On a rainy evening a few weeks ago I met up with some friends (all artists + a midwife) to go check out an exhibition. Something we would have done countless times before, only this exhibition was different.
Some time last year one of my friends got word photo’s of his work were being printed on canvas and sold through a gallery (his work being a stenciled image painted outdoors). He looked into it and found out the work had been sold, possibly more than once and the particular photograph was a very closely cropped image showing no contextual information other than it being on a concrete textured wall.
