Print Mafia – Liz Phair Limited Edition Print

The genius duo that make up Print Mafia are at it again and have released a very cool gig poster for indie princess Liz Phair.  I’ve seen Liz Phair several times when I lived in Boston and she always put on a good show; she never seems to hit the Albany, NY area which is a bummer.

I’ve highlighted prints by Print Mafia in past posts and always love the range of images and styles they use in their creations.  This print is signed and numbered, however they don’t post the specific edition size which would be helpful; it costs a mere $20!!!!! 

You can check out this print and others by clicking here; and don’t forget to tell us what you think!

GWAR Print – Print Mafia

I know I have a print o’ the week thing going and I don’t want to spoil my weekly releases to the HiFi readers, but I couldn’t resist posting this awesome GWAR poster that the artists at Print Mafia did for the band’s gig in Nashville, TN in 2006.

The print is just so GWAR: piss on everthing sacred and worship your true gods you low life dirtbags!  If you have never seen GWAR do yourself a favor and go, quite possibly one of the most original acts out there touring and just worth the $20 in so many ways.  Don’t forget to wear crap clothing since fake blood and bodily fluids fly throughout the show on a pretty consistent basis, but it’s all part of the experience.

Man I love the stuff that Print Mafia produces! As you may have read in my past posts about Print Mafia, their designs are clever, brilliant, and just all around rad! This print is on sale for a mere $15 and is signed and numbered by the artists.  So, it is limited in its availibility and won’t be around for ever, so git’ yerself one proto!

Put this GWAR print in the appropriate place in your house and reflect on the “awesomeness”  of your own Print Mafia creation!  Hail GWAR!

If you do end up picking up this print or any others make sure you let Print Mafia where you learned about it, give us here at HiFi Central some cred damnit!

Tell us what you think of this print!

Print o’ the Week #1 – Artists: Print Mafia

I figured I would include a “Print O’ The Week”  post this summer since I have been riding the heels of my April post The Art of The Music Business; I’ve actually received quite a bit of emails about that post and thanks from our readers.

Print Mafia (out of Bowling Green, KY)  has released a few test prints on their website and this one really caught my eye; Hank Williams and KISS?  What absolute brilliance eh? Two iconic styles of music blended into one print, love it!

Print Mafia is offering several versions of these prints and since they are all “tests” no two are alike, so it’s a pretty great opportunity to snatch some great original art.  There are also some very cool Johnny Cash test prints as well. 

If you check them out, let us know what you think.  You can see these fantastic prints by clicking here.

Print Mafia – Ltd. Edition KISS Prints

Back in April I posted an article entitled The Art of The Music Business that looked at the cool side of underground and mainstream artists who create limited edition art for the music industry.

Print Mafia is made up of two artists out of Bowling Green, Kentucky who have been creating some very cool and affordable prints since 1997.  Obsessed with vintage images and retro Americana, Print Mafia often comes up with some very cool designs that appeal to broad spectrum of collectors.  Whether its vintage robots, Evel Knievel, KISS, Johnny Cash, Burt Reynolds, even KFC’s Colonel Sanders, they are incorporate the genre into their art prints. Their designs are nothing short of clever and creative. They normally produce limited runs of their prints (usually under 100) and offer them in a price range that is incredibly affordable, thus enabling a newbie or seasoned collector to obtain great art.

Print Mafia just released prints of all four members of the legendary music group KISS and they are very cool.  This run is limited to only 60 prints and right now they are offering all four prints (I would assume with matching numbers) at $90, a steal!  These are silkscreen prints(serigraphs) and are of very good quality, not cheezy flimsy poster prints.

With the newly announced KISS tour for the summer it is the perfect time for the KISS collector or KISS fan to grab some very cool wall art.
