Last week, we brought you the start of Aiko’s work on New York’s renowned Bowery & Houston mural location. Working through the course of several days the artist took her time to stencil and paint sections of the wall. As you can see from the detailed shots, Lady Aiko made more progress by implementing more colors on to the final product. Take a look at the completed mural below. Discuss Aiko here.

A couple nights ago, AM was able to stop by the Whitney Museum in New York to attend the opening of the Yayoi Kusama solo exhibition.

Wandering through a wonderland of the […]

We’ll have a closer look at this amazing collaboration very soon… Photo thanks to Tabathammm. Discuss Futura here.
It’s that time of the year again for New York’s iconic Bowery & Houston wall.

AM stopped by the past two days to catch the […]

As we mentioned in our preview, artists this year upped the ante as each created three pieces of original artwork for fans who may not have the opportunity to purchase their larger scale works. All you needed was a $100 and the patience to queue up for a chance at your favorite artwork. Tara McPherson curated strong and diverse lineup which included names such as James Jean, Audrey […]

We stopped by the gallery to sneak a peek and noticed that this year, artists aren’t just submitting simple “tiny” sketches. Many took their time to create some significant gems for all their fans out there. Tara McPherson curates a loaded line up […]
