Rutger Brandt Gallery in Amsterdam is currently showing the first solo show by the Anna Bittersohl in the Netherlands. You Grow in Your Garden marks the continuation of the her interests in observations and memories as the base for human existence and the truth.

From small picture of berries seen as secret treasures […]
After quick stop to Amsterdam to create their contribution for an upcoming street art museum, SNIK traveled up to Manchester to paint their mural for the Cities of Hope project.

After three exhibitions with the gallery’s “big brother” V1 gallery, the NYC-based artist presented his latest body of work in their clean white cube space in the former meatpacking district, ranging from smaller studies on paper, to massive, billboard size canvases. The entire show developed from earlier where James started incorporating more and more elaborate interior elements around his images. Basing some of the […]
The 30th anniversary edition of the London Art Fair opened to the public on Wednesday with 131 exhibitors participating. Traditionally focused on British Modern and Contemporary Art, the fair’s outlook is becoming increasingly global. AM understands that a quarter of the galleries this year are based outside the UK.

Perched precariously on a big eye, perhaps a referencing one of the key features of the lowbrow luminary’s work, is a mind-blowingingly accurate replication […]
