Streets: Vhils (Berlin)

It looks like Vhils (filmed) has recently stopped by Berlin and left one of his signature wall etchings behind. Perhaps this was created while he was in town for the release of the Walls & Frames book launch party. We especially like the intriguing inclusion of the Eye of Providence which appears on the United States one-dollar bill as Angela Merkel’s 3rd eye. Discuss Vhils here.

Preview: Thomas Woodruff – “The Four Temperament Variations” @ P·P·O·W Gallery

On January 5th, the P·P·O·W Gallery in New York will be hosting new work from the New York based Thomas Woodruff where he is also the Chairman of the Illustration and Cartooning Departments at the School of Visual Arts. The paintings for the show collectively entitled The Four Temperaments Variations were inspired by the theories of Hippocrates, when it was believed everyone’s body and mind were controlled by four different, mysterious, colored fluids – Sanguinic, Choleric, Melancholic, and Phlegmatic – where any imbalance in these fluids […]

Creative Process: Liu Bolin

While Chinese artist Liu Bolin was in New York last summer, AM had the chance to attend his show at Eli Klein Fine Art (covered) as well as hang out with him in the streets as he was working on an in situ 9/11 tribute piece. For those as fascinated as we are with his work, photographer Zachary Bako has spent much time documenting the photographer at work including the session you see above that uniquely does not involve the artist himself as the centerpiece.

Roy Lichtenstein – “Landscapes in the Chinese Style” @ Gagosian Gallery (Hong Kong)

Our Hong Kong correspondent, Layla Kawashima, recently stopped by the Gagosian to take some photos of the Roy Lichtenstein exhibition before it closed. Landscapes in the Chinese Style consists of a collection of lesser known works from the famous pop artist that features his reinterpretation of traditional Chinese painting. He states: “I think (the Chinese landscapes) impress people with having somewhat the same kind of mystery (historical) Chinese paintings have, but in my mind it’s a sort of pseudo-contemplative or mechanical subtlety…I’m not seriously doing […]
