Frequently asked questions:
What is an HPM (Hand Painted Multiple)? An HPM, short for Hand Painted Multiple, refers to a limited edition of prints wherein each individual print is unique, despite being based on a common main image shared among all prints. These prints are produced in very low editions, and each one showcases distinctive variations in background and detailing, often with added unique collage components as well. Thus, even within a small edition, every artwork stands as a unique creation.
Are the Mixed Media pieces original works? Yes, the Mixed Media pieces are indeed original unique works, unless specified otherwise with an edition number. Shepard Fairey employs a unique visual language that draws inspiration from his rich artistic history. As a result, some elements might appear in multiple original works, which contributes to the iconic and cohesive nature of his art. Each Mixed Media artwork, however, stands as an individual and distinct creation.
What are the Shipping Costs? The shipping costs from STRAAT to destinations worldwide depend on the weight and size of the artworks. Generally, for most destinations, works from this catalogue are priced between €100 to €250. If you receive your invoice as a payment link or with bank transfer instructions, the shipping cost will be included in the total amount. If you checkout via our secure web portal, shipping costs will be added during the checkout process, along with any applicable special discounts.
Can I buy multiple works? Certainly! You are welcome to purchase multiple works. However, please note that for orders of more than 2 works to be delivered to one location, we require payment through a payment link or bank transfer. This serves two important purposes: Establishing a First Come, First Serve Policy and Optimizing Shipping Rates.
Will I Receive a COA with My Purchase? Yes, when you purchase Shepard Fairey artworks, you'll receive a Certificate of Authenticity (COA). The artist uses a secure blockchain-verified system through Verisart to ensure authenticity. After the exhibition, you'll get your COA from Obey Giant in a blockchain-created digital file. You also have the option to upgrade through the Verisart dashboard and receive a physical document with a QR code linked to the verifiable record. All Shepard COAs from 2016 onward are conveniently tracked on Verisart's dashboard, providing a clear provenance history.
Are the works signed by the artist?Absolutely, all of the works are personally signed and dated by Shepard Fairey. In the majority of cases, you will find Shepard's signature on the bottom right-hand side of the artwork. However, in certain special cases, the signature may appear in a different location, and occasionally, it might be found en verso (on the back) of the artwork.
