Due to sizing, this RUN does not come with a framing option.
"When I paint on the street I like to have fun. I'm always trying new ideas out that turn into more ideas. In this painting I wanted to have two drastic different fill in styles. So the top half is a classic fill of mine and in the bottom half I play with the idea of different color chrome effects. It was a fun piece to paint in the heart of San Francisco.
This piece is all part of my artistic vocabulary. This particular one says apex and I was painting in the super burner style, but I was really trying to push the ideas of color and style." - Apexer
