Josh Agle is an American artist, otherwise know as Shag. I’ve loved his artwork for a while now, although I didn’t know it was his until recently. After I found-out what his name was, I found some postcard prints on ebay that I could afford. I think I spent around $18 for all three, which is still a lot for some postcards. His prints are really expensive, though, at least with regard to my budget, so this is a way I can purchase his artwork and still make my mortgage payment. I bought some RIBBA frames from IKEA last weekend that were on sale for $.99 a piece. They come with a mat and are very substantial feeling. The only thing I don’t like about these frames is the hanging mechanism, which we still need to address. However, I think these little art pieces look fabulous, especially for $21 total.
The one with the bull holding the cat and eight ball is my favorite. The title is “It is Certain”, which I think is great.
I love them. I keep looking at them, noticing new little details I missed before. We haven’t hung them yet, due to the aforementioned hanging issue with the frames, but I’ll let you know when we do.
I think this is a great way to get some very nice looking artwork for a fraction of the price. Granted they’re small pieces, but grouped together they make something that looks much bigger that it really is. Have you done something similar? Please share!
