After hitting up Thunder Jackson in the West Village and pretending to be Banksy, Nick Walker has moved on to Williamsburg, creating this radio controlled, “Vandal” spitting-giraffe. With his work featured in tomorrow’s auction at Bonham’s NY, the artist is hard at working trying to drum up some added hype by hitting as many legal walls as possible. Considering how well he did in that last auction, it should be interesting to see if his recent flurry of street activity helps up the prices on the few pieces he has. Despite the small selection of work this is a hugely important auction for the 39-year-old stencil artist from Bristol. He’s got London and LA geeked, now all he needs to do is lock down NY, which might be tough considering the city’s alleged lack of excitement or rather, paying big money for street art. |WilliamsburgIsDead|
