Philadelphia-based artist Jim Houser recently released a new print through Contemporanea in Spain entitled Fusillade. The name of the five color screen print is certainly appropriate as it features a cloud of arrows (some hand painted) that is often seen in Houser’s pieces as well as his installations. Measuring 16 x 16″ with a 1″ border, it comes in an edition of 50 (10 APs) and available here for those interested. Discuss Jim Houser here.

While visiting the NADA fair (more on that later), we stopped to take a look at the signing session at a special booth from Barry McGee for fans that purchased his limited edition Beats Pill. Created in conjunction with Beats By Dre, the product looks great with one of the Bay Area-based artist’s signature characters on the side. More photos can be seen below… Discuss Barry McGee here.
While walking the Wynwood Walls area, we noticed the always attention-grabbing Anthony Lister (filmed) doing his thing in front of a crowd of people. Using his recognizable loose style, the Australian artist took advantage of the long wall to paint a lady on her side overlaid with some of the frames that he has used before.

Tonight in San Francisco, Sam Flores will be opening a new show at Fifty24SF entitled A Light in the Darkness. Coinciding with the Lower Haight Art Walk, the exhibition will feature new paintings on canvas and drawings from the locally-based artist. As you can see from the preview image above, his signature characters and their animal friends continue to hold an important part of his imagery. Flores further states – “The continuous theme in my work is ‘balance.’ The balance of good vs. evil, light […]

While in town for Basel Week Miami, we made sure to head north a little ways to attend the Pulse held at their new location – Indian Beach Park.

Taking one of his most recognizable series of works to the next level, Daniel Arsham has created a site specific installation at Locust Projects coinciding with Basel Week Miami. Entitled Welcome to the Future, the excavation site created by the New York-based artist in the gallery’s floor holds thousands of what he calls “future relics,” objects of today’s time but made to look like calcified artifacts through his special technique. The fact that many of these are already obsolete (such as VHS rates, Walkmans, old school […]
Every year during Basel Week Miami, AM always spends some time in the Wynwood district checking out the activity as street and graffiti artists put in the time to beautify the area. For 2014, the predominant facilitators in the area, Wynwood Walls, decided to focus on The Art of Collaboration. One of the standouts was this joint effort painting four sides of a building by Los Angeles-based artists and coworkers Shepard Fairey (featured) and Cleon Peterson. Take a look at how their imagery melded perfectly together in […]
