Osgemeos – “Slava’s Head” for The Moulin / Dépayz’arts

It looks like Osgemeos has hooked up with The Moulin again for another project, this time to fashion Slava’s head out of a trailer. The character is taken of the famous Russian clown show – Slava’s SnowShow, which is also the subject of an animation that the Brazilian duo are working on (shown here previously).  The installation will be part of a project called “Dépayz’arts“, held between Dec 27th-31st, with some of the best theater, dance, music, installation and street theatre groups including of course, […]

Sketchbook: Amy Sol

Inspired by some night-time walks by the coastline in the Northwest, Amy Sol (interviewed) recently filled her sketchbook with some night scenery since her last show was at Corey Helford (covered). It remains to be seen whether this translates to actual paintings, which actually would be pretty interesting. We are looking forward to her part in a monster group show towards the end of 2011 at Thinkspace Gallery. More after the jump…

Teaser: Damien Hirst – “Forgotten Promises” @ Gagosian Gallery (Hong Kong)

To christen their new space in style, the Gagosian in Hong Kong will be hosting Damien Hirst’s Forgotten Promises as their debut show on January 18. After famously celebrating the opening of their Paris branch in October with Cy Twombly, the powerhouse gallery will followup with their first outpost in Asia by bringing the UK badboy along and word is he will be exhibiting his “mini skull” fashioned after child’s skull and adorned with pink diamonds – a scaled-down version of For the Love of […]

Merry Christmas from Skewville

Our final gift to you comes from the NYC art duo Skewville.  Known for their hanging wooden shoes, it looks like they hung up something different this time above the cleverly incorporated door for this street piece. And, with this final Christmas greeting, we would like to take this opportunity to wish you a Happy Holidays from the AM crew. Keep warm and we hope you got what you wanted for Xmas. Via Wooster Collective.

Streets: Merry Christmas from Slinkachu

More Christmas greetings come from street miniature photographer Slinkachu. This piece in London entitled Maz + Joe is a twist on the usual story this time of year with Mary riding something other than a Donkey, but it looks like all the places to sleep are still full. Hopefully, they’ll be able to find a manger to keep warm and deliver their bundle of joy. Another view after the jump…

Merry Christmas from Ashley Wood

Just like for Halloween, Ashley Wood took the time to create something for his fans. The giant in the comic book world is supposed to be exhibiting along with frequent collaborator and one of AM’s favorites Jeremy Geddes (interviewed) at Jonathan LeVine in 2012. But until then, take a look at the current piece on his easel after the jump from his frequently updated blog.

Merry Christmas from Takashi Murakami

Looks like Mr. Kaikai Kiki would like to wish everyone Happy Holidays with this picture posed next to “Santa DOB”. Wouldn’t Murakami look kinda like a Japanese Santa Claus if his hairs were whiter?  Then we would all get the gifts we always wanted… Discuss Takashi Murakami here.
