Description

The ‘Concrete Jungle’ screen print series was inspired by lockdown walks spent finding beauty in the endless layers of concrete architecture around South London. Patterns created by windows, staircases and walkways create rhythm throughout the pieces, emulating the sprawling urban structures that rise above the skyline and criss-cross their way through the city. Illustrations of flora and fauna weave among the cityscape in an imagined world where the tower blocks are their canopy.

The featured buildings can be found in and around Stockwell, Oval and Brixton in South London.

‘Concrete Jungle II’ features illustrations of tropical birds – hornbill and toucan – rising above the rooftops of South London.

Each piece was hand screen printed by Melissa North in her Brixton studio. Printed onto luxurious Bockingford fine art paper, the artworks are all signed and numbered by the artist.

All photos and illustrations used throughout the series are the artist’s own.
