Openings: Rob Sato – “The Open End” @ Copro Gallery

Last weekend, the Copro Gallery unveiled new work by artist Rob Sato. Named The Open End, the exhibition showed a variety of the artist’s latest art which continues to be nothing short of impressive. Various pieces on display featured a combination of the organic and the mechanical, but without going to either side of the spectrum. As usual, his artwork features a great sense of storytelling and movement that’s not always easy to capture on a canvas or print. However, his technique and style lends […]

Streets: London Instagram Roundup

Again it’s been a busy couple of weeks for street art in London. AM was happy to catch sight of some new work by Mr Penfold, collaborating with Sweet Toof and a brilliant bandit style shutter with the prolific Malarky whose work seems to be going up everywhere. Either collaborating with Ronzo, Pop 187, Kata, Word to Mother and Vinnie Nylon, the streets seem to be taking on a bold and colourful make over with playful characters adorning the shutters and walls of Shoreditch. We also […]

Openings: Tauba Auerbach – “A Book Is Not An X” @ John McWhinnie & GHB

On Friday, Tauba Auerbach unveiled a truly unique body of work at John McWhinnie @ GHB in East Hampton, NY. The show entitled A Book Is Not An X (previewed) is a play on a statement she made last year in an Artforum review of Carsten Nicolai’s book Grid Index: “a book is an X-axis. The format is almost always linear; the content, bound in a prescribed order, marches single file.” For this exhibition Tauba created six “books” and each plays on this notion and […]

Streets: Futura (New York)

It’s nice to see street legend Futura active in New York again. The last time we saw him hit up his home city, he was creating an epic collaboration piece with Os Gemeos at a Chelsea public school (P.S. 11). This time, he’s working in his spirographic abstractions on this wall in Brooklyn adjacent to work from his friends Stash and Wane. More photos after the jump…

Openings: Olek – The Bad Artists Imitate, The Great Artists Steal @ Jonathan LeVine Gallery

It’s been a while since we’ve caught up with artist Agata Oleksiak aka Olek. Last time, she took on Wall Street and its famous charging bull and this time, she’s exhibiting her works in a solo at Jonathan LeVine Gallery. The show title The Bad Artist Imitate, The Great Artists Steal may sound familiar because you probably saw it mentioned most recently from Banksy at his Bristol Museum show and previously from master Pablo Picasso. Being a performance artist, she got a few helpers to become […]

Openings: Andrew Schoultz & Paul Klee – “Images in Dialogue” @ SFMOMA

Just this Saturday, the SFMOMA hosted an intriguing posthumous dialogue between Swiss-born Modernist Paul Klee and the very much living Andrew Schoultz (previewed). Images in Dialogue featured new works from the SF-based Schoultz displayed side by side with Klee’s work with the former pieces created in response to the latter’s paintings. When Schoultz was first approached by SFMOMA curator, John Zarobell regarding the project, he was familiar with Klee’s work, but did not consider him direct influence. As he did more research, he was surprised […]

Videos: Banksy’s “The Antics Roadshow”

For our readers who aren’t located in the UK, you probably haven’t seen Banksy’s one hour TV special, The Antics Roadshow, which aired on Channel 4 over the weekend. Titled as a pun on the Antiques Roadshow, a long-running British television show, Banksy explores the “history of behaving badly in public, from anarchists and activists to attention seeking eccentrics” including many interviews and re-enactments with the actual protagonists. Discuss Banksy here.
