Welcome to Prints on Wood!

D*Face - Scars and Stripes

A few months ago we released an exclusive Print on Wood with D*Face titled "Going Everywhere Fast" which sold out in 30 seconds!  The fastest release we have ever experienced.  We had no idea how serious and devoted D*Face fans and collectors were!   Well...except for those that immediately tried (and failed) to flip the prints, but that's a story for another day.


Fast forward to September 26th, the private viewing for Scars and Stripes, D*Face's premier art exhibit in the West Hollywood area of Los Angeles.  If you are not at first impressed by the mural "Your Dead to Me" on the side of the gallery, then maybe the smashed smoking LAPD car will catch you attention?  On second thought, maybe too much attention...

Either way, once you enter the gallery, it's hard not to be awe struct by the brightly colored characters, D*Face's nod to the master Lichtenstein, each facing death in one way or another.

Of course we were drawn to the old school wooden desk tops that were transformed into icon images of those who died before their time.  If you look close, the desk tops are filled with grade school graffiti from years gone by, a collaboration of sorts with the unknown school aged youth.

Speaking of collaborations, it was fun to catch up with Shepard and Amanda Fairey at the opening.  It was a perfectly timed break from Shepard's current international mural tour.

With over 30 pieces on exhibit, it's hard to choose a favorite, it's definitely something to see in person if you can.  So If you happen to be in the Los Angeles area in the next few weeks, make it a point to see this show!  Open until October 12th, at a pop-up location in West Hollywood, 315 S. Robertson Blvd.
