Ian Strange (Kid Zoom) – “Suburban” @ National Gallery of Victoria

In those two years, he traveled through the American suburbs documenting his entire journey through film and photography in what seems to be the natural progression of his prior show HOME, a personal look into his own suburban […]

Previews: Cyclops – ‘The Way of All Flesh’ @ Outsiders (London)

For us here at AM, Cyclops has been one of the most interesting, and certainly most talented gallery artists to come from the contemporary graffiti world in the UK. His work has seen him revolve back and forth from using his real name to the moniker he was given whilst painting with the much lauded and sadly missed Burning Candy crew. The Way of All Flesh is very much a Cyclops show though – and what a show it appears to be. The exhibition features a series […]
