~ALFREDO & Christie’s ?
OMG, ALFREDO MARTINEZ . . is ‘trending’, too !!
this, just in from . . Alfredo:
“a skull drawing of mine sold for 750 at
christies i made the Estimate
some other people, not so much… nerve
racking, glad I did not know [at the] time”
can this be true.
would need to verify, should be on the Christie’s website ?
– back in 5.
HAHA. FILE UNDER: SOME MYTHS – NEVER CHANGE !!
Yes, ALFREDO did sell a piece at Christie’s, but back .. in the summer of 2012 !!
but then again, if you read his email . . he didn’t exactly say when .. did he ?
though the implication was yesterday. last week . . last month . . ?
I mean . . this is a big ploy, er .. play !! for attention, or what.
but ok – we will give him a pass.
