Without some sort of authentication, I'm passing on it, and I'm a huge, huge, huge Invader freak. It doesn't even look like something of his. Even with authentication, I'd have to think it over. Fugly is right-on.

Assumption number 2: You are trying to be overtly trendy and look cool infront of an audience which is hindering your ability to realize the authenticity of this work. As one Invader fan to another, I'd suggest you pause, take a moment, and truly look at the piece because at the end of the day all of his work can be considered "fugly" from an individual or individuals who simply latch onto the latest trend and then subject the artist's work to high levels of undue criticism.

Incorrect. You can check the names if you desire. I dont care if it sells or not.

Then why do you care if we debate it's authenticity? All your posts are spamming this ebay auction, which is the first thing you posted upon joining. Must be a coincidence right?

No one is going to pay $1000 for a piece that looks like it could be an invader without knowing for sure. Those larger black tiles around it send up a red flag with me. I don't recall seeing borders made of different sized tile around any of his other pieces. Those border pieces just make it look bad. Since it's 'from the street', most serious invader collectors won't touch it. We'd rather support the artist than some dipshit who tries to make a quick buck scraping it off the wall.
