‘Very X’ 55 x 38cm - Edition 70
Seven colour hand pulled silkscreen
on Somerset Velvet White 300gsm
Fresh from hitting up the infamous Bowery wall in NYC (pictured) Ms. Hayuk found time to complete
another great print with us. It's the classic native American folk art shot through a neon new-rave cannon
employs a satisfying combination of layered translucent inks.
‘Watch Your Back’ 60 x 44cm - Edition 75
9 colour screen print on a hand sprayed background.
Arches 88 300gsm paper.
A lot of people complain we don't make enough prints of dogs in hipster hats - so maybe this'll go some way
to redress the balance. Paul has been painting these eyes for a while now, let's hope he uses the proceeds
from this print to get a decent therapist to tell him what the hell they mean.
In other news we just released some awesome hand finished Beautiful Bird prints by SHOK-1. Check the sidebar...
A hand X-ray with an extra finger subtly symbolising the beauty of difference. Shok's original wall painting of this
image caused quite a stir. It then became famous when a News of the World reader drew a big silver cock on it.
The artist rendered the painting for this version using just a single spraycan and one marker pen. Yep.
Technically it's something of a tour de force - part-print, part-painting it emits a luminous glow much like
the interior light of an Old Master.
Photos don't do it justice and neither will a clip frame from Ikea.
‘X-Rainbow (Difference)’ 63 x 53cm - Edition 80
Silkscreen on Somerset Black 250gsm
Individually spray painted by the artist.
A manifesto carved from swearwords and neon, this is by GOLDPEG,
but she’s not putting her name to it. “I’m not the first to use these words and if you
relate to them you can claim them, the sentiment isn’t a finite resource” she says.
Peg originally made a bunch of these as posters to service the London squatting scene
where they were pasted up, turned into placards, and sometimes confiscated by police.
She agreed to make an edition for POW only on condition “we make this an
open print run as cheap as possible, so it doesn't just get condemned to
resales on ebay or hid away for safe keeping”
So here it is - unsigned, unbranded, unnumbered, printed on paper from a workers co-op.

This is 'CUTS' - and you're unlikely to find a better print about fiscal downsizing
anywhere else in the world this week.
