Re: I Said I'm Happy (What More Do You Want) 09 Eelus

Choice. Seriously? I'm particularly interested in gender relations. To me it's all about the framing and message for this one. In the days of portraits a woman was only as good as the public's 'portrait' of her. Shockingly almost nothing has changed. Things nowadays may be even worse. Woman are tol...

Re: The Visitor 08 Eelus

i kinda like the simplicity of the print itself, but i have to agree, i need someone to explain what's going on there... I thought that the 'Visitor' in question was related to the women in the print having her period. I often find my wife, squatting down in the back yard, baying at the full moon w...

Re: The Visitor 08 Eelus

back to Eelus... I think that he has come a LONG way since Chewbarber (I just used this example in another thread a few days ago): Blah: http://www.expressobeans.com/remote/14770:73373.jpg Awesome: http://www.expressobeans.com/remote/14770:120901.jpg http://www.expressobeans.com/remote/14770:113123...

Re: The Visitor 08 Eelus

Yah Data is great. And that frame is simply incredible I would have to agree. That said, I just felt that the response to the grafter image has had too much to do with its being named art of the week. To be honest I was dying for the wood piece but simply couldn't afford it. However, I would bet to...

Re: The Visitor 08 Eelus

Fair enough. I'm glad that other guys are starting to get attention here though. I just was confused why there was a rabid frenzy for the grafter image while all other street artists went unnoticed. Good to see Fake on the front page. Wasn't trying to start a competition, I was more asking for opin...

Re: The Visitor 08 Eelus

Can anyone tell me why a great print like this gets ZERO love and the Grafter splash print has over 150 replies. That's a great print and all but this image is choice. Why does it have to be a competition? I dig Eelus, but I don't see why you have to say, "how come Grafter is getting so much attent...

Re: Splash 08 Grafter

Everyone is acting like I think its a fatal flaw. All I'm saying is that I think it's not perfect. I know feet are incredibly hard to do in stencils so maybe this was the best out of every option. What's frustrating is that the blue and red ones are more visually interesting and better executed but ...

Re: Splash 08 Grafter

Where is her right leg? I love this piece despite that obvious flaw. Your obvious flaw is not obvious to me. I see two legs. Is that how you would shade a leg if you were doing this piece? Mind you I have never done any stenciling so I have no idea if that's the only way it can be done but to me it...

Re: Splash 08 Grafter

Where is her right leg? I love this piece despite that obvious flaw. That said, there are other street artists out there that I believe are as 'self-made' and talented as Grafter is. In particular I wish that Eelus, Dolk, or even Pobel would get a little more recognition on this board. I missed out ...

He will most definitely be one to follow. I see big big big things for him in 09 and beyond.
