Notable pieces include Warhol’s “Thirty Are Better Than One” a collage of thirty Mona Lisas and Koon’s “Pink Panther”.
In regards to negative reviews, Brant explained, “I pay attention: if people are critically against somebody, that’s a sign to me that there’s some interest there, that there’s an interesting statement there. IF I hear that somebody’s getting really bad reviews, that sometimes attracts me because historically, many great artists have gotten very bad reviews.”
