‘Lyric Art: 200 Years of Warner/Chappell Music’ is an exhibition that just opened at StolenSpace gallery, which is in the Old Truman Brewery building, just off Brick Lane in East London, and runs until the 9th of October. Warner/Chappell, who are part of Warner Brothers and have a catalogue of over 1 million songs copyrighted to them, have commissioned ten designers to create posters involving some of the famous lyrics that the company own. All the posters use the same blue and orange colour scheme of the companies branding.
“The 10 new pieces provide new visual interpretations of well-loved lyrics from some of the most famous songs ever written including Led Zeppelin’s ‘Stairway to Heaven’, Radiohead’s ‘Karma Police’, New Order’s ‘True Faith’ and Morrissey’s ‘There is a Light That Never Goes Out’.
The designers involved in the project are:
Yomar Augusto, Job Wouters, Till Wiedeck, HelloMe, Stefan Glerum, Julia, Jung + Wenig, Michiel Schuurman, Paul Thurlby, Fanette Mellier, Nick Bell”
