I usually also buy the weaker prints of Fairey because I love his messages.
But I couldn´t get this beautiful print because of people who pick and choose. This might not be fair but it´s reality.

I buy for the images, his messages feel hypocritical and phoney to me.

What is the message/protest in this image? Is that crude oil on the flower?

In secret, he's a misogynistic, xenophobic oil magnate.

Well, quickly looking at products for sale on his website - he's got variety of products that are all petrochem based (PU, Nylon, etc). What about all the freight/logistics resources consumed to ship this stuff.

The VOC's from spray paint and screen printing certainly get overlooked - but everyone loves the smell of those prints right out of the tube.

on the other side, he could likely sell them for quite a bit more. At least his prices are somewhat reasonable.

I wonder how many times he has signed his name on prints. :pint:
