Paintings by Richard Prince Comments | Jun 22 2008

Richard PrinceRichard PrinceRichard PrinceRichard PrinceRichard Prince

I was first introduced to Richard Prince when I was in New York and he had an exhibit at the Guggenheim. I was drawn to the large scale joke painting which were witty and in some people could find them to be inappropriate. I just found them hilarious and made me want to tell them to people as jokes myself. I also really enjoyed Prince’s his Nurse series. I know some people do not like this series because of the unknown, a little morbid and slightly erotic undertones. I found it there meaning, thought provoking, and the expression by Prince were very in your face.

Take notice of the Banksy Kate Moss portrait obviously inspired by Warhols Marilyn Monroe.  I’ve been hearing more and more stories of Banksy peices being stolen off building and sold on ebay from a few thousand pounds. This seems like such a small price to pay when:

On April 27th 2007, a new record high for the sale of Banksy’s work was set with the auction of the work ‘Space Girl & Bird’ fetching £288,000 ($576,000), around 20 times the estimate at Bonhams of London.

What is happening currently with banksy reminds me of what happened with Jean-Michel Basquiat in NYC during the 80’s after he met Warhol. People were stealing his work from the street to sell.

As well check out how when buffing the walls in the UK they have started painting around Banksy peaces, encredable.
