"Night Time Manila Yellow" is a visually arresting silkscreen print by the artist Dalek, also known as James Marshall, showcasing his unique perspective on street pop art and graffiti artwork. This hand-pulled 14-color print on French Manila Yellow Kraft cardstock paper is a testament to Dalek's intricate and labor-intensive process. The limited edition, consisting of only 15 signed and numbered prints, measures 18x24 inches, making it a rare collector's item. Dalek is recognized for his Space Monkey character, which has become synonymous with his name. This hybrid of a monkey and an alien character allows Dalek to dissect human emotion's complexities and societal norms' absurdities. In "Night Time Manila Yellow," the Space Monkey is depicted amidst a labyrinth of geometric shapes and vibrant colors, creating a hypnotic sense of depth and movement. The artwork reflects Dalek's background in graffiti and formal art education, bridging the gap between street culture and fine art. The color scheme of "Night Time Manila Yellow" is evocative of the neon-lit urban landscapes, reminiscent of the nocturnal scenes of Manila. The vibrant yellows, deep blues, and pops of pink and green evoke a feeling of the city at night, alive and pulsing with energy. The Space Monkey, often seen as Dalek's alter ego, navigates this complex environment, a commentary perhaps on the quest for identity and belonging in a fast-paced, ever-changing world. This piece is more than just a visual spectacle; it's a narrative on paper, a story of exploration, and a dialogue with the viewer. Dalek's work, including this print, is celebrated for its ability to engage with themes of pop culture, technology, and the human experience, all while maintaining a connection to the roots of street art and graffiti. "Night Time Manila Yellow" is a shining example of contemporary street pop art, encapsulating the dynamism and innovation of a genre that continues to evolve and inspire.
