U.K. artist Dale vN Marshall will be releasing next week an amazing new print in collaboration with Goldmark Atelier, a fine art print studio based in Uppingham that has been producing limited edition prints with some of the world’s leading artists for some time now.

‘Vacant Hero’ is a 22 layer silkscreen print in a main edition of 45 to £295 + shipping. There will also be a hand finished edition of 20 for £425 + shipping.

The prints will be available at 3pm (BST) on Thursday 18th May at www.goldmarkatelier.com/shop

‘Vacant Hero’ is based on one of Dale’s  canvas paintings that formed part of his most recent solo exhibition ‘I am not a child’ (Edinburgh, 2016). The exhibition was the culmination of a project in which Dale collaborated with local youngsters suffering with mental health issues.

Marshall’s career began over twenty-five years ago as a graffiti artist on the streets of Bath and Bristol, UK. Marshall would paint his own rendition of poetry which challenged the graffiti stereotype under the moniker ‘VERMIN’ or ‘Vn’. Marshall enjoyed this form of expressive freedom and youthful rebellion but it ultimately brought upon him the gritty consequences of street culture, which for Marshall led to drug use and psychotic episodes.
