Agraffiti: Unusual collection of #Graffiti gets an unexpected home:

Agraffiti art promoter gives his unusual collection an unexpected home:
"vintage spray-paint cans, some more than 50 years old, in a cabinet from Crate & Barrel. It’s a colorful installation of memorabilia — the graffiti fan’s version of collect-and-trade baseball cards — that Damien Hirst might envy.

The dining room sideboard may be an ornate antique bought from his mother, who runs estate sales in Bethesda, Md. But Gastman turned it into another stage for his passion, placing on top a hollow, see-through lamp base with nozzles from spray-paint cans.

“Who else would fill a big glass lamp with spray tips?” Neelon asked. “Roger has an impeccable eye for collecting and displaying art.”"
