Armory Week is just around the corner and we have a little peek of what’s coming for the Scope Art Fair in NYC. Hush (interviewed) will be premiering a new Geisha painting with Opus Art and it looks rad. Usually we see him utilizing a manga-esque girl, but this time Hush switches it up with a more realistic approach to his signature style. More after the jump.
It is no secret that we at AM are big fans of the general program that the Joshua Liner Gallery has put together for 2010. Even so, the two exhibitions that the gallery opened last Friday – “From Kojiki to Modern Heroism,” the two-person show featuring Tat Ito and Hiro Kurata, and “Refuge,” Tristram Lansdowne’s (interviewed) solo show – have been particular highlights we have been eagerly awaiting. And rightly so, as all three young artists brought strong collections of new works, impressing everyone in […]

This is an important show for von Chrzanowski (better known as case when painting with Ma’Claim), as it is his debut UK solo and will […]

Another show card after the […]
