Indeed and the new one that looks about finished is even better. I'd love to see a print of these released by Fairey sometime soon

These were on display at the Pulse Art fair in Miami last week. Impressive in person, but yeah need a lot of wall space.

And who doesn't want a great print depicting rape, murder, torture and vomiting? Perfect for the Christmas season!

Lots of respect for Cleon, but that is a wall I'd rather visit than live with.

I think my avatar would love to have this Cleon hanging in his Manhattan penthouse. Just vibe out and listen to some Huey Lewis.
