Fastest fingers first for this new Faile print – Fashion Chimps NYC.
The Papermonsters blurb on the new print is as follows:
This brand new print from the guys at Faile was a long time in the making, and it shows. Based on a piece from their 2010 show at Perry Rubenstein Gallery, this 25 color screenprint is done in their recent “block” style which gives the illusion of its 3D sister from the show.
At $800 its something of a bargain and still available at time of posting here

One to watch or buy if you have a spare $12,000, Faile’s Bronze Scuba Horse is now for sale. These are jewelry cast bronzes from the renowned Raneri Sculpture Cast foundry. A solid investment and frankly gorgeous too!
These are a small set of works featuring the Faile Flag. Three wooden palettes are conjoined within a steel frame to make up the flag image. All sides (top, bottom, left, right) are printed individually with Faile typography and patterns, and the wood is treated with a weathered patina. The steel frame is welded with “FAILE” and “1986″ on respective sides.20 Unique Works.

Not to boast (honestly!) but I’ve got a lot of Faile stuff – prints, sculpture etc. These days their work is darn expensive and very hard to get your hands on before it been stuck on eBay for wildly ambitious prices.
One of their recent edition releases has had me hesitating over some hefty Buy it Now auctions on eBay - well it does combine Faile and the legend Sugar Ray Robinson – the greatest boxer of all time. For now though I will enjoy it in jpg form:
Brooklyn born and bred, Bast has been an intricate part of the street art scene for well over 15 years throughout New York and Europe, his wheat-pasted images and tags featuring prominently across the urban landscape. A sometime collaborator of the mighty Faile collective. Screen printing is at the heart of most all Bast’s work, although it rarely stops there as he collages iconic images and logo’s, before adding thick, heavy-handed layers of paint
The full-scale church in ruins in Praça dos Restauradores Square in Lisbon was in their own words ”created in conjunction with Portugal Arte 10 in Lisbon. We’ve been working on this for some time as many of you know. After almost two years of concepts, sketches, grueling math, heavy lifting and three bouts of food poisoning (not in the Temple) it is finally here”.
