Nick Walker (interviewed) spent the past two weeks in New York City hitting up various spots with his special brand of stencil magic. He invited AM along on some interactive action with the local urban landscape – some legal and some well … let’s just keep it on the downlow. Scouting the Chelsea/meatpacking district for “prime & available” real estate can be tad difficult at 3 pm in the afternoon, but after a few laps at the usual haunts, we stumbled across the classic mural […]
It looks like V1 Gallery in Copenhagen, the host of Barry McGee & Todd James’ current exhibition is making some lithographic stone prints available of selected pieces from the show. So, if you liked the show and would like a piece of the action, take a look at some print images after the jump and get in contact with the gallery.

The doors open on July 31st at 6 pm ($20 […]
So, it looks like that full “Uncle Six-Eyes” figure (covered here) that was in the works from Travis Louie (interviewed) has been converted to a bust. The prototype from Big Shot Toyworks can be seen at this year’s SDCC but that’s not the only thing Travis has in store for his fans. He will also be releasing a second volume of his postcard collection with Circus Posterus and will be revealing his design for their upcoming skelve figure at the booth. Of course, he will […]

After sharing some photos of the impressive Faile (featured) installation with you recently, we now bring you some video footage from Vernissage TV. Seeing the “Temple” in the context of the surrounding architecture in Praça dos Restauradores, one of the major squares in the center of Lisbon, definitely gives us more of an appreciation of what the Patricks accomplished. Not only did they fully execute a temple in “ruins” with their signature imagery, the Brooklyn duo were able to create something that fit in perfectly […]
For those of you who have been following out coverage of the Viva La Revolucion exhibition, we have for you a final roundup of the work put up around San Diego by the participating artists. We start you off with completed pics of Shepard Fairey’s (featured) Burmese Monk mural in South Park. The large mural was even more impressive when you consider that it was all painted/stenciled as opposed to the usual wheatpaste. More images of this piece and others after the jump as well […]
Looks like Complex Magazine has got a nice little formula built up using great art and music again mashing up nice artistic combos of Jose Parla x T.I. (above) and REAS (Todd James) x B.o.B. (seen after the jump) for the cover of the coming August/September issue of the magazine (your choice). Complex of course aims to give you twice your bang for the buck as one can reverse the “maggie” to find another cover of Lindsay Lohan x KAWS on the flip-side. The issue will be […]
Yoskay Yamamoto (interviewed) has almost completed his latest vinyl project with Munky King. The incredible six-inch figure is based on his painting “Screaming for the Sunrise” from his “Hello & Goodbye” solo at LeBasse Projects last year. From what Yoskay told us, the reason it took over a year to design this figure is due to the intricate detailing that was demanded of the figure (i.e. the flames & snout). Numerous prototypes were created and the final product looks like it is worthy of being […]
When AM visited David Choe’s (featured) secret lair several months ago, we not only got an advance peek at his recently released monograph, but we also got a first look at his Whale “Munko”. Check out our close-ups of the prototype. The toy being produced by Good Smile Company is set to be released this week at the San Diego Comicon (SDCC) through our friends at Giant Robot. The figure comes in 11 colorways in 3 unique sculpted bodies (+1 chase colorway). Even better news […]
