Tradehooks Appreciates the finer things in Life.



Busy Pac Shakur P

Here at the Tradehooks offices we are great proponents of the arts, we have many rare watercolours hanging.

So-Me has recently (during March and May) had an exhibition at the STUDIO gallery in Toronto. The paintings were all portraits, many of Busy P, the justice crew, some M&M's, and many other Ed Banger graphic-esque type of things. The common feature is that they all feature Busy P. Apparently it started out as simply a show of portraits and transformed into the exhibition you can see through the link below.

As you may know, So-Me is the graphic designer behind all Ed Banger releases. He does some cool shit, that cannot be argued. Wait no thats a lie.. 

Limited edition, numbered and signed prints are $700. 

Non-Limited, Non signed ones on shitty paper go for $60.


The Ed Banger M&M

And before the barrage of Ed Banger haters come out of the wood work, they make some cool tracks, and the prints in my opinion are very good.

Check it out on Studio's Webpage

What do you think?

Would you buy a non limited, non signed print for $60 bucks?

Can you only charge $700 bucks for a print if your friends with busy P and Justice?

Should tradehooks have an exhibition?

Or, are all of the pieces the same shitty pictures of a Long-Haired french dude who is only famous because he was lucky enough to meet daft punk at a club night when he was 21, and ride their coat tails to electro heaven?

  5. I think you will find "real anonymous" that anonymous 2, was directing that comment towards you not us.

    If you think the blog sucks so much why do you come to it? The fact is you choose to come and view it regularly.

    How much weight do you think other readers give to attacks hidden behind an anonymous name?
