Addison Stone Memorabilia

Cave of Faces
an Addison Stone
exclusive tank top


MEMORABILIA for Addison Stone

Not long after young artist, Addison Stone's controversial Project #53 aka Film of the Theft of the Self-Portrait of Addison Stone was released, Addison's early work, Cave of Faces, was immortalized in tank top form. It sold like hot cakes and experienced another burst of sales upon her unexpected death. Unfortunately, the tank top had a limited run and no longer is available. However, a few have been found on eBay fetching auction prices in the thousands.


A bit about the painting...


SKpades: Oookay, then explain this ginormzee painting? Everyone is talking about it.

AS: Cave of Faces. I didn't know it would grow so big.

SKpades: Yeah, last week when they put it up in front of the auditorium, everyone was like, "Errrmerrgaahhd! Whoa! It must be, like twelve feet high!"

AS: Yeah, I love it. From down the hall, it looks organic right? Like something from nature. Then as you come closer, your eyes pick out those faces, which makes it more interactive. Not natural, but social.

The Unfinished Life of Addison Stone
by Adele Griffin
Amazon | Goodreads

Two-time National Book Award finalist Adele Griffin offers an ingenious fictional take on the "oral history" celebrity bio that defined a bestselling genre: Edie, American Girl by Jean Stein and George Plimpton. In presenting herself as interviewer and curator of memories, Adele paints the portrait of a tragic young celebrity who allegedly committed suicide—presented in a series of brief first-person recollections—that ultimately results in the solving of a murder.

Adele's words: "From the moment she burst into the downtown art scene, seventeen-year-old Addison Stone was someone to watch. Her trademark subversive street art and her violent drowning left her fans and critics craving to know more about this brilliant wild-child who shone so bright and was gone too soon. By means of more than one hundred interviews with those who knew her best—including close friends, family, teachers, mentors, art dealers, boyfriends, and critics—I have retraced the tumultuous path of Addison's life, with research that sheds new evidence on what really happened the night of July 28, 2013. With photo inserts and previously unpublished supplemental material."
