Emek’s new concert poster for an upcoming Singapore performance by The Prodigy is his best work in quite awhile. I could say some things about it myself, but I think I’ll let the man speak for himself:
“The Merlion is the symbol of Singapore. It is a creature with the head of a lion and the body of a fish. Its name is a combination of the words “mermaid” and “lion”. The fish body comes from Singapore’s ancient name back when it was a fishing village — Temasek — meaning “sea town” in Javanese. The lion head represents Singapore’s original name — Singapura — meaning “lion city” in Sanskrit. 22.5″ x 30.5″ screenprint, 10 colors plus a blend.” – EMEK
I will keep you posted about release details in the near future, but just let this one sink in for awhile.
