Fri, Feb 9, 2018The ‘Joy Division inspired Manchester Bee’ by CJTaylord Art.
When creating this piece, Christian was inspired by Joy Division’s ‘Unknown Pleasures’ album cover art, which he has cleverly used to symbolise the emblem of our great city – the Manchester Bee. In simple terms, the Unknown Pleasures album cover is a “stacked plot” of the radio emissions given out by a pulsar, a “rotating neutron star”; which grew to become an iconic symbol of Manchester’s Joy Division. Together with the Manchester Bee, which has been a symbol of Manchester’s hard working industrial past since the 1800's, Christian has brought his passion for Manchester’s history, colour and striking imagery together. Christians’ meticulous and open-minded approach allowed him to embody this core imagery in an eye-catching and inspiring way.
