In a prolific career that has spanned almost four decades, Boris Purushottama Grebenshikov has continued to enchant his audiences with new sounds and a lyrical language that has earned him the affectionate title “Poet Laureate of Russia”. Accompanied by an international ensemble of musicians performing on instruments from the sitar and tabla to the violin and flute, he presents a fusion of his own classic folk melodies with sounds from around the world. “Music is an ocean. I just venture into the ocean and follow the waves.” says the artist. I am truly honoured to have been able to design posters, leaflets and programmes for the tour.

51st State Band is probably the largest band in South West London, and most of its members are aged 7 to 18. The band is funded by local authorities and sponsors, providing instruments and tuition, as well as great opportunities to perform. Purple is the band’s colour, and they had a very simple logo which I jazzed up a little. The client wanted a 1930’s “speakeasy” style, but light and fun enough to appeal to kids. The impact is mainly visual; the band provided plenty of great images and videos, which I supplemented with stock drawings to create texture and atmosphere. This is probably one of the most inspiring projects I’ve been lucky enough to work on! I also do regular advertising print work for them — you can see a couple of posters and leaflets in the gallery above.
This is a poster and leaflet design for a musical celebration at The Hidden Gardens in Glasgow. The event takes place overnight, and the set is lit with lanterns. My aim was to give the sense of a garden at night, going into daytime, framing one strong musical image.
