Obey Print Release part duex –

I’m overwhelmed with the amount of incredible artwork coming out of the Obey camp in the past two weeks.  For the third week in a row pop-artist Shepard Fairey is releaseing a killer series of music inspired prints that are a much larger format that his usual style. 

Over the past week he has released 6 massive images that have sold out in “record” time (no pun intended, really), getting one has been strictly luck I’m sure.  This weeks release of three images is no less impressive and in my opinion probably the best thus far.   I would be bummed personally if I bought any of the prints within the last two weeks since these trump those in style and impact.

These prints are expensive, around $500 per print and come in a limited edition of 50 (signed and hand numbered).  I wish I had the scratch to keep up and grab some each week, but looks like the wife has kyboshed any such impulsive urges until I get the remainder of my prints framed.  A bedroom of print tubes I’m sure is the reasoning, and I can’t argue my way out of that.

If you like this print check out the others at www.obeygiant.com the release times of his prints are always random (I’ve found anywhere between  2:00 and 5:00 EST to be the most common), remember, Obey is on the West Coast time.  The release date for these prints is todayMay 5th, good luck!

Obey Records Print Release today 4/28

As you know we here at Hi Fi Central are avid art collectors, specifically in music related prints.  Pop propaganda artist Shepard Fairey is realeasing a very cool series of prints today at a random time.  The prints are larger than his usual weekly releases and the price tag as well, $500 per print, yikes!  Granted, these prints are limited to only an edition size of 40 and are very striking.  There are three different prints being offered, but the one featured is my favorite.

Obey Giant is located on the West Coast so if you live on the East Coast release times usually happen any where from 2:00 to 5:00 EST, but again, it’s always random so you never know when they will be available for sale. 

Fairey’s prints often sell out in minutes, even the $500 ones, so if you want them you got to be pro-active and keep hitting that refresh button and then strike!  Good luck and let us know if you get one.

UPDATE: ALL THREE IMAGES ARE SOLD OUT!!

Print Mafia – Flogging Molly Print

I was checking out the local listings for upcoming shows and noticed that the February 20th Flogging Molly show at Northern Lights (Clifton Park, NY) is officially sold out.  It’s a bummer since I had thoughts of checking them out and clearly waited too long to make up my mind.

I have not seen Flogging Molly since I moved back from Boston and always felt they put on a good quality show.  Although they are not everyone’s cup of tea since they are more mellow and exemplify a contemporary blend of Celtic, rock, indie, and a wee bit of old school punk thrown in for good measure.  The band really can’t be catagorized as any one genre, but again, it’s also not for everyone.

I liked the print that the dynamic duo over at Print Mafia did for the band for a 2007 gig in Nashville.  The print is almost sold out and I think only two remain available on line; it sells for $100 and is signed and numbered.

If you want to purchase this print or want to check out some other very cool creations that Print Mafia seems to magically create on a weekly basis, click here.  The print is located in their SHOP under RARE POSTERS.  Enjoy!

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!!!!!

Social Distortion Print – Dan Stiles

I’m digging the new Social Distortion print from Portland, Oregon artist Dan Stiles released today.  The print is in a limited run of 200 and comes signed and numbered by Stiles.

The print sells for a mere $25!   So, it’s a bargain for the budding or experienced art collector; priced right for a terrible economy no doubt!

You can check out this print and a few more that Dan just released on his website including prints of bands The New Pornographers, Rodrigo Y Gabriela, Sleepy Sun, Modest Mouse, Major Laser, and Pavement.

I picked up a Midlake print a month back and was very happy with my purchase, check Dan’s stuff out by clicking here.

Let us know what you think and if you grab one!

Print o’ the week #6: Artist HERO

This week’s print pick is by Buffalo, NY artist Hero.  I thought this print was very cool for an AC Newman (front man for the band The New Pornographers) show in Ithaca, NY in 2009.

The print is limited to only 110 and is signed and numbered, again, it is a mere $25! What a bargain for a fantastic work of art.  The image measures 16 x 20, so it’s a nice size for framing.

You can check out more of Hero’s prints and artwork by clicking his site here.

Let us know what you think, please!

Print o’ the week #4 – Powerhouse Factories : Revho print

Thought that this was a cool print from artists Powerhouse Factories.  This print they did for a Reverend Horton Heat show in 2006.  Only 2 prints remain out of an edition of 75, so if you want one you’d better hustle.  The print costs about $50, so not bad at all and is 24 x 18.

Powerhouse Factories is more than just a group of artists making gig posters, they seem to also have a strong graphic design service as well.

Regardless, check them out and the many cool prints they offer, sadly most are sold out.  For the Reverend Horton Heat print and many more, click here.

print o’ the week #3 – dirk fowler

No pun intented, but this print really caught my “eye” and I felt it was worth mention on the blog for my “print o’ the week” pick.  Dirk Fowler and his wife Carol are based out of Lubbock, Texas where they work as graphic designers; on the side they produce some mighty fine concert prints like this one for the band Deer Tick. 

I like what these two are doing with their designs and you will notice that they never seem to stick to one type of pattern, so they really create some vibrant and electric designs that really grab your eye.  Good luck getting any of their Wilco posters, apparently they are quite the item on their site.

The featured print is an edition size of 50 and they only have 20 avialable to sell, so for a mere $25.00 you can grab yerself’ one!

Check out this print and some other great art these guys are creating by clicking here.  And don’t forget to tell us which one is your favorite!

Joe Strummer Print Release today!

If you read my  April 2010 post  entitled “The Art of The Music Business” you will appreciate today’s release of a print by artist Shepard Fairey (of Obey fame).  The print will be released at a random time (my experience has been between exactly 2:00 and 4:00 EST), so get on early and keep hitting the refresh button on your browser.

UPDATE!!!  It went up for sale at 1:00 EST so get it if you can!

Often his prints sell out in minutes so you have a good chance of NOT getting one, it is a very frustrating process, however to Fairey’s credit he does make his prints available at very cheap prices, the Strummer print is $70 and is in an edition size of 450 (signed and numbered by Fairey).

As with most of Shepard Fairey’s prints they skyrocket in value nearly the next day so they are a worthwhile investment and if you really appreciate art, not bad to hang on your walls if you get them professionally framed.  Joe Strummer was the cornerstone the British band The  Clash and this print does a nice job of paying homage to the rock icon.  Hat’s off to you Shepard, nice one!

If you are interested in seeing this print and more of Shepard Fairey’s art, click here and good luck on getting one!
