We are a popular contemporary art boutique specializing in expertly chosen, blue chip prints, multiples, uniques, books, ephemera and merchandise at different price points, with a focus on the secondary market. Over the years, we have built a loyal following on Artsy, Artnet, 1stDibs and Artspace - but we have been selling fine art online before all of them. For the privacy of our clients and for ease in viewing, we typically unpublish works after they have sold - and we do not share sold prices.

"THE WORLD IS NOT CHANGING IF YOU DON'T SHOULDER THE BURDEN OF RESPONSIBILITY."
This skateboard was inspired by the artist’s installation ‘He Xie’, a group of 3,200 ceramic crabs installed at Washington D.C.’s Hirshhorn Museum in 2011. "Crabs" refers to a slang word used for internet censorship in China. It plays on the similar sounding between ‘river crab’ and ‘harmonious’. Brand new in original shrink wrap.
“I think there is a responsibility for any artist to protect freedom of expression.”
– Ai Weiwei
“Without freedom of speech there is no modern world, just a barbaric one."― Ai Weiwei
This photo is part of ‘Study in Perspective’ where Ai Weiwei openly attacks the regime in place by de-sacralizing one of the country’s most iconic and controversial sites: Tiananmen square.
What is clearly considered an ‘act of rebellion’, becomes an opportunity to denounce the total control of the Party over Chinese citizens.
