Teaser: Lindsey Carr – “Homage to Canton” @ Thinkspace

Scotland-based artist Lindsey Carr, who we have seen in multiple group shows in the past, will be bringing a full set of paintings for her solo at Thinkspace in September. Entitled Homage to Canton, the new body of work will feature her retro-feel illustrations of flora and fauna like the great John James Audubon but with a surreal touch like Scott Musgrove as some of what she paints won’t be found in nature.

Openings / Video – Brandon Shigeta – “ARTCUBE” @ Little Tokyo Design Week

Congratulations to contributing photographer Brandon Shigeta as his ARTCUBE installation for Little Tokyo Design Week (LTDW) was a smashing success. In fact, Brandon’s concept was chosen as the winner of this year’s Golden Astro Boy award award. This is what Jeffrey Deitch had to say – “There were a few reasons why I thought Brandon’s exhibit was the strongest. It wasn’t a piece that would have typically been found in a museum or gallery. He really conceived it for the container, and it worked well in that context. It also […]

Video: KAWS x Hennessy Studio Visit

A little while back, we brought you some photos from the Hennessy x KAWS bottle release party. In the video above, the Brooklyn based artist discusses the project on camera, but more importantly, the footage allows viewers to catch a glimpse of more of his recent work. He appears to be going with bold color schemes, some of which we showed you here, for his upcoming show in September at Honor Fraser. Via Slamxhype. Discuss KAWS here.

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 […]

Preview: “The Blab! Show” @ Roq La Rue

Featuring a stellar lineup of artists, the Roq La Rue gallery will be hosting the reoccurring The Blab! Show with Krampus being the theme this time. Familiar regulars such as Nicoletta Ceccoli, Travis Louie, Martin Wittfooth, Ana Bagayan, Brian Despain, Dan May, Shag, Andy Kehoe, and some other talent new to AM will be painting their versions of the mythical creature. Judging from the piece above, there will be some spanking and other punishments in Seattle when this Friday, August 12th rolls around. More preview […]

Opening & Afterparty: Shepard Fairey – “Your Ad Here” @ V1 Gallery

As most of our regulars know, we have been following Shepard Fairey’s (featured) excursion into Copenhagen for a series of murals (part 1, part 2, and part 3) leading up to his showing at V1 Gallery. 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 […]

Streets: Shepard Fairey (Copenhagen) Part III

Here are some more photos of our four part series as Shepard Fairey (featured) continued to assault the streets prior to his show that opened last night in Denmark at the V1 Gallery (more on this soon).  You can refer to part 1 and part 2 of our coverage where you can see the OBEY crew busy the entire week stenciling and wheatpasting on the streets of Copenhagen. More photos taken for us by Henrik Haven after the jump…
