Gareth Halliday created this artwork for Noel Gallagher’s 2017 High Flying Birds album Who Built The Moon.
Having seen his artwork on the wall of Damon Albarn’s studio, Noel Gallagher purchased two prints and suggested the idea of collaborating on a project. Listening to the album demo on repeat, Gareth tasked himself with creating a visual world at one with the music.
"It was the otherworldly quality of the instrumental arrangements as much as the lyrics, I felt I was creating imagery for a film soundtrack. I wanted the images to be positive, hedonistic, escapist perhaps, like the music, but with a dark undercurrent."
Gareth Halliday is also including Who Built the Moon?, and MOLO in this auction.
