Renowned sculptor Anish Kapoor is currently showing at the Guggenheim in Bilbao, the first large-scale survey of the artist’s work to be seen in Spain. In a fascinating series of videos, Kapoor gives a tour of each of the major pieces in the exhibition. Not only do we get to see some nice footage of the show, we also get an explanation of each artwork from Kapoor himself. See videos part 2 – part 7 after the jump…
Is that Ron English’s Ronald McDonald and camouflaged deer peeking out at us? It’s just some of the sights seen at this year’s “Electric Windows”, an annual art and music festival that has already going on three years. This year’s rendition officially opened last weekend in Beacon, New York with about 30 artists travelling to the small town about an hour north of New York City to do some live painting as well as hopefully bring some life and a fresh look some targeted buildings […]
Daniel Danger (interviewed), who we saw last show at the SF location of Gallery 1988 in April of last year, returns this week to the original Los Angeles location for his new exhibition – “they will take it back”. The New England artist best known for his prints, which sell out almost instantaneously on release, will be putting together a body of work including originals, limited editions, and his first full-scale art toy. The show opens August 5th (5-8 pm). More preview images after the […]
A pretty interesting event is taking place this Wednesday night at the Hurley Space (7-10pm at 1945 Placentia Ave., Costa Mesa, CA) down in Orange County. James Marshall (Dalek) (interviewed) will be exhibiting his 37-foot continuous wall mural, “Chaos on the Edge of Reason”, with the kicker being that pieces of the painting will be cut out and framed on demand for attendees to take home at $200 per square feet (2×2, 3×3 and 4×4 feet). A smaller companion painting and four limited-edition 36-by-48 works […]
One of our astute readers in Copenhagen, Henrik Haven, recently took some pictures for us of the “Relationships” group show currently showing at Gallery Christoffer Egelund. The exhibition features three artists that we like – Tim Biskup, Miss Van, and Victor Castillo – as well as a fourth artists we weren’t familiar with – Michael Swaney. The exhibition nicely hung against the clean backdrop and spacious venue looking like something that should not be missed if you are in the area. More pics after the […]
We’re partial to a bit of D*Face (interviewed) in our lives here at AM, so when we heard that he was traveling to South America to get down to some good old fashioned street art as part of Dinamo’s internationally vibed ‘9no Festival de Arte en la Calle’, held in the capital of Ecuador – Quito, we were naturally curious about what laid in store. Details seemed sketchy at best, and we wondered what may come of this trek halfway around the world. We wished him […]
Last night, AM attended the crowded opening of the Sea No Evil art show and charity auction. The group show hosted great works from many notables such as Shepard Fairey, Clayton Brothers, Dave Kinsey, Gary Baseman, Mark Dean Veca, Audrey Kawasaki, Amy Sol, Joe Ledbetter, Lola, Travis Louie and Kozyndan. As expected, the event was packed with fans of both the art and the ocean. Throughout the night, DJ Diabetic and Crystal Method pumped great music to keep the crowd jumping. Eager patrons hovered over […]

German/Sierra Leonean reggae singer Patrice recently released a music video featuring an iconic speaker sculpture by JR (examples here and here). Utilzing some stop motion animation, “Ain’t Got No (I Got Life)”, a cover of a song by Nina Simone, features the wheatpasted set of speakers in different configurations throughout the video. Look for more from the French street photographer later this year in London, Shanghai, and Miami but for now, enjoy this video. Discuss JR here.
Do you believe in global warming? If you remember, Banksy does, despite his tongue-in-cheek statement to the contrary. Now, we know Blu does too after this clever new piece in Berlin (another Berlin piece here) that shows that it’s only a matter of time before our cities are submerged. Another look after the jump….
