Kostabi quickly gained prominence in the downtown scene as a gifted young talent with a Surrealist bent to the prevailing Post-Pop of the day. Possibly known more for his character than his work at times, Kostabi shared an artist-as-brand factory concept with Koons, Warhol and Haring, but carried an often impenetrable sarcasm within his creations.

Although lacking Kostabi’s ubiquitous faceless everyman that populates the majority of his works, “Put Your Money Where Your Mouth Is” represents the quick pun/morality tale common to his works. —Courtesy of Doyle
