If you remember, AM recently brought you a first look at the KAWS museum show at The Aldrich as well as a peek at the upcoming Pinnochio and Jiminy Cricket figures. Apparently, High Snobiety also made the trek out to Connecticut and put together a nice video capturing footage of the paintings, installations, drawings, sculptural work, and art products that were part of the massive retrospective. Discuss this show here. Discuss Kaws here.

By now, all AM readers should be familiar with James Jean (interviewed) mastery of the paintbrush, but did you know he does a pretty mean sketch as well? Every now and then, the LA-based Jean like to update his blog with his latest moleskin gems like the piece above entitled “Rust.” It’s always interesting to look at the details closely as these definitely seem to be more spontaneous compared to the planning that goes into his paintings. For those lucky enough to be at SDCC, […]
Last weekend, the traveling museum exhibition “TRANSFER” opened it’s doors at the new Brazilian Cultural Pavilion. In 2008, the first edition of the event was held at Santander Cultural in Porto Alegre, Brazil’s largest city in its southern region. This year, the show featuring “contemporary visual art, street art, skateboarding, independent music, as well as underground comics and fanzine art from the last two decades” is set in the cradle of Brazilian street art, Sao Paulo, hoping to duplicate or exceed the 80,000 visitors that […]
It looks like V1 Gallery in Copenhagen, the host of Barry McGee & Todd James’ current exhibition is making some lithographic stone prints available of selected pieces from the show. So, if you liked the show and would like a piece of the action, take a look at some print images after the jump and get in contact with the gallery.
Another year has passed since the last Sea No Evil (covered) and the time has come to get together for another charity show to benefit the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society. The benefit art auction for the organization most well known for Whale Wars is once again held in Riverside, California at the Riverside Municipal Auditorium and will feature an even more impressive lineup of artists this year with over 100 works available via silent auction. The doors open on July 31st at 6 pm ($20 […]
So, it looks like that full “Uncle Six-Eyes” figure (covered here) that was in the works from Travis Louie (interviewed) has been converted to a bust. The prototype from Big Shot Toyworks can be seen at this year’s SDCC but that’s not the only thing Travis has in store for his fans. He will also be releasing a second volume of his postcard collection with Circus Posterus and will be revealing his design for their upcoming skelve figure at the booth. Of course, he will […]
After sharing some photos of the impressive Faile (featured) installation with you recently, we now bring you some video footage from Vernissage TV. Seeing the “Temple” in the context of the surrounding architecture in Praça dos Restauradores, one of the major squares in the center of Lisbon, definitely gives us more of an appreciation of what the Patricks accomplished. Not only did they fully execute a temple in “ruins” with their signature imagery, the Brooklyn duo were able to create something that fit in perfectly […]
For those of you who have been following out coverage of the Viva La Revolucion exhibition, we have for you a final roundup of the work put up around San Diego by the participating artists. We start you off with completed pics of Shepard Fairey’s (featured) Burmese Monk mural in South Park. The large mural was even more impressive when you consider that it was all painted/stenciled as opposed to the usual wheatpaste. More images of this piece and others after the jump as well […]
It’s been awhile since we last saw Mark Dean Veca (interviewed) at his solo show opening in New York at the Jonathan LeVine Gallery, but now we can bring you a new painting by the Los Angeles based artist. This new “Scrooge” piece, done in the usual MDV “Toile de Jouy” style, is slated to be part of his solo show in September at Western Project, the site of an earlier group show he was part of. We’ll have more for you as the show […]
