Scott Musgrove Summer Online Show (2011)

A couple years back, we brought you word of an opportunity to purchase some nicely priced works from Scott Musgrove (featured). Included in this rendition of his summer online show are affordably priced studies, small watercolors, and drawings (including a sketch of part of a painting that we highlighted in a creative process article). His next solo won’t be until 2012 in Rome, so don’t pass this chance by if you are looking to acquire something from Scott. More of the work available as of […]
Space Invader @ Paris (France)

Openings: Invader – “1000” @ Galerie Le Feuvre (Paris)

Yesterday night in Paris, resident street tilemaster Invader put on the mother of all shows to celebrate getting up for the 1000th time at La Générale, organized by Gallerie Le Feuvre. Almost as impressive as the amount of work the French artist created is that fact that it seems he meticulously documented everything as evidenced by a large wall covered by what looks to be a photo of every single piece (perhaps not surprising as being obsessive-compulsive may run in his blood seeing his cousin […]

Matthew Palladino Fredricks Freiser am 01

Interviews: Matthew Palladino

Currently showing at New York’s Fredericks and Freiser, Matthew Palladino’s latest exhibition simply entitled New Work is about to come to the end of its run on June 11th. AM has heard that of the four of the new pieces created for the exhibition – his first showing in a Chelsea gallery – one of the paintings was acquired by the Whitney Museum for it’s permanent collection. We’ve enthused over Palladino’s work in the past, and wondered where he would take his dynamic and versatile painting […]

Streets: Phlegm – “Shrines and Caskets”

Looks like Phlegm has found a new location and is continuing to work on murals for his forthcoming photographic edition of his zine Phlegm Comic. If you remember, the UK-based artist had taken us on a tour of an abandoned school where he had spent time getting up a series of works, also slated for the epic comic which has been two years in the making. For those impatiently waiting for the wall zine, you may want to check out a separate project presumably to be […]

Opening this Thursday June 9th at Brooklyn’s Muriel Guepin Gallery is Based on a True Story, a show featuring the work of Supakitch, along with Japanese artist Tamiko Kawata.

He has shown extensively around the world, however, this is his first major NYC exhibition since relocating to Brooklyn, so we’re […]
