This Thursday, British Painter Ian Francis (featured) makes a return to New York City’s Joshua Liner Gallery for a new exhibition. Entitled Season 1 Episode 0, this fresh selection of paintings explores the reality and unreality of contemporary TV – from the made up world of characters and storylines, to the digital manipulation of locations and visual effects, to the myriad of platforms that exist today for production, delivery, and global consumption. As you can see from our exclusive preview below, this latest series is another step […]

After the French “photograffeur” won the prestigious TED Prize and pledged his awarded funds to “turn the world INSIDE OUT”, he did just that in the two years since receiving the coveted accolade. JR and his crew traveled around the globe to inspire change through a unique portrait wheatpasting campaign, hitting over a 100 countries both remote and close […]

Julia Chiang Fuse AM 25

Openings: Julia Chiang – “In And Out And In Between” @ Fuse Gallery

Brooklyn artist Julia Chiang recently unveiled a new body of work at New York’s Fuse Gallery. Entitled In And Out And In Between, this latest grouping created seem to be a confluence of styles which Julia has worked on previously. These new paintings are also hanging sculptures which combines Julia’s painted “drops” and hand crafted ceramic works. This unique three dimensional creation gives her flatly painted drops a sense of active movement reminiscent of Claymation. Combine this with Julia’s engaging color choices, this made for […]

TrustoCorp Obey Fairey cereal AM 01

Giveaways: TrustoCorp x OBEY Cereal (Los Angeles)

Our friends at TrustoCorp are back to their old tricks again. Known for their street interventions and “reverse shoplifting” (here & here), the collective is once again visiting stores and placing their products into the natural shopping environment. But, this time they’ve enlisted some help from some other artists. First up is a collaboration with Shepard Fairey where the new flavor of Trusto Cereal is the “OBEY” flavor – which combines their own signature tongue-and-cheek artwork with Shep’s classic Andre The Giant imagery. Expect little touches […]
WK interact WK360 Levine AM 82

Openings: WK Interact – “WK 360″ @ Jonathan LeVine (Pop-up)

A little while back, AM attended the opening for WK Interact’s mid-career survey at Jonathan LeVine’s pop-up outpost. Entitled WK 360 (previewed), this all-inclusive exhibition collected artwork from the past 25 years by the notable French-born & New York-based street artist’s storied career. From indoor to outdoor, WK has always fascinated us with two aspects of his art. The first is his ability to capture the kinetic energy through his motion driven works and the the second is his intricate and equally creative street “contraptions” that are […]
Hess_The Sunset II

Preview: Jessica Hess @ Subliminal Projects

Tonight, Saturday March 23rd, Shepard Fairey’s Subliminal Projects gallery will debut a new body of work by SF-based photorealist painter Jessica Hess. The two person show, also featuring Tara Smith, is entitled “Planes, Trains & Automobiles” and looks to be a great pairing between Hess’ deceivingly photo-realistic graffiti covered vehicles and Smith’s wonderfully washed out urban abstractions. Longtime readers will remember Hess’ last two person show a couple years ago with Kevin Cyr at White Walls Gallery in San Francisco (covered), AM looking forward to […]
Martha Cooper Houston Bowery Mural AM 24

Streets: Martha Cooper Mural on Bowery & Houston

Little known fact: sometimes between the large scale murals by invited artists, the prominent Bowery & Houston wall also hosts temporary tribute projects in the interim such as the one held for Dash Snow after his passing in 2010 (covered). Prior to the mural Crash created recently (here & here), another tribute came up for legendary photographer Martha Cooper, a woman who has definitely left her mark on the Graffiti & Street Art scene over the past few decades. She’s also been the official photographer for […]
