    Those are nice contemporary images. Are those paintings or screenprinted images? Because if they're printed you could've propably found similar images online and have them printed for far less.

    It's crap. If you don't like them.

    It's not crap. If you like them.

    What do you people think?

    Oh and apologies for the crappy pics:




    No. 2 and 3 I lie more than no. 1, but if you like it then it is fine.

    Now just fine a place in your house where they fit in....

    Black wooden frames, or those white faded / scruffy looking frames.

    If you bought them for a reasonable price that you were prepared to pay, then you've done well. For me, personally, art is there to enhance the room mostly. Sometimes it's about an emotion that a picture evokes, and sometimes it's about a name (very rarely in my case).

    I bought one of the many fake / doctored Fr Claerhouts, but I'm happy with it cos I wanted the picture in my house. Finish and claerhout.

    I didn't buy them, so none of that applies to me.

    HOW?
    Banksy is gritty and current and graffiti.
    These are "screenprint" architectural prints?
    Really?

    I didn't mean as an art expert, but rather what jumped into my head. The white parts in OP look similar to the people in banksy's work (style).
