The Art of Banksy includes over 85 pieces selected by the elusive artist’s former agent, Steve Lazarides, making it the biggest show of Banksy work ever put together. Along with some previously unexhibited originals, including crude oils, works on paper, wood, canvas as well as rare sculptural works, the exhibition also includes previously unseen behind the scenes as well as work in progress images from curator’s personal archives.

Previews: Jaime Molina & Adrian Landon Brooks @ Andenken gallery

Amsterdam’s Andenken Gallery is making final preparations for TWO solo shows opening on June 11th – Jaime Molina will be presenting a new body of work titled Desolation Slang, and Adrian Landon Brooks will introduce Miracle Worker. These will be Dutch debut solos for two American artists. Though working in different mediums and creating different forms of art, both artists use found materials and a neofolk aesthetic in their gallery and illustrative work. The Colorado-based Molina is known for his sculptures made from reclaimed wood and salvaged nails which he often uses as […]

Showing: Okuda – “AsiAfricalism” @ Kallenbach gallery

From the 1st of April through the 1st of May, Okuda San Miguel will be showing his AsiAfricalism solo show at Kallenbach gallery in Amsterdam. Inspired by the exoticism of individuals that the Spanish artist has met during his journeys, unusual portraits mixed with his recognizable vibrant visual language dominate the showcase. AsiAfricalism includes one sculptural piece, series of four abstract works and five portraits packed with the patterns, bright colors and sharp shapes Okuda has been known for. By using geometry and playing with formats, the street artist creates surrealist imagery that […]

Previews: Evan Hecox – “Terrain” @ Andenken Gallery

On October 2nd, Andenken Gallery in Amsterdam will be showing Terrain, a solo show by Evan Hecox. With this new body of work, the Denver-based artist is experimenting with more abstract forms and imagery as well as different mediums including acrylic paint, ink, gouache, collage to watercolor or colored pencil. The pieces are loosely based on the flags, so the artist is referring to them as such with titles like Community Flag or Desert Flag. By reusing the same geometric elements in multiple works, he is playing with the relationship […]

Interviews / Setup: Jim Houser – “HUSH” @ Andenken / Battalion Gallery

Jim Houser is currently setting up his upcoming show (previewed) entitled HUSH with Andenken / Battalion Gallery, the American artist’s first solo in Amsterdam. The gallery owner, artist and friend of AM, Hyland Mather aka X-O, used this opportunity to do a little Q&A session with Houser on our behalf. What was planned as an interview, turned into a deep and informative conversation between the two creatives, covering all kinds of subjects from skateboarding, music, traveling, family, rising kids, and last but not least, art. Hyland Mather (HM): Hey Jim, […]

Previews: Jim Houser – “Hush” @ Andenken / Battalion

Andenken / Battalion Gallery in Amsterdam will be opening a solo show by Jim Houser on Friday, June 5th. Hush will feature some new works that the American artist has been making in his recognizable style. From the preview images we received from the gallery, the new pieces seen continue the style of works Houser has always been known for. Mixing a flat, naive painting style, with collage and written words, his emotive pieces usually hide more than one message or story in them. Experimenting with more […]

Showing: KAWS @ ArtZuid 2015

As we previously shared with you, KAWS currently has three sculptures set up in a public space around south Amsterdam. As a part of this year’s ArtZuid 2015 project, the NY-based artist was given one of the most prestigious locations for an iteration of his Along The Way sculptures, previously seen at his show with Mary Boone Gallery (covered). Exhibiting in a different colorway than the one shown in NYC, these two wooden companions measuring an impressive 216 x 176 x 120 inches are located in the middle of Museum Square, […]

Previews: Clemens Behr – ‘Small Works’ @ Mini Galerie

Berlin-based Clemens Behr opens a solo exhibition this week at Amsterdam’s Mini Galerie entitled Small Works. True to the name of the show, this is a rare chance to get up close and personal to Behr’s typically installation-heavy, and much larger scale works. Working mainly with industrial and salvaged architectural materials, Behr applies an abstract language to his sculptural works, placing otherwise familiar materials out of context and imposing a defiance to logic, gravity and form. His Small Works within this exhibition retain all the (un)familiar […]
