        GRAFFITI JACKET

      New York: Original Artwork. c.1984. Marker pen, ink and sticker on a black leather jacket. circa 1984. An extraordinary artwork serving as a "who's who" of the downtown New York City art and music scene in the 1980s. Each artist has hand-drawn on or signed parts of the jacket. Basquiat draws a crown and "s" in gold and signs Jean Michel with a crown above and further "s" in sliver; Futura 2000 signs in pink along the bottom edge at the rear and draws his spraycan character to the front; Shadi (David Scilken) artist and vocalist with The Young And The Useless contributes a large drawing to the rear titled "Death Rain" signed and dated 1984; Haring contributes a neon green Three Eyed Smiling Face sticker; Revolt draws a large character to the left shoulder and sleeve; Cey Adams draws a spraycan and signs in various places. Further contributions from Ad-Rock (Adam Horowitz of the Beastie Boys); Fab 5 Freddy; Kano (Dante Ross) who went on to be one of the most influential A&R representatives in hip hop working for Tommy Boy, Elektra and Warner; Crazy Legs (founding member and later president of The Rock Steady Crew); Zephyr; James TOP (Jee II); Stash (Josh Franklin); Delta II; RB163; Energy (NRG); Ezo; Africa 131 / Cmor; Jigs City (Julie Ashcroft) and many more. Many of the artists featured either went on to reach the top of their game or in the case of Basquiat, Haring and Shadi died tragically young having already done so. Provenance: Joy "Joystick" Bouldin. Joy was a key figure in the New York club scene of the early 1980s. Aged 18, she arrived in New York and, eschewing her plans to go to college, found work at the Mudd Club. Here she was befriended by Andy Warhol, who introduced her to his inner circle, including Jean-Michel Basquiat (for whom she modelled) and Keith Haring. In 1982 she quit her job in a law firm to "work the elevator" at Danceteria. Deciding who to let in to the private club gave her a key position at the forefront of the emerging culture of the time, positioned at the intersection between fashion, Pop Art, Hip Hop and graffiti. Like key door-people everywhere, Joy knew everyone and everyone knew her. She came up with the idea of having the best known and most applauded graffiti writers, pop artists and musicians tag or draw on her clothing as they came in and out of the club. In doing so she created a wearable original artwork merging fashion, art and music that now also serves as a significant historical document. Joy Bouldin sat for Jean-Michel Basquiat several times and was the subject of two of his major works, RED JOY (sold £1.5m Sothebys London 2013) and BIG JOY (sold £2.6m Phillips London 2012), paintings which hung in the artist's first major solo exhibition at Mary Boone Gallery in 1984.

The artwork was created by the artists during the course of the party. Provenance: Joy "Joystick" Bouldin. Joy was a key figure in the New York club scene of the early 1980s.

Downtown New York, became the catwalk for wearable art, the streets were dotted with Suzan Pitt's second-hand painted raincoats, Clayton (Patterson) Hats, the clubs were where the circles of fashion and art danced the night away and there could be no better adornment than a Warhol and Basquiat handbag the downtown version of the uptown (Hermes) clutch.Joy Bouldin sat for Jean-Michel Basquiat several times and was the subject of two of his major works, RED JOY (sold £1.5m Sothebys London 2013) and BIG JOY (sold £2.6m Phillips London 2012), paintings which hung in the artist's first major solo exhibition at Mary Boone Gallery in 1984.

        GRAFFITI DENIM JACKET

      New York: Original Artwork c.1984. Acrylic and ink on a denim Wrangler jacket (size 40). Painted circa 1984. Large "JoyStick" piece with character portrait and smaller "Revolt" piece underneath, to rear jacket panel. A classic Dr. Revolt burner with character portrait of Joy "Joystick" Bouldin. Authentic hand painted clothing from the early days of hip hop are exceptionally rare. Revolt began painting on New York subway trains in the late 1970's and continued throughout the 1980's. As a member of the RTW (Rolling Thunder Writers) he painted with artists such as IZ THE WIZ, ZEPHYR, QUIK and KEL. He appeared in the historic PBS documentary "Style Wars" and along with Zephyr created the iconic "WILD STYLE" mural used in film of the same name. Revolt has never stopped painting and his work is held in museums, galleries and private collections worldwide. He has been in commercial demand since the 1980's designing album covers for artists such as The Fun Lovin' Criminals and Grandmaster Flash and creating the classic "YO! MTV Raps" logo. Provenance: Joy "Joystick" Bouldin. Joy was a key figure in the New York club scene of the early 1980s.

