The Devil is in the details.

Phil Frost 1997

Back in 1997 I met Phil Frost through a mutual friend, and stayed with him in NYC on my way to Egypt for an art history tour. We traded pieces, I gave him a small oil painting on rusted metal and he gave me this piece, which I have hanging in my home.

I was prompted to photograph and post this piece after reading an article in the New York Magazine’s art section, which questions what they believed to be a lost Basquiat, which people who are aware of Frosts work from that era will clearly see that it is an unfinished work of his.

Here is another Link to a work of Phil Frost’s from that era. Note the similarity between the “devil” on the door and Frosts characters from that era.
