, re-iterating the shape of the all-seeing eye." – Emek

This is the artist edition VIP poster from a print run of just 99 copies. The poster measures an imposing 36” x 24”. It is printed with rich, glossy inks. Emek has signed, numbered & doodled this edition. The condition is mint.
