Holding Hands (teal) is a signed lithograph print made by British graffiti artist Stik. Produced in 2020 the print shows two stick figures rendered in black and white. Using six thick black lines and two circles, Stik creates two figures that are captured holding hands. While the figures are connected, they appear to be on the verge of leaving one another as they are looking in opposite directions.
Holding Hands (teal) is one of five print variations in Stik’s Holding Hands collection. The prints in this collection are all inspired by a sculpture Stik made in collaboration with Hackney Council in September 2020. Stik installed a large sculpture of these two figures in Hoxton Square in order to remind people of the importance of interrelation and physical touch. The reminder was important as the sculpture was erected in the midst of the Covid-19 pandemic when people were being ordered to socially distance themselves from one another.
Discussing the pose captured in the print, Stik explains ‘they are holding hands in a sign of universal love and solidarity’. The sculpture and the prints act as a symbol of hope for life after the pandemic. Stik endeavoured to deliver a copy of the print to every household in the area as a gift, reflecting the artist’s love for Hackney and care for the community.

My first experience working with My Art Broker was in selling an artwork. The artwork was collected on a Monday, a deal quickly agreed and the funds were in my account by Thursday. I found the whole experience to be completely stress free and painless. Pleasingly this is the first time I have made a sale and not incurred any fees or charges. The price agreed...
