"The piece was created in late 2012 and took me about three weeks to complete. It is a psychedelic exploration of my recent drawings, but the piece itself was specifically made for the print edition. The piece that the print is based on was originally painted with acrylic gouache on hot pressed heavyweight paper. The red and baby blue color palette represents one of my favorite graffiti color combo’s for painting simple straight letters." - Dmote
