Don’t miss this chance to take home a work by celebrated New York-based artist Frank Olt! Prof. Olt specializes in both ceramic work and painting. Now, a commissioned NYC Subway artist, he was formerly artist-in-residence at MoMA P.S.1, and his work has been exhibited nationally and internationally. The artist combines ceramics and painting to create unique hybrid pieces, often including the rich hues and layered elements seen in harmony within this work. An exquisite symphony of shape and color, this magnificent multimedia artwork will surely attain a place of honor within your collection, as his works are living in the homes of several billionaires.

Auction proceeds directly support MOCA’s mission to inspire new ways of thinking through the cultivation, exhibition, and interpretation of contemporary art.
50% of the winning bid directly supports the artist.

If this item will be shipped outside of Tucson, you will be contracted directly with an estimate before your account is settled.
