I think its one off his best images overall even though its from a paint by numbers show.

I had it in cart and tried to check out and failed......TBH I was hemming and hawing over it for about 5 minutes.

Should have just broke down and got one....

Secondary hasn't been too kind to these large formats. Hoping to cop one for a G.

There has to be a funko seller who's wife does not want a picture of a child holding a grenade in their tiny apartment. Right?

One sold yesterday for $1105. SMH.

So the person made $30 to re-ship a tube.

I guess money is money.

The next print in the "Facing the Giant: Three Decades of Dissent" print series is "Proud Parents." Here's how co-curator Pedro Alonzo explains the work:⁠⠀
Motivated by his long-held interests in using art to encourage critical awareness and dissent, in this print the artist co-opts the aesthetic of currency and popular tropes of the middle class to render a dystopian view of the American family. Created during the second term of the George W. Bush presidency, this print questions the increasingly skewed national values of this country and the role of money in furthering that condition.⁠⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⁠⠀⁠⠀⠀⁠⠀
With a deliberately vintage design, a couple cradles a bomb as if their child. Their loving and optimistic display, however, is surrounded by verbal puns that undermine their position and future. The family unit is consumed by a government that sponsors a nonsensical American scene, interested in investing more in the military instead of education.⁠⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⁠⠀⁠⠀⠀⁠⠀
Proud Parents. Serigraph on Coventry Rag, 100% Cotton Custom Archival Paper with hand-deckled edges. 30 x 41 inches. Signed by Shepard Fairey. Numbered edition of 89. Comes with a certificate of authenticity. $900. Available Tuesday, August 6th @ 10 AM PDT at store.obeygiant.com/collections/prints. Max order: 1 per customer/household. *Orders are not guaranteed as demand is high and inventory is limited.* Multiple orders will be refunded. International customers are responsible for import fees due upon delivery.⁣ ALL SALES FINAL.

I like these colors and the diff color gradient than the original. I like it but not $900 like.
