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: After releasing 4 previous cities in his City Series edition Above decided to make the Golden city of San Francisco his 5th release. This photo was taken in 2004 during Above’s then 14 city wide USA TOUR. Growing up in California Above has a long history with the colorful city of San Francisco. We feel that this colorful arrow truck, special guest, and backdrop of the golden gate bridge really captures the vibrant energy and charm that makes the city of San Francisco so unique. We hope you feel the same!
