Below is a full collection of the works produced for this project - organized by artist.


b. 2001

Izzy Goodhead is an experimental artist who dabbles in a number of mediums, acrylic paint being her favourite at the moment. She enjoys softer colours in her work, and aims to bring a childlike approach to her pieces, as she is heavily inspired by children’s book illustrations (She’d love to write her own someday). You can find her on Instagram at, where she can be messaged if you ever have any commission enquiries!

Cheery Sun

‘The moment I saw the original Screamadelica album art, I knew I wanted to convert it into something that was more my style, easier on the eye, cuter, softer. I still wanted it to be bold, so I opted for acrylic paints as they are thick and easy to layer, and they're super vibrant. With acrylic you get so many fun textures that you don't find with many other mediums, which I feel really brings more personality to the piece.’

Crayon Room

‘I was reading through Paul Cannell's obituary, and something that really stuck with me and made me laugh was how his work occasionally looked so much like children's art that he managed to sell art made by actual children as his own. He would use his non dominant hand to achieve this look, so I did the same here. I used the concept of him staring at his ceiling to see the damp water spot, and translated that to the view I had while lying in bed. While trying to make my work seem more childlike, choosing the medium was easy. Crayons are the weapon of choice for nearly all art that gets stuck to the fridge when it's brought home from school, so I picked up my own and started scribbling. I found it really therapeutic to make a piece of art where I knew it wasn't going to look beautiful; it was supposed to be a bit chaotic and messy.’


b. 2001


Eva Michael White is a costume / textile artist who works primarily with repurposed materials, she creates clothing and costumes as well as various multimedia pieces. She is active on her Instagram (@mondo.gonzo) or can be contacted directly via email at


soft sculpture costume

‘I developed my ideas by drawing from Cannell’s paintings, I really enjoyed the range of vivid colours and the large expressive marks and shapes. This is something that I really wanted to show through the piece, as well as Cannell’s ideas around childlike drawings. The simple yet exaggerated shapes really spoke to me, I wanted to create something that uses his range of colour and textures as well as those odd exaggerated shapes. I have used entirely recycled and reused materials to create a soft sculpture costume reflecting my ideas; I love working with soft sculpture because of the opportunities to make such large and cartoonish creations, and it really feels like a perfect medium to portray Cannell’s concepts through.’


b. 2001


Amelia Sharp is a painter who has met so many briefs that she has a wide range of experience from realism (her favourite), to greeting cards, to fun, subjective pieces such as what is displayed here! She can be contacted for commissions at

Exposed To The Cannellements

‘Cannell lived briefly in Cornwall and my idea was to work his style into a landscape from the county, knowing that the bright colours and textures would fit well into the vibrant scenes you can find here. Upon researching further, I saw that he uses oils – as I do usually – and was originally inspired by impressionism, so the piece can also serve as a sort of bridge between his life and the influences and the abstraction he later produced. I think his pieces are wonderfully spirited and animated so having them bleed through into a traditional painting would depict how his work literally affects an atmosphere that way.'


b. 1999


Jacob Startin has a fascination for what the subconscious brings forward through our art. This is mainly in the realms of drawing. His practice revolves around catching the seemingly random synchronicities of mediums he is working in and developing them into constellations of meaning. He can be reached through Instagram (@psychlops__) or E-mail at

Tribute Pieces (a-c)

‘I made these pieces in an act of paying homage to what he believed in, what he practiced and who he was as an artist. Although the resulting pieces are different in style, I tried to remain true to his philosophies of creation. Through this method you always find something you weren't expecting, just beginning and going is good enough. The compilation of half accidents creates mazes of meaning and I think this is what he fell in love with.’


b. 1999


Erin Dromgoole specializes in print making, mainly working in Lino. She has a passion for colour and pattern with a lot of her prints being abstractions of patterns in nature that she sees and decides to transfer to print. When she’s not printing, she does anything that she can get her hands on, which includes drawing, painting and even crochet. She likes to be big, bold, and expressive with her work.

lino prints

‘The piece I have created is a series of colourful Lino prints that were inspired by Primal Scream’s Don’t Fight It, Feel It sleeve designed by Paul Cannell. On the right hand side of the sleeve there’s a face that really caught my eye as I was researching him for this project, I decided to take this face and simplify it down to basic shapes to create my own abstract face that played with perspective and colour. It started with just shapes on a small Lino print and I then cut out the shapes so the print plate ends up being like a jigsaw, allowing me to apply the different colours to each cut out piece. Finally I carved out the details like eyes, nose and lips and print over the coloured shapes like a stamp.’


b. 2001

Daisy is a full-time fashion student from Exeter. A lot of her work makes statements about organised religion, and tends to have religious themes. She also has a fascination with floral imagery and the contrast between what is natural and man-made. She switches between mediums  lot, opting for photography or fine art as well, depending on the point she is making with each piece. She is available through either her portfolio on Instagram ( or by email:

Comfort Blanket

quilt dress

‘I came up with this dress inspired by Paul Cannell’s influence of childhood in some of his work. I came to realize that children don’t get as many opportunities for self-expression as others do, with a lot of their life being dictated for them, and that the biggest collection they have that expresses themselves would be in the way they choose to decorate and fill their bedroom. I took this idea on board when I chose three different children’s duvet sets to quilt together to make up the skirt. The dress is short and has a wide, playful silhouette, seeming to me like something a child would wear to a birthday party.’


b. 1998


 Folk, narrative and the uncanny drive Alexandra’s work. She tries to create art that suggests a further story hidden just out of frame. Horror and how we react to things which break our perceived norm fascinate her endlessly and her images often involve resolute or restful figures isolated in dark environments being consumed by growth and decay.

The Man In The Sun

acrylic and polymer clay on acetate

‘My piece uses layering up of many elements to try and capture the physicality of Cannel's mark-making and how art can develop a life of its own. The iconic 'psychedelic sun' becomes partially 3D sitting in an environment of acetate sheets painted with Cannel inspired mark-making. Reflecting on how the artist can remain within art which has transcended their name and life, my layered up symbols can't help but obscure each other and behind the wide oval eyes of the sun is a more naturalistic face, my man inside or behind the sun.’


b. 2002

Aiden Hackman is an artist who feels it is a must to create a message within work, whether it’s a deep world-relevant message or something just for him to understand, remember and evolve from. Aiden grew up staring at his dad’s Screamadelica sleeve proudly displayed on the wall, so when he saw an ad for the project, he knew just what to do. Having known the piece his whole life and just now finding out about the artist added another level to his artistic response.

Various Oil Pieces

'This piece was visually inspired by a lot of Paul’s work – but a quote of his that really gave me a whole new view on my artistic views as a whole was "I was sick of what my left hand was doing. I like drawing with my right hand because it’s messy, it’s like a kid. It’s clumsy." I decided to use my non-dominant hand to produce entirely random strokes and shapes. Using oil paints added another level to this – as it allowed me to layer the piece, gradually making it more interesting and detailed.'
