Streets: Merry Christmas from C215

What a fitting photo with the snow, church, and imagery courtesy of French stencil specialist C215, who recently showed at Galerie Itinerrance (covered). This piece is a “sacred heart” variation on a piece we featured last year at this time. Another view after the jump…

Streets: WK Interact (Paris)

It looks like Paris recently received a hefty dose of WK Interact and also may have gotten a glimpse at a different side of the NY-based artist. The bondage-inspired works were considerably smaller than the huge mural WK just completed in Mexico (covered), but nevertheless, still made a strong impact on the City of Lights. More images after the jump…

Streets: Judith Supine (Los Angeles)

It looks like Judith Supine was recently in Los Angeles for a visit. While in town, he took time to throw up several of his signature “green skinned” collaged pieces including one that was put in New Image Art’s show (covered) in Miami for Art Basel Week. Thankfully, his buddy Skullphone had time to shoot some pics before the rains started. More after the jump…

Releases/Highlights: Tauba Auerbach “[2,3]” Pop-Up Book & MOVE! Performance

A little over a month ago at the NY Book Fair, organized by the largest non-profit dedicated to publications made by artists Printed Matter, Tauba Auerbach unveiled the beginnings of an intriguing and gravity defying pop-up book. On the heels of her powerful solo exhibition, The W Axis (covered), as well as a blowout result at a recent charity auction where one of her much sought after Fold paintings reportedly sold for nearly 10x the estimate, the scalding hot contemporary artist has condensed her methodical […]

Basel Week Miami ’10: Shepard Fairey – “Mandala Ornament”

Art Basel Week in Miami may have a lot of action indoors at the fairs, but that’s not the only place you will find the arts. As you can see with Wynwood Walls and along the streets of Miami, in recent years we have seen artists make contributions on the outdoors too. We took a break from the fair circuit during the week to meet up with friend Shepard Fairey to catch him working on this gorgeous Mandala Ornament mural on the side of a […]

Streets: Basel Week Miami ’10 Overview (Part III)

Here is a third and final look at the street art from Art Basel Week Miami (see part I and Part II, and Wynwood Walls) as we wind down our coverage the art highlight event of the year. We will definitely be back again next year as each successive fair seems to get bigger and better. Other than an upcoming feature on the graffiti and perhaps one or two individual focuses, this will be your final fix on the outdoor work. More photos after the […]

Releases / Streets: Nate Lowman Bullet Hole Print and NYC Wall

The Details Guild is an organization that works with leading artists to broaden community interaction with art through public installations, art education and mentoring programs.  They recently called upon Nate Lowman (who had a triptych shown at this year’s Basel Miami), who, with the help of some students, created a wall mural that went up on the corner of West 13th and Washington in NYC. In addition, he made a signed print edition of 50 featuring his signature bullet hole to raise money for teen […]

Streets: El Mac (Mexico) Part II

A while back, we posted up some photos of a mural El Mac painted for the Seres Queridos project in Mexico. The street artist, known for his signature striation and large-scale murals recently shared new photos of another piece from the same series based on Manuel Lee Chang, known locally as “el Chino”(despite the fact that he’s of Korean descent) with his Guacamaya (Macaw). Take a look at more photos after the jump…

Studio Visit/Preview: Dennis McNett

AM paid a visit to Dennis McNett’s studio while he was finishing up work for his show Reaping Waves and Vital Vessels, opening this Thursday at Joshua Liner Gallery. The space was packed with linocut and woodcut printed paper and hand-painted wood carvings, and McNett described his grand plans for filling the entire gallery with individual works and large-scale installations assembled from the various pieces. Much of the imagery appeared highly influenced by Greek and Norse history and mythology, with representations of wolves, serpents and […]
