What a difference a day makes… Well, another 24 hours later and the Manifest Hope DC show is beginning to take shape! What caught our eye during the madness are the installation and works by on site artist Mike Murphy. He has more than a few significant pieces for this show and a crew of over 15 assistants working to get these beauties ready for the opening. Mike was gracious enough to give us a quick overview of the his major pieces. Continue reading after […]

As previously posted, pop surrealist superstar Mark Ryden will be showing next month at top Tokyo gallery Tomio Koyama. However, it seems he can’t wait until then to share at least one of his new images with the public, as next Tuesday at 8am PST, Ryden will release Fur Girl as a limited edition lithographic poster. With its beautifully subdued color palate, and haunting image, this new print is sure to sell quick. Read all the details after the jump.
AM is on-site at Manifest Hope DC and it is getting hectic at the gallery. It’s midnight here and the crew of over 30 volunteers are now running on Red Bull and Red Stripe. We are at ground zero of this awesomeÂ show andÂ only a few days before the show goes live. With giant installations under construction from Mike Murphy and Kelly Towles, the place is abuzz with power-saws and drills. The other part of the crew is busy unpacking the never ending stream of boxes […]
The first great group show of 2009 went down last weekend at White Walls SF. Usually group shows are headlined by a few established artists and a bunch of lesser knowns, but “Family First” (previewed) featured a large and diverse group of great artists like Ian Francis, Andrew Schoultz, Richard Colman, Sylvia Ji, Shepard Fairey, Shawn Barber, Jim Houser, Mike Giant, Adam Flores, and AJ Fosik just to name a few… Be sure you stop by for a look if you haven’t already…you don’t see […]
AM was in attendance Saturday night for the opening of Italian street artist Ericailcane’s first Los Angeles solo show entitled “Man is the Bastard” (previewed) at Carmichael Gallery. The highlights of the show were the massive installation pieces that covered both of the gallery’s front walls, ominously greeting attendees with a taste of the absurd scenarios found in the rest of the work on display. Ericailcane’s intricate drawings and etchings, presented in a dream-like style reminiscent of childhood storybooks and fairytales, features clever imagery of […]

One of the artists that most impressed us at Art Basel, Mark Ryden, is set to show in one of Japan’s most prestigious galleries Tomio Koyama in February. The show is entitled “Snow Yak,” and from the looks of things, Mark is continuing with “snowy white” as his color palette that we saw at the Tomio Koyama booth at Art Basel (here).Â We obtained a few teaser images to whet your appetite til the show opens next month in Tokyo. Stay tuned as AM has […]
Oakland artist Deth P. Sun had his first solo show in his hometown since 2002 yesterday entitled “This Too Shall Pass” at the Rowan Morrison Gallery. Especially eye catching was the wall of small paintings carefully fitted together seen above. The exhibition closes on February 14th with the release of his first published book, â€œI See It All.” The 64-page book replicates the sequence, size and paper-weight of one of Sunâ€™s moleskin journals. Openings pics after the jump.
As anticipated, it was announced that Josh Keyes’ next print will be of his piece from Art Basel Week, “The Call I.”Â As demand for his work has skyrocketed, it has been increasingly harder for collectors to get their hands on his prints, let alone his originals. Well, here is a chance for a “easy” purchase hopefully as this will be the large edition release for the year with a sign & numbered run of 750. These will be an archival giclee on embossed hahnemuhle […]
Thinkspace and Ad Hoc Art pulled out all the stops for the opening of “From the Streets of Brooklyn” (teased and previewed) and Los Angeles was out in full force, packing the gallery to the brim to scope out the work from Brooklyn’s best graf writers, wheatpasters, muralists, and stencilers. For most patrons, this was their first opportunity to see the work of AIKO, Bast, Chris Stain, Dan Witz,Â Elbow-Toe, Faile, Skewville,Â Swoon, Thundercut, and the other participating artists in person. Also on display were three amazing […]
