Update: Josh Keyes – “Sprout” @ David B. Smith Gallery

All of us here at AM are big fans of Josh Keyes’ work, and after our recent trip to Denver for the opening of his latest solo show “Sprout” at David B. Smith Gallery, we thought it would be interesting to look at the interactive installations again after they have been in place for a few weeks to see just how the sprouting went… Read on for more pictures after the jump.

Update/Video: Os Gemeos Mural in NYC

Last week, we brought you some images of the beginnings of an epic mural that the Brazilian brothers Os Gemeos were working on in NY.  Here is a video of how it looks at about midpoint. (Be sure to click on the the “HQ” button on the bottom right if you get an error message.  Most of the mural has fleshed out and now it appears they are just working on the details. Look for a final wrap-up later in the week when they finish […]

Preview/Setup: EINE – “The A – Z of Change” @ Carmichael Gallery

AM swung by the Carmichael Gallery in West Hollywood today to meet the legendary UK street artist EINE. It was a pleasure meeting the man behind so many amazing street pieces the world over. We hung out for about 30 minutes, catching up with the artist, the staff and snapping some shots to share with you all – all after the jump…

Preview: WK Interact “Motion Portrait” @ Jonathan Levine Gallery

Peep this little preview of “Motion Portrait” by WK Interact. It’s set to open this Saturday at Jonathan Levine Gallery. The French artist, who’s well known for his energetic style, will unveil a large scale group of portraits called “12 Angry Men” (loosely based on the classic film). These large 6 feet by 6 feet portraits move to convey the dynamic expressions of his powerful characters in raw emotion. There will also be a few of his signature kinetic door pieces such as the “Crosby […]

Art Basel Vernissage – Basel Week Switzerland

Art Basel Switzerland is hands-down the Mecca of the art world. Once a year, the industry’s elite galleries converge in Europe to celebrate and exchange some of the most coveted pieces by the world’s top art stars. This year of course wasn’t much different, although many collectors came to shop for their dream pieces of art and many came in search of bargains. It seems that galleries were recession conscious as they priced their inventory at prices which would entice even the most thrifty art fans. […]

Close-Up: Banksy’s Studio Installation @ Bristol Museum

In our last article, AM showed you some great pictures of Banksy’s latest show in Bristol from the special preview night. Sir Banksy demonstrated that he could create a show that seamlessly weaved his witty street-cred with the pompous realm of high-society. Considering the limited time we had to enjoy the show, we went back on opening day to bring you a closer look at the mock-up of Banksy’s actual studio. Read on after the jump…

Update: Banksy “Summer Show” @ Bristol City Museum?

Looks like the resourceful people over at Bristol Street Art have perhaps confirmed what has been suspected to be the location of Banksy’s surprise show – Bristol’s City Museum on Queen’s Road.  They went as far as taking a picture through the small gap in the front doors.  According to them, it looks like something Banksy did in 2007 in Glastonbury.  Apparently a private viewing “may” be held on the 12th of June with a public viewing starting on the 13th of June (usual museum opening hours 10 […]

Murakami x Pharrell x Jacob the Jeweler @ Galerie Emmanuel Perrotin – Basel Week Switzerland

Last time we were with Pharrell & Galerie Emmanuel Perrotin, it was at Art Basel Miami. Over a half year later, they reveal this secret project at Art Basel Switzerland. Check this amazing collaboration between Takashi Murakami, Pharrell Williams and Jacob & Co – a mind blowing sculpture entitled “The Simple Things.” Think Superflat meets hip hop and Metroid. The sculpture is based on Murakami’s signature “DOB” character and features an onyx fiberglass husk with a pearlescent glow to compliment the vibrant rainbow colors which […]

Openings: Slinkachu – “Whatever Happened to the Men of Tomorrow” @ Andipa Gallery

Anyone who has watched the recently released movie “Watchmen” will recognize the themes behind images of fat and balding superheros in miniature photographer and artist Slinkachu’s newest show. AM brings you coverage from the special preview of his show “Whatever Happened to the Men of Tomorrow” at Andipa Gallery. The UK “street” artist, who first gained fame for his “Little People Project” (photographs of tiny models in the streets of London), named this show after Alan Moore’s similarly named book which explores what happens to […]
