If you remember, we brought you some “Halloweenism” from LUDO (interviewed) recently. Now, take a look at some of the origins of the series with the “co-branding” project that he’s been working on concurrently in Paris. The “Del Monte” trash can we posted last month was the first piece of this new series, so it looks like he’s branching out from his “Nature’s Revenge” imagery somewhat. Take a look at more bus stop interventions after the jump… Discuss Ludo here.
The Absolut art collection is moving back to the motherland. Will Pop Art market turn into a similar market as Sub-Prime Mortgages? Comedic actor Jim Carrey – now a serious painter? Dog bowls by Ed Ruscha, Kenny Scharf, Robert Longo and more. Jay Z talks about his art collection. Family matters: Guy Wildenstein’s step-mother dies; sues him from beyond the grave Larry Gagosian – Los Angeles resident. Consider him an Angeleno, folks. Happy 90th birthday to living legend Wayne Thiebaud. SFMOMA celebrated with coffee & […]
WK Interact, who we last saw at the RE:FORM School show and Beyond the Street NY book launch, recently completed a massive mural. Billed as the NY-based street artist’s largest piece yet at 200 x 7 meters, the project at the General National Archives in Mexico City features some of his signature imagery and movement blurs. More photos after the jump… Via Vandalog. Discuss WK Interact.
It looks like Aiko recently completed a new mural in the Bronx. The wall references much of her recent imagery as well as big “Bunny” tag. If you are in NY, head over the 163rd and Park Ave and take a look for yourself. More photos after the jump… Photos via the artist. Discuss Aiko here.
Hush (interviewed) is in the Big Apple and already making his mark on the Lower East Side. In preparation for his upcoming show “Found” on Friday (Nov 19th) at the White Walls‘ pop up location of Angel Orensanz Foundation For Contemporary Art, the UK street artist is busy elevating his exposure to the streets of New York. Braving windy conditions of up to 50 mph, AM and Hush caught a (legit) wall on the corner of Stanton & Norfolk to display a live painting session of one of […]
AM has been keeping a close eye on AEC and Waone, who together form the Ukranian duo Interesni Kazki (Interesting Fairy Tales). Earlier this year, the two Kiev-based artists had a solo show at Galerie All Over in Lyon, France. Last month, original drawings by them were displayed at Pictures On Walls in a group show coinciding with the launch (featured) of Tristan Manco‘s new book, Street Sketchbook: Journeys. Another exhibition of their colourful fantasy-world creations will be held next spring in Milan. Interesni Kazki […]
As Art Basel Miami Beach continues to strengthen it’s foothold as one of the premiere global contemporary art fairs, South Beach native OHWOW will yet again be an important player in the week’s festivities with their third installment of the now famous It Ain’t Fair. With many of the local gallery’s own roster of artists, along with many returning cross-genre art superstars from last years ambitious showing (covered), the annual well-endowed group exhibition will be required viewing for all traveling down to The Sunshine State […]
AM rarely experiences the sensation of studio envy, but the pang certainly hit us upon arriving at Retna‘s abode and work space. It was pretty much a “Holy Guacamole!” moment. And we don’t even like Robin. The studio in the Arts District of Downtown Los Angeles apparently measures some 3,500 square feet. We immediately knew it would be perfect for the AM team training sessions in preparation for the international synchronised hula hooping championships. Unfortunately, Retna wasn’t very keen on the idea of subletting to […]
The piece above is titled “One Day This Kid…” by David Wojnarowicz. In light of recent bullying inflicted upon GLBTQ youth – making it a national issue – this work of art is important and powerful. Share it by downloading the image to print out here. Left without a home since the closing of Deitch Projects, Keith Haring estate joins Gladstone Gallery. Scott Campbell burns his own sold out show in dispute with gallery. Why he did it. Yvonne Force Villareal house includes artwork by […]
Some weeks back, AM spent time with Ernesto Yerena Montejano at his garage studio in Los Angeles. Over the course of three and a half years, until summer 2009, Yerena worked as an artist assistant for Shepard Fairey at both Studio Number One and Studio Number Two (featured). We were able to have a look around as he now prepared for GANAS 2020, his debut solo show which opens this Saturday, November 13th at White Walls Gallery in San Francisco and runs until December 4th. The exhibition is named after a fictional community-based movement Yerena has created […]
Another masterpiece from Blu went up in Rennes recently with the artist painting a creature made from our unwanted and discarded trash. Perhaps like the Tin Man in “The Wizard of Oz”, it seems to have found a heart for itself. Take a closer look after the jump… Photos via the artist and lolhiphop. Discuss Blu here.
Apparently, that mural Ron English (featured) was working on in Miami that we first brought you here is completed. He ended with a cool extension of the wall piece onto the ground and with the placement of some of his “Camo Deer” figures. We first saw these pieces at his impressive “Status Factory” pop-up show in New York (covered) and for west coast fans of his work, make sure you stop by on Friday night (November 12th) as the show moves to the Frank M.
