Focusing mainly on his cityscapes and Tokyo pieces, the work shows the artist’s fascination with light play – creating emotive expressions of busy night-time streets.
The works draw on DANK’s travels around Japan and east London, with a particular focus on Brick Lane.
There will also be a number of exclusive Geisha prints on show.
Inspired by comics, sci-fi movies, monster flicks and 1960s war films, Billericay-born DANK cites artists such as Georgio de Chirico, Simon Bisley, James Jean and Ashley Wood as influences.
‘I think I am inspired by artists that can draw well, something I rate very highly’, he told Global Street Art magazine.
‘I feel it’s vital for an artist in any field or medium to have drawing as a basic skill. For me, everything I do starts in the sketchbook, no matter what the final outcome, it’s sketches in my sketchbook, I draw at every spare moment I have, it’s my first language!’
Past projects have seen him work with a diverse range of people including Sir Paul McCartney, Kylie, Calvin Harris, Lenny Kravitz.
DANK’s show will run from June 27 – July 7 at Graffik Gallery 284 Portobello Road, London W10
