ABOUT THE ART
This year's final release will be sent off with not one, but TWO new editions of original stencils! We will be mixing it up with a true TABBY classic, "The Sound of Uzis" (originally painted 2014), as well as one of the newest members "Working Chimp - No Idea" (2020). Each piece comes in a selection of either Classic Grey or Blue editions.
These are painted on 40x50cm canvas panels, a finely woven canvas affixed to a wooden background. They are perfect for getting the most details out of stencils and can easily be placed in any standard or custom 40x50cm frame. This allows for a perfect canvas look and feel that a print could only dream about.
Canvas panels are my personal favorite and great for anybody who has been wanting to start up, or add another piece to their collection of TABBY originals. They are ideal as a Christmas present, either for a friend or yourself.
Dollar bill serial number registered and authenticated:
TABBY originals are usually marked as “dollar bill serial number registered and authenticated”. This means that there is a US dollar bill attached to the back side of the piece, with a unique serial number printed on it. When an original leaves the studio, the back side, including the dollar bill, is photographed and registered within an archive. Because of this, every piece has a unique serial number that can be traced and guarantees its authenticity. To forge the art, you would now also need to forge the US dollar bill.
“Stencil signed”: The piece has the “TABBY” name added via stencil and spray paint. In most cases on the front or side (canvas).
“Hand signed”: There is a hand signature added. Generally on the back side.
“Numbered”: If the piece is part of an edition, then its number is included. E.g 1/100. For prints this is usually on the front, for everything else on the back side.
“Dated”: In general, a piece will have the year written on the back (’18 or 2018). If a piece has “Dated” within the description, then the month or exact day will be added as well.
