‘Dog With Bones’ is the latest in a series of sold out print editions by British artist SHOK-1.
The original wall piece was painted in London earlier in 2015 , at a street location not far from the Tate Modern museum. It features a version of the iconic Keith Haring dog from the 80's rendered in the artist’s signature X-ray style. It was painted entirely in freehand spraypaint using no masking tape or stencils, a unique process pioneered by the artist. It is an evolution of techniques refined over 30 years of working in the medium.
Somewhere between pastiche and parody, it is intended as a kind of diagnosis of the original artwork and Haring in general. SHOK-1 elaborates, “I feel that Haring's relevance to his own time period is analogous to the relationship between graffiti and street art in current times." The work also has some humour to it, a playful and unexpected take on an animal X-ray.
