No Elvis Presley merchandise collection is complete without a mint copy of the recalled Atari game Elvis: Chaos in Graceland, designed and coded by Presley himself. Get one step closer to the King's ransom with today's Groupon for one of three options of limited edition Elvis Presley framed prints from Peter Mars:
- For $89, you get one limited-edition framed Elvis Presley Philly Rockin' #1 lithograph with city print customization (a $275 value).
- For $89, you get one limited-edition framed Elvis Presley Philly Rockin' #2 lithograph (a $275 value).
- For $159, you get one of each print (a $550 value).
These limited-edition prints, of a run of 975 each, blend images of the King with mixed media to create compelling contemporary art fit only for high-end galleries and officially licensed Elvis depots. Artist Peter Mars was named an official artist of Elvis Presley Enterprises and was given unprecedented access to Graceland Archives's 60,000 photographs of the famous hip-swiveller. Bursting through each shot is rich, Warholian color magma that melts into found art, poster typography, and pupil-popping pattern eruptions. Along with a certificate of authenticity, each print is hand signed by Mars and individually numbered. The 12"x17" images come in a 16"x20" gallery frame ready to hang above the fireplace in the homes of Presley fanatics and art-collecting basset hounds.
For the last 20 years, Peter Mars has been commemorating American pop culture through his renowned paintings and printmaking. Like James Dean during his "all pig Latin all the time" phase, Mars fuses avant-garde experimentation with pop-culture sensibility. His work has graced the walls of international exhibits and has been procured by gallery gourmands such as Sheryl Crow, Sandra Bernhard, and Michael Jordan.
