"This piece evolved out of little mockup sketches that I was doing to plan out compositions on actually box trucks. I liked the simplicity and energy of the rough sketches more than a realistic technical drawing of a truck. I guess the beauty of illegal work is that it forces you to simplify and express an idea in the shortest amount of time possible. 

The concept of taking a modern graffiti medium and combining it with mid-15th Century technology appeals to me because it pays homage to the history of typography. The press liberated literature from monasteries the way that graffiti liberated artwork from private collections. Aesthetically, nothing compares to being able to feel the artwork physically indented into the paper.” - GATS

The original artwork was drawn 11”x17” with a Sharpie and then transferred without vectoring in order to maintain the unique line quality.

Last month (May 2013) Brett Flanigan and Cannon Dill, two Bay Area based artists, drove across the United States on a spontaneous mural tour. Flanigan and Dill created a series of nine impromptu collaborative pieces.

Dill’s intricate black and white illustration styles contrasted beautifully with Flanigan’s bold non-contoured steams of color. The works were themed around nature (e.g. animals, trees) and at times grew into such abstraction that they could only be referred to as the Wild Style of Character Graffiti.

They painted murals in Denver, Kansas City, Minneapolis, Chicago, Detroit and Brooklyn, with a grand finale collaboration in New Orleans with MRSA (Nola local) and GATS.

Make sure to check out Brett Flanigan’s upcoming art show with Joshua Mays at Old Crow Tattoo and Gallery in Oakland.  Opening reception June 7th, 2013 (First Friday).
