  • In Short


    detail of the present lot



    “My work evolved from looking at graffiti, vandalism, the violence of tags in the streets and other forms of visual aggression, but as is more and more the case in my work, my painting has become more formal, more abstract ... I think of it in terms of space, depth, punctuation or color, as I imagine artists have been doing for centuries.”

    Sterling Ruby
