CITY SERIES INFO: Artist Above has traveled year after year following his passion making street artworks in over 60+ cities in 45+ countries around the world. After some cold beers and a lot of discussion Above mentioned that he wanted to make a “CITY SERIES” of prints taken from photographs of pieces he had created in different cities from around the world. Above wanted to make the series very personal in ALWAYS HAND COLORING AND FINISHING EVERY PRINT! In addition Above wanted each new edition to be small ( 25 in each edition).
**( Above insisted we inform you the buyer that no 2- print are the same. Quoting Above ” I like to mix and match colors to make each person buying a print get their own unique colorway. Having said that prints you see in the photos are sample colors and your print will be similar but different, if that makes sense? “)
PRINT INFO: Having released 3 previous prints each from a different continent (PARIS/NEW YORK CITY/BUENOS AIRES) ABOVE decided to return to the Spanish city of MADRID as the topic of his 4th City series release. Above was in Madrid in the summer of 2009 during his European stencil tour. Above created this site specific stencil that works with and brings new perspectives to the slumping wire coming off the wall.
