Opening this Saturday night at Jonathan LeVine will be a new exhibition from Alex Gross, one of the more fascinating and complex painters we follow here at AM. The Los Angeles based artist will be making his return to the New York gallery after almost two years, bringing a fresh collection of works entitled “Discrepancies”, also the name of his newest monograph to be released the same night. We were delighted to be able to talk to Alex recently about his new body of work, [...]

An artist that caught our eyes, Glennray Tutor, sat down with us for a session of questions and answers recently. Tutor, who is based in Mississippi, touches on subjects such as his popular “marbles and comics” series, his work in the context of photorealism, and legacy of William Faulkner who coincidentally lived in the same town and whose quote we derived the name of our website from. Take a look at the full interview after the jump…
Two of our cultural loves come together this week in an artistic punk rock mash-up. “Beyond Punk” is a group art exhibition curated by femme punk icon Gaye Advert, the former bass guitarist of The Adverts. The show features a selection of musicians from the punk era who were either artists prior to being engulfed in the music scene or have turned to art as their form of expression. Several artists featured in the show are non-musicians, but have been long time followers of the [...]
As we mentioned a couple weeks ago, Eric Joyner will be opening his newest show at Corey Helford this Saturday, August 14th. We had the opportunity to get together with Eric for a session of questions and answers as well as getting an advanced look at some of the pieces in this show. He took time to explain his subject matter, talk a little about his influences, and much more. Check the full interview after the jump…
AM recently stopped by Thinkspace Gallery to check out Ekundayo’s (featured) latest show “Joy Today Jeopardy Tomorrow” which included this pretty sick mural install (seen above). We also had a chance to chat with the artist and followup on our studio visit by interviewing him in regards to this new body of work. Make sure you stop by to check out the show for yourself as this is the last week it will be up. Questions and answers after the jump…
Continuing with our coverage of this cool project, here’s an interview of Jeff Koons discussing his contribution in designing BMW’s M3 GT2 which raced recently in the 24 Hours of Le mans endurance race in France on June 13th. In the video he talks about his inspiration for the car, his peers and his family with Blast. Thanks to Hypebeast for the heads up. Discuss Jeff Koons here.
AM heard some sad news a couple of weeks ago that Burning Candy member Rowdy lost just about everything he owned in a fire that destroyed his home and painting studio. Rowdy had popped out of his flat in Bristol for a short time only to return and find the building engulfed in flames. In a moment, everything was gone – even one of his most prized possessions, this piece of sartorial elegance, the psychedelic church sweater seen in the picture above sent onto us [...]
Brett Amory is an artist living and working in San Francisco. Amory graduated from the Academy of Arts in 2005 and has been showing his work all over the country since graduating. Amory first made his mark with the release of “Convergence”, a book that came out in 2006 that he put out with some friends whose names you may recognize (Mars-1, David Choong Lee, Damon Soule, Oliver Vernon, and Nome Edona). We sat down with him for an interview ahead of his show opening [...]
After six months of studio time, and a week in the gallery prior to the opening installing his latest exhibition, Richard Colman opened his “Keep Out The Light” exhibition at New Image Art recently. We have been watching out for updates on how the show was coming together, as Colman’s shows are usually very installation heavy, and always exciting. Richard was pounding the tools until the early hours each day with the install, and the scale & intensity of this show certainly doesn’t disappoint – [...]
French artist Zilda’s classically influenced street work are inspired by old books and works of the master painters and sculptors of the past. With such a wealth of material to refer to, it was somewhat surprising to find out that his work is all originally hand-painted. We talked about his history, technique, and future, among other things in our interview – all after the jump.
