Preview: Know Show @ Basel Week (Miami)

Mark Murphy from Murphy Design Fine Art Editions will be at Art Basel Miami again this year with his “KNOW” exhibit showcasing over 90 artists (many of which are well known to our readers).  The show will be at the Gen Art Vanguard Fair from December 4th – 9th.  Judging from last years show, we feel this is a great chance to own works from well known artists at an affordable price since the pieces are mainly 10′ x 10″ in size.  Look after the […]

Releases/Benefit: MOCA Ryden Silkscreen

Mark Ryden teamed up recently with MOCA to release a limited edition silkscreen print entitled “Silence.” The print measures 28 x 22 inches and is a signed and numbered edition of 50 with 10 Artist proofs. “Meticulously crafted, printed on finely handmade paper from Bhutan, and carefully dyed and aged, the work is completed by two embossings created in the final process—a beautifully hand-sculpted bee and the printer’s chops into the corners.” The print will put you back about $6000 and supposedly only about 20 […]

For Sale: Banksy Wall

A story came out today about a section of wall for sale on ebay that had a Banksy stencil on it from his times in Jamaica.  The wall is free … but the catch is you have to purchase a set of photographs (one of which seen below) that chronicle the “deconstruction” of the wall – starting bid 100K.  The photos are entitled “The Rock” taken by photographer Peter Dean Rickards of The Afflicted Yard, presumably the “owner” of the Banksy. So if you have […]

Openings: Kuksi & Rocha @ Joshua Liner Gallery

The frigid gusting wind on Manhattan’s west side did nothing to discourage an art-hungry crowd from attending Saturday evening’s Kris Kuksi and Pat Rocha openings at Joshua Liner Gallery. As mentioned in our preview, Kuksi’s work really needs to been seen in person to be believed. Each piece is obsessively constructed of hundreds upon hundreds of individual parts to form a frightening yet beautiful world of men and monsters. And with some works measuring over 10 feet in length, one could spend hours and hours […]
