Matt Leines is an extremely talented artist and I couldn’t have been happier to find some images from his sketchbook on Book By Its Cover’s Sketchbook series.
The whole Bono-fueled (RED) movement has finally made its way into the contemporary art world, and for this instance I couldn’t be happier. Why? New Yorkers will finally have the chance to see three Banksy Masterpieces in the flesh. Included in the Sotheby’s auction at Larry Gagosian’s Chelsea digs, is the vandalized phone booth that Banksy installed on a street in the UK in 2005. If memory serves correct about this piece, an old lady remarked that crazy art students were always out of control. Another is a defaced Damien Hirst Pharmaceutical (spot) painting, tited ‘KEEP IT SPOTLESS’. Expect this lot (34) to break any auction record Banksy bidders had set previously. The auction, which is on Valentines Day includes many other notable lots (veritably a who’s who’s of contemporary art), including Jeff Koons, Damien Hirst, Takashi Murakami, Andreas Gursky, Tim Noble & Sue Webster, and Marc Quinn. All very impressive and on view in early February.
The other Banksy’s after the jump
…Really isn’t faile at all. This is the art of Greg Gossel. Someone once said Imitation is the best form of flattery, but how flattering is it really for the flatterer?

Fuckin’ Revs is elusive. His early graffiti career was accompanied by the moniker ‘Revlon’ and if you flip through the Spray Can Art you can see early examples of his work. In the middle nineties he cut his name down to Revs and bombarded NYC above ground with Cost and below ground with diatribes and confessions. Then, Revs went into hiding. When he resurfaced his work had evolved. Using construction grade steel he now does installation pieces, permanence in a temporary environment. Luckily for us, Jake Dobkin has been making a concerted effort to document all of Revs new work on Streetsy. Enjoy.
Opening this Saturday at Robert Berman in Los Angeles, Will Rise is a unique group show featuring members of the legendary L.A. graffiti crew AWR. Each of the eleven members (KRUSH, SKREW, SABER, PUSH, REVOK, ZES, RETNA, RIME, SEVER, EWOK, REYES) painted six, 4′ x4′ wood panels that will be displayed floor to ceiling. The show looks to be colorful and dope, so if you are in the Los Angeles area stop by.
