Openings: Christiaan Nagel @ Rich Mix

Last week, Londoners discovered an infestation of mushrooms at the Rich Mix showspace with the culprit being artist Christiaan Nagel. If you remember, we first introduced you to his street fungi back in January – colorful constructs of polyurethane, fiber glass, and stainless steel which he installed strategically on top of buildings and roofs mostly in the East End. Presented by Street Art London, the show which brought some of Nagel’s signature creations indoors was certainly well received by the packed crowd. More opening pics after […]

Streets: Invader (São Paulo)

After celebrating his 1000th piece placed in the streets with a huge show in Paris, it looks like Invader is continuing onward towards 2000.  Take a look at these new pieces in the Brazilian street art mecca of São Paulo. Of interest are the daring placements, the use of tiles with local flavor, locations next to local talent, and even a rare throw-up from the French street tile master. Perhaps he is in town for a group show opening this weekend at São Paulo Museum […]

Openings: Rob Sato – “The Open End” @ Copro Gallery

Last weekend, the Copro Gallery unveiled new work by artist Rob Sato. Named The Open End, the exhibition showed a variety of the artist’s latest art which continues to be nothing short of impressive. Various pieces on display featured a combination of the organic and the mechanical, but without going to either side of the spectrum. As usual, his artwork features a great sense of storytelling and movement that’s not always easy to capture on a canvas or print. However, his technique and style lends […]

Streets: London Instagram Roundup

Again it’s been a busy couple of weeks for street art in London. AM was happy to catch sight of some new work by Mr Penfold, collaborating with Sweet Toof and a brilliant bandit style shutter with the prolific Malarky whose work seems to be going up everywhere. Either collaborating with Ronzo, Pop 187, Kata, Word to Mother and Vinnie Nylon, the streets seem to be taking on a bold and colourful make over with playful characters adorning the shutters and walls of Shoreditch. We also […]

Openings: Tauba Auerbach – “A Book Is Not An X” @ John McWhinnie & GHB

On Friday, Tauba Auerbach unveiled a truly unique body of work at John McWhinnie @ GHB in East Hampton, NY. The show entitled A Book Is Not An X (previewed) is a play on a statement she made last year in an Artforum review of Carsten Nicolai’s book Grid Index: “a book is an X-axis. The format is almost always linear; the content, bound in a prescribed order, marches single file.” For this exhibition Tauba created six “books” and each plays on this notion and […]

Streets: Futura (New York)

It’s nice to see street legend Futura active in New York again. The last time we saw him hit up his home city, he was creating an epic collaboration piece with Os Gemeos at a Chelsea public school (P.S. 11). This time, he’s working in his spirographic abstractions on this wall in Brooklyn adjacent to work from his friends Stash and Wane. More photos after the jump…
