Purchase Happiness Is Expensive- Grey & Pink Limited Edition Hand-Embellished 6-Color Screen Prints on 300gsm Fabrino Rosapina Paper by Prefab77 Graffiti Street Artist Modern Pop Art.
"Happiness is Expensive is part of a theme we are developing, keeping our hard, fast-edged style and mixing with portraiture. We want to explore the iconography and the power of the female form in traditional art, music, and fashion. 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
