Trainspotters NYC Walk/Don’t Walk Street Signs

IMG_3235
An amazing opportunity to own a piece of New York iconography comes in the shape of these original Walk/Don't Walk Street Signs from industrial salvage specialists Trainspotters.

These classic signs have never been used as they were in storage when the decision was taken in 1999 to decomission this style of sign and replace it with an LED graphic version. Made of cast aluminum and vandal-proof glass (and weighing a hefty 6.8kg) the signs have been fitted with new circuitry and flash at timed intervals. They can be either wall-mounted or suspended.

Owning a piece of NYC history will set you back a hefty £925 + VAT. Find out more here.

Roy Lichtenstein-inspired POW(ER) limited edition print by Obey

Power

Classic pop art gets a contemporary twist with the Roy Lichtenstein-inspired POW(ER) limited edition print by Obey.

Obey is, of course, the brand of Shepard Fairey and is his homage to influential pop artist Roy Lichtenstein, who, in his time, used and re-painted existing comic frames to give them new meaning. Fairey has done something similar with a classic Lichtenstein image, throwing in a reference to modern-day street art for good measure.

The final work is an 18 x 24-inch screenprint, signed and numbered in a run of 450 and certain to be a valuable piece o years to come. But right now you can pick it up for $45. It goes on sale 'at a random time' on the site today.
