A while back I spent two weeks living in East London in a largely Indian neighbourhood where the local pub played South Asian classics rather than your typical top 40. Our stay coincided with the Hindu festival Diwali, and for the first week fireworks lit up the night sky. One evening as we walked home from dinner we passed a young boy in the middle of the road lighting a small firework as his family stood in the background and watched. Diwali East London was inspired by this encounter. In my print a young boy stares down at a firecracker in his hand, while behind him two small fireworks cast another young boy and girl in silhouette.
As all prints are hand pressed, each will have some minor differences, which I believe adds to the character of the print. I cannot guarantee that you will receive the edition featured in the photo.
