Phillips de Pury’s upcoming Dec. 17 auction highlights are chock-full of ’80s goodness: big boomboxes, art boobs, Basquiat, T-KID, Ghost, and Cope2 tags on NYC subway maps, Keith Haring matryoshkas, Natasha Kinksi in her prime, a cool kid (note: not a yuppie) from Robert Longo, Kenny Scharf’s sardined color blobs (like the mural) and a […]

There’s a Graffiti and Street Art Camp in Miami this summer. Pay $300 and your five-to-nine-year-olds will spend a week going on mural-sighting field trips and learning about Keith Haring, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Andy Warhol, color theory, composition and running really fast when you get caught doing said graffiti.

Mike Leavitt has scaled down some familiar artists. Behold, the Art Army: a bizarre Mark Ryden, a dissected Damien Hist, a masked Banksy, a be-bucketed Shepard Fairey and more. The pieces are hot items. Leavitt sold more than 200 out of his 240 art-action figures. Ron English’s wife bought Leavitt’s Ron English. KAWS not only […]

Unless you have a strong tolerance for gross/corny, looking at a plastic Jeff Koons getting nasty isn’t recommended for any age group. To see it at Canada’s National Gallery, you’ll need ID proving you’re 18 or older. […]

So, yeah, that’s really nice of you, Shepard Fairey, but there’s something terrifying about this Keith Haring t-shirt for AIDS Walk. Maybe it’s Fairey trademark slapped onto the memory of Haring. Maybe it’s the slightly bemused deer-in-the-headlights look that Fairey exaggerated when generically OBEY-ofying the original photo by Patrick McMullan; it says: “Why am I on […]
