‘Doli Capax - Printers Proof #2’ is a five colour, hand-painted/ hand-sprayed Silkscreen print by contemporary art collective Prefab77. Printed onto 300gsm Munken Smooth Paper, the print is an original and is signed by the artist.
Art collective Prefab77 take contemporary street art to new heights - literally. Their urban artworks to-date include awe-inspiring paste-ups in Newcastle and Brighton, each spanning the size of a three storey building. Their work relies on heavy texture, using collage techniques, thick application of gloss, and bounteous coatings of spray-paint, to create bold, busy and beautiful prints. ‘Doli Capax - Printers Proof #2’ is an experimental proof, created during the production of Prefab77’s sell-out original ‘Doli Capax'.
A striking image, ‘Doli Capax - Printers Proof #2’ depicts a crowbar-wielding woman, comprised from an eccentric array of collage cuttings: her photorealist face peers out from a halo of kaleidoscopic patterns, which merge into a full-bodied, graphic dress of impressive proportion. Against a busy monochrome backdrop of lotus-flowers and lightning-bolts, softly hued with scatterings of spray-paint, the print is a compelling triumph of contemporary street-to-canvas aesthetics.
