Artist's description:

This is an original hand-carved linocut exploring themes of cultural and social identity within my native region of the North-East of England. The work is made up of a series of images that are synonymous with the area, whether through industrial heritage (a man at the steelworks in the lower bottom right of the composition) to a drunken woman passed out on a bench on a night out in the city. The latter is often part of the stereotypical make-up as portrayed and even influenced by media, in shows such as Geordie Shore. Social media is eluded to by the Apple logo on the bottom left and, above, a depiction of Cheryl Cole of girl group 'Girl's Aloud' fame, native to Tyneside. Local graffiti and an interesting perspective of local Wearside landmark Penshaw Monument also feature within the piece.

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.
