Prole

The name Prole comes from the word 'Proletariat' that features heavily in the novel '1984' . The proles in that year could have established a better world if they revolted but they never needed to rebel against the system because all the proles cared about were films, football, beer, and the lottery, which were all provided to them by the state, rather like modern times. If only Orwell could have known how right on the mark he was!

For Prole, printing and stencil work are much the same bedfellows, you make up an image with solid colours forced through an open mesh for printing and you do the same but using spraypaint and holes cut in card. " I'm a fully trained screen printer (large format, traditional hand, and textile). Art was always a part time hobby , until I lost my job at the end of 2008 due to the global down turn. The chance arose to do what I did and loved full time."

Prole has exhibited at many urban / graffiti art shows including the Red Museum Osaka and the Bunkamura Gallery, Tokyo both in Japan 2009. He then returned to the UK for 'The Lock Up' in London.
