 ITEM DESCRIPTION

 Original 1st printing 20 x 34" 2017 art print poster, "The Ostracon", created for Miami Art Basel/Context Art Fair, commissioned by Spoke Art, a San Francisco-based artists collective/organization

 Art by (and SIGNED in pencil by) Chuck Sperry, this is an un-numbered A/P (Artist's Proof, separate from the regular edition of 150).

 Medium-thick oak tag stock hand-pulled silkscreen poster is in fantastic mint/near mint to near mint (A/A- to A-) condition; an absolutely STUNNING example of this recent Chuck Sperry poster with a beautiful design.... lots of VERY detailed overlays on this one.

 From Chuck's site: 

 "Ostrakon. (in ancient Greece) a potsherd, especially one used as a ballot on which the name of a person voted to be ostracized was inscribed.

“At any time, by a majority of votes written secretly upon potsherds (ostraka), the Assembly, in a quorum of six thousand members, might send into exile for ten years any man who in its judgement had become a danger to the state. In this way ambitious leaders would be stimulated to conduct themselves with circumspection and moderation, and men suspected of conspiracy could be disposed of without the law’s delay.”

 -Will Durant, The Life of Greece, The Story of Civilization, Part II"
