About this Art
This piece of original art comes ready to hang.
"This painting was actually displayed during my artist residency at The Cotton Candy Machine (CCM). On the opening night this Basquiat painting along with a portrait of Nelson Mandela and Snoop Dogg were in storage as they weren't part of my Hip Hop Royalty collection that was on display. Around 2 hours into the opening the 3 paintings were stolen from the storage room by a group of guys who came to the event. Sean Leonard, Co-owner of CCM ran out of the space and found one guy waiting by a dumpster to be picked up with the giant Basquiat painting. After a mad chase between Leonard and the thief the painting was recovered and the guy was arrested and charged with grand larceny." - Amar Stewart
This RUN comes signed by Amar Stewart and with an Original Artwork Letter of Provenance from 1xRUN.
Amar Stewart is a New York based artist from London, England. His influences lie somewhere between, Music and City Life.
Growing up in a small town in the Midlands he began drawing at a young age typically sketching super heros in his scrap book. It was only in his 20's when he moved to London that he saw a whole new world. The city being filled with so much energy and creativity fed his mind with ideas.
The next 8 years would be a learning experience. Experimenting with concepts, painting techniques, travelling and finding out what path he wanted to go down.
Amar has exhibited his art internationally in cities such as New York, Los Angeles, London, Hong Kong and Melbourne. His work has been showcased alongside artists Banksy, Mode2, Adam Neate and Mr. Brainwash.
