Six New Art Prints by Usugrow

Upper Playground just launched six beautiful new art prints by Japanese pen and ink master Usugrow.  They are all 12″ x 16.5″, have editions of 150, and are $200 each.  Every print is embossed, lettered, stamped, signed, and numbered by hand.  I am very tempted, how about you?  Visit UpperPlaygroundStore.com.

  1. nice prints, price as hell though

  2. very nice prints/art/skills-upper playground should extinct from the face of the earth though.

  3. love, love, love Usugrow but that price point is just too high for right now.

  4. i luv the dog print but… $200. wow. great prints though.

  5. Fuck twenty ducks, that’s some skill.

  6. Awesome pieces, but $200 is some cash….

  7. I do with I had 1k to throw down on these, the inkwork is just flawless. Last three are particuarly beautiful.

    These arent screenprints are they?

  8. Dude has some serious skills. but 2 bills a little out of my budget right now.

  9. Ive always liked this dudes work…. but cmon yo.. 2 hundred is way overpriced.. fuck you upper playground!

  10. Yo Anville: yeah, nowhere does it say how they were printed. WTF. Upper Playground’s lack of any kind of attention to detail shines through again!

    I guess we should assume they’re giclees…stamp it/sign it/emboss it all you want, $200 for a 12 x 16 inkjet print (one color, nonetheless) is nuts. Price the whole set at $200 and then you’ d have something.

    Usugrow is amazing with a pen. Always beautiful work.

  11. I co-sign what Smith said… As a set, It would be worth $200… maybe even $300, I would seriously consider.

  12. Upper Playground will be failiping these things on Ebay in a few months. Mark my words.

  13. I’d do $30-50 a piece on these… max.

  14. But who knows, they could be meticulous, amazing screenprints. Then the price isn’t too terrible. I’m totally shocked they’re just described as “print on paper.” I mean, no shit, they’re printed on paper. For $200 each they should say how.

  15. I loves me some Usugrow but gat damn $200!

    I might pay $90 for one. Ef Hue Upper Playground! I’m bitter at them since that Flores debacle.

  16. if they sell all of them they make $180000 – seem a bit much for that

  17. Usugrow should have released these on his own, the price may have been cheaper. In ’06 I saw prints like these from him (same size, stamped, signed, numbered & screen-printed) in a little culture shop in L.A. for $45 a piece and their were 12 different prints. The quality on those back in ’06 were amazing…hopefully these are similar quality wise.

  18. Save your money for that Horkey print. It’s coming VERY SOON.

  19. I could see if they were larger prints, but for these tiny ones, $200 is a real slap in the face! Especially with the bad economy, what a shame.

  20. HMM I GUESS WE CAN’T HAVE OPINIONS HERE. BOO

  21. The last sentence was a little offensive.

  22. IT’S LIKE WHEN CELEBRITIES ARE PHUCKEN RUDE.ARTISTS SHOULD EMBRACE THEIR FANS.HE THINKS HE IS THE NEXT PUSHEAD.NO WAY IN HELL COULD HE BE HIM.

  23. @ BEEFLOAF

    I think you are under the assumption that Usugrow is the one that set the prices, when in actuality, if Upper PlayGround produced these and is involved in the project…they probably set the prices.

    Also, you caps lock is on…and has been on for a few months.

  24. *your

  25. UP has been pushing the same image for like months now and they still can’t sell out lol. Get a hint! When Usugrow did a show at UP, they were charging the same price for these images and they didn’t sell out, now they’re charging the same thing again but in a different fashion.

    Frauds!
