I don't consider that they're 'dull', I'm still musing the Brighton Beach, the price point isn't in itself puttng me off, it's the bloody postage, plus import duty to the UK, plus framing costs which are making me have reservations.......
Can't get too excited around the blocks - personal opinion and all that, $600 is a pipe dream I hope.....
Brentwood's had enough of TOWIE tourism, we are a one horse town and a little boring, spread the word.....
Out of interest, what are people planning on doing with the blocks? I've always thought one of the larger boxes would look great in the right setting, but i don't have the right setting so i've never been able to test that theory.... Anyways, look forward to seeing what people do with them.
lets just say i work for the blah blah blah, and i have a licence to blah.

Personelly I think "Launch Tonight" is a fantastic image, this when framed is going to be absulutley stunning 39 x 27.5, you'll be looking at a 4 foot frame and the pink is so unusual i tell you this is going to be a blinder I'd love to see some framed up pictures when there done!!!
Agree about "Launch today" Think its a great Faile and will look brill next to this one :-)
Mirror Mirror, One of their best images.

yeah, huge fan of faile's and even though i had stilettos right up to paypal just couldn't pull the trigger... much prefer their other work and other pieces in the show... i see the blocks like the lazarides coins, nice to have if you're a collector but not an investment piece... mind you, they probably said that about warhol's brillo boxes...
Well people are buying it up so yes you are right to say they are popular but ultimately fail is charging banksy prices for something they are not. 6 maybe 7 out of ten people in the uk would probably be aware of banksy thats just a guess.. but my point is that less than 1 out of ten people would know who faile was. Even shep fairey is better known and hes charging $50 a print!
Its art for all the wrong reasons, banksy is the man and he can do what he likes in this market as far as I am concerned, he hasn't released one print this year! even I queued over night for the last one! he has droped laz and slowly dropping pow.
I'm sorry In my opinion which I am entitled too...faile is not worth all the hype as good as the art may be. They take full advantage of the fact that some middle aged people have to much money and feel young and hip by buying "alternative art".

You are free to your opinion but Faile has been around for quite some time. It's not like MBW riding some big hype train. They are charging fair market value for there prints to deter flipping. Shepard releases 450 prints a week so even at 50.00 thats over 40k a month on avg. His market is built on flipping IMO. Listen I could give a s**t about Faile but the reality is they have a nice international market the people who can afford the pieces do so and so what. I like Banksy a lot as well but he has cashed in at times and I don't blame him. Lets agree to disagree

Probably more like 1 in 100 people know what Faile is. And probably 1 in 1000 people know who Wade Guyton is yet his stuff sells for more than both Faile and Banksy.
lvc: If I may be so bold, you are certainly entitled to your opinion (and if we all liked the same stuff, life would be deadly dull and all that) but why do you care of other people like and buy Faile prints? I don't like all the art on this forum, but it doesn't bother me if others do. What about it bothers you so much? Not trying to be a jerk, just curious. You seem quite emphatic.
Sub Rosa is definitely awesome. Not sure if these would have been more difficult than the three that were released. The prints are 18 colors, so that would make these three feasible, I would imagine? Maybe not Bedtime Stories.
