Donk at J. Lindeberg, East London

Donk at J. Lindeberg, East London

Located in East London, the J. Lindeberg showroom is set to become host of a rotating series of murals by street artists. The first comes from Donk, who explores history and a sense of belonging  via his photographic, Xerox and colour wash wheatpaste. The image on the sidewall of the J.Lindeberg offices near Old Street depicts a giant Shire horse moving slowly forward whilst carrying a young boy on its back. The boy is in fact Donk’s son, who appears in many guises though out his work; here he represents the individual Londoner, as the shire horse represents London itself.
