This is an extremely rare giant silkscreen print signed by both Moebius and Geof Darrow. There were very few pieces from the City of Fire portfolio which were ever published elsewhere or as separate editions, this being one of the glorious exceptions.
Aedena published this print in 1985, the heavyweight cartridge paper measures almost 90cm metre across and over 65cm tall.
Geoff Darrow moved to Paris to collaborate alongside Moebius for the now legendary City of Fire portfolio - Darrow would pencil the scenes and Moebius would subsequently ink and colour. The world being imperfect, Moebius moved away from Paris very soon after the American artist Darrow had come over, so they would complete most of the work by correspondence!
This piece, a cross between a futuristic Paris metro station and a bizarre space station packed with alien life forms, transportations and technology is certainly packed with all the chaos and brilliance of being lost in a new dimension!
Darrow and Moebius collaborated on this together and the dynamism and scarcity of this print has it firmly cemented in legend.
