ANNE EASTMAN has really got her ‘mobile’ art – down. it still might be beyond the reach of most of ya – but that’s your problem. and at $4,000. (!!) – it’s a no-brainer, probably the sleeper of the season.

. . . they were on their way to the opening of ‘Shred’ at Perry Rubenstein – where we caught, for the first time, the elusive, but mighty talented BRIAN DOUGLAS aka ELBOW-TOE !!
he was way happier hanging out with fans – than being photographed !! no kidding.
but his piece was really great.

SHEPARD FAIREY, ‘Big Brother is Watching You’, 2010, retired stencil, mixed media on paper.

though I preferred the SWOON offering, ‘HELICOPTER’, 2010.
