A Tale of Two Cities

CLIENT : The Apartments (AUS)
Screen print Poster

1985-2015, Paris and New York City.
A screenprint to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the Australian band The Apartments, lead by its incredible songwriter, Peter Milton Walsh.

After eighteen years away from the music scene The Apartments released their fifth album, No Song, No Spell, No Madrigal, in the Spring of 2015, on Microcultures, a Parisian label. At the same time in New York City, the Captured Tracks label released a new version of The Evening Visits… And Stays for Years, the first album by the band, which for many became an instant classic on its release in 1985.
A wonderful coincidence that we just had to celebrate!

I worked on the artworks of two of The Apartments’ albums (7 Songs and No Song, No Spell, No Madrigal) and on the posters of two of their tours in 2012 and 2015. These experiences made me grow closer to Peter Milton Walsh. The idea for the artwork of No Song, No Spell, No Madrigal is the result of conversations between us.

The screen print we have now created is an allegory of Peter Milton Walsh's universe. A universe full of music, literature, and movie references. A universe where the characters from the best American novels meet Nouvelle Vague movies. A universe where the present is lived like a sublimed past.
This new project is a new four-handed illustration with my friend Stephane Constant from Dezzig.

The screenprint is available on the Dezzig website
