"Happiness is Expensive is part of a theme we are developing, keeping our hard, fast-edged style and mixing with portraiture.

Throughout the ages, portraits are used to reflect the subject but also the time period that the subject inhabits, with secret messages, religious affiliations, and iconography woven into the piece. We want to take this forward and use the main figurative element to reflect these messages into a powerful piece. We want to bridge the gap between street art and traditional art by using a mixture of Acrylic, Spraypaint, stencils, wheat pastes and various screen print inks in our work layering these into luxurious prints and originals." - Prefab77 "Happiness Is Expensive - Grey & Pink" is a captivating limited edition screen print by Prefab77, a renowned artist in graffiti street art and modern pop art.

Through "Happiness Is Expensive - Grey & Pink," Prefab77 delves into the tradition of portraiture, reimagining it with a modern twist.

In this particular piece, the central figure is a female character dressed in the classic "skinhead" style, which was popularized in the 1960s and 1970s. This style often included elements such as close-cropped hair or shaved heads, tight jeans or trousers, and heavy boots. The image also incorporates various symbols and elements that reflect the punk and street art influences that are signature to Prefab77's work. As a silkscreen print, "Skingirl II HPM" is created by applying layers of ink through a fine mesh screen, resulting in a bold and vibrant image. This technique allows for a high degree of detail and color saturation, which can be seen in the intricate patterns and shading within the artwork.
