Its my newest obsession. With the passing of my good friend Robyn, came my need to invest in certain things that she likes. Good thing that I like them too. I have for some time now, even when she was alive, wanted to invest in some artists that she was fond of. Especially Sam Flores. Robyn had this beautiful tattoo on her arm, based off of one of his pieces.
His large scale pieces are beautiful, but at this stage in my life, there is no way I can afford any of it.
He is SF based, and sells much of his stuff out of Upper Playground. We went there today, and the only one they had was a signed print. Didn’t buy it there, but JUST purchased it online. Looking forward to getting it in the mail, and going to get it framed. San Francisco represent, and there is just something so intriguing about his work.
At Upper Playground, I’m also a fan of Jeremy Fish. He does a lot of skate decks, but considering I don’t skate, maybe I’ll just get a pillow. I dig this one…but I think its sold out. I’ll keep an eye out, and hopefully find it on ebay or something similar.
