Street artist launches two surprise art exhibits, one at MoMA and the other at the Met
Bootleg postcards with the artist's work were also left in the museum gift shops.
NEW YORK, NY.- Brooklyn-based Street Artist "Lambros" opened his own Art Exhibits at both the MET, and the MOMA this past weekend. Over six pieces of Art were put on display, some as large as 2 x 4 ft. Bootleg postcards with the artist's work were also left in the museum gift shops. The postcards were made to look like official Gallery merchandise.

The art was removed from the Museum walls, but the conflict now becomes what to do with it. Each piece of art is inscribed with the name of it's intended owner. The high-profile list of recipients include Charles Saatchi, Glenn D. Lowry, Larry Gagosian, Iwan Wirth and rapper Jay- Z ; to name a few.

Whether or not the Museums are legally obligated to return them to anyone remains a question. The scandal surrounding these six pieces of art, already grants them immense value, infamy, and an unknown fate.

"Lambros"
"It's OK to break the rules in a broken system." A profound concept that echoes throughout the work of the cunning young street artist known as Lambros. His "inspiring" messages are often juxtaposed with a devious wit and aggressive mentality that are a direct reflection of his environment and personal life. Having mastered a wide range of artistic styles and creative mediums allows him to communicate with his audience in a powerful way. In this precarious time, his art serves as a beacon of light while restoring balance to the street art movement.
