The Original Tools Of Criminal Mischief print series began with The Cans as part of a three-print series created as companion pieces to Roger Gastman’s limited-edition book, The Tools of Criminal Mischief.
The 24-by-36-inch prints feature vintage spraypaint cans from Gastman’s collection, which was also featured in MOCA’s Art in the Streets
exhibition. For the landmark exhibition Gastman carefully selected the cans for each print, which includes coveted brands such as Krylon, Rustoleum and Red Devil as well as off-brands with colors such as Silver-Skate Aluminum and Baa Baa Black.
"I designed these three posters right after Art in The Streets. I saw the attention that the cans were getting in the show and how everyone wanted to take a photo in front of them, so I figured why not. This is my favorite series of The Cans prints. At 24x36 they really make a nice impact wherever they are hung." - Roger Gastman
