Street Artist Donk's Higher Ground Print Edition
Earlier this year we featured the work of London based street artist Donk (Previously on Hookedblog) a regular on the streets of London. The artist is known for his photographic & zerox based paste-up posters which have been appearing on the streets of the city since 2008.
The artwork from the artist we featured on the site back in January 2016 was perhaps the largest work to date we have seen from Donk, titled Higher Ground (Previously on Hookedblog) and pictured above. We an ever increasing percentage of legal street art going up around London, it was refreshing to see Donk creating a site specific work of this scale without permission.
Donk says “ I saw this place under the bridges on Lee river last summer, and decided to try and make a site specific paste-up to fit the gap between the two fly-overs”.
Almost a year on and the Higher Ground wheat pasted work in Hackney Wick is no longer visible, but Donk has created a two layer print edition of the image.

Higher Ground Print
Higher Ground is an original photo composite and two layer screen print that follows a dystopian theme, but which is also intended to express a sense of endurance and hope; and the ability for survival beyond the odds.
The print edition is now available online from Donk's webshop for £180. It's a two layer hand pulled screen print, deep purple & white in edition of #150 printed onto 298gsm Jute stock and 80cm x 60cm in size. Pick up your copy of the Higher Ground Print here. All prints come Signed, numbered & embossed.
