From 22 September – 30 October Sotheby’s will exhibit photographs and portraits of rock stars at their S2 gallery in London in a new selling exhibition entitled Rock Style.
The exhibition precedes the rock and pop sale which will take place on 29 September and has been organised by New York dealer Jeffrey Deitch and fashion designer Tommy Hilfiger.
Los Angeles street artist and a favourite of MyArtBroker, Shepard Fairey has created six brand new paintings specifically for the exhibition. The portaits are priced upwards of £25,000 and include celebrities like Sid Vicious, Debbie Harry, David Bowie and Jimi Hendrix.
Apparently, Fairey’s recent arrest has not has not held up the production of his paintings, according to director of S2 gallery Fru Tholstrup.
