The street artist’s latest work of art - a giant shire horse and a young boy - was displayed on the wall of the Swedish brand’s east London office.
London-based street artist Donk was putting his stamp on fashion and sportswear brand J.Lindeberg’s offices near Old Street. Using his enigmatic Xerox and colour-wash paste-up technique, an image of a giant Shire horse moving slowly forward whilst carrying a young boy on its back was displayed on a sidewall of the building. The image of the boy (Donk’s son) represents the lone Londoner with the Shire horse symbolising the city of London. The work explores aspects of time, transience and growing up in London.
The project developed as something to follow the Biannual Book created by the Scandinavian fashion label, J.Lindeberg wanted to use the space as a platform for a range of artists to promote their craft.
The wall has previously been used by various street artists and there are hopes to turn it into a ‘canvas’ for different creatives that can be changed every few months.
