"Self-Portrait 1989" by GNAY
Who is GNAY? The World Art Institute in Frankfurt has tasked me to find out everything I can about this mysterious artist and his meteoric rise to fame. Like Banksy, no photos of this secretive artist can be found. This crude charcoal sketch from around 1989 is about as close as we are likely to come. I’m sure the 80’s stash is long gone, but there is no hiding that confident steely gaze that says, “Are you talking to me?” We best tread lightly, as it appears GNAY is a serious player and not to be trifled with. This is GNAY.
