I love the message in the email: "we're looking forward to helping you, but please keep in mind the overwhelming interest in these works. We are requesting you email a list of your top ten picks and we will do our best to supply you with a piece you love. Please let us know how many pieces you want. We cannot guarantee any work in particular will be available to you, but we will do our best to accommodate your preferences."
How do so many people have so much coin laying around?
Word of advise to those looking to land a piece from Shep. This was not the show to do it at. Tons of media/movie coming out, largest show for him ever. You can't really expect LSC to push you to the front of the line with one email can you? They have long list of long term clients, same with Shep and his people. The key is to plan ahead, buy from the galleries prior to the show you really want. The good thing with Shep is he does a lot of smaller varied shows. His Treason Show in WA a few months back had a lot of nice hpm woods etc... I got on the list there and still did not manage to get the piece I was looking for... - it happens to the best of us. I will say that after a conversation with the people at Treason they are great folk and I hope to purchase something from them in the future. - Back to Damaged, 200+ pieces, they probably had 2000+ preview requests.... the odds are not good for any of us, much less the first time buyers. As I said, try to find the smaller shows, you will have a much better chance.... 1/2 my shep collection has come from bottom feeding! lol.... the other half was really hard work... ec
ps. watch the upcoming Shep documentary on hulu... its really good! Go check out the Damaged show if you can, I am sure it will entertain.
I've done my PR for the day..... peace... ec
I only wanted the one piece (Andre retired stencil) but missed out ....
So, can we then agree that he is either one of the next big things, or already solidly established, or not on the decline as some suggested in the Next Big Thing thread?
This show got a pretty big write/preview in The NY Times.
He seems to be a cornerstone, with a proper museum show the next step.
Shepard probably has more sentences in the book of art history than any other urban/street artist discussed here, from the original 'Andre the Giant has a Posse' spreading through America virally in the early 90's, to his early use of e-commerce in art, to the Obey branding, to many issues with regards to fair use and copyright, to Obama Hope and the aftermath.
IMO, his 'Obama Hope' right now stands as the most significant artwork of the 21st century. In a world where the signal-to-noise ratio is exceptionally bad, this work cut through to popular consciousness like little else and brought a host of issues with it.
They updated between the preview and the general email. And as i can see there is new stuff (for eg the diptych HPM on wood or the stamps on paper), maybe people not paying the works so it's back in the list...
yes - they are updating. i saw a nice big HPM on the list now... but nothing to do with "availability ( sold / not sold)" because I paid my artwork already...and it is still on the list :-o
I don't see any updates in the catalog. Where are you guys seeing them?

willcleverly: Trying to work out what to do having paid a top 5 Bristol Urban Artist a commission in Feb 2019, which he is refusing to deliver or refund. Broken promises and basically theft. Never happened to me before when buying urban art direct from an artist.
