Art Alley seems anything buy uppity, but I can easily see it becoming uppity. When I think of bohemian street artists I always think of Jean-Michel Basquiat. Basquiat was essentially a homeless teenage drug addict running with the SAMO crew in Lower Manhattan during the late 1970's who couldn't hardly give away his paintings - much less sell them - but then he met Warhol. Warhol made his art "Uppity" and the world changed for him. The last Basquiat I saw sold went for $14.9 million at auction.
Is art uppity? Should it be? Does it get better or worse when it becomes uppity? It becomes worth a lot more money when it becomes uppity. Is it better when it becomes worth more money or is it still exactly the same?
