Dan Quintana Nova Archival Print by Dan Quintana
Purchase Nova Limited Edition Archival Pigment Print on 310gsm Museum Natural Fine Art Paper by Dan Quintana Graffiti Street Artist Modern Pop Art. "The piece did have a theme that was based around the title: Nova. In this case the planet earth, bright with all of its life shining LIKE a star in the universe destined to fall under the demise of mankind, inevitably leveling up into a supernova only to graduate with a stellar explosion. Boom. The painting came from a similar drawing titled “Destructo.” The idea came about from all of the man-kind self-destruction stories and allegories." - Dan Quintana
