Interviews: Ellis G. – “Ocular Echoism: The Autonomy of Ellis Gallagher” @ Collective Hardware

AM had the chance to spend a few evenings with Ellis G. prior to his upcoming solo show “Ocular Echoism: The Autonomy of Ellis Gallagher” opening at Collective Hardware this Thursday, July 23 at 7pm in NYC. If you recall, we also had a chance to spend time with him on the streets before the group show he participated in at Thinkspace back in January. As we walked the streets of Cobble Hill looking for the perfect subject/shadow, Ellis seemed to know a lot of […]

Streets: D*Face in Pisa

We love the way that UK artist D*Face combines a healthy mix of pop art with street art, and these pictures of some of his latest outdoor work are no exception. D*Face was recently invited out to Italy by Rate Civic Pisano – Pisa Town Council – to paint a mural dedicated to Keith Haring, who was commissioned by the town to paint his rare “permanent” mural “Tuttomondo” in the city exactly 20 years ago. Read on for further details after the jump…

Streets: WK Interact in NYC

AM continues to be blown away by the explosive power of WK Interact. For “Motion Portrait,” his current show at Jonathan Levine Gallery (covered), the Frenchman created a series of pieces entitled “Twelve Angry Men.” These works personify the prejudice, turmoil and conflict experienced in the classic play and film. In his recent video press conference, WK hinted that he would be taking his portraits out on the streets. We are very happy to report that he has remained true to his word. Not only do we agree […]

Streets/Video: ABOVE hits up the Berlin Wall

ABOVE (interviewed) continues his trip throughout Europe with a stop in Berlin, Germany, making his mark on the Berlin Wall a little over 20 years after Ronald Regan made his historic speech at Brandenburg Gate stating, “Mr. Gorbachev, open this gate. Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall!” Detailed photos and a video of ABOVE’s massive word/play piece and how he marked the anniversary of the bridge to this divide after the jump…

Streets/Video: Know Hope

After his amazing debut Los Angeles solo show, Israeli street artist Know Hope made his way over to the Big Apple and worked a pretty sick street mural at the Hotel Chelsea that was commissioned by No Longer Empty. Luckily for us, all the action was caught on the time-lapse video above. Discuss Know Hope here.

Streets: Os Gemeos Mural Replaces Keith Haring Tribute in NYC

People that have visited New York in the last year may remember seeing the Keith Haring day-glo mural recreated on the corner of Houston and Bowery in honor of the artist’s 50th birthday. Earlier this week, word circulated that the mural had been whited-out. But what was at first sad news has turned out to be good news. Guess which pair of street art twins (hint: They’re from Brazil) have stepped up and are already working this iconic spot? None other than Os Gemeos! Fresh […]

Interview: Elbow-Toe Hits Up Streets of London

Brian Adam Douglas aka Elbow-Toe has been busy since we last caught up with him at his Los Angeles solo show. Pasting up his hand-painted woodcut paper pieces and dropping some poetry in London’s hottest spots, he’s reminding our friends across the pond that there’s more to street art than just stencils and graffiti. We’ll show you photos from the three person show he opened with Swoon (interviewed) and Matt Small (interviewed) last weekend later, but first, we bring you an interview with Elbow-Toe and […]

Streets: Mantis (not Banksy)

A couple days ago, we got news of a new Banksy mural up in “Old Street” London. Our first thought: makes sense, “Old Street” is one of his trademark spots to tag. But, something didn’t seem right. For example, it wasn’t signed by the Bristol bomber. Turns out it was the work of another UK artist – Mantis. Mantis’ clever use of the banana peels (ala Banksy’s “Pulp Fiction” previously at the same spot) had many fooled. Check out pics of this historic spot and […]

Streets/Video: ABOVE – “Ears, Tears, & Fears”

ABOVE (interviewed) made a stop in Madrid, Spain as part of his current European tour. He made sure to give the locals a little love with some fresh street pieces that highlight his excellent placement skills and clever play on words. A video and detailed photos of both pieces after the jump.

Shepard Fairey Helps Restore Italy with SMS Venice

It appears Swoon wasn’t the only artist in Venice recently.  Shepard Fairey and his boys were also spotted spending a few weeks to “restore Venice.” The purpose of their visit wasn’t to vacation in the grand canals of Venice, but to create works for the SMS Venice Foundation. The works were donated by Shepard to promote the preservation of artistic and architectural heritage of the historic city of Venice. More after the jump.
