‘Play Nice’ is a Screen Print by urban artist John Doe. Printed onto 250gsm Fedrigoni ‘Materica’ Gesso Paper, the print is hand pulled using acrylic/iridescent/interference inks and every background has been hand painted with acrylics and spray paint, making each one unique. From a limited edition of 100.
Urban artist John Doe brings the aerosol-art of the street to the canvas, with his hand finished, spray-painted prints. With a photographic eye for colour and composition, Doe creates prints of striking beauty with a strong aesthetic. ‘Play Nice’ depicts the silhouettes of three children, arms outstretched like aeroplanes in a moment of childish game-play. Attached to the arms of each child, Doe has added nuclear missiles, creating a troubling undertone that sits unexpectedly against the beautiful, acrylic-painted sunset. It’s a powerful image, in both its message and aesthetic, and a piece that proves that great street-art need not be street-bound
