If you are a lover of street art, the show is definitely worth checking out. If you are a collector of street art, you’re not going to be too fond of this show. Some of these doctored photo canvases are selling for upwards of $8,000! Is the gallery delusional or are they just trying to capitalize on the stupidity of inexperienced buyers? I am not really sure which it is but I assure you if $8,000 is your contemporary/street art budget, I can hook you up for that kind of money. Hell, you can get some type of work of art from Banksy, arguably the most famous street artist in the world, for a cheaper price!

Not all prices in the gallery will make your butt hole hurt, however. I invite you to form your own opinion at the Dorien Grey Gallery, located at 437 East 9th Street at Avenue A.
Art by Screwtape. Reasonably priced!
“Street Artists Unite!” runs through August 5, 2012.
