Tomorrow Paper Monster will release two new limited edition prints, one from the prolific duo, Cost and Revs, and the other from Brooklyn-based artist, Rostarr. While we hate to play favorites, we were thoroughly excited to see the old “Fuck you” logo with the middle finger by Cost and Revs released from 1993. During the height of the two artists collaborative partnership, this image (impossible not to miss) could be seen all over the streets of New York.

If there were a Brooklyn’s all-star wheat pasting cast, this would be pretty close. All on one wall, Cost, Faile, Bast, and Judith Supine. And the abandoned kids bike of course.

Things start to build up, become layered, and over time make for a wonderful looking wall, in our eyes at least. I can only imagine the eyesore this appears to be to others.

Arguably two of the most influential street/graffiti artists to paint the streets of New York and surrounding Burroughs in the 90’s were Cost and Revs. They took the practice of getting your name up in new directions with rollers, stickers, and wheatpastes. Revs gained even further attention when he changed mediums installing metal sculptures around town, while Cost remained out for the spotlight.

A pioneer of street art, Cost made his presence known in New York during the 90’s with his partner Revs, but you already knew that. Classic Photo.

Cost just released a limited edition “Cost Was Here” print through Paper Monster. Known for his rollers, stickers, and posters with his partner Revs, Cost is an important figure in the progression of “street art” before the word was ever muttered.

One of the best touches of MOCA's "Art In the Streets" was the inclusion of NYC's COST & REVS, vital parts of the entire graffiti and street story. Right now through Paper Monster, COST has a new print, "COST WAS HERE," available in 3 different colorways.

Cost and Revs have been a huge influence to numerous graffiti and street artists over the years. Their presence in New York in the 90's was strong, progressive, and relentless. Although we would be hesitant to pay the eBay listed price of $150 for a xeroxed zine that was not signed or numbered, we would love to have this little gem in our collection.

Brooklynite Gallery has a few COST print releases available now from the NYC-street legend. Right now, you can get a 4-pack screen-print set for $150, and there is also a 'Snub-Nose' print (above), for $25. More after the jump . . .
