part of Maurizio Couldn't Be Here




New York artist Eric Doeringer has copied works of more than forty famous contemporary artists. Bootlegs is a series of miniature replicas of paintings, sculpture, photographs, videos and other media. Like any street vendor, Doeringer sells his bootlegs for a fraction of the price of the originals. His pieces are normally found in close proximity to busy art centers, like the streets of Chelsea, on the edge of art fairs, or at the entrance of museums.
