Quik – Titled "Graffiti Never Dies". Aerosol, paint marker, & acrylic on NYC Paper Alert. 2015. Measures approx 11" — 17" Inches on light card stock. Signed.
Lin 'QUIK' Felton is a painter of African American descent born in Queens, NY 1958. QUIK as a subway graffiti painter was recognized for his satirical and arrogant comic imagery, as well as the ability to post his tag and masterpieces upon each subway line numbering in the thousands.
After studying 3 years at PRATT Institute and PARSONS School of Design, QUIK was recognized by Yaki Kornblit, a renowned Amsterdam art dealer in 1982 via the efforts of FUTURA 2000 and the momentum created by the SOUL ARTISTS painting association. Despite dabbling and attempting a career with the computer giant IBM, QUIK had found his calling in the creative arts rather than the financial accounting required to proliferate nuclear weapons and strengthen the American Defense Department.
Following a successful introduction into the art world via Holland's tremendous support, QUIK eschewed the USA for the most part finding Europe's admirable attempts for racial and social equality more to his liking. The racial tensions and social inequalities present within the United States is a recurrent and raging theme in QUIK's work. When asked in regard to his thematic development and professional career now in it's fourth decade, QUIK simply replies, "I paint sounds, I paint the Blues."
The Blues is not all QUIK paints, as one can revel in his cynical juxtaposition of cartoon characters; romantic and brooding pinup girls and naturally the graffiti lettering that has now made him world famous after participating in hundreds of museum and gallery exhibitions. To balance his relentless energies in the commercial art world QUIK has a respected notoriety for working alongside and instructing high school and university students throughout western Europe.
QUIK's work can be found listed within the archives of the Studio Museum of Harlem; The Museum of the City of New York; the Groninger Museum in the Netherlands and several other distinguished collections.

Let op. Sommige gedeeltes op deze pagina zijn automatisch vertaald.Won lot. Paid nearly $7000 USD just to be told "oops we don't have it but why not buy a different one for $12000 USD. catawiki is just a link to DIRTY'S website. Where's my compensation..Let op. Sommige gedeeltes op deze pagina zijn automatisch vertaald.Yes, it is true that we posted a painting we thought was in inventory and was sold. We did try to offer a replacement. BUT it was the same value and NOT more, YOU asked us for a $12,000 painting for $1200 USD? How can we sell a painting for a 90%discount? don't understand why 5 months later this feedback now? at that time all was resolved? Also, what compensation? We never took your money and Catawiki returned your payment immediately. Below is your email. The Batgirl is a $12K painting and 3 times larger than the Joker.
I have been looking through your website and am interested in the Batgirl painting by Seen.
I understand that many of his paintings do not reach there reserve as there are dozens for sale at any time which reduces there value today and in the future. I have bid on a few but the Joker was the only one I have bid up to it’s reserve as it did seem to have that wow factor. Batgirl would be a poor substitute but has some appeal.
I’d be willing to go to $1200 USD, including postage to Miami.
Let me know if this is acceptable and I will arrange payment?
I just realised I purchased Bad Gangster, Sonic, from you previously and I and the kids do like it which gives me confidence to buy from you again.
