MSCHF sells off 1000 copies of Andy Warhol’s ‘Fairies’

The tricks and treats of the season have all been doled out as we step into November. But it wasn’t only Halloween that saw disguises in abundance: 999 paintings were also masquerading as something they weren’t. Brooklyn-based art collective MSCHF was stirring up their namesake mischief by reproducing just under a thousand copies of Andy […]

Ai-Da the artist robot and AI’s place in art
