This sure looks like a Crayone piece and there is definetely a Sever piece in the collection. Basically, these are wallcoverings of photos of real pieces, so that you can have graffiti at home without the smell and hassle of hiring a real artist.
An old bottle of Krink, that was handed out before production started on the real product. On the back is a smudged KR tag.
If you missed it, New York Times Magazine did a dope piece on Krink (!)

I used to work on a printed zine called Ups. I found some comps that I had created for Volume 3 that was going to be inserted into all orders from Art Crimes. I posted the images on Flickr.
Set of three limited edition Subway Series energy (NRG) drink from Arizona. The other odd thing I found when I visited their site, was the clothing and merchandise (trash can and key chain) line they’re selling online.
Peter Vallone is making himself look silly, as usual, by going after the drink. Check out the NY1 coverage.
The best quote from NY1:
“People are trying to get their energy on. Kids out there could buy it. There’s nothing wrong with it. It’s a drink.”
From its origins as an illegal street activity to its acceptance among art galleries and museums, graffiti has developed as an original visual language. As a popular art form, graffiti has been commodified by its close association with hip-hop music and skate culture, and as a global genre of images circulated through the Internet. Today, it exerts powerful influence in art and design. This exhibition explores the art form’s origins and its evolution in fashion and graphics, with early jackets and clothing painted by original graffiti artists Haze, Cey, Phade and Lady Pink; artist collaborations, such as that between Stephen Sprouse and Louis Vuitton, and Keith Haring and Vivienne Westwood; and high fashion interpretations of the style by designers Martin Margiela, Viktor & Rolf, Moschino, Marc Jacobs and Walter van Bierendonck, among others. Over 20 rare examples of this colorful and original movement on loan from artists, stylists and collectors will be on view together for the first time.

It looks like someone took all of their Twist photos and self-published a book and put it on ebay.
