Bronx street & graffiti artist COPE2 recently opened up a new show at New York’s Dorian Grey Gallery.

Releases / Studio Visits: Dave Kinsey, Ron English & TrustoCorp editions by Static Medium

We’ve been busy getting ready the past few weeks for our City of Fire exhibition opening that happens tonight in Beverly Hills.

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 […]
Adam Neate Art HK Elms Lester AM 24

Art HK ’12 Art Fair – Adam Neate @ Elms Lester

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.
