Razor Gun Limited Edition 5-Color Hand-Pulled Silkscreen Print on 130lbs Mohawk Vellum Fine Art Paper by Maximilian Wiedemann Graffiti Street Artist Modern Pop Art. "Looking at the current media coverage and shocking violence that has spread around the world, I felt it was time to release an anti-gun/crime piece. In the wider sense and anti-violence statement. Don't pull the trigger! As you see in the detail, the trigger is the razor, making it impossible or painful to shoot. It's a fine little detail in the gun that turns the meaning of weapons around. All you need is love. This design and coloring have exclusively been done for 1XRUN. This Idea has been shown first in New York in 2011 in the Vanity Unfair Show - I felt it has more relevance than ever these days." - Maximilian Wiedemann
