Sometime last September, a piece by renowned guerilla artist Banksy appeared on Portobello Road in West London. Unlike the fate of most street art, the owner of the building decided to sell the wall – that’s right the WALL, on eBay. The bidding ended on 01-14 , and after 69 bids the wall fetched over 400 grand. To top it off, the winner has to pay to remove, transport and replace the wall.
Poor, elusive Banksy probably won’t be seeing a dime from this deal, but I am sure the buzz this sale has created won’t hurt his gallery prices.
Having cleared up all his legal troubles following his high profile graffiti arrest under former Mayor Rudy Giuliani, the artist formerly known as ESPO is back in the book biz. Steve Powers releases “Steve Powers is a Studio Gangster”.
With the publication of Steve Powers Is A Studio Gangster, Powers records 5 years of paintings that distill the complete range of human emotion into readily recalled and related memes. These visual archetypes are aptly described by Powers as a synthesis of word and image to create a new emotional revelation .
You have no doubt seen Steve’s ESPO work around NYC, Philly and other cities – not to mention his stuff that is revamping Coney Island, so pick up his book and see what a yappy, giant with Kid and Play hair can do. If you like the book, visit Steve’s website and pick up some of his art work.
Most likely inspired by Death’s appearance in 1991′s Bill and Ted’s Bogus Journey, or his more recent cameo’s on Family Guy, Worth1000.com ran their 2nd Annual Death Takes a Holiday contest.

Civilization has been found on a new planet that Japanese scientist have named RPM1200!! Nah, just kidding ya’! RPM1200 is a cityscape designed by Japanese artist Enoki Chu. Standing 11 feet tall and with a diameter of 15 feet, this is one impressive sculpture. You may not be able to tell from the picture, but this entire piece is composed of shiny metal junk. That’s right, polished drill bits, used machine parts and other everyday Sanford and Son style crap, dummy! To see more work by Chu, visit chuenoki.com
