German artist Hendrik Beikirch ECB, recently released his first ever limited edition artwork. After canvases and monumental murals worldwide, the artist decided to turn to a different medium.
His focus on elderly people of the street, strangers with unknown stories, continues with this release. Four-colored silk screen print with a limited print run of 100 copies, is entitled “Astor And Broadway”, and it’s based on a sketch that Beikirch did at the corner of Astor and Broadway in New York in 2012. The portrait is showing an older man, with a facial expression that shows gloom and cheer at the same time. This kind of portrait is a typical example of ECB’s work, and it is a great choice for his first print release.
The screen print is promoted and sold via Hinz&Kunzt, a street paper sold by homeless people in Hamburg, with all proceeds from the sale to the people in Hamburg who are in need.
