Streets: Shepard Fairey – New York City Recap (Part 1)

In association with our blow by blow coverage of Shepard Fairey’s landmark “May Day” show that capped off a bittersweet goodbye to the now closed Deitch Projects, we thought it would be a good time to bring you a recap of the street action conducted by Shep and his industrious Obey crew. In addition to creating the high profile and massive mural at the corner of Houston & Bowery, Shep invited AM to tag along on two more “legal” endeavors. The first was the parking lot on the […]

Update: Mark Dean Veca – “When the Shit Hits the Fan” @ Western Project

AM stopped by Mark Dean Veca’s (interviewed) studio last week to take a look at the new body of work for his show at Western Project, opening September 18. When we first brought you a teaser image last month, there wasn’t a name for the show, but now it’s tentatively entitled “When the Shit Hits the Fan.” The paintings for the show fit thematically together and will make more sense of the recent work you have seen from Mark. Keep it locked here as we’ll […]

We had the opportunity to get together with Eric for a session of questions and answers as well as getting an advanced look at some of the pieces in this show.

Streets: Os Gemeos x Futura in NYC (Part 2)

After posting the mural project between Os Gemeos & Futura, we thought it wouldn’t be right to be in NYC and not stop by for an onsite AM look behind this project. The twins (Octavio & Gustavo) took an early crack at the legal mural space which is actually a Chelsea public school (P.S. 11) and is made possible by support from Nike, Montana Colors, and Allen Benedikt of 12oz Prophet & AKANYC. The ginormous figure measures over seven stories tall and from what you […]
