Artist's description:

This is an original hand carved limited edition linocut. It's another work I did that explores cultural and social identity in my home region of the North-East of England. Touching on different aspects. From the industrial heritage of the area, through depictions of coal miners and collieries, to the silhouette of a chemical plant. Then common graffiti seen in the region. The 'FTM' being an abbreviation significant to the great footballing rivalry here of Newcastle and Sunderland! Near the centre of the work 'Andy Capp' the comic strip character from English newspapers, who was meant to typify the Northern working class man, can be seen pointing and seemingly laughing at the popular TV show logo 'Britain's Got Talent'. The work brings together a series of images not to make a commentary as such, but to leave ideas open to the viewer's own interpretation.

This is a limited edition linocut, printed on quality printmaking paper.

Your print will come wrapped in protective tissue paper to reach you in the best condition.

If you have any questions relating to the work before purchase please don't hesitate to ask me.

Materials used:

linoleum, printmaking ink, carving tools
