Big thanks to everyone who came out to the Art on Paper Fair in NYC this past weekend. We were showing alongside 80 international galleries and it was an honor to have Chuck's work on view alongside Picasso, KAWS, Alex Katz, Jonas Wood and so many other amazing artists.

It was nice seeing so many familiar faces from Chuck's last NYC show and it was great getting Chuck's work in front of new fans and collectors. Big ups to the folks who camped out in the snow, the black variant of "The Sphinx" was well worth the wait. All copies of "The Sphinx" sold out as soon as doors opened and I'm happy to say that all archive prints, panels and copies of the Helikon book sold out by the end the weekend as well (mostly to new collectors unfamiliar with Chuck's work.)

Here's a look at the custom wallpaper we had made for the event, which matches the background on "The Sphinx". Custom wallpaper is something we'll be doing more in the future at our gallery shows and events, stay tuned!

The Semele and Sphinx panels sold on Thursday, everything else sold out during the rest of the weekend. Interestingly enough, the folks who bought the archive panels at market rate were all new collectors, none of whom had heard of Chuck before but they loved the work and thought it was reasonably priced. Considering that there was a Picasso across the hall for six figures, they were absolutely correct!

Thx for the updates!

Hope the guy who paid $2k for #2 at Chucks show and was after Semele as his #1, saw that more we’re sold last week. I love it!!

Semele at $3k is still under valued tho. Ken was being generous.
