Always interesting keeping an occasional eye on ebay for ‘urban art’ as it tends to be called, especially now the market bubble seems to have well and truly burst.
Came across this yesterday though, and seemed worth blogging as it’s so odd.
A piece by ‘Teddy Girl’, a ‘Notorious Urban Terror Artist’ out of Bristol, with seemingly glowing reviews in this ebay item.
Teddy Girl is one of the most secret Urban artists, worse than Banksy although rumor has it that they have met and combined on projects before, emerging from the Bristol urban art scene but mainly working selling and exhibiting in Europe, rumors of a forth coming solo exhibition in London later in the year is an exciting thought, so grab the new big thing now…. Described as the Sexist thing to come out of the Bristol Art Scene
Whilst anyone with photoshop and a scalpel has been able to pitch up and claim to be an ‘urban artist’ in recent years , this really does seem to be the most ballsy pitch for celebrity out of nowhere yet.
The painting could be quite a good deal though, given what else comes as part of the auction
Comes with Post Card Signed Proof of Purchase, and Nick Walker and Banksy.
Interesting times these, on the one hand the whole Banksy thing has opened up ‘being an artist’ to a whole new range of people, which is probably no bad thing. On the other hand where’s it all going to end. Or perhaps the question is when?
As for Teddy Girl, no idea. If she’s got your interest though, her Myspace seems to be here.
