About this Art
This RUN contains 6 Grey Hand-Embellished prints numbered randomly in the first 40 prints of the edition of 200 from New York City street artist gilf!'s debut print Empower Equality. Each print is uniquely hand-embellished by gilf! and will have slight color deviations.

"The fist is best known for the Black Power movement of the 1960s in America. While it represented unity within the race, it originates back to 1930s Germany. This symbol was first used by the Communist Party in Germany. It was a symbol that the party members would display to one another to show their unity against Hitler. The current tertiary rainbow colors represent all walks of life and my belief that all people should be given equal rights. It is time that all people are treated equally in this country- not just the people in power. Hence the title, Empower Equality. Each embellishment takes about 40 minutes. The concept took about 2 weeks to tweak to perfection. Getting it printed took about 3 weeks. I've hand drawn the word EVOLVE from left to right, and right to left. EVOLVE spelled backwards is EVLOVE- many people will think I'm writing LOVE over and over again. There are multiple color ways of this marker embellishment- I estimate that EVOLVE is written around 800 times per print. " - gilf!

This RUN comes signed, numbered and with a Certificate of Authenticity from gilf! and 1xRUN

Ann Lewis (American, 1981) is best known for her politically charged and often uncommissioned take overs of public space. As a multidisciplinary activist artist using painting, installation, and participatory performance she explores themes related to American identity, power structures, and justice. The work often incorporates repetition through graphic elements, and a limited color palette while conveying messages around social justice issues such as gentrification, women’s rights, and police brutality. In early 2014 the artist garnered national media attention when she installed an oversized police tape banner that read ‘GENTRIFICATION IN PROGRESS’ at the former graffiti mecca 5 Pointz in Queens, New York. Her work was exhibited at the White House in the fall of 2015 during the Obama Administration's reflection on mass incarceration and has been acquired by the New York Historical Society Museum and the US Library of Congress. Most recently she has been named a 2018 Artist-in-Residence at the Santa Fe Art Institute Residency for Equal Justice.
