Serious Graffiti Legends Bringing In Serious Auction Money!

A couple weeks ago the Upper East Side's Doyle New York (an auction house), hosted a street art panel discussion.  Not so crazy right?  But, it "was" the U.E.S., so yes a little out of place. Shouldn't this happen downtown? Not any longer as legendary street art and graffiti is now playing  a serious role with serious art collectors.  
These legends from the 70's and 80's - and even today were showcased at not just this panel discussion but Doyle will host the fabulous works again on October, 16th for a full auction.  It's the first of it's kind in New York and the U.S.  Doyle is showcasing a decoupaged Vespa from Shepard Fairey, Banksy, Barry MCgee, Mr. Brainwash, Faile, KASW, Duster, BAST, Steven Powers, Blek le Rat and more, many more. 
Slides from the event presentation featuring writings from around the city in the 80's...

Selling on the street afterwards....of course.
To learn more visit for all the details. Or, stop in at 175 East 87th, between Lex & 3rd. Yes, even the U.E.S. pink haired ladies who love art, are now into graffiti.  Amazing!
