The best advice for those who have art in their homes is to be leery of who you let into your residence, especially contractors with whom you don't have an established relationship.

Norman Girardot | Posted 04.04.2016 | Arts
Norman Girardot

With regard to the hip aesthetic sensibility of Warhol, Haring, and Basquiat, Finster's works are sometimes judged to be simply unconscious folksy variations on the New Yorkers' ironic pop-cartoon aesthetic of commercial marketability in an age of ubiquitous mechanical reproduction. This seems, however, too much like an interpretive judgement.
