Julia Chiang – “She’s Crafty” @ New Museum

We recently stopped by the New Museum to check out their latest artistic installation in the main lobby. Entitled She’s Crafty, this holiday pop up project gives 13 female artists a few days to bring their talents to share with museum goers. From Dec 12th to Dec 16th, Julia Chiang took stage and brought a mini temporary studio space where she created a host of works demonstrating a wide spectrum of her talents including her signature drip canvases and sculptures. One of our favorite pieces featured […]

United Kingdom’s Paul Insect (featured) recently crossed the pond to New York’s Opera Gallery to present a new body of work entitled Out of Chaos. This expansive new show featured a cornucopia for the eyes as Mr. Insect showed viewers the extent of his true talents with numerous mediums on display – from paintings & sculptures to silkscreens & stencils.

Alice Mizrachi – “Love In The City” @ JuiceTank

Rounding out the the group of artists invited to work inside the mural creation project at start-up incubator JuiceTank is Alice Mizrachi. This Queens native has a unique set of passions and talents as she’s been creating work on the streets and also been teaching art for the past decade. Taking a different approach to her other peers that have worked at JT, Alice focused her mural on “Love” as she feels this is the universal emotion that everyone experiences at some point in life. Per her […]

Basel Week Miami ’12: Art Miami – Highlights

One of the mainstay satellite fairs in Miami was Art Miami. As previously seen in our coverage of their offshoot fair CONTEXT where pieces purported to be street works from Banksy (not authenticated from PC though), this combined pair of fairs was a feast for the eyes. Numerous mediums were on display – not only classic paintings, but sculptures, installations & photographs galore. With dealers and galleries showing side by side, this fair had a wide range of artists in varying stages of career development. From […]

Following a packed showcase for the Hello Kitty, Hello Art book release and exhibition at Known Gallery (covered), Kitty and the crew took over Openhouse Gallery in Chinatown for a pop-up show fit for the big apple. With custom created installation by Dabs & Myla and a limited print release with Betsy Johnson to go along with a new holiday giftshop, it wasn’t shocking […]
Dave Kinsey Liner 12 AM 33

Openings: Dave Kinsey – “Everything At Once” @ Joshua Liner

Last week, Dave Kinsey unveiled a new body of work at New York’s Joshua Liner Gallery. Entitled Everything At Once, this large series is another step forward in the LA-based artist’s magnetic style of painting. Using his abstract techniques and unique color palate, the paintings convey a world gone mad, with media, perpetual conflict and the struggles between the urban and natural worlds. Also for this show, the works landed on both ends of the size scale – some of his largest to date alongside a […]

Basel Week Miami ’12: Art Basel Highlights – Part 2

Without a doubt the sun of the art fair solar system that is Basel Week Miami is Art Basel. Concentrating on just this fair and dedicating our energy to catching it in its entirety including the two hundred plus blue chip galleries present took AM two full days (see day one). It was definitely worth the time spent as we observed million of dollars and flowing from collectors into the art world. What was interesting is the more notable influence of a younger generation artists […]

The first art fair AM rolled into at this year’s fairs in Miami was the main Art Basel event.

This was not only the perfect time to beat the crowds see the standout works, but also for celebrity watching as they made their rounds looking for their blue chip artwork. Check out a look at the opening day action […]
