Streets: Barry McGee (New York)

It looks like Barry McGee has begin his assault on New York by throwing up huge tags all over the mural space at the Houston and Bowery location we first told you about last week. Initially, this looks pretty similar to the wall he worked on in San Diego for the Viva La Revolucion show but we will be monitoring the site for any additional progress. More pics after the jump…

Video: Aiko Installation @ The Standard (Hollywood)

The Lady Aiko, who was recently in Los Angeles for the opening of her joint show “Vivid Fiction” (covered), lived for a week at The Standard in Hollywood. While staying at the hotel, she created an installation there with her signature stencils and imagery. Luckily for us, someone was around to get some footage. This was not the first time she has graced the walls of one of The Standard’s hotels as she has worked on the location in New York as well in the past. Via […]

Murakami x Britney Spears for POP Magazine

When Britney Spears posted up a photo on twitter of her and Takashi Murakami posing, fans could only wonder what they were up to. It turns out what they were working on was a photoshoot for POP magazine, quite an appropriate pairing for the princess of pop music and the king of pop art. Take a look at what they were working on under Murakami’s art direction (a look that is a cross between retro beauty pageant queen and manga inspired otaku fantasy) after the […]

Teaser: Barry McGee Mural (New York)

So, observant street art fans in New York must have noticed by now that Shepard Fairey’s much vandalized “These Parties Disgust Me” mural (done in conjunction with his “May Day” show at Deitch) has been covered with the scaffolding below rebuilt. Although there has been some speculation the preserved Os Gemeos mural underneath would once again re-emerge at the Houston and Bowery location, what AM has confirmed may be even more exciting…  The site will be a new canvas for another street legend soon – […]
