Yep. Stolen. Right off the wall.
I just heard the unbelievable news from Perihelion and Pravus gallery owner, Amy Young, that a skateboard deck art piece by Daniel Martin Diaz (pictured above) was stolen this past First Friday (September 4th).
The work was a part of Pravus Gallery's "DECK III" show that featured over 50 artists.
Diaz's piece was priced at $3500.
"No one saw anything!" Says Young. "We're just hoping with enough word, maybe recovery will happen."
