Check Out These Poignant Fan Art Tributes To The Late Great Ian Curtis On The 35th Anniversary Of ‘Closer’

This week, Joy Division’s second and final album ‘Closer’ hit 35. It’s a dark and swirling classic, released two months after the death of frontman Ian Curtis. Marking it, here’s some fan-drawn tributes: from mmc1uk’s watercolour painting, which they created to raise awareness of epilepsy – a condition Curtis suffered – to Czech artist Don Mirakl’s kaleidoscopic piece, which perfectly encapsulates the band’s name. Check out these alongside the other great pieces below:
