Who in New York City doesn't have $150 or so kicking around that they want to blow on something crazy? I mean, we're all trust fund kids and Russian oligarchs at this point, right?
Wall-(m)Art A curious splash of color in the concrete jungle?
So thank God for Wall-(m)Art, a mysterious online gallery/performance art project/racket that will take any graffiti you see on the street, frame it, and put up a plaque declaring its new owner: you! Shell out from about $100 to $300 and you can make like a dog and metaphorically pee all on your favorite street art in the city.
So far the company has sold four pieces to friends -- two have been framed in Williamsburg (ugh), the other two in Bushwick (ughhhhhhh) -- and one to the Voice. We purchased the cheapest work available -- a $111 job titled Ouch, Charlie, Ouch that features a sketch of half of Charlie Chaplin's face -- to see if Wall-(m)Art would make good on its promises.More »
