Right Spiral by Apexer
1xRun: Tell us a little bit about this piece, is the original still for sale?
Apexer: This was a indoor mural painted for a show in San Francisco in 2013. It was a secret little piece that I really liked and not that many people got to see. I really enjoyed painting this one with all of the different patterns inside the fillin’ as well, I enjoyed the shape of the piece, thus the name of the print run. So the original is not for sale, however, I do have original artwork for sale that are available from White Walls gallery here in San Francisco.
