Bike ( Shorditch Twat )

Unframed only. Embossed and stamped. Posted in a brown tube. Each print is handfinshed.

From a series of 300 original drawings on antique ledger paper, from a collection of sourced ledgers dating from 1860 – 1960’s. Drawings are various sizes but primarily the ledger paper is A4 – A3.

The drawings are a continued study of my observations of the everyday. ‘On Yer Bike’ is a parody of the ‘green biker’. The liberal, arty leftie I see buzzing around East London lost in transit. The juxtaposition of graphite line and original calligraphy unites in showing the beauty of line and the original account entry ( in this piece ,1939 )

Inspired by the bikers and stylers I see on my travels through East London.
