Urban Project Lets You Purchase, Own New York City Street Art
Wall-(m)Art sells and frames graffiti in its designated outdoor locale
A modern New York art gallery has hit the streets of the city, and anyone with $150 to auction off can own a piece of it. Unlike most modern art purchases, the new possession will not be riding home with you. Rather, a personalized plaque will be resurrected in your honor and you’ll be knighted with a nifty ‘proof of ownership’ title.
Wall-m(Art) is a new company that lets the public purchase street graffiti from the walls of the city. Fine art or vandalism – whatever you choose to call it – that covers subways, urban walls and street corners is officially available to anyone who wants to stake their claim as one of the lucky firsts to own the one-of-a-kind work.
