I am looking for information on Kai Aspire. Blue Chip?

http://kaiart.com

Any personal dealings/experiences would be appreciated also post any pics or information relating to KAI. I know there is a following. I am aware that his uncle is Thierry Guetta AKA Mr Brainwash. LAB ART gallery is very slow to respond with details on this artist so any help would be great. Thank You.

Retna actually had a fudge load of Shepard Fairey OG stuff hanging in his studio. Really cool rugs and stuff.

In all honesty, if I were to "invest" in LA-based artists, I'd continue to invest in Shepard.

I'd also sell all of your RETNA. Bad investment.

Defiantly not an investment, I actually like the way this piece feels in the room. It is a powerful piece!

I wonder if he is on the same side of the family as Space Invader, another Brainwash "family member"

Pretty fresh stuff, can't remember the last time I saw skulls, Louis Vuitton logos, or Coca Cola bottles in street art before

If you search the copyright at the bottom of Mr. Brainwash.com you will find that it was registered and is owned by Banksy. My curiosity peaked in leu of all of the enormus real estate purchases taking place in LA and now in NY. Follow the money 8)
