Two brilliant print releases today, both of which I want, neither of which my pockets has money to cover :o(

The amazingly short lived street piece by D*Face:

This got painted over pretty much the day after it went up, as the ad agency next door represented some of the people dissed on it. Spineless really, not like they got up and did it themselves!

Anyway, it's been turned into a print called "What Wars are For". . . and it seems like nowadays wars exist as good fodder for street artists with a touch of writers block. To be honest it is getting a bit old hat, but I guess its pretty much been the case anyway, and some great images do crop up now and again that stick out from the dross . . . this is definitely one of them!

An edition of 75, priced at £150 each, and quite marvelously they are only available if collected in person at the StolenSpace group opening show tonight, hopefully meaning only true fans (or die hard scalpers) should get their mitts on it. In fact, who am I kidding. Expect at least 30% of these puppies on Ebay in the next few days at silly mark up's!

And then a complete surprise to me, Eine has obviously been busy in the studio as well as on walls as of late, a completely new letter style from him, made into two lush new prints. Whilst you may look on screen and think "hmmmpffh, what a load of pants" Eine's screen prints are a the nicest hand finished piece of gloriousness I have witnessed. Truly have to be seen to be believed.

Just not sure about the dodgy title!

Elton - Black and White, x 150 of each colour, all signed and numbered by the artist. £150 each.
And it will be the best £150 you can ever spend on a screen print, trust me!
