  1. eh, these are weak. for 600 bucks, i’d say that qualifies for really weak. hate on! dont do reseach! it’s for nerds!

  2. I have said it before. Shep is a nice guy and I think that he is getting caught up in the whole business side of his art. Back in the day Banksy used to give his prints away to friends and strangers and now he demands high prices on all his stuff. If shep really cared about the people he would have this set as a open edition. He has proved that he can sell out limited prints every week. I know the women here are going to hate on me but it seems that he got weak after his wife got involved with swindle and studio number one. Sometimes you have to put your foot down.

  3. Too rich for my blood.


  4. Personally, I find that Shep’s style does not appeal to me anymore. And it’s not because he has grown to be immensely popular. It’s more because of his prices now, and he seems to have lost something that he used to have. Perhaps it was a bit of anonymity or less smugness. Also, the cost of some of his prints, particularly the pattern ones, is way too high for what they look like. Many artists get inspiration from other people, but his whole style depends on reproduced images. I still like seeing some of his prints now and then because of the style, but I still haven’t found anything I really want.

    However, the prices of his artwork never go down. If you really want something of his, you better it within seconds of it being released or you’ll have to pay more. I guess people don’t have to be in a rush to get his pieces and can wait a year or whatever, but be prepared to shell out some serious dough for the signed/numbered ones. Also, people shouldn’t be complaining about the economy and how much he sells prints for. It’s too much of a stretch.

  5. Wow

    went and had look out of well… should I or not ?
    Sold out at 3.20pm

  6. guys, you might as well go buy some original acrylic/oil original works rather than PRINTS, with the kind of money you need to pay for these.

    and i do stress PRINTS.

  7. Buy my unimaginative reproduced regurgitated images and like them. I’m shepard fairey, from the street to wall street, all the way to the bank bitches!

    I care about people but if I found a way to make some money off of “everyday people” then fuck ’em. PAY ME!

    Hey Horacia Hollywood and AffinityPress, if your lookin to liquidate, sell/trade, hit me up on expressobeans. INKBLOTS. Wouldnt mind getting my hands on a print or two of his. Id like to broaden my collection.

    otherwise just email me. inkblots_x66@yahoo.com

  9. Shep is a snooze fest. So many more deserving artists out there putting out high quality work that won’t give you a headache trying to order and wont rape your wallet. Put this dude to rest.

  10. AGREED Nick.

  11. Hey Horacia Hollywood and AffinityPress,
    If you DO decide to sell your Shepard prints to Brian, remember his own words….

    Brian said, “I care about people but if I found a way to make some money off of “everyday people” then fuck ‘em. PAY ME!”

    So charge Brian $2500 for each Shepard print. LOL

  12. Why woud anyone want to put any of that sh!t up in their living room? Its more like basement art…no woman would allow that in her house….this art requires thumb tacks and me heading back to college….

    I think i have enough sheps in my collection to be over it now….the shark has been jumped 3 or 4 times now….the purchasing of shep art has now gotten easier cause i have withdrawn from the market.

    Happy purchasing everyone.

    PS i did pick up his beer mug for $12…thats a good deal.

  13. Haha! I would much rather trade for them then buy them. I shouldnt have typed that.

  14. actions speak louder the blogs!

  15. All you critics should relax and appreciate it for what it is: provocative images that make you think. That is what Shep wants you to do. So do your best to think without a thought as its goal. I think the colors are brilliant and the star and behind you are awesome images. I haven’t seen the star image in the archives. The Andre references are apropos. He was a hero of mine too on early morning wrestling in Mpls. in the 70’s.
