Releases / Giveaway: Brandi Milne – “The Making” Print

Our friends at Virtu Art Gallery just released this stunning limited edition from Los Angeles based artist Brandi Milne entitled “The Making.” The edition is a 20 x 20 inch archival giclée canvas in an edition of 40 copies. Each one has been hand embellished by the artist, so no two are alike. The edition is available now on Virtu’s website, and AM has one of these beautiful prints to give away. Read on for some pictures of Brandi applying the finishing to the prints as […]

Teaser: The Faile Bast Deluxx Fluxx Arcade @ Lazarides (Greek Street)

Probably the show that AM is looking forward to most next month would be the Faile and Bast UK show at Lazarides opening February 12th. Both floors of the Greek Street location will be taken over by the Brooklyn duo and long-time collaborator Bast in what is promised to be an truly immersive installation with “80’s populist culture” as the stated source of inspiration (perhaps referenced in the title and logo for the show seen above). Also as a tease, proportedly there will be an […]

Benefit: “Auction For Haiti” @ Brooklynite Gallery

Our friends at Brooklynite Gallery are having an auction to raise money for the Haitian Orphanage – Chances For Children. They put together some nice pieces from artists such as Guy Denning, Miss Bugs, Beejoir, C215, Eelus and K-Guy. You can check out the pieces and bid here. With 100% of the proceeds going directly to the orphanage, it’s a definite win-win for all who participate in this very charitable event. More images after the jump.

Eli Broad Museum Location Search

It appears Los Angeles has now added themselves to the mix (joining Santa Monica and Beverly Hills) for possible locations of Eli Broad’s planned art museum. If you remember, one of the goals of Deitch after being named the director of MOCA was to convince Broad, one of his biggest supporters to keep his major contemporary art collection in LA. Howeever, one has to wonder why Broad, who has donated millions to LACMA and MOCA, would not just add his collection to those major institutions […]

Benefit / Releases: David Choe – “Haitian Girl” Print for Yéle Haiti

It’s great to see more support from artists in our community as they rally support for the relief efforts in Haiti. David Choe took time from his preparation for his SF show to work with Hemway Industries on a benefit print to raise money for Yéle Haiti, a foundation founded by Wyclef Jean. The giclée print “Haitian Girl” measures 18″ x 24″ and is limited to an edition size of 50. All proceeds are being donated to Yéle Haiti. It is available immediately here, so go donate […]

Releases: Kent Rogowski – “Valentine’s Bears” @ 20×200

Today at 2:00pm Eastern, affordable art-edition purveyor 20×200 will be releasing a set of Valentine’s Day inspired prints by one of our favorite photographer/artists, Kent Rogowski. The images – created exclusively for this release – are the latest from Rogowski’s Bears series, in which he turns stuffed animals inside out, transforming the commonplace children’s toys into something bizarrely cute and lovably grotesque. As per usual, 20×200 will have various sizes available to suit almost any budget, so if you are looking for that unique Valentine’s […]

Bumblebee Installation @ Thinkspace

If you remember, AM last hung out with Bumblebee last year, as he placed one of his signature phonebooth installations on the streets of LA. Well, he’s taken it a step further with this pretty cool installation in the front alcove of Thinkspace for the “A Cry For Help” show (covered). Take a look at some more additional photos after the jump…

Banksy Roundup

We’ve put together a little roundup of recent Banksy news that will hopefully tie up some loose ends.  In the video above, you will see a message from Mr. B – read to the audience before the screening of his documentary “Exit Through the Gift Shop” at the Sundance Film Festival. We wish we could have been there, but there are a couple reviews out so far (here & here).  Also, for lucky fans in the UK, it looks like there are already some tickets […]

Releases: Joe Sorren – “The Overture” Print

Joe Sorren just announced a new print, “The Overture”, a giclee with an edition size of 95 that he has made available on his webstore. You may remember that this painting was for the BLAB! show last year. He did some pretty interesting documentation of the creative process for this piece previously which you can see here. Also, fans of his work are sure to be overjoyed to hear that he is working on his first museum retrospective set for the end of the this […]
