Devo: Are we not Men?Mus_DevoNotMen_Blk_12x12 $45.00
The late 1970s and early 1980s ushered in a 'new wave' of music and including a quirky group out of Akron, Ohio named Devo. Their debut album is entitled Q: Are We Not Men? A: We Are Devo! The 1977 debut single Booji Boy from the album featured a picture of a kid wearing modified 3D movie glasses. Along with the band's Energy Dome hats, 3D glasses became a signature part of Devo's stage wardrobe.
The inspiration behind our 'Devo: Are we not Men?' Art print
This piece is a blend of several Devo-inspired ideas. A modified black and white photo of an audience watching a 3D movie (circa 1950s) forms the backdrop and connects the piece thematically to their Boooji Boy single. The intentionally all-female audience puts the focal point on the male character. And, while the 1977 album predates Devo's signature Energy Dome era, it serves as foreshadowing. I also just love the expressions in the photo.
If you're a music fan and love new wave music as much as I do, this memorable piece will make a great addition to your art collection.
