One thing that’s constant in life is that most things are not constant. That’s what Philip Lumbang justÂ shared with us.Â Just after weÂ previewed Phil’s upcoming pop-up show last week, the Los Angeles Fire Marshall made a pop-up visit of his own to the remote warehouse location of the “would-be” show and decided to revoke the permits necessary for the event to occur. No worries, the show is definitely still happening on Saturday, September 12thÂ as Phil pulled his back-up card and relocated to an even snazzier location.Â The […]
New Yorkers are in for a treat as the godfather of the Low Brow Movement, Robert Williams, is resurfacing for a rare solo show at the prestigious Tony Shafrazi Gallery at the end of October. It sounds like there will be 25 new paintings as well as a catalog accompanying the exhibition which will continue on in 2010 to other galleries throughout the country (Cal State Northridge confirmed for Feb-April). More info to follow later, but for now, check out the artist statement after the […]
AM stopped by Carmichael Gallery on Friday to check in on Chaz and Bob (The London Police) and their newest show “Brothers in Arms” (teased). We were surprise to see them handcuffed together as they went about finishing up their paintings and setting up their show (some of their best work to date by the way).Â Suffice it to say that it will make it interesting in the days leading up to the opening next Thursday night.Â We’ll have more on our little visit later […]
Edwin Ushiro is making his bid for collectors to take notice on a jam-packed week of art coming up. With big shows almost everyday starting on Wednesday, an artist really has to bring his “A game” to get some love this week. Luckily, judging from what we have seen and by the trailer video by Modus Films for “Softly Encompassing the Womb,” Ushiro has done just that. With his unique blend of Hawaiian and Japanese aesthetics, his vibrant paintings are a breath of fresh air […]
Things have been busy over at FAME Festival since we last gave a report (see our coverageÂ here). Ericailcane has finished up a new mural, Judith Supine has put up his first piece, and JR and Sam3 have created some fantastic new prints (see JR’s above). Fans of the French artist may recall the original piece from the “Self Portraits” show at Circle Culture (previewed and covered). Take a look at the new work fromÂ Judith, Ericailcane andÂ Sam3 after the jump.
Looks like Italian street artist Blu has struck again, this time in Milan. It was only just recently that we saw him working in Grottaglie (here, here, and here) on his part for the FAME Festival this year. He apparently also had time to get this huge mural up giving bicylists a little chance for payback as you see them crush cars in their path. More images after the jump.
We know that a lot of folks are itching to see what the UK artist D*Face is going to serve up for his U.S. solo show, “Ludovico Aversion Therapy / All Your Dreams Belong To Us” at Jonathan Levine Gallery in NYC, and weâ€™ve been just as eager to see the new work as anyone else. We stopped by Dâ€™s studio recently, and saw some of his preparations for the show. Read on for more details and pictures after the jumpâ€¦
London got a treat last night in the form of Los Angeles based artist Sylvia Ji’s (interviewed) debut UK solo show entitled “Nectar” at StolenSpace gallery (previewed). AM UK has been a long time fan of Sylviaâ€™s work and were delighted to finally get to see it in person after years of admiring jpegs of her beautiful Catrinas. Sylvia was in town to celebrate the opening along with the StolenSpace crew and Corey Helford Gallery’s UK transplant Richard Scarry. See all of the opening pictures […]
After a successful showing at Joshua Liner Gallery (covered), Yumiko Kayukawa hops over to the west coast to hit up Shooting Gallery for her next conquest – “Wild Wild East.” The November 14th show is a whiles away, but we thought you’d drool over this bad-ass little teaser. Discuss Yumiko Kayukawa here.
