New Brow: Contemporary Underground Art

I just recently came across this trailer for a new movie coming out titled "New Brow"- speaking about the Contemporary Underground art world. Have a look, i think its a great summary and introduction to what is happening in this powerful and growing art world.

Get your sugar coated hands on these beauties.

Sometimes with international shipments you just have to cross your fingers the artwork will arrive on time, after waiting patiently for the custom charges to clear, we finally have two new pieces in the gallery that were originally part of the Candy Coated Exhibition.

Have a look below, they are both still up for grabs so just let us know if your interested.
