Teaser: Christiaan Nagel @ Rich Mix

You may remember a while back when we introduced you to Christiaan Nagel’s mushroom street interventions in London. Apparently, he will be taking his creations indoors with a show presented by Street Art London at Rich Mix. His thoughts behind the show – “Mushrooms are a metaphor for the idea. Ideas are original thoughts. Where do all ideas come from? They are the culmination of the person and his environmental circumstances. There is an element of randomness in any idea, that part we don’t have […]

Well, the Your Ad Here finally opened Friday night and it looks like Mr. Obey packed heavy bags for his trip to Denmark as there was an abundance of quality work to be enjoyed by the local fans. Local AM photographer Henrik Haven was on site to capture the opening […]

Streets: Evol (Germany)

Known for his ability to modify urban structures to resemble hyper-realistic miniature buildings, Berlin-based artist EVOL recently took his unique artform up a notch. As one of the participants of the art component of the MS Dockville Music Festival, what he had to work with was in his words “the endless meadow, trees and blue sky, not exactly what I play with usually.”  What he decided to do next was pretty amazing. He “decided to cut open the idyll, and pretend there is no endless meadow, but […]

Peter de Sève – “Easy Being Green, It Is Not”

This work entitled Easy Being Green, It Is Not from Peter de Sève recently caught our eye as we were browsing the interwebs. This unlikely but perfect juxtaposition between Kermit and Yoda was painted for the Star Wars, Visions, a collection of Star Wars images created by a wide variety of artists from many genres.  The famed American illustrator has also created many of the covers for the The New Yorker as well as worked on character design on many animated features including the beloved […]

Have you ever wondered how AJ Fosik puts together one of his fantastic wood sculptures like the ones in this show last year in Denver? The video above which shows him putting together the piece seen on the new Mastodon album should satisfy some of the curious Fosik fans out there. For those in New York, look for a solo from the Portland-based artist at Jonathan LeVine Galley at the end of October. Take a look at the album cover after the jump…
