Apparently Tristan Eaton's print sale via a gallery got canned because somebody told the gallery to do that to him.

Cleon is a dirty rat and admits it via dm on instagram about pulling the print. He apparently has some stake in the gallery that pulled the print and wants to get away from the "street art thing"

Dat don't make any sense. Dat gallery is all about street/urban art. I do find it funny dat cleon has more pull than Tristan tho.

Its that Fairey connection and the movie stars buying his paintings that give him a big head.

Even Shep embraces street art.

Cleon's POV seems more logical. Artists should be competitors, not buddies. It's a business. Though his excuse seems like BS, unless he took the 'Beyond the Streets' title a bit to literal.

Def competitors. If I have a few hunge burning a hole in my pocket, I'm like, "do I buy this print or the goldenshowerrapeybondagemurderporn print?"

unless they are trying to land the same job/commission, fine artists are NOT competitors, especially two artists whose work isn’t remotely similar.

Cleon is just a twatwaffle

i mean technically they are "competitors".

If for example, they both share a hardcore fan and that fan has a $300 budget to spend on a print and both those artists release something on the same day/week, that person definitely has to choose.

His work is lazy uninspired recycled garbage anyhow. Always amazes me people actually collected his “art”. With out his Fairey connection he’d be a nobody.
