‘The Humble Magnificent – Red’ is a Silkscreen Print by contemporary street-artist Donk. The print is from a limited edition of 150 and is signed and numbered by the artist.

Contemporary artist and photographer Donk uses the urban landscape as his canvas of choice, creating exceptional, large-scale murals on the walls and shutters of East London. His print work combines photographic elements with hand finished detail for a richly evocative aesthetic.

‘The Humble Magnificent – Red’ depicts a young boy standing tall while dressed up in silk kimono, fez-style hat, and eye mask. Donk has mounted the hazy, black and white photo, along with his own name in ornamental type and a ghostly, floral design, onto a background of flat, tomato-red, studded with golden polka dots for eye-catching texture.

Donk’s mixed media approach, blending photography with paint and collage elements, adds aesthetic power to the bizarre image, for a breathtaking piece of contemporary art.
