John Lennon may always be remembered first and foremost for his musical career. However, his work in art and political commentary has formed the background to the legacy of this cultural icon. His deeply personal sketches show the wit, quiet observation and constantly creative expression Lennon is still known for. Lennon’s artwork touches on both personal and political themes. His family life and romantic relationship are often featured, as are commentaries on the societal issues of the time. The artwork itself has been published and promoted by Yoko Ono, Lennon’s wife at the time of his death – her signature is added to all of the officially published editions of Lennon’s artworks.

About this limited edition: Sabi – John Lennon’s fascination with Japan and its wonderful language was the inspiration for Sabi. The word Sabi does not translate into English, but the closest might be the equivalent of the word “cool”, except that Sabi is a product of old Japan. This is what John thought was cool; a guy meditating among a peaceful background reflecting all that is tranquil and divine around him. Published by Bag One Arts in 1997 is a Serigraph on Stonehenge paper

Edition 26/300 Signed in pencil by Yoko Ono Stamped with the Lennon estate mark.
