  1. Crap

  2. Love the theme/idea, but the image falls flat. The roses feel REALLY out of place to me.

  3. this is by far the best fairey in the past 3 years.

  4. FIRST!

    who are these children!?!

  5. Secondly – This makes Dan’s work above super shine bright !!
    Looks up at Dans and then down !

    I do like the background, the grade is nice but have an issue with that rose and butterfly, especially the color and brightness.

    Still not bad – I will swerve on this as my folder does not need a mid level Fairey – I have enough.

  6. In for the flip!

    E

  7. since when did he start charging $10 more for his screenprints? oooh that shep! [shakes fist]

  8. [shakes fist as well, but just for the heckuvit]

  9. @faireyforever. seriously best print you have seen in 3 years? if you are all about kids with guns, his Duality of Humanity prints are so much better then this.

  10. Now Shepard is trying to cut down on silly harmless childhood fun? I use to love to make rubber band guns and ride my BMX and terrorize adults by shooting them in the back or ass. Shep has gotten really dull and lost his youth really fast

  11. The original photo is dope.

    The more i look at this print makes me not want it could have been better he cut out to much and look at the kids feet! WTF

  12. RE: Daddy Wellfare. It’s a screen print from a Martha Cooper photo. Have to agree with “ME” on this one. The photo is great and you don’t really get the point that the weapons were made from scrap wood and things found in the street.

  13. Maybe this time he’s asked for permission to use the photo!

  14. I HAVE NOT YET DECIDED WHETHER OR NOT I WILL PURCHASE THIS PRINT.

  15. Source photo (I think):

  16. The print isn’t bad. The only thing that disturbs me is the size of the kid in the upper right. Not only is he smaller compared to other, he also has no feet.

  17. This print is really tired. I know for damn sur it will be flipped and flipped big. Shep is like eminem he has the name attached but the product is not up too par

  18. It’s up for sale.

  19. got this pig.

  20. So Shepard is now under the representation of Jeffrey Deitch. Looks like these investments are paying off.

  21. Is there such a thing as overexposure? I mean yeah we are all happy for Sheps success but this is way overboard. All artists might as well just give up and let him rule the art world. Little warhol
