With Baby Tattooville coming up in a couple weeks (see associated museum show), we’ll be bringing you some interviews with the participating artists. First up is another Q&A session (see 2009) between AM and Eric Fortune. Severe angles contrasted by a hazy atmosphere are the hallmarks of the Columbus, Ohio based artist’s work. He was recently featured on the cover of Hi-Fructose, and he is coming off recent shows at Copro Gallery, Gallery Nucleus and Roq La Rue. Check out the full interview below, but be […]

Currently showing in London at Victorio Miro, Pumpkins from Yayoi Kusuma is an exhibition that features one of her most famous motifs. The celebration of the fruit in question was approached from different angles by Kusama, utilizing her various skill sets – paintings, large mosaic sculptures inside the gallery, and bronzes in the water garden. Despite the familiarity of the iconic subject matter for the Japanese artist, the bronzes do represent the first time she has worked in that medium on such a large scale and they alone are […]
Baby Tattooville 2014 is fast approaching so we will start bringing preview coverage of the event starting with this look at something currently showing at the Riverside Art Museum.

Tomorrow, September 19th, Pryce Lee will unveil a brand new exhibition in Mexico City’s Anonymous Gallery. Entitled Fish in a Barrel, this fresh body of work continues his exploration of the fragility & violence that is part of human society with his signature bullet embedded sculptures. This show also serves as the inaugural exhibition for Anonymous Gallery’s new space in Mexico. This fascinating show is a must see if you’re in the region and will be up until October 26th. Lee actually has travelled to Mexico to work in […]
Opening on Saturday, September 20 is the first solo show by gallery artist Rob Sato at Martha Otero. The LA-based artist will exhibit to his home-town audience mainly works on paper, but will also include baseballs (he played the sport as a kid) and sketchbooks. The presentation will tie personal, fictional, and historical narratives that the artist processes into his own visual aesthetic to explore his own ideas of memory, space, and time. One highlight of the show is Sato’s epic project Five Movements For […]
Yesterday, AM stopped by Thinkspace Gallery to take a look at the new body of work from Kelly Vivanco. Entitled Peculiar Tides, the fresh paintings worked off a nautical theme where her characters are situated in seaside or underwater environments. Completing the whimsical nature of the show was an installation of ship sculptures (seen above) on a wall of waves, where some of the creatures seen in her work can be seen piloting the vessels.

London based abstract artist O.Two is currently in France painting a commissioned wall at a large concert venue in La Rochelle and he sent us along a few progress pictures of the piece coming together. The mural combines his typographically inclined abstract stylings with figurative elements – somewhat of a first for him. Also known as James Carey, O.Two is combining the trip with an exhibition at Winterlong Galerie set to open this Thursday, September 18th entitled Flux. The show will feature 10 new paintings […]
Right on the heals of a successful opening of his solo in Los Angeles (covered), KAWS has returned for a second engagement at Harbour City in Hong Kong. The star of the event was a new sculptural installation featuring a cluster of his signature companion figures entitled Clean Slate, situated in the Ocean Terminal forecourt where his previous massive Passing Through companion could be seen back in 2010 (covered). Complementing this was the New York-based artist’s imagery all along the corridor leading into the shopping complex […]

AM was on hand for Jenny Morgan’s 13th solo, The Golden Hour, at Denver’s Plus Gallery. The buzz around the exhibition was palpable with Morgan being on the cover of the August issue of Juxtapoz. The fact that this is a homecoming of sorts (she studied art at The Rocky Mountain College of Art & Design and had interned at the gallery) made the show even more high energy. When viewing the eight new works, the most marked change is a color palette relying more on yellow, orange and red gradients to […]
