About the image
Some of the most harrowing sequences of The Wall involved the central character, Pink, a rock star portrayed by Bob Geldof, becoming isolated, disturbed and alienated from the outside world. This image epitomises the increasingly dysfunctional relationship between ‘Pink’ and his Wife.

This illustration imagined the scene where Pink is hallucinating in his hotel room. He imagines he sees his wife in the room and her shadow on the wall becomes a monstrous beast.
