Pacific Northwest street artist Klutch just released a new print. Unfortunately, it was under less than ideal conditions. Here is the info from Wooster Collective (a street art blog well worth your time):
f you’ve been following the stencil scene for the last few years, then you know doubt have heard about the Klutch, who lives and paints in the Pacific Northwest.
On June 30th Klutch had a heart attack and and only now is starting to get his strength back. But the experience set him back $35000 in hospital bills as, like a lot of artists, he didn’t have any health insurance. To start to pay some of the bills back, Klutch has put up a print for sale. Here’s the info:
18″ x 24″
Edition of 50
Signed and numbered
Available at www.klutch.org on August 23, 2007 at 8:00 AM (PST)
$9 USD for US shipping
$15 USD for UK shipping

Back in April I did a benefit art show for my friend, Nick Bittakis from Diesel Fuel Prints, who had shattered his kneecap while skating at Burnside. He was touched by the gesture and to show his appreciation he did an art print for me. It came just in time, on June 30th I suffered a heart attack and the next day I had surgery to unblock 3 arteries. I was very lucky and am now on the path to recovery, but I also now have $35,000 in hospital bills and no insurance. The proceeds from this print will help me pay rent and eat while I get my strength back.
