Greg Lamarche is one of those people that has more talent in his pinky than most do in their entire body. You might know Greg as the NY legend SPone, but today his focus is on gallery and commercial work. Having worked with companies like Mass Appeal, Juxtapoz and Zoo York, most of Greg’s work is intricately cut out collages. However, the man can still handle a can of paint when the need strikes. All hail the letter king!

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.
