There are often new and exciting items that appear upon the walls of Brighton’s much loved boutique rock’n’roll hotel. Check out some familiar and some specially-created prints from celebrated artist Jem Panufnik, from April 9th to June 4th 2020.
Recognised mainly for the iconic artwork (as well as the grooves) he produced for Finger Lickin’ Records, the world-renowned dance music label he co-founded in the late 90s, Jem Panufnik’s highly collectible and instantly recognisable graphics have cemented their reputation in club culture, having adorned countless record sleeves, t- shirts, posters and animations, as well as appearing as beer labels, band logos plus a zillion tattoos on a multitude of appendages!
His popular new print series of “subverted scenes and corrupted pleasures” sees Jem cleverly inject a punch of witty surrealism into some very famous classic landmarks, Brighton being the latest willing victim.
Following collections staged in London and San Francisco, the infamous Hotel Pelirocco is a perfect setting for a more intimate, Brighton-centric selection of Jem’s past and present work, with of course a tasty fat dollop of seaside sauciness…
If the hotel’s logo looks familiar that’s because it was designed by none other than Jamie Reid of Sex Pistols fame so the Peli has it’s roots firmly planted in the music industry’s iconic artwork….
