It was hard to miss Kid Acne‘s Oh My Days mural on the side of the Village Underground in London earlier this year. Here at AM we love the Acne sloganeering approach to graffiti and oh happy days that the boy Ackers has just released a screenprint based upon the huge wall. Oh My Days is a 2 colour screenprint, signed numbered and embossed in an edition of 50 and available right now via his shop. Discuss Kid Acne here.

Take a look at the events of the night in the photos below [...]

This past winter, Tauba Auerbach returned to her hometown of San Francisco and visited the studios of master printers Paulson Bott Press to create an exceptional fine art edition.

Drawing on a simple theory of stretching mesh, Ms. Auerbach warps the symmetrical squares into non-conforming geometric shapes, eventually bending the very pattern which she started [...]
