Openings: “Get Rich Quick!” Group Exhibition @ Carmichael Gallery

Last night, the Carmichael Gallery in Hollywood pulled no punches with their all-star show, “Get Rich Quick!,” showcasing the strongest talents in the street and urban art genre. Some scorching hot pieces lined the gallery’s walls for the exhibition, including: a rare Banksy canvas, a KAWS ad disruption, boxes and screen-printed collages from Faile, to originals by Barry McGee and Micallef and much more. Visiting the gallery was like seeing a modern day museum retrospective of the last five years in urban art. Truly amazing. AM has all the […]

Openings: Banksy @ Andipa Gallery

Stop and get it fresh – Banksy at Andipa Gallery! This past weekend, Andipa held an exhibition of some elite secondary market canvases by the Bristol Bomber. From what we see, the show was filled with not only grade A images, but they were also in great shape/condition, which is uncommon considering many of his pieces were stenciled on “urban” materials. This is a rare chance for you to see such a diverse collection of Banksy’s work in one place.  So, if you’re in London, you should definitely make it a […]

Preview: Banksy @ Andipa Gallery

Old school London mainstay Andipa Gallery is going to the streets and holding an exhibition of Banksy’s rare works on canvas. Guess it’s time the old money flexed it’s muscles and showcased some choice secondary market pieces from one of United Kingdom’s finest. A veritable gem amongst gems is the ginormous “Are You Using That Chair?” measuring over 7 x 14′. This is by far the largest canvas that we’ve seen from Banksy. This remix of Edward Hopper’s 1942 masterpiece “Nighthawks” is an iconic example […]

New Banksy @ NNLS Charity Auction

Banksy is at it again. This time, he’s created a new piece to be auctioned off for another charity event. The NNLS auction is actually an “undies” auction where celebrities literally donate their “bottoms” to raise money for the charity at hand. Sir Banksy managed to find another creative way to donate undies to the cause without revealing his waist size by remixing his “Very Little Helps” image that he revealed last year at POW’s Open Day (covered).  He used a stencil of “Union Jack” […]

Google Maps United Kingdom “Street Art” View

One of the most important elements of a strong street art piece is proper placement, which dictates how the work engages viewers through its interaction with the space it inhabits. This context is usually lost when viewing street art online as most photographers are more focused on filling the frame with the work itself. Google Maps changes this, having just added street view imagery throughout the United Kingdom. Street art fans have already been scouring the city, identifying the locations of pieces from Banksy, Blu, […]

On the streets: New Banksy

A crispy new Banksy just popped up in Gillett Square (Hackney, UK). It seems that the recent “hammering” which the urban art market took in this week’s auctions (covered) have clearly not affected Banksy’s approach at all. It goes to show that his meteoric rise in popularity the past few years have not gotten to his head. His unique perspective on our world today are not driven by speculators or gallerists. Whether the art market is up or down, Sir Banksy reminds us that why his works belongs on the streets and not […]
