In a deal that closed late Friday evening, the visual artist, ultra QUALITY™ co-founder, and polymath sold "here, there" to a Detroit-metro area based private equity firm for $2,200 USD.
While this is Pettway's first publicized sale, the artist has an ever-growing number of private collectors who will be notified.
"This transaction is of particular importance, as every publicized sale directly drives value back to all collectors," Pettway said in a statement. "My price just went up, but so has the value of all of my work. It's a win-win!"
