Ashes57 X Redon

Recent visitors to Redon will have marvelled at the stunning new art installations both inside and outside the venue. We invited Ashes57 to create a site-specific design, with our railway arch in the foreground, and the city rising up high behind it. This design is now proudly displayed in our front window, and you can order the Ashes57 x Redon signed screen print here.

The artwork of Ashes57 will be familiar to many music lovers already – her illustrations and graphic design have adorned countless record sleeves, posters and flyers over the years. As the label manager of Teklife Records, Ashes57 is a key figure in the Footwork scene, and much like our namesake Odilon Redon, her artwork is inspired by the music she loves.

Odilon Redon

“My drawings inspire and are not to be defined. They determine nothing. They place us, as does music, in the ambiguous world of the undetermined “

Odilon Redon, 1840-1916
