There's been a lot of activity in the studio over the last few months / years and today we're excited to finally share a new project.
Faile Puzzle Boxes:
As some of you know we've been exploring a series of work influenced by the use of modular wooden cubes over the last three years, this has come to fruition in a variety of ways. Today we are launching a new website and mobile app to highlight the original inspiration behind this work. Please take some time to enjoy the puzzles and play. The idea behind the site and app was to create a place where anyone can play, solve or abstract the artworks within the world of Faile. The links are here and there's more information below in the third person.
LA Works on Paper "Faile: A Decade of Prints & Originals":
It seems like everyone is heading out to LA, so we thought we'd join the party. We're doing a small, works on paper show with a new LA-based print shop called Post No Bills in Venice, CA. The show will feature a variety of works on paper over the last 12 years (a decade just sounded better). Plus a few other goodies. Should be fun. Opening will be June 23rd. There will be several new pieces available at the show. More information to come on this over the next few weeks.
PaperMonster Print: Tuesday - June 7th at Noon in New York. We know this one has taken a little longer than expected. Despite the amount of time, you can't really rush these, we couldn't be more pleased with the print. It will be an edition of 300, rather large in physical size and a lot of color. We hope you're going to enjoy it. Thanks for the inquiries. We'll be sure to send an update when it's set to launch.
That's it for now, more to come soon. Thanks to everyone as always, the support is greatly appreciated.
Love them. Can't justify 15k though. For not much more you can get one of block paintings up on your wall.
Here are the quick specs..
Dimensions: 12in. x 20in. x 4in (30cm x 51cm x 10cm) Acrylic & Silkscreen Ink on Custom, Hinged Wooden Box. Acrylic & Silkscreen Ink on 88, Six-sided (2in x 2in) Wooden Cubes. Signed COA by Faile 2010-2011. $15,000
These are absolutely brilliant and true pieces of art! The workmanship and hand finishing that went into the blocks is really where it's at. I was in NYC recently and got to see one in the flesh and let me tell you they are amazing. I'm hoping to get one myself.
Also looking forward to the show in LA on the 23rd...

mrblast: Was going to say the same thing zippy. Very hard to find your place in a thread now....
Mar 25, 2015 21:31:50 GMT 1
zippy: where has the 'new' button gone? it was very handy to know which threads you had read etc..

minibear: If people are worried to post FS threads due to trolling, then the mods should do something about the trolls. If Mod gets a complaint or sees someone trolling, warning and then suspension. Isn't that their job?

Wilson: Mr Silk are you unmoveable on the sale thread changes?

chads007: Think a few people will get burned with dodgy sellers. Can you restrict thread bumping to every 72 hours or something then. ..saves people creating same thread again

Daniel Silk: I think the settings have a few bugs, so will have to see how it goes over the next few days.
Mar 24, 2015 17:43:53 GMT 1
Daniel Silk: Too much of the "Recent Threads" and "New Posts" is taken up with childish bickering about Asking Prices and who is selling what.
Mar 24, 2015 17:37:54 GMT 1
Daniel Silk: I agree, but it might help pull things around to more serious discussion about Art on Art threads.
