Joseph Warren 451 Artwork

We asked artist Joseph Warren to create an artwork based on Fahrenheit 451, the novel by Ray Bradbury. The brief was to create one single artwork which could be broken up into four hundred and fifty one pieces and distributed individually. This was part our celebration of 451life and part adventure – we wanted to see if it could be done.

Ironically Joseph has used Bradbury’s dystopian themes to create something beautiful and inspiring. This is a celebration of creativity – informed by Joseph’s own desire to archive imagery from our graphic past ‘Stuff your eyes with wonder, he said, live as if you'd drop dead in ten seconds. See the world. It's more fantastic than any dream made or paid for in factories’. Ray Bradbury
