Nah, we’re  two peas from a different pod, as different as Day and Night. But I was glad to see that long after his tragic death my brotha was still doing the damn thang as he exceeded expectations with the sales at a recent Christie’s auction. Although his Brother Sausage did not sell.

Post War and Contemporary Art…

and a Six Figure Negro. Inspired by a recent visit to Christie’s Auction House, where the works of Warhol, Basquiat and other are being auctioned this week for crazy dollars. What, I’m supposed to wait until I’m dead to be part of the fun?  So we created our own Post War and Contemporary Art auction on ebay.

From Ebay to Christie’s?

That’s what I pondered as I spent the afternoon peeping the Post War Contemporary Art at Christie’s today. One day right? Hundred’s of thousands? Millions? Going once, going twice, sold to the gentleman from Japan for 2.5 Million. :-)

It was cool hang’n out with the big league art auction set, and shouts to one of my collectors, PB for inviting me to join him.

Andy, Basquiat, I’m coming to join yall baby. Yo Christie’s, hollar at your boyyyeeee. – TMNK
