We have been getting asked about these recently so we decided to let a few go. This is one of the coolest objects we ever made. We absolutely love this image by KAWS. It was perfect for our intended purpose. The image is funny, satirical, and captured the absurdist strain that played a fairly strong role in much of the artwork. Now it's a rare artifact and the historical context of this objet d'art comes much more into focus. These look fantastic floating in a simple square black frame. Super clean aesthetic. ALL PURCHASES WILL INCLUDE A CERTIFICATE OF AUTHENTICITY FROM THE BEAUTIFUL LOSERS ARCHIVE and is Unframed.
However, the main reason for the post is to announce that we will be offering authentication services (Certificates of Authenticity) for anyone who already owns one. A couple years ago we released a modest batch of these. They did not come with Certificates of Authenticity and some posters have changed hands since then. People have since asked us if the one they own is real etc. This is a pretty rare artifact and one we can easily authenticate for you if you own one. If you bought directly from us, we just need your order information and good images. If you bought it off the secondary market, we would need to inspect it in person. We will only charge $20 for this service and you would be responsible for shipping charges to us and back to you. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to start the process.
For those who don't know the story behind these, they were made as a promotional giveaway at the very first Beautiful Losers exhibition in 2004. They were only available on site. You had to be there to get one. The remainder have been in our storage since then. A rare and important little piece of (street) art history.
