The UK street artist will be showing jointly with C215 in “Paradise Lost” (teased), both of which are known for their stencil work.

Previews: Greg Simkins – “Drawn from the Well” Book @ Dragon Con

Earlier this year, we stopped by the Torrence studio of Greg “Craola” Simkin to catch a preview of his knockout show at Joshua Liner Gallery and experienced an eyeful of goodness from the talented artist. If you couldn’t get enough of Greg’s dreamy artwork, we have a special surprise we held back as he shared with us the proof sheets of his upcoming book – “Drawn from the Well”. The 300 page book of his drawings is set to make it’s debut at this year’s […]

Video: David Choe x Machete (The Movie)

Sure to be cult movie classic, Machete, is being released this Friday and you can be sure AM will be in line for this one. However, one person who we know has been lucky enough to see the movie already is David Choe (featured). For once, the suits did the right thing and chose one the grimiest artists out there to create some of the movie’s promotional material. Take a look at the video above as David discusses the creative process behind the project – […]

Teaser: Dan Quintana – “Ethos Astray” @ Last Rites Gallery

Dan Quintana, whom we last saw show at Copro Gallery in January, is opening a new exhibition at the Last Rites Gallery in New York this weekend. The new body of work entitled “Ethos Astry” will be sure to include Quintana’s beautiful women, often masked in elaborate headdresses with a grotesque twist. Take a plunge with us into his fantasy world this Saturday, September 4th at the opening. Discuss Dan Quintana here. Discuss this show here.

New Banksy Videos

Along with the batch of photographs Banksy posted of his new work on his website the other day, he also released two videos. One is a dolphin ride for kids, but modified with netting and barrel with a crude oil leak with typical Banksy humor.  Also, if you look carefully at the video after the jump, you may be seeing Mr. B. himself in disguise heckling Prince Charles.

Highlights: Recommended Openings for Sept. 1st – Sept. 4th

The official launch of the fall art season is upon us and with it an amazing array of high profile shows are opening the world over this weekend. From big solo shows in Los Angeles from the likes of Sarah Joncas, Buff Monster, Dabs Myla, Nathan Ota, and Yumiko Kayukawa to big solo shows in San Francisco from Stanley Donwood and in the UK from Guy Denning. All that and I didn’t even mention Kent Williams’ big solo in NM and Brendan Monroe’s show in […]

Preview: Evah Fan – “Come What May” @ Galerie L.J.

Yesterday, we brought you a preview of Brendan Monroe’s (interviewed) body of work for a Paris in a joint exhibit with Evah Fan. Today, we can give you a glimpse of Evah’s work as well ahead of the opening this Saturday night at Galerie L.J. Looking through some of the preview images from this show, what strikes us is how unpredictable her narrative is, with unexpected surprises in each piece that lead us to think “what is going on here?” At the same time, we […]

Streets: Blu in Madrid

Blu’s amazing largescale works are now expected to be amazing whenever we hear of something new from the Italian street artist. What we really need now is a big solo show for him to see how his works translate in the gallery setting – hopefully we’ll get to see something like that from him soon. Here is his latest piece (in Madrid), again taking aim of one of his favorite targets – the corporate fat cats. A closer look after the jump…

Streets: Sam3 & Liqen Collab in Spain

We had just been introduced to Liqen and one of his collaborations recently and here we already see him creating another joint mural, this time with Spanish compatriot Sam3. This piece in Pontevedra, entitled Sirena II, has one of Liqen’s fanciful monochromatic white works taking a little swim with clusters of Sam3’s signature shadow people. See the whole mural and some detailed shots after the jump…
