CEASE And DESIST - Enamel Figure Pin - by Factory Sample

$1,286

CEASE and DESIST - Enamel Pin - by Factory Sample

A conceptual detournement, of a banned appropriation, made into a commercial object. Its a long story...

"Art is what you can get away with" -Andy Warhol

WHY? Creative Expression is Absolute

Nothing exists in a vacuum. All creativity builds upon the past. And nothing is outside of the realm of human interpretation. Art and Culture is an ongoing conversation humanity has with itself. 

Freedom of Expression means companies don't get to pick and choose who they inspire, who makes art, and how they make it. That would be censorship. 

"The bad artists imitate, the good artists steal." -BANKSY

About Factory Sample

There is an enigmatic and abstruse entity known only as FACTORY SAMPLE. And far be it for them, as an Artist, to make public statements in mere letters with spaces between them.

About Discordia Merchandising

We make cool things. With cool Artists. Sometimes on Kickstarter, like THIS, and THIS. And we are pleased to help Factory Sample bring this Conceptual Art Object to life. We like art that pushes boundaries and makes statements.

Discordia Merchandising has made quite a few enamel pins for Artists so far, such as Monster Little, Rato Kim, and COLUS. We perfected the Enamel Figure Pin packaging when we made the following item for Suckadelic.

Risks and challenges

Risks? Little to none. Enamel Pins only take a few weeks to make with a factory we have worked with many times. The packaging will be made at the same time, and the assembly process should not take long at all. We have done this before.
