Showing: Josh Keyes – “Collision” @ David B. Smith Gallery

Unfortunately, for the vast majority of the Josh Keyes fans who don’t live in Colorado (like us), seeing the new body of work entitled “Collision” in person will not be possible (unless you bought one). However, we are lucky that there are some exhibition photos of the beautiful pieces in situ at the David B. Smith Gallery through December 11th. The ten paintings in this show were conceived and based on a complex 16th century mythology (explained in detail in our recent interview with Josh) […]

Streets: Hush – “Found” with White Walls in New York

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 […]

Openings: Aakash Nihalani – “Overlap” @ Bose Pacia

A couple weeks ago, Aakash Nihalani’s geometric forms took over the Bose Pacia space in New York. Aakash’s work has certainly progressed from the tape work that initially made his name. The increasingly complex sculptural pieces certainly bring to mind the techniques and imagery of the street pieces they reference, but in a more refined way – a perfect transition to the indoors. More photos after the jump…

Openings: Brian Donnelly – “Obedience & Savagery” @ Show & Tell Gallery

It’s always exciting for us to see emerging artists we enjoy pushing the boat out and really delivering solid showings of work. AM recently brought you a glimpse of what Toronto based artist Brian Donnelly was bringing to his solo exhibition “Obedience and Savagery”, which opened last week at Show & Tell Gallery, and after seeing these preview images we had high hopes for the rest of the work. Donnelly’s animal/human mash-ups were shown alongside Winnie Truong’s delicate coloured pencil work in the form of […]

Streets: Interesni Kazki in Barcelona

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 […]

Releases / Giveaway: Paul Insect – ‘Unclear Residents’ Folio @ Pictures on Walls

AM stopped by Paul Insect’s folio release event at Pictures on Walls last week to take a look at the ‘Unclear Residents‘ set. The evening presented a series of Paul’s screen-printed targets pasted about the walls, along with the selection of prints and a huge bank of page-spreads from the two limited zines available in the hand-made folio. At the time of writing, the edition of 80 sets seems to be close to sold out, with just 3 sets remaining. The scrapbook ‘Beat the Devils‘ and the […]

Openings: Tiffany Bozic – “Confiding to Strangers” @ Joshua Liner Gallery

Last week, Tiffany Bozic took a fresh batch of works (previewed) to the Joshua Liner Gallery for her exhibition “Confiding to Strangers”. This latest series was breathtaking to say the least as pieces consisting of paper and wood impressed the New York crowd that beelined their way to the show. Apparent in the artwork was Tiffany’s vision and talent that seems to mix Discovery Channel fascination with the imagination of an artist with a unique vision. Check out the force of nature after the jump.

Teaser: Basel Week Miami ’10 – “It Ain’t Fair” @ OHWOW

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 […]

Preview: Mantis “Altered State” solo exhibition

Self organised solo exhibitions seem to be a popular way of showcasing your art here in the UK over recent times, and the latest AM has got wind of is “Altered State” by Mantis this Thursday night. This has the makings of something a little different though, as Mantis is staging his exhibition in the disused Lord Napier pub in Hackey Wick over the course of one weekend. New works on show will include paintings, sculpture and small scale prints. The concept behind the prints […]
