Amelie Barnathan Does Space DiscoIllustration // Wednesday, 05 Jun 2013
Amelie Barnathan has created a series of artworks for Forage Press dedicated to the musical movement of "Space Disco," a genre of music she calls "a comet in the history of music and one of the coolest and tackiest eighties movements ever." Forage Press is a publication that celebrates the union of visual art and music, featuring an eclectic mix of creative minds who love both of these crucial art forms. Barnathan's exploration of Space Disco depicts the merging of disco music with all that is "futuristic"--robots, cosmic sounds, intergalactic themes. The costumes of these Space Disco bands followed suit, as reflected in these funky, bizarre drawings.
