I'm just glad that I got what I paid for. All dealings with Artasylumboston were positive, and having nothing but good words about this individual. This is whom I bought an ICA Box set from for $350. I dealt with a Jason from Artasylum, but it was not Jason Zenga. I also made my first payment for the ebay auction to a Dorrine Zenga. Then made my payment to the Jason i have dealt with in the past. It seems like there is crew using the Artasylum name, and some of them are giving it a bad name. Like I said before, my dealings with Artasylum have been positive, so I dont want to give this guy a bad name.

One other item that came from my inquires is that "Jason Zeng" (from the eBay contact information, "Zenga" from the whois domain information) is also known to go by "Jason Mattarazo" and also "Jason Zenag."

Further, "Jason Zenga" ("Jason Robert Zenga") presents himself as being the owner and director of the gallery: http://www.linkedin.com/pub/dir/jason/zenga

The former "artasylumboston" user here made the same claim, under whatever name.

Eh, I thought the whole flipping multiple ICA Boxed Sets was shady from the get go.

Blazedoutbee had an issue with him as well but I know there are those who would simply regard that as, "birds of a feather."

I don't know about you guys but it's impossible for me to hear the name Jason Zenga without thinking about...

Not me, but you have beefed with some other members. We've never done business as I recall.

Someone mentioned they thought he was alright before the fake stencil deal and I noted that you had a problem with him because you posted about it. I also know you were in receipt of stolen test prints and since some people might consider both actions unsavory I noted that to be even handed. I'm just callin' 'em like a I see 'em, not trying to take any shots.

montanainc, what makes you think it is fake? As the wiki says there was a legitimate offset run of these.

Paper just seems a little too light weight... I know pasters are light weight but I'm still not 100% sure...just wanting to know if anyone had a definitive answer from the pic's provided
I'm not too sure with the older prints as to what weight paper were used, don't have much experience with the older stuff as you can probably tell

I have that paster too and it looks the same. I'd say it's real.

it looks real to me also... chances are... if it were a fake... it would (more likely) be dead mint... with no problems... (and there would be a lot of them floating around) - registration looks clean and sharp. - I would not worry....
