Sounds like there might be some room for negotiation on the price of the water colors. For what it's worth, the ones they had at Lazarides (think there's one left) were 3500 GBP (appx. $5700) and they measured 18" x 24" while the ones at Giant Robot are 27" x 21".
some of the watercolours that i've seen are my favourite work from choe. i like the simplicity of the 'head' type of paintings. very elegant. some of the larger 'canvas' pieces can be a little too busy for me.
some of the watercolours i've seen though i wouldn't want on the wall - the titles of the one's i'm referring to are hilarious though. choe doesn't seem afraid to let out onto the page whatever fucked up thoughts are in his head at that moment in time, which is something i admire him greatly for.
I was at the PYO gallery in Beijing last March for Choe's show and was told that this painting was sold unless the rep meant that it was not for sale at that time. Mmm.... Nevertheless, this is a great painting and I certainly hope that Mr. Choe will bring a few of his Beijing works to SF because they're worth the visit to the show.
Geez, print edition never crossed my mind for this piece and I would definitely grab it myself even though I've tried to refrain from purchasing Choe's prints in the past, but a few of Choe prints were too irresistible for me to avoid that I had to pull the trigger on them!
I think I might go for a print, I made my first Banksy purchase last week (yay!) and am going to Japan for a couple weeks on top of that (yay again!), so definitely trying to curb the spending this month, what do you folks think of "Ignored Prayers"?
Coming from my head, I recall the pieces: Tender Nob, Pretty Unrealistic, and Skulls and Bones. The _Pretty Unrealistic_ is still available as of last night. I'm at a school campus so can't actually view them at this moment...
