Montana Gold Spray Paint on a hand brushed Acrylic base with hand applied splashes of Acrylic colour.
Grafter is an anonymous street artist based in London since 2006. He paints murals on prominent but unloved public walls using a combination of stencils, spray paints and acrylics. Through these interventions in public space, he aims to provide an unexpected distraction to those who encounter them, offering temporary reprieve from the stresses of modern life. Grafter also produces commercial work that has been displayed in numerous galleries, and has held sold-out shows internationally. He first gained substantial recognition for his 2008 work Splash.
As with that acclaimed earlier work, Bomb It first appeared on a doorway in the streets of London before being released as a series of limited edition prints. While the stencilled boy is consistent throughout the entire print run, the explosion of colours is hand-painted with thick acrylics and is unique to each edition. The freeform burst of colour speaks to the exhilaration of creative expression. Due to health issues, he has not produced a new release since 2016, but remains a prominent feature at auction houses and galleries worldwide.
