A hand-signed giclée on paper by Billy Connolly, CBE.

This hand-signed giclée is part of Billy Connolly's Spring 2023 release in his highly successful Born On A Rainy Day collection. Displayed on 100% cotton deckle-edged paper, float-mounted in a black painted and silver foiled pine frames, this artwork will add a bold touch of musical and comedic history to your home.

On creating the piece, Billy says:

“I pondered for ages on the title. I didn’t know what it was, but once I finished it, ‘Bird on a Wire’ by Leonard Cohen kept coming back to me with these birds. I tried to get away from it and eventually had to use it. That’s not the same as stealing a song, it’s just borrowing a title. Leonard Cohen was a good man - he wouldn’t mind.

“I went to my doctor in LA once, and about 15 Buddhists all scrambled past me. I got inside and he said: ‘did you see the Buddhists?’ I said ‘yeah.’ He said: ‘Did you see Leonard?’. He was one of them. Leonard Cohen was living with the Buddhists.

“The man in the picture is sitting on a seat with his legs dangling over, doing a sort of martial art, and the ball is just a ball. The birds let you know which way is up. If you want to know which way to hang it, the birds are the right way up – my drawings come with instructions!”

Also available as part of a portfolio of 6, either framed or unframed.
