Note: This RUN contains 1 of each of Shark Toof's "Guilty Pleasures" screen prints.
"The name Shark Toof and the original Shark Toof Icon were developed at the same time. With my Graffiti Art roots, I know how important it is to establish and own a tag name, and more importantly an image to remind the viewer of that tag name.
After a good full year of establishing the Shark Toof Icon on the streets, I didn't quite know where I wanted to move the Icon. It took some isolation to really stand behind my own beliefs without becoming a political artist. Thinking of iconographic shapes, I thought the cigarette pack is an easily identifiable shape which lead me to the idea of "Guilty Pleasures" and the Shark Toof Cigarette Pack. Although, I am not a smoker myself, I support every individual to indulge in whatever pleasures them as long as others aren't effected.
The Shark Toof Slot Machine was a natural progression as the slot machine is also an iconographic image on its own. The twist on the image is that the jackpot are cigarettes which ties into the Shark Toof Cigarette Pack print. In other words, by indulging in your guilty pleasure, the jackpot will be more guilty pleasures." - Shark Toof
Please Note: The edition sizes of 60 / 40 / 40 respectively will remain the same for each print in this 3 - print set.
This RUN is signed, numbered and comes with a Certificate of Authenticity from Shark Toof and 1xRUN.
Shark Toof was born and raised in Los Angeles, California where started painting graffiti in 1985 before eventually graduating from Art Center College of Design.
