Hong Kong has an art themed mall named K11 and it recently held its first public art fair. Curated by our friend Suitman, Public Fair No. 1 brought together a diverse mix of talent hailing from different countries around the world to deliver a multi-sensory experience. Included were artists Cody Hudson, Sticky Monster Lab, Hito Zuki and of course Suit himself. There seem to be something for everyone to get into from inflatable sculptures to rendered videos, photographs to custom figurines, and even an 80 […]

Last month, AM stopped by the Hong Kong edition of the Daydreaming with… exhibition. Designed to marry music and visual art, this experience gathered some high profile names in the genres of music, art, film, photography, fashion and design. Held in the ARTISTREE show center, the event took full advantage of the spacious layout to showcase the works of 30 artists such as Futura, Cyrcle. (see video of their experience here), Jonas Akerlund, Wing Shya, Li Wei, Doug Foster, Cang Xin Shynola, Emma Richardson, Jonas […]
Several months ago at the ADAA Art Show, we caught some new work from Yoshitomo Nara as he made his solo fair debut with Pace Gallery. The entire booth was filed with a variety of Nara’s signature works on paper. Lined up by time periods, attendees such as Damien Hirst and some of New York’s top collectors visiting the booth got a chance to see some of Nara’s older works and understand the progression to the current blue-chip stage of his career. Discuss Yoshitomo Nara […]
Another booth we spent time at during Art HK was the one stocked by Takashi Murakami’s Kaikai Kiki gallery. Their booth held a solo feature for Rei Sato and her latest body of work entitled All Monsters Hold Secrets in Their Grasp. Much different than the light sculptural installation which we saw her create for the Guggenheim’s Peter & The Wolf, Rei this time showcases her signature works which feature photographs expanded on canvas, which are then painted on. As sort of an artwork on top of […]
Bronx street & graffiti artist COPE2 recently opened up a new show at New York’s Dorian Grey Gallery. After seeing his signature bubble tag style at recently at exhibitions & on the streets, we check COPE twisting it to bring a different look by focusing less on his famous tag for his indoor works and a little more on the street element with his aerosols. Check out all the opening night action below. Discuss COPE2 here. Photo credit: Joe Russo for Arrested Motion. Check out more from Joe […]
This Saturday (June 16th), Known Gallery will play host to Patrick Martinez’s latest show Lovely Day. In his second solo exhibition with the LA space (see the first one here), Patrick will bring another dose of his crisp neon works. In addition, we’ll also see the inclusion of some of the LA-based artist’s painted works like the one seen on his cover for Stalley’s album. Mr. Martinez shares with us an early look into what’s in store for this show. Discuss this show here. Discuss Patrick […]
Last month, Prune Nourry premiered her solo exhibition Holy River at The Invisible Dog Art Center in Brooklyn. The packed opening night showcased the talents of Ms. Nourry with her unique style of mixing traditional mediums such as photography, sculpture, and installation in addition to her creative use of video (seen here) and performance art. The subjects focused on were the citizens of India, their unique gender selection, and traditions surrounding water which she observed and researched over the course of 3 years. Installation & Artwork shot […]
We’ve been busy getting ready the past few weeks for our City of Fire exhibition opening that happens tonight in Beverly Hills. While exhibiting fresh artwork from some of our favorite artists may be the point of this group show, but we also remember that the foundation of many collections are rooted in fine art editions. So in celebration of this opening we have worked with Dave Kinsey, Ron English and TrustoCorp to create a unique series of limited prints for the AM readers. Part […]
One of the booths we quite enjoyed at Art Hong Kong was the Elms Lesters showing with Adam Neate (interviewed). As we have stated many times before like at his exhibition last October in the UK (covered), AM is quite enamored with the street turned contemporary artist’s dimensional paintings. Judging from the response from fair-goers, we weren’t the only ones who felt that way. Discuss Art HK here. Discuss Adam Neate here.
On Thursday, Evan Hecox made his return to Joshua Liner Gallery for his second solo exhibition. Entitled Dark Island, Hecox focuses his new body of work on New York and its renowned five boroughs. With a diverse range of mediums being explored for this show – from works on vintage New York Times from the 1800s to his detailed canvased works – the Denver-based artist made it a point to exercise his detailed style and incorporate site specific inspirations from the Big Apple. We especially noted […]
