Over the weekend in Los Angeles, the Copro Gallery opened the fourth edition of their sculptural group show curated by Chet Zar (interviewed). Entitled Conjoined IV: A New Beginning, the exhibition featured the work of many talented artists and sculptors out there, some of which work in the film industry. One of the stand out pieces was an amazingly realistic tribute to Andy Warhol by Kazuhiro Tsuji (seen above next to his work) that must be seen in person to be believed. Take a look at a selection […]

Yesterday, AM stopped by the 19th edition Los Angeles Art Fair at the LA Convention Center to see what the art world had to offer. Although the event lacked some some of the blue-chip power seen at some other art fairs, there was still plenty to hold our attention including the new Littletopia section of of the fair that included art from a genre often not seen at this particular fair. Take a look at some of the highlights (like the barbed wire slippers installation by Tony […]
One of the booths we were excited to see at the NADA (New Art Dealers Alliance) art fair during Art Basel Week was by New York Collective The Still House Group. Interestingly enough when we arrived, all we found was a cryptic Xerox copy machine asking us to press the button. Upon following the directive, we received a photocopy of directions to the middle of South Beach where the group was holding a substantial group exhibition entitled Straight II DVD. This very stimulating showcase brought together a selection […]
Currently on view through January 19th in Taiwan is an exhibition featuring the surreal sculptures of Johnson Tsang. Entitled Living Clay, the exhibition sees the Hong Kong-based ceramic artist present a full repertoire of works at the Yingge Ceramics Museum including his whimsical takes on functional objects with characters in fluid play with the forms. Along with these fun pieces, Tsang also tackles social political issues like war, violence, and the influence of media in our children. Take a look at more photos below… Via Colassal.
French artist Ludo (interviewed) welcomed us in his Paris workspace just before Christmas in the middle of working on his big solo show in NYC with Jonathan LeVine gallery. Only few days after his studio was also visited by the actor Christopher Lambert who showed big interest in his work, we talked with Ludo about his upcoming show, his career and his plans. Coming from a graphic design background, he always liked the idea of illegally placing his work in public, so he started creating street work […]
During Art Basel Week in Miami, one of the artists that caught our attention was Li Hongbo and his flexible paper sculptures. Represented by the Klein Sun Gallery at Art Miami & CONTEXT, the Chinese artist and former book editor presented pieces that look like solid and often created in a classic style, yet when stretched, the entire concept that the viewer had of his work is flipped upside down. For those in New York who are interested, he’ll be opening a new show tonight at Klein Sun […]
Tomorrow, January 9th, ZieherSmith in New York will be presenting a new solo show from Allison Schulnik, her second with the gallery. The opening will mark the premiere of her latest stop-motion claymation film entitled Eager along with new related paintings, sculpture, and works on paper. If her some of her previous films (for example – Mound) are any indication, fans in NYC are in for a treat. Here is an intriguing description: “Haunting, hollow specters stretch, transmogrify and multiply as their synchronized shifts hint at ancient, […]
Ron Mandos Gallery in Amsterdam entered the new year with, Heimlich, a solo show by the Dutch artist Maurice van Tellingen. For this exhibition, he created new sculptural works in his familiar style, where his pieces “resemble reality just like reality resembles itself”. The works show a detached detail of an interior or exterior space, by creating and showing all the elements that come along with it – from human presence, realistic texture and details, signs of deterioration, to creating a false source of light. While previous works […]
On view earlier this month at the Black Rat Projects in London was an interesting collaborative show from Candice Tripp (interviewed) and Giles Walker (known for his immersive robotic installations). IʼM NEVER SHOPPING HERE AGAIN included the surreal, dark paintings & sculptural pieces from Tripp as well as some animatronic magic from Walker. The exhibition was hard to capture with photos (although there are some for you to peruse below) so we have included a video to give you a better idea of what went down. Photo credit: Natasa Leoni.
