The first of the two time-shifted releases showcases a 1:1 fibreglass noop head, in the classic pain colour palette, finished in a shimmering high gloss coat. For the first time, these exhibition-calibre pieces are available for public purchase, a one off opportunity.
Following the traditional bust sculpture format, this latest portrayal captures a dramatic moment at the end of the noop’s life, as blood runs down his chin and onto his chest. His drained existence is accentuated by sunken features and lifeless colours. A distinctive coarse creation.
Its impressive 20” (51 cm) height makes the noop bust a one of a kind, eye catching piece of art. Every one is hand crafted, finished in high gloss and lined with a soft felt base. They are safely shipped individually in styrofoam and protected in a 4-tone printed, supreme cardboard box. Each bust also includes a signed certificate of originality and one family and friends application card.
Those who pick up this full release will already have 2 of 3 family and friends application cards, just one step away from being a coarse family and friends member. coarse family and friends membership gives you priority access at coarse hkg – including bookings, simplified access to limited releases and other advantages based on availability.
coarse guarantees that every noop bust customer will have access to purchase the giant 27” (69 cm) paw! bust, to be released December 8 this year.

Absolutely stunning pieces (as usual) from Coarse, that high gloss finish is delicious. I’m actually contemplating selling a chunk of my collection to make room for these beasts and I can hardly wait to see who the first crazy person is that decides to customise one (or both) of these, and then proceed to ask “Why?!”.
Expect a very excited unboxing post/video should I manage to get my hands on one, I imagine these will sell out pretty fast, even with the high price tag :]
