PREFAB77 is proud to announce a Solo show at home in the North of England in the great Northern Fortress of York. Our good friends at the Art of Protest Gallery are hosting an exclusive body of originals on wood, canvass and metal and a selection of 5 x LIMITED runs of hand painted prints that are the most beautiful produced to date.
The opening night is VIP only, this Thursday 29th March

please respond to info@artofprotestgallery.com for a list of work available

Public opening from 30th March - 30th April 2018 - Big Party on April 13th at the Gallery at:
16 Little Stonegate, York, YO1 8AX

Prefab77 explores a fresh approach to his traditional ripped and torn, allegorical, rock and rebellion style, from artwork that reflects these current times of protest and dissent to just a plain satyrical and anarchic.

Was there only 6 prints available or did they remove the sold out ones?

When I first clicked on the link there were six prints available. I haven't seen the link published anywhere, I only got it when I asked for a listing of the works available at the upcoming show.

Yeah kinda bummed about that... I'm a huge prefab fan and am used to heavy hand finished all out screen prints... This to me for the price seems a bit like a half ass money grab... I guess since it's a small run the price ain't bad and I like the non float head images but I would've been all in if it was all screen printed

i really like native love... but yeah, for a run size that small... i'm used to more screens / HF on prefab stuff than a giclee.

Something about the Brass edition appeals to me. The price is steep, but this might be my first Prefab.

Yeah same here except I think I have a Prefab from a couple years ago. This, especially in brass, is really nice.

These are beautiful. I own several Prefab prints and can vouch that you won't be disappointed if you take the plunge.

I loved that brass but missed it. +1 reg though.

Prefab’s prints are a great example of how hard it is to tell the quality of a print from the jpeg. I have another print of his I decided to roll the dice on and was blown away with how much I liked the print in person. The different textures and inks gave the print depth that really “made” the print in my opinion. Looking at this one and applying what I’ve seen from his others, this is a must if you’re on the fence.

^^ Couldn't agree more.
