Each print is hand-titled “Pepper’s World” and signed by Saber.
The print will be available for purchase on saberone.com/ on Wednesday or Thursday this week.
They are both from the L.A. scene so I'm certain that they know of one another.
What's impresses me most about Saber is the range of styles that he has. In my opinion, his style is much more diverse than Mear. For example, this image bears little to no resemblance to Flag 2010, which bears little to no resemblance to his abstract paintings, which bears little to no resemblance to his spider paintings, and so on ...
As I mentioned in the other thread before it went to hell, I really like the fact that each of these prints is essentially a one off. It gives entry level collectors the chance to own something more unique than just a signed/numbered xerox-like print.
Great story to the print on Sabers blog, i love reading stuff like this:
Pepper is a true street artist in the purist sense. He’s known to some by his altar ego; “the Mayor of Skid Row”, and he’s proud to proclaim that he’s the last homeless person on the forefront of downtown LA’s gentrification. He lives on Santa Fe Ave. where years ago a large tent city used to be, the last holdout.
When I was younger and creeping around downtown, I would notice these colorful, bold, and scrappy art instillations. Pepper has a habit of decorating his immediate surroundings, wherever that might be, with multi-colored paint splats, piled on discarded toys, and other purposefully arranged found objects. You can frequently catch him running around the city with his red shopping cart full of freshly discarded trinkets.
The print “Pepper’s World”, and the mural I painted on 7th and Mateo that it inspired, is in homage to his existence. I have enormous respect for those who can survive in such extreme conditions yet still be able to express themselves creatively…….

I thought you guys might be interested in some more of the production photos on this print! I can honestly say that Saber is one of the hardest working artists that we have had in the studio... for reals.
It's refreshing to have someone in the studio that is so dedicated to his work and the process.
There are some more photos on the Modern Multiples facebook! ;D

I just checked and the prints are now available on Saber's site saberone.com/product/?id=78 . There are also a whole bunch of photos I have not seen before, including several of the hand separations, more production shots and tons of Pepper. Pepper is indeed awesome, but Saber as Bob Ross is priceless!!
"This is a clip from the upcoming short documentary on Saber’s “Pepper’s World” Project. The video will be released soon. Watch for it.
Saber recently created a mural downtown and a limited edition print to honor one of downtown Los Angeles’ most original Street Artists; Pepper. This is a video preview of Pepper and the project that Saber dedicated to him… Lately there’s been alot of hype in the news and TV about street art and graffiti. Well, this is what it really comes down to. If you want to know what’s up with street art in LA, you need to know Pepper.
