Wooster Collective Anniversary Exhibition...

Yesterday was the last day of the 10 Year Anniversary exhibition for the Wooster Collective, so we went to the Jonathan LeVine to check it out.

The Wooster Collective are a New York couple who started a blog 10 years ago to document all the street art they saw around the city. Now it's grown into a huge blog and they've had books published and held exhibitions and given talks (the were at Offset a couple of years ago).

For the 10 year anniversary exhibition they had invited lots prolific street artists from around the world to take part, so there were pieces from Faile, Shepard Fairey, Space Invader, London Police, Lady Aiko, Buff Monste, Ben Eine, How & Nosm, JR and loooooads more...

 It was great that so many of the artists were people who's work I've seen around New York and a lot of them had done murals on the Bowery wall.

My favourites were, as ever, the Faile pieces...

All of the pieces were for sale, ranging from a few hundred dollars to $100,000 for a set of three Obey pieces (surprisingly they hadn't sold yet!).

It'll be interesting to see what street art will be like in another 10 years and whether it'll be as expensive and collectable.
