An all-timer for being underrated. I thought it was interesting when I first saw the jpg online, so I decided to buy it. Then I absolutely loved it the first time I saw it in person, and I think even more highly of it whenever I look at it. It's so ugly it's freakin' beautiful. Seriously.

I'm a big Primus fan and love their posters. Out of curiosity...is this one you appreciate/love and will keep in a flat file? Or appreciate/love and hang in the house? The details and colors look amazing but I guess I couldn't personally see myself hanging this up.

I rotate prints on my pegboard wall in the basement, so this print alternates between being in the flat file and being on the wall. It's in my top 5 of Primus posters, and I've got dozens of Primus posters.

If it had a movie title over it, the Mondolloyds would be dribbling over it

Agreed. Both this and the Blue variant look great in person. Great print to go with a great show!

This poster is so vibrant and beautiful in person. I remember it took awhile to sell out when it was released. Had it released after Durieux's Jaws, people would have gobbled this up sooner.

Negativity tends to go nowhere so maybe just keep it to "the most underrated prints". Just sayin :wink:
We can bash stuff all day long but in the end art is subjective.

To me this is a modern surrealist masterpiece on the highest level. It should be canonized by now and in the Louvre.

Agreed times ten. I own the og of this, and it's one of the two pieces I would never, ever sell. Just such a wonderfully bizarre composition
