2013 Artist Poster – Signed & Numbered Edition
is on back order
Introducing the official 2013 Lollapalooza poster designed by acclaimed contemporary artist Michael Sieben. Sieben cut his illustrator teeth in the world of skateboarding, developing a signature style populated by a cast of stylized characters that somehow feel like whimsical ambassadors from a slightly shady world. For his spin on Lolla, he explores one of his favorite themes, optimism in the face of adversity, with his band of stranded sailors celebrating the sinking of their own ship. They've chosen to make the best of a bad situation and welcome the misfortune with musical merriment, despite the fact they don't even have real instruments.
The very special Signed & Numbered Edition is silkscreen-printed with six colors on cream-colored uncoated, super-heavyweight, acid-free 100% cotton rag paper. The overall dimensions are 36" x 24". This version does not include the band lineup. Only 100 of these posters are printed, and each is signed by the artist and Perry Farrell. Once they are sold out will not be re-issued.
