  1. +2

  2. I got a bag of pennies ready.

  3. It has to be because he’s such an established popular New York artist. He can put any price on anything and his fans will pay it.

  4. so to all you struggling artists out there let this be a lesson… stop trying to spend time being creative and coming up with original ideas or concepts, just take some bubbly headed skull and cross bones and put it on the head of pop culture cartoon characters…

    then later you can sell a series of 10 prints of uninspiring boring shapes and colors for millions.

  5. i am gonna assume that none of the money from these prints is going to the illustrator who created sponge bob

    who needs original ideas when you’ve got pop culture.

    who can draw the pirate turtle? you too can be an artist with your art hanging in museums!

  6. reading these comments I’m finding it hard to believe anyone here is either not familiar wit,h or ignorant to, the work of KAWS, his history and influence in street art, street fashion, vinyl collectibles and fine art.

    Sure the prints are ridiculously expensive, but this man has more than paid his dues for years on end and has the respect of the world’s finest pop artists and collectors of fine art. KAWS is a master of his craft and to complain about the price of his prints is like complaining about the price of a Ferrari 458 over a Toyota Corolla.

  7. The man is selling like few others at the moment, not surprised that his prints sell out at any price. They are downright affordable and accessible compared to most of his output.

    This is an editioned work, not a one off, so my guess is there is some licensing involved with Sponge-Bob characters as well.

  8. Ridiculous. I could have painted that.
