The hot ticket in the NYC art world this weekend is the debut of SHEPARD FAIREY's phenomenal new solo show, "E Pluribus Venom," opening Saturday nite at JONATHAN LEVINE GALLERY in Chelsea. Featuring a host of fresh & politically astute new works, the big pieces—the stars of the show—ranging in size from 2'x 3' to a whopping 11' x 16' are priced reasonably in the range of $8,000—$40,000. We mention this fact specifically because the bubble surrounding the so-called "street art" world has been inflating at such a rapid pace in the last year that it's refreshing to see a veteran of the genre like Shepard pacing himself on the financial front. Remember kids, all good things come to an end, and that $200,000 Banksy stencil you're holding onto can't last forever. It should also be noted that in keeping with his typically egalitarian approach, Shep has included a huge array of less expensive pieces of art (there are over 100 works in the show) with the least expensive prints priced at $125 bucks. Here's a sneek peek at our favorite new works from the show (all are stenciled/screened collage on canvas):
