Artist's description:

A little bit of art imitating art here. This lad was standing, looking at a graffiti covered wall and was so engrossed, it gave me enough time to draw him. Art isn't always to be found in galleries. The urge to make marks is older than civilisation so it's odd that we revere art as the most civilised and civilising of human achievements.

I love the urban landscape because it is almost entirely made out of the marks people make on their world, either functional or fun filled.

This drawing uses a mix of media. For the transferred image I print out one of my digital photographs on an inkjet printer, place it face down onto a fine quality, heavyweight artpaper, soak the back in nail varnish remover and quickly pass it through an etching press. This pulls the pigments out of one paper and into the other, diffusing and mixing them as it does so. The effect throws up unexpected and sometimes spectacular combinations of colours. I then use fine point Faber Castell Pitt artists’ drawing pens for the line work.
