Teaser: Luke Chueh – “Contemptorary Art” @ Corey Helford Gallery

Luke Chueh’s (interviewed) upcoming show at Corey Helford in February is shaping up to be an interesting affair. Not only will a large-scale Possessed sculpture hopefully be revealed, but he’ll be taking his work in a new direction for the solo, aptly named Contemptorary Art [sic]. The show is Luke’s unique take on contemporary art which we got a taste of this with the painting seen above, Label Series – Lowbrow (and Still the Loser), that we saw at Art Basel Week which is inspired […]

Publications: Roger Gastman – “Tools Of Criminal Mischief”

Our friend Roger Gastman has been a busy boy. First he was the consulting producer for Exit Through the Gift Shop, then he curated the Sanrio anniversary art show, and later in 2011, he’ll be helping the MOCA to curate their Art in the Streets exhibition. Somehow, he still found a way to squeeze some time in to write a new book on graffiti. Bringing together street art stories from current day to all the way back in the 1940’s, it’s definitely one to grab […]

Odili Donald Odita – “Body and Space” @ Jack Shainman Gallery

AM recently dropped by Jack Shainman Gallery in Chelsea to check out Odili Donald Odita’s latest exhibition Body and Space.

Odili engaged viewers with the question of “what color means to them” and had us going from the moment we set foot in the gallery space. Check it all out after the jump.

Sketchbook: Yoskay Yamamoto (Part II)

We continue our look at artists’ sketchbooks with a peek at Yoskay Yamamoto’s (featured) recent efforts.  You may remember that we had brought you a glance through his sketches almost a year ago.  In fact, Yoskay was one of our first sketchbook features.  He most recently showed some work at Roq La Rue (covered) where the tried a new medium – paintings on paper – we’ll see if this continues in 2011.
