Always a good reminder from time to time. The hate is strong here, but KR doesn't need EB for his art to fly off his store. It's nothing new. Not many Italians around here anyway. Can't even think of one.

Curious how there's not a single copy on eBay even a couple of days after the sale. :eh:

It doesn't seem like KRs stuff gets sold on ebay a lot. For as many prints as he's released there aren't many for sale on there. I bought one of these and it will be going on the wall. I know its getting a lot of hate, but I actually really like it.

The EB snubbing correlated to the absence of flip is a bit revealing about where most flippers hang. Would have grabbed a large had it featured hand finishing. 500€ has pretty much been his starting price point for HF in the past. Not anymore apparently. :?

I have never heard of this guy, until this thread. I went and looked at his works, simlar to Banksy, JBoy, Tabby all use silouette style. I do like the Obey collab Snoopy house they did.

except for the fact its all done with clip art on a computer and printed digitally unless he has some random CMYK screen prints, i bet the dude cant even color separate his own art, , honestly i really don't get his recycled art that has no feeling, its seems like its always a cash grab. as far as the snubbing comment i collect and own tons of art that won't flip because i really like the artist, i jus think KR is a joke

Huh? What are you talking about? OGs are hand/spray painted.

we gets it u like KR.... its jus my opinion not everyone has to enjoy his work, if he was sellin his art for like $50 i wouldn't even blink an eye, the fact that he supposedly sells out large print runs instantly at $500 or more a pop and i dont know a single person that likes or owns his fudge is what make me question him thats all . . .

Luls. :lol:
Actually, I left your opinion out of the quote and only kept the factual part, because I specifically had no intention to debate opinions on his work and totally respect and get where the criticism comes from. Get over it. You said it's a fact that it's all done with clip art made on the computer, I just mentionned he paints. More like factual than opiniated. It's not like I said everyone should enjoy what he does anyway.. sheesh.. :roll: You could have said, well at least he paints or I still don't believe this guy ever painted anything in his life or whatever, would have been fine, but instead you come back to give us some more of the same opinion. As you said, we gets it you don't like KR... :roll: And who gives a fudge really?

I like his stuff and do own a few pieces. And the guy has over 8700 followers on instagram, so there are obviously some people that enjoy his art and i have no problem believing that he can sell out 250 prints. There are a lot of art buyers that dont hang out on EB. And like tranito said, the guy paints a lot of stuff so saying that it's all clipart done on a computer is completely incorrect.
