Earlier this month, we focused on contemporary artist Robert Longo and his recently painted “Heroes” series. Our friends over at TAC have now found some pictures of Longo’s studio via The Selby. We take a look at the tools of his trade and what looks to be detailed models of pieces that have been or may be in the works. Seen in these pictures are also studies for two of his notable early series of works: “Men of the City” and “Wave.” Check out the […]

Who says street art has no cred with the mainstream? Kinda saying a lot when one of the most respected publications in the world takes the time to break out a “Top Ten” list of the top “Guerrilla Artists.” The usual suspects – Jean-Michel Basquiat, Shepard Fairey and Banksy are there. But, we’re surprised that Kaws and his infamousĂ‚Â phone booth/bus stop “Ad-Disruptions” didn’t make the list.Ă‚Â Check out whoĂ‚Â did and didn’tĂ‚Â made theĂ‚Â cutĂ‚Â here. Via our friends atĂ‚Â TWBE.
Come and get it, fresh off the line. Banksy is serving up “Donuts!” There has been much speculation on when Banksy was going to release a print from hisĂ‚Â recent Bristol Museum show (covered).

If you recall, we recently showed you the mural that Ai Yamaguchi did for a Shu Uemura store in SF. Continuing on the trend of collaborations between artists and cosmetic companies, Marilyn Minter joins Fafi in promoting the brand MAC, with a campaign starting in August. MAC’s bold and richĂ‚Â colors match up very well Minter’s flashy, gritty and glamorous style as you can see from her latest show at Salon 94 (covered). MAC also recently celebrated their upcoming ad campaign with a party at Minter’s […]
When we first broke the news that Os Gemeos was doing the mural at the previous Keith Haring tribute location, we had also heard that it was going to take 11 days to finish the new project. After the 3rd day, the mural looked great and we thought it was going to be done that night. But day after day, we could see the twins from Sao Paulo working hard and building layer upon layer of detail into their labor of love. “So close, yet […]
AM had the chance to spend a few evenings with Ellis G. prior to his upcoming solo show “Ocular Echoism: The Autonomy of Ellis Gallagher” opening at Collective Hardware this Thursday, July 23 at 7pm in NYC. If you recall, we also had a chance to spend time with him on the streets before the group show he participated in at Thinkspace back in January. As we walked the streets of Cobble Hill looking for the perfect subject/shadow, Ellis seemed to know a lot of […]

Lance Armstrong andÂ Nike Sportswear’s “Stages” exhibition (previewed here and here) opened up with an amazing roster of artists. As Geoff McFetridge put it, “It’s a veritable ‘A-Team’ of top artists from all walks of the art world.” With names such as Ed Ruscha, Tom Sachs, Eric White, Christopher Wool, Shepard Fairey, Kaws, Cai Guo-Qiang, Yoshitomo Nara, Jose Parla, Richard Prince and Raymond Pettibon to name a few, it was quite a feat to put together this team of prominent artists who banded together for a […]
