he probly missed the moral of that documentary. what's funny is no matter how much crap he's been releasing lately, I see vendors sell a bunch of unlicensed copies of MBW's work (the iconic ones) on the streets of SOHO. Almost made me want to ask the person selling it if she was moving a ton of those copies.

It will be interesting to see how this turns out for flippers.

Cover Girl was an incredibly well done print. Extremely impressive in the flesh.

Sorry for the hate - just had to let it out.

never seen such ignorance on behalf of an artist. hope this is his last print. horrible print, greedy as drymount pricing. i hope we see this run of prints sit unsold for years. he should have stuck to photography/videography.

I really don't know what the studio is thinking. Actually I think they are not thinking and that's the problem.

But I have to say so many of MBW's earlier images remain images that I will always think are very clever and I love looking at them and the quality is strong.

The clever really seems to have run out the door though.

Will it ever return? Hmmmmmm....

This has to be a feel out test by MBW just to see how far he can push it, I really hope people send him a message and skip this purchase. In general I like his prints but this bend you over and f**k you stuff needs to come to an end. Don't be such a greedy bastard and just make art that we can enjoy and afford too! In a perfect world I know.....

$1500 ... :shock:

Well, it looks like I need to dust off my knee pads, buy some quality chap stick and find a highly trafficked alley in the city to afford this bad boy.

I couldn't agree more. MBW has seriously jumped the shark. :?
