The 30-day-art-exhibition led to the, A Better San Jose Peaceful Rally. A 2-hour-rally addressing topics of San Jose’s youth homelessness, parolee homelessness, education, and the lack of solutions from local officials.
This exhibition for the Winter of 2021, will feature a 3-day art sale of prints and originals of C-Note’s work. For the past Six-years his works have changed lives, saved lives, made history in the Fashion World, and raised millions of dollars.
Colored Girl Warholed is a 2015 work which uses a highlighted version of his 2009, Wax on paper, Colored Girl. Colored Girl Warholed is a work that was inspired by Andy Warhol’s 1962 work, Four Marylins. Six months after C-Note made prints available of this work, Warhol’s Four Marilyns sold at Christie’s for $36 million.
