This is a limited edition of 10 original paintings based on a mural I painted in San Francisco. “Giant Pacific Octopus” was painted on the very last days of 2020 as part of the Box Shop Mural Program. The Box Shop is a creative center of sculpture building and the mural program is covering every surface with new murals. Read more about the program www.charlesgadeken.com/bs-box-shop-mural-project-1
At the Box Shop the octopus is living deep among the snags of bent metal and ocean freight containers of its urban environment, it recedes and advances with the tides of Hunter’s Point, and moves between the filtered light and darkness of the sea.
I made these 10 small paintings as reproductions of the mural. Each is different from the next and each is an original painting using the same latex paints that I used on the mural. The colors are bright and the paint is glossy, they are painted on high quality watercolor paper. 11×14″ in size. Each one is signed, titled, dated, and has the edition number on the back.
Available unframed or framed in a simple white wood frame. Shipping is included in the price.
