Adrien Brody’s Starbucks Parody: It’s Art!

Geoffrey and I went out on a massive Art Crawl this past weekend and we saw the above-pictured posters up everywhere in the Chelsea Gallery District. Apparently, they are adverts for Adrien Brody’s new print series, Hooked. As you can see, it is a parody of the Starbucks brand logo, with the coffee merchant’s familiar Siren mascot holding a pistol to each of her temples. Lovely.

The prints debuted at David Benrimon Fine Art booth at the Art New York fair, which ran from May 3rd to 8th as part of Frieze week.

We saw them again on 20th Street, just outside the tunnel entrance to the Comme des Garcons Boutique. Here, street art/graffiti legend Hektad has already left his mark.

Anyone looking for an art bargain should get to peeling one of these suckers off the wall straight away, otherwise you can buy a proper print for just $25,000 (not a typo) at This Link!
