In honour of John Lennon’s 75th birthday, Beautiful Crime artist Russell Marshall has produced a limited edition screen print endorsed by Yoko Ono Lennon and photographer, Bob Gruen.

About

The print will  be released on what would have been Lennon's 75th birthday on 9th October, both online at the Beautiful Crime gallery,  which will be transformed into Suite 1742 of the famous Montreal hotel for a week-long bed-in.

Beautiful Crime invite Beatle fans and Lennon lovers alike to celebrate the life of the iconic musician by staging their own 'bed in' by transforming the gallery into suite 1742, the room where the couple stayed at the Queen Elizabeth hotel, Montreal. Beatles fans and Lennon lovers alike are being called forward and join us in remembering the iconic singer-songwriter. 

 Through his art, Russell Marshall celebrates one of music and culture's most highly regarded icons.  Via the delicate art of Silkscreen printing, particularly at such a large size, Marshall brings the famous image of Lennon to the art world, in a fantastic colourway of blue on pearl. As much a research process as it is an artistic printing process, Marshall sought and agreed permission to use the image from both the legendary photographer who took the image in 1969, Bob Gruen and Yoko Ono Lennon via the John Lennon Foundation.

The support, endorsement and permission of both Bob Gruen and Yoko Ono, who have reserved editions 1 and 2 out of 25, adds a distinction to the print and its reproduction in Russell's signature silk-screen style

The immersive hotel room will be open to the public from 9th - 16th October 2015 at Beautiful Crime gallery
