Martin Creed creates 50 unique hand painted record sleeves for new art edition, Work No. 1912





Your chance to own a unique artwork from Turner Prize winner Martin Creed.

Celebrated British artist and musician Martin Creed is to release a new limited edition of 50 artworks, each hand-painted on his latest album Mind Trap. Work No. 1912 sees the Turner Prize-winner re-interpret a previous painting Work No. 1674 Anouschka which adorned the original release, across fifty unique sleeves showing Creed at his playful best.

Recorded across Chicago and London, Creed enlisted Fiery Furnaces and Franz Ferdinand alumni Andy Knowles to co-produce Mind Trap; the latest in the artist’s ongoing collaboration with The Vinyl Factory, which has seen him release his debut Love To You as a similarly hand-painted edition as well as string of limited 12″s including Where You Go (2010), Chicago (2012) and Work No. 1660 (2013).

Featuring sixteen tracks, the limited hand-painted edition edition of Mind Trap, Work No. 1912 is being released by The Vinyl Factory in an edition of 50 unique copies, each hand signed and numbered by the artist, on a die-cut gatefold sleeve and pressed onto 180g vinyl.
