The first day of kaws' "prints" exhibit they also allowed an order of one EA. There was no sign or advertisement for them. If you inquired about any "prints" they gave you this option. The "paper smile" piece is the exact size of the paper smile print (25"x20") which was originally released by the high museum in 2012.
The exact edition ; 100 - they are not numbered. This is what I was told by two different execs at the museum. I have an original of "paper smile" and have included a picture of this piece next to that piece.
The piece is not signed. Printed at the top left hand corner is "kaws prints high". Top right going vertically in small writing kaws paper smile, 2012, screen print on paper, high museum of art, Atlanta, gift of the artist (c) KAWS. IT IS LITERALLY THE EXACT SAME PIECE.THE "PRESENTING THE PAST IS 25"x25" WHICH IS SLIGHTLY SMALLER THAN THE ORIGINAL "PTP" (32"x25). This piece says the same thing as "paper smile" top left "high museum of art" but on the bottom right, going vertically in small writing "presenting the past", 2014, screen print on paper, high museum of art, Atlanta, gift of the artist (c) KAWS. Sure to go up in value. Printed on literally the exact same paper. Very heavy card stock type paper.
THESE ARE VERY NICE PRINTS. QUITE A SURPRISE TO THOSE IN ATTENDANCE- AS IS THE ART WORLD. Take note white mark on back is simply covering sticker/barcode on print. I will let new owner remove it if you like. I would simply leave it and float it.
BE SURE TO LOOK AT PICTURES AND COMPARE THESE PIECES. THE PIECE ON THE LEFT IS FOR SALE. THE PIECE ON THE RIGHT IS AN ORIGINAL "PAPER SMILE". Any small imperfections are a result of the printing process. This item is in the category "Art\Art Prints".The seller is "e_tronics_wholesale" and is located in this country: US.
