The estimated amount of money grossed this afternoon by KAWS during the sale of his UPS AND DOWNS print set. The portfolio of 10 prints had a sticker price of $24,000 and was limited to an edition of 100 (+ 20 Artist Proofs). KAWS opens up two concurrent shows this Saturday in NYC at Galerie Perrotin and Mary Boone. Dude is killing it.
Anthony Haden Guest did a nice interview with Richard Stratton for Standard Culture. That got me digging, and as a result you’ve got something fun to watch.
“A documentary chronicling the life of author Richard Stratton, from his early experiments with marijuana in suburban Massachusetts to his ultimate entry into the world of high volume, international hashish and marijuana trade. His involvement in the drug market, including the shipment of 7 tons of hashish from war-riddled Beirut into New York Harbor, led to his arrest and conviction to 25 years in maximum-security prison. This video, through re-enactments, stock footage, score and interview, tells the unbelievable story.”
