Streets: Eine in SF (Part II)

Who rocks the hardest? Apparently, Ben Eine does, among other things as he’s painting up San Fran in conjunction with his show that opened last weekend (covered). Not only was he working on his signature shutter typography all around town, he’s also was getting up select phrases.  Take a look at the video and more pics from Skate Legs Magazine after the jump…

Update: Chloe Early

It’s been about half a year since we last caught up with Chloe Early (interviewed) at her show in Los Angeles (covered), but it looks like she’s continuing to go big judging from these paintings she is working on. Moving into Conor Harrington’s more spacious old studio certainly has it’s advantages. You’ll probably be seeing some of these pieces at her upcoming solo exhibition in New York in October with Joshua Liner as well as something for the Stolen Space summer show. More photos after […]

The West Kowloon Cultural District, which we first told you about in 2009, has finally chosen a design for the planned $2.8 billion 50 hectare arts hub. The firm to win out were the favorites, Foster + Partners, the architects who were also responsible for the breathtaking Chep Lap Kok Airport, the Hong Kong and Shanghai Bank, and the Bilbao Metro, although the original canopy design has been scrapped. More conceptual images after the jump…

Interview / Preview: Adam Wallacavage – “Dreamhome Heartaches” @ Corey Helford Gallery

This Saturday night, March 19th, Adam Wallacavage returns from his recent trip to and show in Brazil to stage his first solo exhibition in Los Angeles. Entitled “Dreamhome Heartaches”, the new body of work for Corey Helford Gallery is inspired by the decorative interiors of his home in Philadelphia which is filled by much of his own sculptural pieces as well as eclectic items collected from his travels. We put some questions to the “self-taught militant ornamentalist” recently about this new show among other things […]

Openings: ‘Good Folks’ @ Show & Tell Gallery

Show & Tell Gallery in Toronto continue to impress us with a superb roster of artists. Their latest, Good Folks, opened last week and featured Swoon (interviewed), Monica Canilao, Jeremiah Maddock, Derek Mehaffey (aka Other), Labrona and Troy Dugas. Good Folks looks another well curated show, and brings together a distinguished balance of artists from the fringes of the folk art, street art and protest art movements.

Openings: Vhils – “Detritus” @ Galerie Presenca

Vhils, whose explosive new video we recently featured, recently opened up a show entitled Detritus at Gallery Presenca in Portugal. The body of work featured two types of art-making that we have come to expect from the Lisbon-based artist – images made from chiseled concrete and layers of paint & torn paper. Take a look at more shots from the show from Stick2Target after the jump…

Openings: Eine – “GREATEST” @ White Walls

Street typographical poet Ben Eine opened his show at White Walls on Saturday in SF.  AM stopped by to check out the work of the busy artist, as he has also been on the streets painting his signature letters throughout the city. We think the title of the show “GREATEST” was very appropriate after seeing most of the words and phrases chosen by the UK-based artist for this body of work. More opening photos after the jump…

Openings: Shepard Fairey – “Revolutions” @ Robert Berman Gallery

On Saturday night, Shepard Fairey (featured) opened his latest exhibition Revolutions at Los Angeles’ Robert Berman Gallery.

On display were many of Shep’s iconic HPM album covers for fans to enjoy along with a debut of a larger sized series of covers (mixed media collaged 41.5″ x 41.5″). As you saw in our recent studio visit with Shepard, a […]

Openings: Sas & Colin Christian – “Sas + Colin” @ Opera Gallery (NY)

AM attended the private opening for Colin and Sas Christian’s (interviewed) latest show Sas + Colin at New York’s Opera Gallery. As the title states, the main focus was the wife and husband collaborations which brought their unique talents together for a visually stunning exhibition. Sas utilized her hyper realistic painting styles to bring the futuristic subjects to life, while Colin brought the physical presence with his beautifully detailed fiberglass sculptures. Together in one setting, it was impressive to see the artistic talents which can only be […]
