    The exhibits from the recent Tag the System show are for sale online here. If only I had a few $1000 spare I'd get me a few of them, including the VFR and Sonic Bad ones.

    I liked the oclock one - but seriously anyone who pays 1000+ for those is a fucking idiot - especially the seen one with the "Graffiti" stencil that sold for 2500

    quick, let me reply and say how stupid i think it is too.
    :rolleyes:

    most weren't my cup of tea, and maybe it's just raven rubbing off on me, but prices like that aren't really very shocking anymore.

    what is sad to me, is that the phase2 trains were still up for grabs, but that piece of shit obey train was sold. someday it would be cool to see value set by a more deserving scale.

    Got to say seeking hit the nail ont he head.. All the ones I'd go crazy for are unsold, (like that sonic bad one!!), but all the ones that are boring are sold. Terrible state of affiars

    that might not actually be accurate.though i have no inside knowledge, i'd be pretty surprised if those that 'sold', actually did sell. i'm thinking many of the artists kept their own pieces, and it sort of makes sense to do so, since this is so far from thir own body of work. perhaps it's me reaching, but based off my familiarity with many of these people, and how many people in the limelight tend to be, it wouldn't surprise me at all if many kept their own pieces to keep them from entering the public domain and possibly affecting the art they are known for, or that many of them bought or took them off sale to further the impression that their stuff is in demand and sells out quickly.

    or maybe i'm totally wrong and kids simply eat that stuff up as quickly as they can get their hands on it, since in general, the stuff tends to appreciate anyhow. in this case, i just have a tough time seeing that.

    regardless, the prices themselves are within the range expected for works from those names, despite whether or not the work itself is up to par with what they regularly produce.

    another interesting thing is examining what names are missing from that list. whether intended or not.
