Art & Hue presents Euro Song

Stylish pop art inspired by singers from the European Song Contest

With the iconic song contest being hosted in the United Kingdom this year, Art & Hue presents a collection of stylish pop art featuring singers from across the years in homage to the European kitsch-fest.

Originally created to bring the nations of Europe together after the Second World War, the contest has produced singers and groups who endure to this day, as well as creating its own brand of Euro-Speak song titles which transcend language barriers.

Who can forget such classic song titles as “Boom Bang a Bang“, “Diggi Loo Diggi Ley“, “La La La“ & “Ding a Dong“? Well not Art & Hue as they all appear in this graphic print along with “Royaume Uni Douze Points“, a phrase that hadn’t been heard for many years until 2022.

The collection features the winning British acts of Sandie Shaw, Lulu, & Brotherhood of Man, plus British entries who were just pipped at the post to finish in second place, including Cliff Richard, Mary Hopkin, The Shadows, & Matt Monro.

Winning European acts included in the collection are France Gall & Udo Jurgens, who won in 1965 and 1966 for Luxembourg & Austria respectively, Massiel who won for Spain in 1968 with “La, La, La“, and Switzerland’s Lys Assia who was the first ever winner at the inaugural 1956 edition of the song contest.

Ireland has a record seven wins in the contest which started with Dana in 1970 followed by Johnny Logan who won as a singer in 1980 & 1987, and as a songwriter in 1992.

The collection also includes Netherlands entrants Anneke Grönloh and Milly Scott who broke boundaries and made history as the first non-white participants of the contest in 1964 and 1966 respectively.

Written in the late 17th century by the French Baroque composer Marc-Antoine Charpentier, the song contest adopted the centuries-old fanfare of “Te Deum” to mark the start of each contest, as well as capping the end of the event with a reprise.
