Ian George Brown (born 20 February 1963) is an English singer and multi-instrumentalist. He was the lead singer of the alternative rock band the Stone Roses from their formation in 1984. Following the split in 1996, he began a solo career, releasing seven studio albums, a greatest hits compilation, a remix album, an 11 disc box set titled Collection and 19 singles.
He returned to singing for the Stone Roses in 2011, although this did not spell the end of his solo endeavours, on October 25th 2018 releasing First World Problems through Virgin/EMI records. He had a cameo appearance in Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban and celebrated in this limited edition of 50 Pop Art Disruptive print. Signed by the Artist Jim Wheat with his picture duplicated across four squares, each one washed with a neon colour in the style of Pop Art portraiture, and subtly emblazoned with the dollar sign. Focusing the trope of money through people, places, and occasions, Dollarsandart's celebrity prints comment on the tense relationship between fame and finance in contemporary culture.
