I think the canvas Angels look a bit better and do wish these looked more like the originals with the neon/less tagging. I also think he has many other pieces I would have preferred to see (Chief, etc). Still, I will likely go for Angels. Don't think Graffiti mover translates as well from canvas to paper.

This is one of the three Dolk images associated with the Fukushima plant disaster.
A reasonable interpretation of this image probably should have some consideration of this context.
This association makes the print popular among Japan collectors.
