LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - Nov 28, 2012) - Capital Art, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: CAPA) will offer limited edition offset lithographs by prolific pop/graffiti artist and social activist Keith Haring to kick off the holiday shopping season on Fab.com.
"Original works by this artist can fetch millions at auction, but thanks to Capital Art and Fab.com fans of Keith Haring may now hang one of his works in their very own home," commented CEO Sean Goodchild. "This is a perfect example of our ongoing strategy to make desirable art more accessible as something special for the home, a great investment or treasured gift."
Capital Art first worked with Fab.com in early 2012, offering the iconic imagery of photographer Frank Worth at great prices and in the first day sold over 1000 prints. Since then, Capital Art has continued to offer artwork from the Vault on Fab.com achieving record sales every time.

Later in December, Capital Art will again offer the remarkable Frank Worth fine art lithographs to Fab.com's members. Whether these consumers are looking for the perfect piece of art to decorate their home or the perfect gift, Capital Art and Fab.com has something special just for them.
