Greg Lamarche Krylon Box Limited Edition Release
Artist, Master Penman, and 12oz Blogger, Greg Lamarche just released a new edition in collaboration with Anonymous Gallery. Unlike conventional print releases, this edition of 20 (plus five artist proofs) is silkscreen on a MDF box measuring 8.25 x 11 x 8.25 inches. The imagery is based on Krylon’s graphics from the 80’s and is a direct homage to Andy Warhol’s Brillo boxes from 1964 (pictured below). This work is available for purchase now on the Anonymous Gallery website. We also attached the statement from Anonymous Gallery below.
“The limited edition Krylon box is a celebration of pure graffiti aesthetics and the simplicity of the memorable Krylon spray paint logo. The Krylon brand was used throughout the 70s and 80s, the pivotal years of graffiti development in New York City and were the weapon of choice for subway vandals.
“With this classic graphic from the 1980s the Krylon box gets the full on pop art treatment as well as pays homage to the iconic Andy Warhol Brillo boxes. Just as Warhol famously recognized consumer objects as the most elemental creations of our society, Greg Lamarche refuses to separate fine art and commerce. Appropriated and reconfigured these boxes are an embodiement of a golden era when Krylon spray paint was at the height of its popularity and the New York subways trains were covered with the Krylon color spectrum. Retaining the nostalgic elements, but making it fresh for a post pop 21 century audience that now has an appreciation for this time gone by in graffiti history.
“Graffiti is a movement that is practiced and embraced all over the world and its influence has touched all areas of media and visual design. Today there are numerous spray paint brands marketed for graffiti and this edition is a testament to the early brands that were there in the beginning and acknowledges their importance in graffiti lineage. This is a must have for collectors of graffiti memorabilia and art collectors alike. Created by Greg Lamarche the graphics are silk-screened and spray coated .50-inch thick and durable Medium Density fiberboard. Each box is signed and numbered by the artist.”
