Lessons in Excellency: Artist Scott Campell @ Vice Gallery in Mexico City

Applauding artist Scott Campbell‘s outstandingly Excellent reaction to the installation of his recent sold out show of works cut from $100 bills at Vice Gallery in the Roma neighborhood of Mexico City. Via Adam Bryce of Slamxhype: “A few weeks ago we mentioned the upcoming solo show of Scott Campbell at Mexico’s Vice Gallery. We were pretty excited to see new works from the hugely popular artist, one of our favourites, but also one of the world’s most in demand contemporary artists. As expected with a Scott Campbell show, the works sold out opening night, but the show didn’t end there. Campbell had issues with the way the gallery executed and handled the show, and after seeing no genuine comeback from the owner, the NYC Tattoo come fine artist took his entire sold out show to the sidewalk and lit fire to it! A lesson to all gallery owners to show the upmost respect its artists! If Scott wasn’t held in high enough regard by us already, he’s just boosted his stock ten-fold.” Agreed.
