Purchase Revolution in our Time Silkscreen Print by Shepard Fairey- OBEY Hand-Pulled 5-Color on Cream Speckletone Fine Art Paper Limited Edition Artwork Obey Pop Culture Artist. 2020 Signed & Numbered Limited Edition of 500 Artwork Size 18x24 Silkscreen Print "Oct 1 is the 70th anniversary of Communist Party rule in China and the Chinese government is planning an extravaganza of choreographed contentment in the mainland while the people of Hong Kong will hit the streets in an effort to secure their rights. I’ve long believed that protests in the streets are an essential tool for meaningful change because the passion, courage, and visceral force of the participants in a mass protest send a powerful message that they are fully committed to their cause! Ed Nachtrieb photographed many incredible moments of the 1989 Tiananmen Square protests. I’m honored to collaborate with Ed on a set of two images based on his documentation 30 years ago, especially because pro-democracy and human-rights protesters are in the streets of Hong Kong right now! This image “Long Live The People” will be released as a print soon… more details to come. Check out Ed Nachtrieb’s thoughts on the 1989 Tiananmen Square protests." -Shepard Fairey- OBEY "After the People’s Liberation Army was sent in to suppress what is now called the “pro-democracy movement” on June 4, 1989, there was a liberalization of economic rules and policies. China then experienced a remarkable economic transformation. The idea: if people could get rich, they wouldn’t care so much about their freedoms. I think that’s a miscalculation. In Hong Kong today, ideas championed in 1989 have reappeared in a “Revolution of Our Time” in spite of the campaign to erase such “counter-revolutionary” thoughts from history. My images used in these prints are from energetic and optimistic moments of the pro-democracy movement. Victory was in the air. Progress seemed inevitable to those with arms outstretched and smiles beaming from their faces. Shepard’s work reflects their hopes and aspirations. The same ones that fortified those protesters in 1989 are now fuel for the passionate idealists on the streets today." -Edward Nachtrieb Shepard Fairey's "Revolution in Our Time" silkscreen print is a compelling narrative connecting past and present struggles for democracy and human rights. This piece, released in 2020, commemorates the 70th anniversary of Communist Party rule in China, juxtaposing the state's celebrations with the unyielding spirit of protest in Hong Kong. Fairey's collaboration with photographer Ed Nachtrieb is particularly significant, as it draws on images captured during the 1989 Tiananmen Square protests, thereby linking historical acts of resistance to contemporary movements. The artwork is a hand-pulled, 5-color print on cream speckletone fine art paper. With its size of 18x24 inches, the piece commands attention, demanding consideration not just as a visual expression but as a statement of solidarity. The edition is limited to 550 signed and numbered prints, making each a tangible artifact of political artistry. Fairey's design is charged with symbols of peace and resilience, as evidenced by the dove and the raised hand, iconic gestures of defiance and hope. Fairey is known for his stance that street protests are a crucial mechanism for social change, and this belief is visually encoded in the print. His art is not passive; it is an active participant in the dialogue around civil liberties and the collective voice of the people. "Revolution in Our Time" does more than commemorate an event; it propels the message of protest into the future, encouraging a reflection on the nature of authority and the power of the people's will. This limited edition print captures the essence of Shepard Fairey's approach to art as a form of rebellion and communication. It speaks to a universal yearning for freedom and justice, transcending borders and historical moments to unite viewers in a common cause. The work stands as a beacon to civic engagement's enduring relevance and visual art's impact in mobilizing and inspiring change within societies.

