guess you don't believe in the value of the free market? Any item is only worth what people will pay. I gladly paid for this piece.

You should think about getting the gold Flash too then.. still at 100 pounds, very limited, it feels like a no brainer. I've yet to see it, but the hand applied gold paint as the flash effect just screams custom framing with paint on the mould like we saw for the Splash one.. just with a sparkling flashy pattern instead of the splashy one.. get that??.. fancy fudge..

This print has been around for a little while... I think that people finally are realizing how amazing the image is. Trying to compare the controversy/hype over MBW's work to the recent astonishment that people seem to be having with Grafter's Splash is a pretty ignorant thing to do...
1. A lot of excitement generated by MBW's work was caused by the possible Banksy tie in.
2. There are a lot of folk on EB are intrigued by Grafter's Splash who normally don't give two shits about street art (or MBW)... I think that this says a lot about Splash (MBW never had Art of the Week)
3. Grafter is an artist who started out small and is making a name for himself as his work is appreciated by many of the British street art fans... Whereas MBW sort of just bought his place in the art world; furthermore, most of the British street art fans wouldn't piss on MBW if he were on fire.

...and i actually like MBW's stuff

So, I just ordered it and received payment confirmation from paypal!

This year so far, I won the miss bugs giveaway paper version for "super heart falls from the art" and found a way to buy this.

Now for the real question, how do you hang, perserve, display a print like this on wood?
I don't know exactly how you need to preserve this....I don't think it needs much preservation, besides getting some dust on it it should be fine.

I plan on getting a couple simple wall mounts or whatever you may call them, and putting two at the base of the print, and just resting it up against the wall. It should be fine that way i imagine.
Pretty much what I thought. Maybe build an art shelf with a simple lip or a groove for board to fit in. Are they signed on the back or numbered?
I don't have mine in hand yet. However, kingofprussia sent me a link of some more up close pics of it. It shows it is signed in two spots on the back, and numbered as well. No signature or number on the front. here is the link, you have to be a member of phishposters to view though. http://www.phishposters.com/yabbse/inde ... 37850.2100

The wood edition does not have the edition number on it. You get a certificate of authenticity that will have your edition number on it.
My wood edition is signed on the back four times by Grafter and he listed the year as well.

Sorry, I missed that. It is numbered and signed actually eight times. I missed the detail on the darker part of the wood.
And...can't see the link since I'm not a Phish freak.

Is it against forum etiquette to repost the pics from that site on here? I won't do it if told otherwise.

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 on Eelus' recent POW release and have been slamming my head against a desk ever since.
