Streets: Blu for “Draw The Line Festival” (Italy)

Continuing to tear through Europe (Bologna, Palestra, Jesi, Krakow, Poznań, Fabriano, Cologne, Grottaglie, Valencia, Italy) at a torrid pace since March, Blu has hit up his home country again at the Draw The Line Festival in Campobasso, Italy. This new wall caused some initial controversy, of which the Italian street artist is not unfamiliar with after the MOCA incident, and features his views on war and a biting rendition of how the military produces their soldiers.

Openings: Chet Zar – “Faces of Death” @ Last Rites Gallery

Last Friday night in New York, Chet Zar (interviewed) unveiled his latest series of work enititled Faces of Death at the Last Rites Gallery.

Teaser: KAWS @ Honor Fraser

KAWS fans in LA may remember his last showing in the City of Angels not only for the great art, but also for the long lines and large crowds they had to battle to get a look at their favorite artist.  Well, let that be a lesson the second time around as he will be returning to Honor Fraser scheduled for a September 10th opening (perhaps with some Hennessy for attendees to sample).  If these new images and his recent showing with the gallery at […]

Openings: Kid Acne – ‘Kill Your Darlings’ @ Sheffield Museum’s Millenium Gallery

AM was in Sheffield last weekend for the official opening of Kid Acne’s three month run of the Kill Your Darlings solo exhibition at Sheffield Museum’s Millenium Gallery. The exhibition is his first solo show in his now-base of Sheffield, and as it’s hard to walk around the city without catching a glimpse of his outdoor murals and graffiti, it made a nice change to see some of his work in an indoor setting in South Yorks. The exhibition serves as a retrospective of sorts as he […]

Anthony Michael Sneed recently opened his solo exhibition Grand Illusion at San Francisco’s Shooting Gallery. The New York based artist has been previously known for his humorous works of retro 8-bit video game iconography, but this body of work is an elevation into a new level of abstraction and color theory. Utilizing simple palettes with detailed premeditated placement, Anthony created works that renders fantastic optical illusions in both 2-D and 3-D. His beautiful paintings and wooden installations seem to blend together effortlessly in the gallery […]
