yesnomaybe_print was a fine art printmaking group formed on the City Lit ‘Year in Print: Stage 2’ Course 2018-19. Coming from a range of backgrounds including architecture, fine art, illustration, and marketing and communications, the group draws from individual personal projects to create site-specific collaborative works in a range of printmaking media.
From 09-21 July, the group exhibited at Golden Lane Community Centre and Westminster Art Reference Library. Golden Lane Estate is one of Britain’s most important post-war housing developments - Grade II listed, the Estate includes a tower block with a roof garden, community centre and allotments. Its primary colour scheme and post-war design is an inspiration to the printmakers who respond to both the architecture and landscape of the site.
In homage to Stanley Owen Green, the ‘Protein Man’ who spent many years protesting ‘less lust from less protein’ along Oxford Street, the group looks to an honourable tradition of public protest in a performative print project at a location that has now become the site of two major community campaigns. yesnomaybe_print celebrated fellow printer, Stanley Owen Green with drop-in workshops to make playful protest booklets, taking inspiration from the Protein Man’s original text.
