Iconoclast Editions is pleased to announce the much anticipated release of the new Soup Can print by Shepard Fairey. This is the second of four color variations from the series of Fairey's interpretation of Warhol's iconic soup can images. The final two images will be released later this summer. For more details: iconoclasteditions.com

Shepard Fairey first gained notoriety by translating pop culture imagery into guerilla propaganda campaigns that quickly became global phenomena, most prominently with his ubiquitous "Andre the Giant has a Posse" images. Fairey’s recent work consists of complex, multi-layered portraits of counter-cultural revolutionary figures combined with politically-charged propaganda style imagery. Fairey's image of Barack Obama propelled him toward widespread international acclaim when the stylized portrait of the presidential candidate with the word “HOPE” became the most recognizable image of the 2008 elections. Fairey's work is included in the permanent collections at the Smithsonian’s National Portrait Gallery, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, the Museum of Modern Art in New York, and the Victoria and Albert Museum in London. Fairey is currently the subject of a major traveling museum survey, Shepard Fairey: Supply and Demand.

...now $950...

Doesn't he release several prints a week in editions of 450 for $55 a piece? Although they appear to each sell out, I don't know who is buying them.

ruben said...

It will reach up to $2,500.00 like the other one did.
I had no idea that they were hiking up the price.

These are global sales,plus Shepard is very popular right now and his work is on highly demand.

'...we have very few remaining of this particular print (at $950?).' However there are many more available a prices above and beyond!

What a scam!

And when we run out of the signed and numbered edition, 1/200 - 200/200, we will offer signed AP's until...

Everybody is trying to capitalize and bank on their biggest sellers.

I am not a bit surprised.I know somebody will be selling it on Ebay or Phillips the minute they get one for a lot more!
