Urban Myths I - The Protein Man at Smithfield


Stanley Green was famous for patrolling the West End from the late 60ís to the†early 90ís cautioning people about the perils of protein. Mychael decided to move him from his traditional haunt on Oxford Street to Smithfield Market, as itís the cathedral of protein.

This series encompasses varying takes on the term urban myth. They range from popular London urban myths and famous legends or people to deconstructed classical mythology in urban settings. They employ a variety of processes including drypoint, etching, aquatint, spit-biting, sugar-lift and carborundum and are all printed on tea-stained Japanese gampi chine-colle.
