Seeds of Change, 2020

RANKIN
Regular price £200.00

World renowned fashion photographer Rankin has joined forces with Mentor Black Business & Darklight Art to raise funds for Black entrepreneurs by releasing a limited edition print, “Seeds of Change” [2020].  Seeds of Change is an Epson Inkjet Print on Semi-Matte Epson Paper 150 GSM.

“Seeds of Change is based on the important political moment we find ourselves in. The Black Lives Matter protests are sparking vital changes in a society that has turned a blind eye to systematic disenfranchisement within politics, policing, business, culture and all areas of life. I hope the work reflects the fire in the belly of protestors and allies fighting for change, and also the seeds of potential, ready to be set free.”

 - RANKIN

Seeds of Change comes with a certificate of authenticity; signed, dated and stamped by the artist. 100% of this sale will go to support Mentor Black Business.


NB. Framed mock-up [pictured] is based on the classic framing option without window mount. To request a mount [also pictured], please get in touch at info@darklight-art.com.

What even is a Giclée print?


Giclée [pronounced G-clay], from the French “to squirt or spray” ;0 is a digital printing process that sprays microscopic dots of pigment-based ink onto high-quality art paper or canvas. It’s often the choice of illustrators and fine artists due to the bright pigments & ability to reproduce highly-saturated colours. Giclées offer a greater range of paper textures, weights & whites with superior archival quality too. Lab simulations of the ageing process of art show fade & colour shift resistance of up to 200 years in ideal conditions. Fancy that.


At Darklight Art, we sell works by visual artists and photographers as both giclées and C-type prints. So what’s the difference? C-types use light sensitive paper and LED/laser light printers, whereas giclée inkjet printing is a dry process, where ink is sprayed directly onto paper in a series of dots, known as a half-tone pattern.

ART IS FOR EVERYONE 👅 ART IS FOR EVERYONE 👅

Eco packaging pledge


We’ve worked hard to find the most environmentally friendly packaging on the market. Our print boxes and poster tubes are made from recycled cardboard and are fully recyclable. The tube ends are made from recycled plastic and are also recyclable. 

Our tissue paper is recycled, eco-friendly and vegan. It's PH neutral and approximately 35% of the electrics used to make it is produced from renewable energy.

For the final touch, our tape is paper based and water activated, so no need for any nasty adhesives or plastics. It’s made from - you guessed it - 100% recycled content and printed with soy ink. 

Not a bad start.
