Remio Tim Diet Guerrero setup AM 09

Setup: Remio & Tim Diet @ Guerrero Gallery

AM recently stopped by San Francisco to visit Guerrero Gallery and caught the setup by Remio & Tim Diet as they prepared for their opening this Saturday. First up is Remio, known as a great writer around the world (part of both Barry McGee’s DFW/THR and Os Gemeos’ VLOK crew), bringing a impactful show entitled Man In Transition. Moving his street roots into the gallery realm, we enjoyed his “cluster faces” where he painted faces based on his graff style. At face value, it may look simple, but upon closer inspection the colors & textures […]
How Nosm Levine setup AM 07

Setup: How & Nosm – “Late Confessions” @ Jonathan LeVine (Pop-up)

After hitting up the iconic Bowery & Houston wall in the fall, the artists known as How & Nosm are ready to take their style indoors for NYC. This Friday, the boys will be premiering a large body of fresh works at Jonathan Levine Gallery’s new pop-up space (557 w. 23rd Street). Entitled Late Confessions, the identical twins have dug deep into their repertoire of creative and meticulous urban techniques to kick start Levine’s pop-up showspace, only a few blocks away from the main gallery. AM stopped by to catch […]

Swoon Thalassa Paper Monster AM 3

Releases: Swoon – “Thalassa” @ Paper Monster

Tomorrow (January 23rd) at noon, Paper Monster will be releasing a series of new editioned variants with Swoon. Entitled Thalassa, the iconic image from the New Orleans Museum of Art is transformed into an original piece of artwork. Each one is unique in that the NY-based artist worked on each one with her signature block prints and fine paper cut-outs/collaging. Also in keeping with her tradition of working with found, re-purposed and salvaged materials each piece in mounted in on a one of a kind medium (like […]

David Shrigley Anton Kern AM 05

Openings: David Shrigley – “Signs” @ Anton Kern Gallery

Enchanted as we were by David Shrigley’s retrospective last year in London (covered here & here), we were excited to see something new from him for his solo at that opened last week at the Anton Kern Gallery in New York. Entitled Signs, the paintings and sculptural works featured the UK-artist’s well-known witticisms and playful nature. The exhibition runs through February 19th so head over if you are in town. Discuss David Shrigley here.
Aakash Nihalani Levine AM 23

Openings: Aakash Nihalani – “Portal” @ Jonathan LeVine Gallery

Over the weekend, the Jonathan LeVine Gallery hosted all new work from Aakash Nihalani alongside the solo from Haroshi (covered). Nihalani’s innovative geometric forms, collectively entitled Portal, featured a playful nature throughout the compositions, yet at the same time exhibited a strong sense of structure. In the NY-based artist’s words – “I try to create a new visual space within the physical confines of any piece I work on, through the illusion of three-dimensional imagery contained on a two-dimensional plane. When looking at the work—orientation shifts, shapes merge, direction inverts, foreground […]
Robert Lazzarini Marlborugh AM 27

Openings: Robert Lazzarini – “(damage)” @ Marlborough Gallery (Chelsea)

Do not adjust your browser – nothing is wrong with the settings. It’s visual distortion at its finest and this is what Robert Lazzarini intends. Last week, AM attended the opening of (damage) at Marlborough Gallery’s Chelsea location in New York to check out a series of works that takes Lazzarini’s mind-bending technique and incorporates the concept of “damage.” From a vault and its unhinged door to a broken window, Lazzarini demonstrates a warped perspective, but also its integrity and utility (or lack thereof). Our favorite is a […]
Hiroshi Levine Virtual Reality AM 001

Openings: Haroshi – “Virtual Reality” @ Jonathan LeVine

This past weekend, Japanese artist Haroshi debuted a new body of works at New York’s Jonathan LeVine Gallery. Entitled Virtual Reality, this exhibition is the second in the Big Apple by the sculptor known for utilizing used skate decks as his source material. On display this time were full-scale sculptural creations such as kicks by Airwalk, bullets, a skull, and even an incredible life size skater pulling off a handplant. Included in the showing was an installation of hand carved skate decks made of recycled skateboards […]
Kaws Boba Fett Original Fake AM 1

Releases: Boba Fett (KAWS Version)

After creating interpretations of iconic Star Wars characters such as Darth Vader and the Storm Trooper, KAWS gives his vision on how the legendary Boba Fett will look with his signature “XX”. One of the most popular villans and definitely the most feared intergalactic bounty hunter in the Star Wars universe, Boba has one of the coolest character designs and weaponry in Hollywood. The figure  looks incredible as KAWS and Medicom actually craft jaw dropping detailings such as the wear and battle damage on the armored […]
