The Keep is a new limited edition screen print from Shanghai-based German artist and IdleBeats' co-founder Gregor Koerting. It's the 7th piece of his art print series named "Real Big City”.

Words from the artist

The Keep is one of the pieces that refers to a real place in Shanghai. The main police department of Shanghai is located on Wuning Lu/Wuding Lu. The sharp edges and straight lines of its dismal appearance erected among low community compounds makes it to one of the most impressive buildings of the city to me.

The Keep,

Plough through blind haze
with my razor sharp concrete bones
Real Big City a fever face
Mirrored in my skin of glass
Deep down in the hysterical maze
Dwells a viscid coexsistence
A desperate race
under my distinctive watch
