Continuous Thunder Limited Edition Archival Pigment Prints on 310gsm Fine Art Paper by Malt Graffiti Street Artist Modern Pop Art. "The story behind the piece is searching to fill that empty space inside when losing someone very close to you. As the saying goes time heals all wounds, until then it's "Continuous Thunder." I always tend to work in a series of color combos, mostly in 3's. This series being one of them.The idea starts the way most of my pieces come about. Laying down the background and staring for a while. Then figuring out where I want the flow of the piece to go. With this piece it's kind of a "X" pattern. I wanted to do a hopscotch kinda deal with the maroons and pinks over the greys and the greys over the maroons and pinks. Along with the prints and original painting there are two smaller complimentary pieces available with this RUN." - Malt
