If staying attuned to the mores and modes and ever-variant idiomatic codes of street art is your thing, and if owning fresh exemplars of the same might fall within your sphere of interests as well, then Robin Grearson’s Street Art Pop-Up Store should sound enticing.
Grearson, who recently curated a show of works by Criminy Johnson, a.k.a QRST, at the Active Space, has decided to transform her studio into an art shop of sorts during Bushwick Open Studios, promising therein a wide range of drawings, paintings, prints, posters and the like by about 20 different street artists, all priced to sell—items will be tagged in dollar amounts ranging from 0 to no more than 300.
So if you’ve been looking for something affordable by Christ Stain, Nathan Pickett, Quel Beast, Daniel Feral, Elle, Enzo & Nio, General Howe and many others, take note of the dates and times and related details from Grearson’s press release below.
(Or if you’re looking for some bespoke facial hair, pay particular attention to the line about Moustache Man.)
