Currently showing at the Stranger Factory in Albuquerque is a dual exhibition from Chet Zar (interviewed) and Doktor A entitled Oddfellows. Aptly named for the strange artistic vision, the joint show from the two features Zar’s grotesque and monstrous portraits painted in a nightmarish fashion that only he can do as well as the Dok’s steampunk mechanical creations put together by his deft hand. The two even found time to collaborate on a sculptural piece together. Check out the rest of the show here. Photo […]

Next Saturday night (January 19th), the third and final chapter of the Conjoined series of group exhibitions (see 2011 & 2012) will open its doors at the Copro Gallery in Santa Monica. Curated by Chet Zar, the show features three-dimensional creations from some of the most imaginative artists out there like Colin Christian, Dave Pressler, Doktor A (above), Travis Louie, and Kevin Kirkpatrick, who crafted last year’s showstoppers – the Beavis and Butt-Head sculptures. The night will also see a mini-exhibition and book release from […]
From his beginnings as one of the most highly sought after art toy customizers out there, the UK-based Doktor A has progressed to producing his own sculptural creations, which was only natural if anyone has ever seen his work. For his recent showing in New York at My Plastic Heart, entitled Postcard from New Yorkshire, his full talents were on display with figures created in his robotic steampunk aesthetic with a fine attention to detail. More photos below… Discuss Doktor A here.
Fans of sculptural work, be sure to show up tomorrow night at the Copro Gallery for the Conjoined II exhibition, a sequel to last year’s showing. Not only will Chet Zar’s (interviewed) fantastic new bronze, The Dead Pope, be on display, a diverse roster of artists will be presenting their three-dimensional creations as well. AM regulars like Colin Christian, Scott Musgrove, Doktor A, and Ron English have been invited to the party as well as newer names like Francesco De Molfetta, David Grasso, Shiflett Brothers, Jason […]
The “WE HEART WOOD” customs show opens tonight, April 8th, at Munky King in Melrose with dynamic duo Noferin inviting 30 of their artists friends to customize their latest blind box mini wood toys – Jibibuts. Not all artists have what it takes to paint on 3D surfaces, but masters of the art like Jeremiah Ketner, Doktor A, Dan May, Yoskay Yamamoto, and Stella Im Hultberg make it look easy with an awesome collection little works of art. More preview images after the jump.
Doktor A, who is considered by many to be one of the pre-eminent “customizers” out there, is opening his show “Freak Machanique” tonight in Detroit. He has long since shown he that he has many other talents including painting and sculpting. For this exhibition, he is bringing a new body of his signature steam-punk inspired work (paintings, drawings and three-dimensional pieces) to Lift Gallery including this hand painted and remixed Koibito figure from Yoskay Yamamoto (featured) which he renamed “The Odorous Fish Man.” More preview images he sent us […]

All of these artists are from out of town, but luckily, AM was able to meet up with Jason D’Aquino, Michael Page, and Jason Limon at last night’s opening. The growth in their work was a common theme that was brought up and we will let you see for yourselves just how much their work has changed within […]
