3DMassive Attack, Ritual Spirit
Lazarides Editions is thrilled to welcome Bristol-based artist Robert Del Naja, aka 3D, with the launch of the new Massive Attack EP, Ritual Spirit. Coinciding with the band's three sell-out shows at London's Brixton Academy from 3rd to 5th February, the artist will take over the South Bank gallery with the release of a hand-finished special edition EP, presented alongside a new box set of limited edition prints and a selection of works by the artist that document the visual history of the band.
Ritual Spirit marks the band's first release since Heligoland in 2010. Each of the 300 limited edition 12" EP sleeves are artfully hand-finished by Del Naja in Lazarides' own print studio on Greenwich Peninsula. 200 will be available for purchase for £30 at Sea Container House at 22 Upper Ground, SE1.
Celebrating the launch of Ritual Spirit, the artist has collaborated with Lazarides Editions studio to create 25 clothbound portfolios containing seven hand-crafted screenprints, each individually signed and numbered, and featuring the artist's iconic symbol prints. Splashed across their album artwork, Del Naja's imagery featured in the box set has become instantly recognizable to fans globally as universal symbols and iconography for the band.
