Unseen Thin Lizzy artwork goes on sale online

6 Dec 2010

Unseen Thin Lizzy artwork created by renowned Irish artist Jim Fitzpatrick is to go on sale on his OWJO store on Facebook to mark the approaching 25th anniversary of the death of Thin Lizzy frontman Phil Lynott.

OWJO is a portable online store that allows people to sell online on any platform, including Facebook.

Fitzpatrick worked with Thin Lizzy to create some of the band’s most recognisable album covers and artwork, such as Black Rose and Johnny the Fox. In the course of this project there will also be work published that most Lizzy fans have never seen.

“We worked with Jim to create this online store for fans to have access to previously unavailable works and produce a gallery showcasing his work,” said Karl James from OWJO.

“It’s important that this artwork reaches the fans of Thin Lizzy and at such a poignant time and we were happy to help Jim provide this.”

The oils are back in town

To purchase one of the limited-edition prints from Jim’s OWJO, visit Jim Fitzpatrick Gallery fan page on Facebook.

“It’s important that these prints be made available for the anniversary of Phil’s passing so that fans are able to have a piece of the band’s history, some of which has not been seen by the public before,” Fitzpatrick said.
