Blondie, Debbie Harry Original Typewriter Artwork for Coachella 2023
James was commissioned by Coachella Music Festival to create a type-written portrait of alternative/ indie rock sensation Debbie Harry, a.k.a Blondie part of the American rock band. The artwork was typed in March 2023 in anticipation of the event for their livestream broadcast globally. James used a 1950’s Smith-Corona Secretarial A3-carraige typewriter to recreate the performer’s portrait.
The artwork is typed with both red and black typewriter ribbons inspired by her legendary 1978 photo shoot with Mick Rock. Concealed within the artwork are type-written messages spelling out the artist’s name. The artwork is predominantly-shaded with the letter “B” indicating the initials of the artist. This is an original drawing measuring 42cm x 29.7cm. This drawing has been typed on 150gsm archival acid free paper and is certified with a type-written letter of authenticity written by the artist qualifying the artwork as an original and not a reproduction. At the request of the customer, the artwork can be framed at an additional fee.
All drawings are hand-packaged by the artist and personalised with a signed message to the customer. In this case, please allow up to 1 week before notification of a tracking number whilst the artist prepares your drawing for posting.
We do not have a return policy unless the artwork has been damaged in transit, then an original replacement artwork will be sent at the request of the customer. International deliveries might be liable for additional taxes and are at the expense of the customer.
