Releases: New Obey Soup Cans – All City Propaganda @ Iconoclast

Obey and Iconoclast are bringing back the Soup Cans! Shepard Fairey has designed three more colorways of his iconic “All City Propaganda” Soup Cans. The continuation of this amazing series will look awesome as a completed set. The price will be $250 for each print in the first batch and tiered higher as the release moves toward selling out. The first colorway of the new soup cans will be released in conjunction with the new Iconoclast website launch sometime in June, with the release of the two subsequent colors soon thereafter.

Openings: Andy Kehoe – “Living Twilight” @ Jonathan Levine Gallery

Andy Kehoe opened his first NYC solo “Living Twilight” at Jonathan Levine Gallery alongside Souther Salazar (covered). Through his style of detailed majestic landscapes and rich autumn hues, Kehoe was able to capture the essence of twilight. We also enjoyed his customary detailed man-beasts isolated in his beautiful serene locations. Kehoe’s “fantasy-esqe” style also gave us a sense of a storybook childhood nostalgia. After the Saturday opening of both shows, AM joined Andy and Souther for the official after-party in classic Levine fashion! Check out the pics and a […]

Dr. Sketchy Anti-Art School with David Stoupakis

It’s that time again. Dr. Sketchy’s Anti-Art School held another “artist session.” Last time it was Ron English (covered) and this time it was with David Stoupakis. As always, the place was packed to the brim with art enthusiasts waiting to get their eyes on the beautiful muse sensation Apprella. Check the hot pictures that Molly Crabapple sent to us after the jump…

Openings: Souther Salazar – “Last Year’s Man” @ Jonathan Levine Gallery

Souther Salazar opened his show “Last Year’s Man” at Jonathan Levine Gallery last weekend with a huge body of quality works. We were completely overwhelmed by the various mediums/media that entranced our senses. Known for his melancholy characters that seem simple at first glance, further inspection reveals a veritable “world within a world” complexity. Souther seemed to have the audience in mind when creating his works, as there was literally something to appeal to almost every art enthusiast. There were large wood panels, a video […]

Openings: Art Hong Kong 2009 International Art Fair

Continuing AM’s tour of Hong Kong, we made a stop at the Art Hong Kong International Art Fair. This vanguard Asian fair brings together top notch exhibitors from over 110 galleries. Much like our visits to Basel Miami and Armory NYC, in Hong Kong we experienced and saw work from some of the best talents in the art world. It was exciting to have such a collection of premium artwork centralized in one place. Check out all our exclusive coverage after the jump.

Openings: Jose Parla – “Reading Through Seeing” @ Ooi Botos Gallery (Hong Kong)

Last night, AM was lucky enough to be on hand to experience Jose Parla’s latest body of work Reading Through Seeing (previewed) which opened in Hong Kong at Oos Botos Gallery. Parla’s much anticipated return to Asia didn’t disappoint as he produced a gorgeous body of work on a variety of mediums: canvas, wood, ceramic and paper. Parla blurs the line between contemporary and urban art through a hybrid technique derived from his signature calligraphic style and gritty street influence. Many of Parla’s pieces reflect […]

Street Art Shows Strong @ Sotheby’s Contemporary Day Auction

We heard a rumor that the economy is not well and the art market is hurting. Apparently, the folks attending Sotheby’s Contemporary Day auction don’t agree. Today’s sale yielded solid results, with 337 lots pulling in over 21.5 million USD. Among the amazing lineup of artists, such as Warhol, Basquiat, Kippenberger and Cy Twombly, AM noted the inclusion of two iconic names from the “Urban Art” genre: Shepard Fairey and Banksy. More after the jump…

Openings: Mark Brown – The Lost MacGuffin @ Gallery 1988

Good idea and great execution. That’s the impression we walked away with at Mark Brown’s debut solo show at  Gallery 1988 (LA).  The beautiful paintings in “The Lost MacGuffin” are actually linked in a cohesive and fluid storyline. Starting off from one end of the gallery to the other, the audience will see the story unfolding in each painting. The premise revolves around MacGuffin’s encyclopedia and the drama that unfolds while the characters pursue the mythical book. The art work is top notch and the details […]

Tunnel 228 Theatre x Art Show by Kevin Spacey

The vaults under Waterloo Station have been taken over by artistic director Kevin Spacey and his team from the Old Vic Theatre for their latest venture: Tunnel 228. A very cool “pop up” art show and theatre experience that seems to have come out of nowhere. Via a mysterious website which poses as a legit business, people can get free tickets to the event via a hidden link that allows the visitor to participate in the project. The show includes work by ATMA, Mark Jenkins, Antony […]

Openings: Mars-1 @ Billy Shire Fine Arts

AM stopped by Billy Shire Fine Arts to catch Mars-1′s latest show. Hot off his last show “Nuclear Mystics” at Jonathan LeVine Gallery, Mars-1 continued his direction of creating larger pieces that capture the grand-scale feeling his imagery evokes. The show also featured new resin statues in a color we did not see at his last show at Jonathan Levine Gallery. Check out all the detailed pics after the jump.
