  1. This thread rules, so entertaining.

  2. Classic.
    Mm good question. One artist where you love every out put
    for me it’s faile but those guys are in another league.

    Oh well some love it and some hate it. Isn’t that a core emotional reaction that art should prevoke ?

  3. This print sold out so fast. It was the fastest ever. Bestest print in the world.

    You can have mine for $300.

  4. I dont understand why everyone has to piss on each other or on an artist. I dont really like this print but who cares? who am I and who are you? If you dont like it, dont buy it. you dont need to like everything fairey has done. Thats the whole point. maybe hes trying to reach a group of people who have never even heard of him before? What does it matter to anyone else but him?

  5. Dear Admin,

    Thanks for not censoring the criticism. Reading this thread totally made my Friday morning. Love him or hate him Fairey is controversial and that’ll keep him popular. Fairey is sort of like the Glenn Beck of printmaking.

    I’ve collected his stuff in the early days around 1997, when prints were $18, they were limited to 100, 150. To order, you would have to write your choices and then 2 alternative prints for each choice. Then you would mail it to San Diego with a check, and then wait to see what they mailed back.

    I don’t know what they do now, but the shipping tube would arrive all tagged up with different giant stamps,and a packet of free giant stickers would be included. Most of the times the prints weren’t even rolled in protective paper, just bubble wrap on the empty space of the tube.

    I got rid of most my prints after the whole plagiarism controversy but I still keep a couple. Definitely the way of ordering Giant prints are different now then it was 10 years ago.

    To get a more fuller picture of Fairey as an artist check out the NPR interviews and other interviews he participated in. Good or great artists easily define their intentions and subtle purposeful details of their works, ie Takashi Murakami, Jeff Koons, Andy Warhol, etc..
    It would be interesting to know whats Fairey’s interpretation of this Spider Lily (haha I’m trying not to be bias either way).

  6. Wow lots of panties in a wad here. I guess it’s true that bitches all go on the rag at the same time! If you don’t like it buy it. Every artist will evolve over time especially as they age. Fact of life.

  7. This print sold out in under 10 minutes… I know as I was C4C like a mofo and picked one up as soon as they dropped….

    Anyone who’s talking about picking up one 30 minutes into the sale is straight up wrong. False. Just plain wrong and full of it… Unless they have no idea when the print went up, in which case they’re just talking out of there ass…

    … and yes, EB is currently down 🙁

  8. Tony I’m not 100% percent sure what C4C is. Please explain to a newbie. I also got a print but it was more through a gut feeling that they were up. Thanks

  9. WTF I got refunded. A day later? How is that possible?

  10. +1, i just got refunded too…&%#$@*&^%@*&!!!!!

  11. refunded…..oversold????
    not surprising….another joyous obey transaction.
