Mike Giant Modern Hieroglyphics Print & Original Artwork

On Monday 1xRUN brings in another legend of the art world for his first ever release with them, Mike Giant. He will be releasing a print titled Modern Hieroglyphics along with 10 pieces of original ink art as well.

"These designs fit within my “Modern Hieroglyphics” series. Last year I was studying a lot of Egyptian hieroglyphs, trying to decipher their meaning based simply on what they looked like. Then I started to look at classic American tattoo designs and corporate logos in the same way. I tried to observe them as static objects, without their current meaning. When I imagine 500 years in the future, I believe the people at that time will look at our logos and tattoo designs in much the same way that I look at Egyptian iconography. So, in a way, this series is my gift to the future." - Mike Giant

The print and all the original ink art goes on sale Monday at NOON EDT at
