This publication is the result of a book-residency of 14 days Craig Atkinson did at Knust/Extrapool. It’s part of Art Prison, an ongoing project in which an artist gets invited to come and make a stencilprinted book at Knust/Extrapool.‘Grab The Uranium’ is a collection of drawings which create something of a (possibly) factual, dark-ish narrative.
The book is about stripy tops, heads on sticks, steps, chaotic happenings and almost real events. It is stencilprinted in multiple colours and it is bound with the pamphlet stitch.