In doing so she created a wearable original artwork merging fashion, art and music that now also serves as a significant historical document. In true graffiti spirit, the writers wanted to be seen and learning of Joy's legendary art coats were keen to have their name displayed at the hottest club in town. As a result Joy was gifted items of hand-painted clothing in the hope she would wear them out. This jacket by Revolt was once such item that she loved and wore regularly.

        GRAFFITI JACKET

      New York: Original Artwork. 1984. Keith Haring . . . actually got down on his knees because of my height and drew this [light bulb character]. I could feel him etching against my back. This is not an image that you see replicated if you were to look at [Haring's] body of work, so it really speaks to his improvisation and the spirit of where we were at that particular time on that night." - Joy Bouldin. Marker Pen and ink on a black leather jacket. 1984. An exceptional collaboration artwork. Keith Haring contributes three drawings, a dark green figure diving head first from the right lapel, a dark green snake on the left lapel and a larger light green dancing lightbulb man to the jacket back; Futura adds a large old school tag above Haring in white on the back, a spraycan character drawing underneath Haring on the right lapel, and the scribble tag in green on the left lapel; Fab 5 Freddy takes the left arm in green and dates his tag 1984; Cey draws a stylish "C" outline in silver, dated 1984 to the back and tags in silver on the left lapel; Kano (who went on to be one of the most influential A&R representatives in hip hop working for Tommy Boy, Elektra and Warner) draws a character and tags "Kano love" & "Fresh Kidd" in silver of the back of the right sleeve; Stash contributes several drawings to the back in green including a character and tv screen, also a "destiny" (DestroyEverySubwayTrainInNewYork) outline in green to the bottom left front and possibly the "joystick" outline in pink and green above (although this has futura-esque highlights and elements); Energy (NRG) and Africa131 (Cmor / Afrochild) also tag. There is a silver full body character underneath the front lapel and a couple of other tags that as yet we are unable to attribute.

      - Elisabeth Feilen, Emanuel Hegenbarth. Biographie und Œuvre zusammengestellt von Franz Hegenbarth; Recklinghausen 1984.] Hegenbarth studierte ab 1884 an der Kunstakademie in München. Nach zwei Jahren unterbrach er das Studium, um eine kaufmännische Ausbildung an der Handelsschule in Leipzig zu beginnen. 1892 nahm er das Studium in Berlin wieder auf und setzte es in München fort. Dort trat er der Tiermalklasse von Heinrich von Zügel, einem der Mitbegründer der Neuen Secession in Wien, bei. Ab 1901 lebte er als freischaffender Künstler in München. 1902 heiratete er Zügels älteste Tochter Anna Emilie. Hegenbarth, dessen Leitspruch „Bilde Künstler, rede nicht" war, da er größere Diskussionen über die Kunst nicht schätzte, erhielt 1903 einen Ruf an die Königlich Sächsische Akademie der Bildenden Künste in Dresden. Er wurde Professor für die dort neu eingerichtete Tiermalklasse. Von 1905 bis 1908 leitete er außerdem seinen jüngeren Vetter Josef Hegenbarth an, der später einer der bedeutendsten Zeichner und Illustratoren des 20. Jahrhunderts wurde.

        THE HUNT FOR RED OCTOBER (SIGNED FIRST EDITION)

      Naval Institute Press, Annapolis, Maryland 1984 - First printing with all points. Book Near Fine with a contemporary gift inscription on the end paper, light soiling to closed page block and spine ends gently pushed in. Dust jacket also Near Fine with a faint crease on the rear flap and light bends at the crown. INSCRIBED by Clancy on the half-title, "First Edition! Tom Clancy." Tom Clancy's thrilling debut novel. "The Hunt for Red October" is about Jack Ryan, a CIA analyst who attempts to help Soviet officers defect to the United States with a top secret nuclear submarine. Jack Ryan would return in numerous other Clancy novels, including "Patriot Games" and "Clear and Present Danger." Clancy hadn't been able to get the book published by any large publishing house, so he sent it to the Naval Institute Press (on a lark) who then agreed to publish it. Unsurprisingly, it has been their most successful published work of fiction. The book would become a best-seller after Ronald Reagan praised it as a "perfect yarn." "The Hunt for Red October" would go on to be adapted into a 1990 film, starring Sean Connery and Alec Baldwin. "Absolutely terrific: entertaining, suspenseful and masterfully written! superlative." (Contemporary Washington Times review). Very Good + in Near Fine. dust jacket. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy]
