World Tour: Gary Baseman & Toby in Israel – Jerusalem Meat and Jesus’ Lamb

We stopped by our friend Gary Basman’s (interviewed) studio this week to chat and take a look on his preparations for his upcoming show  “Le Noche de La Fusion” at Corey Helford Gallery.  We were amazed by all the work and planning that will be going into making this one of the biggest art parties of the year, but more on that later. If you remember, Gary had a show in Israel this past January.  As per his usual custom, he brought along Toby to […]

Studio Visits/Video: Judith Supine

AM last showed you street artist Judith Supine’s colorful psychedelic imagery with the unveiling of his massive 18 x 16′ kinetic sculpture piece at the 15 Years of New Image Art show back in January. Curious as to what he’s been up to, the multi-talented Dante Ross recently paid his friend a visit at his home studio where we got a good look at Supine’s recent work in progress. Some pieces look slated for the street and others for gallery shows. Either way, we’re interested […]

Streets: D*Face

Originally thought to be an April Fool’s joke, United Kingdom street artist D*Face had the last laugh when he released a 20 pound sterling note remixed in his signature 80’s punk and skate inspired style on over ten digital billboards throughout the city in protest of the G-20 London Summit. Were the advertisements paid for or did D*Face hack into the computer systems controlling the billboards? A message on D*Face’s website reads: “No fools day. Where there’s a will there’s a way. Catch them before […]
