Devo: Are we not men?Mus_DevoNotMen_Blk_12x12 $44
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 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: Energy Dome' Art print
This piece is a blend of several Devo themes. A modified black and white photo of an audience watching a 3D movie (circa 1950s) forms the backdrop and connects the piece thematically to the Boooji Boy single. I intentionally removed all the men from the audience except for the focal point male character to connect the concept with the album's title. And, while Are We Not Men? predates the Devo Energy Dome era, it serves as foreshadowing and ties into the idea of how futuristic 3D glasses were in the 50s. I also just love the photos' expressions, and the look on the lone young guy wearing the Energy Dome makes the piece.
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.
