GATS Collaborates with 1xRun to release “Truck Trinity”

Wednesday, November 20th, 2013


Bay Area based graffiti artist GATS, just released their first ever letter pressed print through 1xRun out of Detroit.

The print drops today at…

– 12 x 18 Inches
– 3-Color Letterpress Print
– 250gsm Fine Art Paper
– Limited Edition of 40
– Metallic Gold and Silver


“This piece evolved out of little mockup sketches that I was doing to plan out compositions on actually box trucks. I liked the simplicity and energy of the rough sketches more than a realistic technical drawing of a truck. I guess the beauty of illegal work is that it forces you to simplify and express an idea in the shortest amount of time possible.

The concept of taking a modern graffiti medium and combining it with mid-15th Century technology appeals to me because it pays homage to the history of typography. The press liberated literature from monasteries the way that graffiti liberated artwork from private collections. Aesthetically, nothing compares to being able to feel the artwork physically indented into the paper.” – GATS

This RUN is signed, numbered and comes with a Certificate of Authenticity from GATS and 1xRUN.
