Amar Stewart Radiant Child Basquait Print Release Details

Amar Stewart joins the 1xRUN ranks today with the release of his first print with them Radiant Child, that also happens to be one of the most famous paintings in recent years. Along with the print 7 paintings will be on sale as well

You can read the whole story HERE but long story short 5 dickheads stole 2 of his paintings and Radiant Child was recovered but the other 2 remain missing.

"This painting was actually displayed during my artist residency at The Cotton Candy Machine (CCM). On the opening night this Basquiat painting along with a portrait of Nelson Mandela and Snoop Dogg were in storage as they weren't part of my Hip Hop Royalty collection that was on display. Around 2 hours into the opening the 3 paintings were stolen from the storage room by a group of guys who came to the event. Sean Leonard, Co-owner of CCM ran out of the space and found one guy waiting by a dumpster to be picked up with the giant Basquiat painting. After a mad chase between Leonard and the thief the painting was recovered and the guy was arrested and charged with grand larceny." - Amar Stewart
