{     Pictures On Walls     }    

When we at Crown Dozen see places like Pictures On Walls doing what they do, we raise our goblets on high, slinging thick fermented mead all over the damn place in a drunken viking roar. It just warms our cold, cold hearts to see people doing something good for the rest of us just because they have a love for art. And what exactly might they be doing you ask? Why that would be selling searing hot artwork for an absolute pitance, allowing fools like me, he, she, and you to hang something on our walls that could damn well just the same be hanging in a snobby gallery in downtown NY or London and selling for hundreds of dollars. You see, POW is selling not just posters, but actual full-on screenprints of original works from artists you either love or damn well should. Artists such as Pete Fowler (Monsterism), Jamie Hewlett (Tank Girl, Gorillaz), Bast, Faile, the incomparable Banksy, and one of my personal faves, Insect are represented here. These prints are each hand-pulled In Birmingham using quality inks on heavy grade paper, every one a work of art in it's own right. Oh, and they're not tiny either. Matter of fact, most prints on the POW site have a little picture under them so you can actually see the scale. Thoughtful. The key here is the price, which means you can have a limited edition silkscreened print from POW, by an artist you love, hanging over your ratty-ass crumb-covered couch for around £50, or just about $75-$100.

This is the kind of site you spend your whole life looking for. Then you spend the rest of your life trying to buy all the cool shit they sell.
I am in awe- Even if you don't have any money, you need to go and have a look and start saving pennies right now. Like Mom said, they add up.

Also, it's imperative that you witness the accompanying text for each piece- it's a little bit of that old Brit wit, sharp as a fucking razorblade and funny as hell. I laughed out loud, and I'm mostly an internal quiet laugh kinda guy. (Okay that's not true, but I WAS at work, and people looked at me really funny when I guffawed at the comments on a Jamie Hewlett piece.)

These guys rock. They have a real eye for what is cool and most importantly what will sell. They've been going a while and it's great to see that they are being noticed over in the states. They had a hugely successfull (especially for Banksy) show at the Diesel Denim Galleryin NYC earlier this year. I've one of the Banksy prints and it is very nicely done on special thick paper - lovely : )

I hadn't been to a Banksy exhibition until his recent 'Crude Oils' exhibition here in London. What a show - and did you hear about the live rats running around the gallery space? It was really something else. The original paintings on show were marvellous. One in particular really caught my eye - it was of Kate Moss in a Warhol 'Marilyn' style. The canvas reputedly sold for £10,000. Having looked into Banksy's work since the show I have discovered they have just published a silkscreen limited edition of this image - absolutely amazing. I saw it on I now have one on my wall....I think it's going to be very sought after in time to come!
