ARTmostfierce highly recommends start collecting Hank Willis Thomas work NOW!!!
The moment and the prices are NOW!!!
Please go to his site and take a look at the Branded series and also read his personal statement. The MoMA got it and already purchased some his work. His book 'Pitch Blackness' will be released by Aperture Foundation and it is also a must have.

His work looks at race, class, and history through advertising, focusing predominantly on the use of the African American male body in advertisements in an exploration of the "familiar." The work is not only important but, also is a reflection of the current times we live in.

I think either one of these images has a quite strong iconic potential and you should let the Credit Cards take a stroll before you go on and splurge on drinks, food and momentary sustained fabulousness during the Labor Day weekend. Look at it this way...The photos will be there when you get back from the holiday ...the hungover might linger on because you just wasted money !

So take a real Glamorous Break, do the Math and do a savvy investment. Get both prints!

Hurry before prices go up!

Have a great Labor Day Holiday Weekend!!!

Update as Sept. 3, 2008
Folks, the price already went up to $1,200.00
Still haven't got one?
