Ben Eine is having an opening today at the White Walls Gallery in San Francisco. He has one print available with the opening. It's a 5 color, hand-pulled screen print, 26x26 inches. It's an edition of 100 selling for $600.00.

That price isn't ridiculous or anything.

I'd hate to imagine what the price would be if it included the ENTIRE alphabet.

He never puts in the "W" when he does his alphabet prints/art. He doesn't like the proportion of the letter.

I read he likes the symmetry and balance 25 letters gives him,and he chose to drop the W because it is the biggest letter.

600$ for a print versus 1500 starting price for a canvas?

Seems a bit skewed .....

...oh, and Obama's got an Eine OG, given to him by David Cameron

The $1500 canvases sold out fast. In fact more than half the show sold out before the opening.

The alphabet is overrated.

Really like the SF font! (bottom left)
Like the WILD in the Circus font also.
I do not like all of those creases on the canvas. That's just sloppy, and they ain't cheap!

My thoughts exactly. Why couldn't they stretch the canvas properly. Those creases look tacky.
