There were two great pieces by Zeus in today’s Urban Art Auction at Bonhams, both of which sold over estimate.
Image 1: Lot 44, Zeus, 3D Blue Sky, 2008, signed, mixed media relief sculpture on board, within a stencil spray painted perspex box frame, 92.5 x 92.5cm (36 7/16 x 36 7/16in). SOLD for £1,440 inclusive of Buyer’s Premium
Image 2: Lot 54, Zeus, Streetopoly, 2009, acrylic on paper mounted on board, 122.5 x 122.5cm (48 1/4 x 48 1/4in).SOLD for £2,160 inclusive of Buyer’s Premium
I remember when Zeus came to LA back in early 2009 and pasted up one of his Streetopolys on Melrose. It’s such a fun piece.
