Local artist contributes to Sony Music art collection It’s Pop It’s Art

Studio Moross’s Guy Field  has most recently worked on a collaboration with SONY/ATV MUSIC PUBLISHING on a project entitled IT’S POP, IT’S ART.  The limited edition posters, prints and illustrations were all inspired by music lyrics and are an interesting representation of the words brought to life.

Each artwork is inspired by songs in the Sony/ATV Music Publishing collection – the world’s #1 music publisher globally and home to some of the most influential songs of the 20th century – and is officially licensed.

It’s Pop It’s Art celebrates our connection to songs that have shaped a generation. In a world where everything is becoming increasingly digital, these visual cover-versions of our favourite songs bring a new life to the memories attached to the music.

Each artwork comes in a limited run of 150 copies, and is officially IPIA stamped with a Certificate of Authenticity. These artworks are priced at £225.00 (framed) and £150.00 (unframed) each.

The first capsule collection features nine artworks.

Studio Moross have designed the following:

‘Girls Just Wanna Have Fun’ (written by Robert Hazard)

Made famous by Cyndi Lauper

Designed by Studio Moross

  • Feisty, feminist anthem that captured the spirit of the Equal Rights movement
  • “The track was originally a man’s account of bedding women – until Cyndi Lauper transformed it into a rallying cry for sexual equality.” – Emma Green, The Atlantic (2014).
  • The song was Cyndi Lauper’s breakthrough hit in 1983, reaching #2 on the US Billboard Hot 100 and eventually becoming a worldwide hit – widely recognised as one of the most popular songs of the 1980s.
  • Just like the artwork, the song reminds us that beneath the sparkly veneer lies a strong feminist message.

‘All You Need is Love’ (written by John Lennon and Paul McCartney)

Made famous by The Beatles

Designed by Studio Moross

  • This July marks the 50th anniversary of this timeless Beatles song.
  • A true “flower power” anthem that captured the spirit of the time, ‘All You Need is Love’ was written and performed for the first time on the world’s very first live global television link – in front of 400 million people. What better way to spread a message of love?
  • ‘All You Need is Love’ reached #1 in 9 countries including the United States and United Kingdom

‘Last Night A DJ Saved My Life’ (written by Michael Cleveland)

Made famous by Indeep

Designed by Studio Moross

  • A dancefloor classic capturing a unique melting pot moment where house, hip-hop and disco collided.
  • Rolling Stone declared it as “one of the greatest songs ever written about being a girl, listening to the radio, or any combination of the two”.
  • The single reached #2 on the US club charts and #10 on the R&B/Hip Hop singles chart in 1982. The following year, the single peaked at #13 in the UK.
  • The song has been covered and sampled by countless DJs and artists – from 5ive to Mariah Carey and Madonna.
