Schoony has partnered with Distassi Art to create three runs of exclusive prints. ‘Boots’, ‘Girl Bruiser’ and ‘Reflector’ are limited to only ten prints each, with one artist’s proof per work. They are bold, with Schoony’s signature blend of powerful imagery and attention to detail.
Distassi Art is proud to announce two limited edition silkscreen prints, marking Diaz’s debut transatlantic partnership. ‘Tolerate Civilization’ sees the New Yorker explore notions of society, with various historical references. ‘Because War is just a 3 Letter Word’ sets military imagery against blooming flowers.
The contemporary art market is soaring, with some of the world’s best investments to be found on the walls of prominent collectors. Given the economic turbulence of the last twenty years, art has remained a stable market - seeing gains where others have dipped.
Street art and politics are closely intertwined, whether that be in terms of inspiration, identity or institution. In its heyday, the New York graffiti scene was subversive; an open call to arms for all those who felt marginalised, unheard and ignored.
2018 was a bumper year for the contemporary art market, showing significant growth quarter on quarter from May 2017. Most significantly, it marked the first fiscal year in which the market’s main indicators were all positive: the global auction turnover grew by around 20%, the rate of unsold art remained steady at 39%, the volume of total transactions grew by 17% and the price index of contemporary art grew by 18%
