See you at the opening!

Studio Visits / Preview: Dave Kinsey – “New Works” @ Joshua Liner Gallery

Sometimes, you just need to get away from it all. That’s exactly what Dave Kinsey did for his upcoming show at New York’s Joshua Liner Gallery by moving up to Central California’s Three Rivers and focusing his energy into this fresh body of work. The head of Blk/Mrkt took his game to nature’s back yard, retreating from his urban studio in Los Angeles and from what we see, it’s given this new collection of paintings a whole new dimension. AM brings you an inside look into Mr. Kinsey’s […]

Takashi Murakami to create Macy’s Thanksgiving Parade Float

Takashi Murakami is coming back to show in New York City, but this time, he’s in this year’s Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. His contributions will be two specially designed floats of his studio mascots “Kaikai” and “Kiki”. With massive heads measuring 16 feet wide, it’ll be a pretty unforgettable impression these two Superflat characters will make when their larger than life helium filled bodies float down the streets of the Big Apple. We even dug up an old animation of Kaikai & Kiki in action […]

Setup: Eelus & C215 – “Paradise Lost” @ Brooklynite Gallery

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.

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 […]
