Festival season is upon us once again and over the next few weeks revellers up and down the country with be packing their wellies, instant noodles and cider in preparation for some alfresco party action. The biggest festival in the UK and arguably the world, Glastonbury, kicks off this week and artist Stanley Donwood has once again created an incredible design for this year’s festival.
Stanley Donwood studied with Radiohead front man Thom Yorke at The University of Exeter and has provided artwork for all of the band’s albums since their 1995 breakthrough ‘The Bends’. He also has a long standing affiliation with Glastonbury. We have limited edition silkscreen prints of Donwood’s designs for both ‘The Glastonbury Festival 2011’ and ‘Glastonbury Festival 2013’.
The image on this year’s programme shows a cropped section from Donwood's painting ‘Nether’ which is also available at artrepublic as a limited edition giclee print in an edition of 100. Donwood's latest series of paintings examines the relationship humans have had with woods and forests over time. This painting is the perfect pick as thousands of people prepare to return to nature this summer and embrace life in a field (if only for the weekend)!
