Description

When I make street art pieces I tend to make them as something that will only be seen when they are on the wall. This imbues them with a kind of magic that a lot of visual art doesn’t have. They go up, they get tagged, then they are gone. It’s the Circle of Street Art. I made this piece over a couple of days at a festival in the Vault Artists’ Studios. It is a mixture of paste up and spray paint with a couple of heavy doses of Belfast rain. About a month after I made this I got a message from someone asking if I would make it into a print in the future and for the first time with one of my street art pieces I thought fuck yeah this would make a nice print. One day I will revisit this as a screen-print but for now this digital version will have to do. This print measures 21×29cm and is printed onto off white Claire Fontaine 220gsm acid free art paper. Each print is signed and numbered with an artist’s stamp on the back. It comes packaged in a cello bag and is posted flat. The Forbidden Fruit Wagon is a limited edition of 40.

Many thanks
