The London Police, Flying Fortress & Pez: Special Limited Print

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, September 09, 2008
The London Police, Flying Fortress, and Pez have created a very limited edition print (only 19) exclusively with Ad Hoc Art in conjunction with their upcoming show at the Gallery (with UK street and fine artist Eine!) opening this weekend. As there is an extremely limited quantity, only one print is available per customer because the boys have a conscience and wanted all art lovers to get a fair shot at owning a piece of their artistry. Here’s the break down... It’s an edition limited to only 19. Each one is hand spraypainted by the boys, so each is unique. It is a two-color, hand-printed silkscreen and measures 20” by 26”. All three artists will sign and number each print and they retail for $300 each. If you can’t pass up this amazing opportunity, make sure to grab a phone and dial away. Details right this way.
