Indeed and the new one that looks about finished is even better. I'd love to see a print of these released by Fairey sometime soon

Fly as hell, but way too much wall space required, and way too much money.

These were on display at the Pulse Art fair in Miami last week. Impressive in person, but yeah need a lot of wall space.

Lots of respect for Cleon, but that is a wall I'd rather visit than live with.

I think my avatar would love to have this Cleon hanging in his Manhattan penthouse. Just vibe out and listen to some Huey Lewis.
