JPS – Conker the World : Behind the scenes

We are delighted to release JPS latest limited-edition hand-finished screen-print  ‘Conker the World’.

Stencil artist JPS first painted this piece in an abandoned factory in Germany, 2016 and most recently created a full colour version in Norway. The image depicts a young boy and girl playing the traditional game of ‘Conkers’. The Conker, a seed of the horse chestnut tree, is threaded onto a piece of string, each player strikes each other’s conker until one breaks. The strongest conker will win.

With JPS poetic play on words one of the conkers is replaced by the globe. JPS’s clever switch changes the composition of the piece. We all have it in us to conquer anything we put our minds to, lets dream big and conquer the world!

This positive and playful piece comes in four editions. The main edition of 60 is synonymous with the street piece and the bow in the girls hair is white. The Rose, Silver and Gold editions bring an extra touch of sparkle to the piece with glitter added to her bow. These truly unique editions are extremely limited at only 15 per colourway.

‘Conker the World’ is getting released on Wednesday, 31st May 2017, at 15:00 GMT, 16:00 CET and 11:00 EDT.

About the Artist
In 2009, JPS was on a downward spiral until a visit to the Banksy exhibit in Bristol turned his life around. The 37-year-old street artist from Weston-super-Mare had an addiction to drugs and alcohol, and was living rough. Inspired by Banksy, JPS has developed his own style creating playful street art.

 

Finally a big thank you to our good friends at AtelierJI for their help with the project!
