“I’ve made no secret about how The Prisoner is my favorite television show of all time,” Weston said in a statement. “I first saw it when it was repeated on Channel 4 on Monday nights during 1983-4. All my friends watched it too, and we’d run to school on a Tuesday morning to meet up and discuss what we’d seen the night before. We’d excitedly offer our theories about what it all meant and where it was going.”

“I have always wanted to create my own artistic tribute to The Prisoner,” he continued. “Fortuitously, my friends at Vice Press offered me the chance to fulfill my lifelong ambition to create a loving artistic homage, timed to coincide with the show’s 50th anniversary, and these new official silkscreen prints are the result. I could not have been more delighted and I poured heart and soul into the project. I wanted to create The Prisoner poster that my school-friends and I would have wanted for our bedroom walls, way back in the 1980s!”
