Teaser: Ray Caesar – “A Dangerous Inclination” @ Corey Helford

On October 22nd, the Corey Helford Gallery will be presenting Ray Caesar’s first solo show that we will attend since the beginning of the year in New York. Entitled A Dangerous Inclination, the new body of work will again feature the Toronto-based artist’s unique process of setting up 3D environments with his surrealistic imagery and then producing limited editions and one-offs from selected angles. From the looks of things, his pale digital creations will be set in some stunning and lush environments. A couple more […]

Openings: Eric Haze – “New Mathematics” @ Known Gallery

Over the weekend, the Known Gallery hosted the show entitled New Mathematics. Featuring the work of New York graffiti legend Eric Haze, the exhibition centered around a collection of artwork filled with geometric lines and patterns which give way to both abstract shapes and an aura of cubism. The show featured over 35 different paintings that were carefully detailed against a variety of black, white and gray canvases. Ranging in different sizes, each piece featured interesting and unique designs which can easily engulf the viewer. […]

Streets: Invader (São Paulo) Part II

Last month we brought you coverage of Invader getting up down in São Paulo. It appears either the Parisian artist fell in love with the Brazilian street art mecca and stuck around for the past few week. Or he was so pleased with his previous invasion that he quickly returned for another attack. Whatever it may be, the master of the mosaic has bestowed another round of his 8-bit minions scattered throughout the South American country once again in some pretty impressive and brazen locations. […]

Streets: SABER – “Skytagging” (Los Angeles)

If you read AM this morning, you would have been tipped off by SABER (interviewed) to something happening in the skies around noon time today. So, if you were in downtown Los Angeles and looked up, you would have seen something interesting. Besides trying out a novel approach to tagging utilizing the technique of skywriting with shoutouts to Art Work Rebels (AWR) and Mad Society Kings (MSK) as well as some fellow crew members, the socially conscious writer also planned the event to protest the […]

Streets: Miquel Barceló – “Gran Elefandret” (NY)

If you ever wanted to see one of Miquel Barceló’s precariously perched elephant sculptures in person, here’s your chance if you are in New York. The impossibly balanced bronze sculpture entitled Gran Elefandret from the Spanish artist is now on display through May 2012 in Union Square and is 26 feet high.

Teaser: Laurie Lipton – “Carnival of Death” @ Last Rites

On October 1st, Laurie Lipton will be opening her first solo show in New York at the Last Rites Gallery. The Los Angeles-based artist’s mastery of graphite is nothing short of stunning, and she uses these skills to create intricate compositions and complex storylines so we are definitely looking forward to seeing the drawings for Carnival of Death. This newest body of work is inspired by The Day Of The Dead imagery, and runs just prior to the holiday, in a way commemorating the event. […]

Releases / Teasers: Josh Keyes – “Scorch I” @ Sink or Swim Benefit Show (San Francisco)

After almost three years of tireless wishful thinking and outspoken groveling amongst diehard Josh Keyes collectors, Scorch I will finally see a print release this coming weekend. Originally exhibited at SCOPE NY in 2009, the painting, along with another now iconic work, really turned heads at the fair and marked a fairly sizable conceptual and technical leap forward, converting casual observers into permanent admirers of Josh’s work. Adding to the lore of it all, the paintings were released on a first-come, first-serve basis by David B […]
