With the completion of his "When You Wish Upon a Star" trilogy and his first solo exhibition show coming to the states, I wanted to dedicate a thread to all things Roamcouch related. The man's breathtaking meticulous stencil work made me a fan and lead me to EB.

Updates for his upcoming show in NY.

Wow- I love that last one. Outstanding. His screen prints are way overpriced, but he is certainly talented.

I think they are fairly priced for the work he puts into them, plus not that big of an edition.

Those look incredible. I would love to see the full piece of the ones with the animals. If only I could make it to NYC for the show...

the cost of making each of these prints is a lot. Its about 8x the normal print.

If he was actually stenciling or even hand-finishing the screen prints (or giclees) he sells that would be one thing (and way too much work- and probably cost more), but for the sizing, all the numerous variant colorways he produces, I think he is overpriced. His Rainbow Inc. was the right price but all his prints since then have been too much. It's all relative though and understand if some people do want to pay that much becuase his work is really nice regardless.

I understand that with some of his screen prints he can claim they are 15 colors, but the reality is there are 5 or 6 teeny tiny stars that are the size of a dot. Each color is certainly unique, and i don't think every print needs to be saturated in colors, but his prices are excessive.

Talented nonetheless and that bomber boy is great- what will the cost/edition be on that?

Each bomber will be$1,000 and just a canvas.

Not sure on the free print edition for the show.

The free prints are giclees. Where are you getting pricing info on the canvases?
