Damn Fine Print brings you our third limited edition print in our ongoing literary collaboration with artistic genius and all-round nice guy Steve Simpson.
A beautiful quote written by the great poet Oscar Wilde, hand sketched by Steve and then lovingly screen-printed by hand on heavy 300gsm off-white paper with separate layers of red and turquoise ink to create a deep midnight blue mix.
Each print is screenprinted onto 700 x 500 mm cuts of paper, signed by Steve and limited to just 161 pressings to mark the anniversary of Wilde's birthday (October 16, 1854).
Not happy to rest there we used a cheeky glow-in-the-dark ink for a second hidden layer, giving a whole new image when the lights go out at night.
All prints are €80, signed and numbered by the artist and carefully rolled and packaged in a sturdy postal-friendly tube.

The Grand Canal. We’ve been living away from Dublin for the last 6 years and miss it very much. We always walked along the canal on our way to and home from town so to us it reminds of the feeling of entering the city. It’s always filled with activity and life, both wild and human.

About the piece This piece is a sister print to my very first collaboration with Damn Fine Print. I initially designed a character called Liberty Hal (based on Liberty Hall) and this led to my new picture book ‘TiN’ (published this September). I am a big fan of Dublin’s Motley Crew of buildings on our low lying skyline and wanted to explore these familiar structures as characters in their own right with a bigger, busier piece of artwork. Dublin’s buildings are as much a part of life in the city as the people are.
Two colour screen print designed by Dublin street artist ADW.
Dimensions 500 x 500
BIO Art has been central to ADW’s life ever since he started dabbling with paintbrushes while still at school. After five years studying animation in Dublin, he moved to Britain to work for computer games company. In 2008 he moved back to Ireland and began creating street art full-time. A determined creative and social activist, the economic collapse provided the backdrop for much of his early work. Laced with satire and burnt by honesty, his pieces are often imbued with a dash of acerbic humour. ADW quickly gained notoriety as one of Ireland’s boldest street artists who has continually pushed the boundaries of stencil craft to new levels. A culture clash of somewhat surreal art, his work begs the public to question the status quo, especially relating to the social structures and political forces that we live under. ADW combines all that he knows from his street-art and digital design background to create works of art that depict his perspective of the world around him, his work is a comment on society, inviting the public to engage and react.
