Preview/Interviews: Herakut “Dirty Laundry” Show (UK)

German collaborative duo Herakut will be opening a show entitled “Dirty Laundry” on November 28th. The show was organized by campobarbossa who arranged for a venue in London’s Covent Garden. All the works are pre-commissioned paintings and sketches so this will strictly be an exhibition with no sales. We quite like the combination of Akut’s photorealistic spray paint and Hera’s more fluid broad strokes.  Jasmin aka Hera took some time to answer some questions and share some preview images with us.

Openings: Tin, Kukula, Sas @ Copro Nason

Rounding up AM‘s whirlwind gallery tour of LA last weekend was Copronason’s show of Kukula, Tin, and Sas Christian.

If you already had a […]

Openings: House Industries @ Subliminal Projects

This past Saturday night, Subliminal Projects was decked out in the typographical patterns of House Industries. The Delaware based group showcased a new collection of prints and patterns and transformed the gallery into a graphical delight that showcased just what some simple fonts can do.
