THE STORY BEHIND THIRD MAN MONKEY
This limited edition print has now sold out.
I have come up with the Third Man Monkey and turned it into a limited edition of 33 prints to celebrate the release of the White Stripes performance in Teatro Amazonas Opera House in Manaus, Brazil.
The golden lion tamarin only lives in the Amazon rainforest, and its abundant golden hair that frames a charismatic black face fits perfectly with the yellow and black colour scheme of Jack White's record label, Third Man Records.
The monkey plays a recurring role in Third Man history: One monkey is seeing red and jumping on the bed in 1999 ("Jimmy The Exploder"), and in 2012 two monkeys jumped on a bed, and one fell off and hit his head on the ground ("Trash Tongue Talker"). Adding to the jungle goodness, at TMR storefronts in Nashville and Detroit you can drop a coin and watch The Third Man Monkey Band play.

Printed with archival pigment inks on 240gsm / 90 lb watercolour paper. The pigment inks capture the depth and detail of the original artwork and are colour-fast for 100+ years.
I have carefully chosen the paper based on its ability to reproduce impressive art prints, boasting vivid colours, deep blacks and extraordinary reproduction of detail.
