Entitled Spirograph_32, the collaborative edition features white or black Coventry Rag paper in editions of 50, as well as a limited number of unique monoprints. “It’s a contradiction, this meditative, peaceful design that became really raw and chaotic through the use of spray paint. It’s a way of revisiting my past in an entirely different way,” said REVOK to Louis Buhl and Co. of his Spirographs artwork.