SP Special Proof 2020 Signed Marked "SP" Limited Edition of 15 Artwork Size 11.4x12 White Circle Shape On Hand Made Coffee Stained Coffee Filter Paper. SP is like an Artist Proof AP. Navigating the realms of pop culture and traditional Japanese art, Takashi Murakami once again reaffirms his genius through the creation of "Coffee Zen Enso- White SP". This mesmerizing piece, crafted in 2020, serves as a harmonious blend of street art and pop art, juxtaposed against the serenity of traditional Zen aesthetics. Murakami, known for pushing the boundaries of contemporary art, ingeniously utilizes a simple coffee filter as his canvas, a medium both unexpected and deeply evocative. The black circle, known as 'Enso' in Zen Buddhism, epitomizes enlightenment, elegance, and the universe. In this artwork, the bold, black silkscreened Enso stands in striking contrast against the brown hues of the coffee-stained filter. It's a stark representation, exuding a profound simplicity, capturing a moment of purity, freedom, and clarity. This simplicity, however, doesn’t detract from the piece's complexity. The natural patterns and discolorations from the coffee give depth to the backdrop, making each print in this limited edition truly unique. Marked with "SP," which is synonymous with an Artist Proof, it holds a special significance as it signifies a print pulled specially for the artist's own collection. With only 15 pieces ever crafted, its rarity is unquestionable. Each 11.4x12 artwork has been signed by Murakami, providing authentication of its origin. The very essence of the "Coffee Zen Enso- White SP" resonates with the continuous exploration and innovation that Murakami embodies. Through the fusion of disparate elements, he creates a universe where pop culture seamlessly melds with the profound depths of traditional symbolism.

Purchase Cacophony Hand-Painted Multiple Archival Pigment Print on 3 Tiers of Laser-Cut Acrylic Panel ready to hang by Eddie Colla Graffiti Street Artist Modern Pop Art. 2020 Signed & Numbered Limited Edition of 25 Laser Cut Acrylic Artwork Size 18x18 "The Goldfish Girl was created almost a decade ago. I often revisit it, and she has been the longest continuing character I've created. I often write backstories for these characters to help me create the pieces, but they are generally never shared with the viewer. The Goldfish Girl was born in mainland China and raised mostly by a single father. Her mother passed away when she was 18 months old from cancer. She was often very ill as a child and was eventually diagnosed with a compromised immune system disorder, although a precise diagnosis was never given. This is the reason for always wearing the mask and gloves. Her father bred Goldfish for a living and taught her that trade as a kid. They worked side by side and rarely had visitors because of her condition. Often being extremely ill and also losing her mother made her childhood difficult. As most children do, she tried to find a reason for her misfortune, a reason for why all this had happened to her and her father. Eventually, she believed that her illness and her mother's cancer were punishment by nature. A curse for toying with nature by breeding goldfish. Eventually, her father passed away as well. Needing to make a living and also to taunt fate she illegally immigrated to Hong Kong. There is a famous goldfish market in Mong Kok on Tung Choi street, but it's commonly called goldfish street. With a compromised immune system the most dangerous thing to her was other people. As a challenge to fate, she moved to one of the most densely populated cities in the world. She got a stall on Tung Choi Street. This is her challenge, to taunt fate and win, becoming the master of her own fate. These images are vignettes of her life in Hong Kong. I've never given the character a name. Sometimes she is pictured with a boombox because music becomes a central companion to her mostly solitary life. In the piece Cacophony I wanted her to literally be surrounded by the city. In some way, I think I tried to create a character that embodied a lot of traits I aspire to. To remind me.” - Eddie Colla

Artistic Elements and Cultural Influence Murakami's work on the Doraemon Exhibition plate is an archival pigment print that brings street pop art's vibrancy to the ceramic medium.

Murakami's Unique Style and the Art World Murakami's approach often involves a dialogue between different cultural elements, combining traditional Japanese artistic techniques with the mass appeal of anime and manga. His method is rooted in the "Superflat" concept, which he coined to describe the cultural commentary embedded in his artworks. This style is evident in the Doraemon Exhibition plate, where the flattened pictorial plane and the juxtaposition of characters suggest a deeper narrative on the influence of pop culture in our lives. Pop Art, Street Art, and Their Confluence By incorporating elements of street pop art and graffiti artwork into his ceramic plate design, Murakami contributes to the ongoing conversation about the validity and importance of pop culture in the art world. He elevates the perception of animated characters by placing them within the context of 'high art,' challenging preconceived notions about the value and meaning of pop and street art. Collectibility and Murakami's Global Impact The Doraemon Exhibition plate is a piece of art and a collectible item that has garnered attention from art collectors and enthusiasts worldwide. Murakami's ability to traverse the line between art and commodity has made his works highly sought after, and pieces like the Doraemon plate continue to shape the landscape of contemporary art collecting.
