Los Angeles-based artists Matt Gondek and Josh Mayhem have joined forces for a colorful sculpture, titled Anger Issues, based off of Donald Duck. Standing 12 inches tall, the sculptural figure receives Mayhem’s signature “blown away” effect, as strands of resin and layers of acrylic paint create gravity-defying drips that create the impression of a strong wind. Beginning Friday, raffle tickets for the piece will go on sale for 48 hours only. One winner will receive the one-of-a-kind customized sculpture.

Christie’s and the Andy Warhol Foundation are providing emergency relief to artists in need during the coronavirus pandemic with their sale “Andy Warhol: Better Days.” The collection is made up of 60 original photographs by Andy Warhol, who often used photography as a basis for his artwork. From self-portraits of the artist to images of landscapes and flowers he used for inspiration, each photograph was chosen for its ability to “transport the viewer to better days,” the foundation said.

Emerging Brooklyn-based artist B. Thom Stevenson recently launched a screen printed edition with interior design studio Wilder. Titled Working Hard In The Sun All Day, the 18 inch by 24 inch silkscreen was inspired by Stevenson’s memories of working with his dad and grandfather growing up — picking stones, clearing brush and bailing hay. The burnt orange tones contrast with black silhouettes of a man on a horse, birds in a tree and an owl perched upon a branch. The print is available in an edition of 50.
