Eric Doeringer, Bootleg "Damien Hirst" Paintings With The Real Thing
You can use the search box on my site, or on James's, to see how often we have written about Eric Doeringer. We are big fans.
He packed up his work and confronted Mr. Weiss, who admitted he had called the police. He said that he didn't like "seeing people walking around with tiny paintings," while he was paying high rent for his gallery and, "trying to sell $30,000 paintings."
When Doeringer told him he was certainly going to let everyone he knew in the art world hear about what he had done, Weiss said, "If that's the way you want to play it, I'll call the police whenever I see you anywhere."
I think 24th Street needs more of art like Eric's not less.
Eric has posted his account on his website.
The New York Times published an article on the Eric's adventure on Saturday.
