We met in the Spring of 2007, and at the time no one had heard of us or our art. Okay, perhaps a few. But not many. And today, the two friends/creative collaborators AVONE and TMNK aka NOBODY, have their work collected all over the world. And much of their success has come without the help of the standard and often stagnant old guard ART Gods, the galleries and the dealers.
The each have their own style, Avone markets his work under his Destroy and Rebuild brand. But together they have created collaborative paintings that are sought out by collectors worldwide. Three of their collaborations are featured in TMNK’s current POP UP exhibition MODERN URBANISMS.
While preparing to pop up in New York’s Lower Eastside (LES), New York Street Artist TMNK’s friends have been pop’n up showin’ love and hang’n out.

Carnegie Hall - (72″ x 60″ Enamel, Acrylic, silkscreen and collage on canvas with gallery sides) – sold
New York Street Art Bad Boys TMNK + AVONE of Destroy Rebuild NYC have done it again. They’ve just closed a deal to sell their painting Carnegie Hall to a prominent art collector in Portugal. The collector has been following the two for several years, and has quietly been adding their unique blend of street art to his vast collection. In a phone conversation today, the collector said this is one piece he had to have.
The two artists, who began by selling their works on the streets in SoHo, have made a name for themselves and collectors around the world are taking notice. The famed New York hotel Gansevoort recently purchased a painting from the two artists for the Lobby of it’s Meat Packing District location, as well as another for the recently opened Park Avenue Gansevoort.
