Releases: ‘Untitled’ / Bon Iver album art by Gregory Euclide

If you previously have had the pleasure of seeing Minnesota artist Gregory Euclide’s work in person, then you will surely attest to what a immersive experience his multi-dimensional mixed media work can be. David B Smith Gallery, who represents his work in Denver, have just published a limited edition giclee print – titled Untitled. You may be wondering how one of Euclide’s works would translate into an essentially flat medium, but the original image was created with 2-dimensional representation in mind as it features as cover […]

Studio Visit: Mark Whalen (Kill Pixie)

Last week, we featured a video teaser for Mark Whalen’s latest exhibition entitled Anomaly. We were fortunate enough to be able to follow this up with a visit to his studio and document the some of the process as he readies for his September 10th show at the Merry Karnowksy Gallery. If that video didn’t blow you away, this visit should at the least give you a great indication of the hard work put forth by the Australian born artist. Whalen, who also goes by […]

Tim O’Brien – Gaddafi Time Magazine Cover

Looks like Tim O’Brien is the go-to guy now when it comes to the fall of dictators. After “x”-ing out Osama bin Laden for the TIME’s cover a while back, the magazine asked him to headline their latest issue with the cover art for their Gaddafi story. Since the elusive former Libya strongman is still on the loose, although his rule is pretty much over, the painting had to be a little more subtle (explained on Tim’s blog). More detailed pics and actual cover after […]

AM was quite enamored with his last set of paintings for the UK and look forward to seeing what he has to offer this time. Discuss this show […]

It’s time to summarize the remaining murals for the T&J Art Walk now after bringing you the walls from Faile, Shepard Fairey, D*Face, and Logan Hicks previously.

Anish Kapoor illy art cups AM 01

Releases: Anish Kapoor x illy Art Collection

Finally after years of hoping and wanting, we got an Anish Kapoor dish… coffee cup and dish that is. Italian Coffee maker illy has commissioned the famous Indian artist to design this year’s artist cup for their prestigious Art Collection which has seen collaborations with some of art’s most celebrated artists such as Jeff Koons, Louise Bourgeois and Robert Rauschenberg. At first glance, one may notice that this cup and saucer garners the same perfectly polished metallic surface that we’ve come to expect from many of Kapoor’s iconic […]
