Los Angeles artist Ryan McCann returns to 1xRUN just in time for Thanksgiving. So as you sit down to watch the big Macy's Day Parade this year be sure give thanks to your favorite artists and don't let this one float away...
"This piece is #3 in an ongoing series know as the “Death to . . .” series. When there is an artist that I admire and respect I find my self studying their body of work. I will follow their career and basically just be a fan of what they do. On occasion, there have been three so far, I will get a very specific image of the artist in his last moments. This image came to me as soon as I read the article that announced Kaws’ balloon for the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. I first burnt the image into the wood with a blowtorch, stained the wood, then painted the rest with oil and acrylic. " - Ryan McCann
This RUN comes signed, numbered and with a Certificate of Authenticity from Ryan McCann and 1xRUN.
