This is a Fender Stratocaster Guitar hand painted in acrylic paint by Graffiti artist, Crash. With a burst of neon green and red-orange, easily seen is this fresh approach to street art with a lively combination of lettering and design. What I like about this piece is the idea of executing such a well known style of art on an iconic musical instrument. Fun Fact: The relationship between Crash and Fender was introduced by legendary singer Eric Clapton. He, a fan of street art, had asked Crash to create a custom painted Fender in 2000, which he used on tour.
