We got a photo of this lovely painting recently purchased by a Sheepshead Bites reader (who can reveal himself if he wishes, but I figured it best not to identify people with valuable art in their homes). This is an Alan Streets original streetscape of Coney Island.
Streets is a rising star in the contemporary art scene and has been compared to Picasso, van Gough, and Basquiat. A native of London, Streets is paranoid schizophrenic and uses his art as a form or therapy. His influences include New York graffiti, Hieronymus Bosch, and Salvador Dali.
