Photographer Ryan McGinley, whose video Varuo will make it into NYC taxis starting this week, continues to be linked with fashion shoots featuring supermodels – this time with Daria Werbowy.

Takashi Murakami Studio Look

With his recent entry into the Instagram world (@takashipom), Takashi Murakami has offered a rare look into his life for fans of his work. Of particular interest for us has been a glimpse into his huge studio space and his artistic process where the Japanese artist has been hard at work on a series of new paintings. For what show it’s hard to tell, but perhaps some will be headed to Galerie Perrotin for his solo opening in May, timed slightly after the release of […]

Upcoming: Faile – “Les BALLETS de FAILE” @ Lincoln Center

It’s a brand new year and the Patrick’s (aka FAILE) are leading things off with a special project that’s been under wraps for quite a while. Earlier in the year when we visited Faile’s studio while they were working on their trip to Mongolia, we were excited to learn about an upcoming collaborative endeavor with the New York City Ballet, but we were asked to keep this project air tight. The time has come now to share with you information about the large-scale exhibition at the Lincoln Center that will feature the many […]

Showing: Daniel Arsham – “Reach Ruin” @ Fabric Workshop and Museum

Daniel Arsham’s exhibition, Reach Ruin, recently opened at the Fabric Workshop and Museum in Philadelphia where he was the artist-in-residence. Arsham, who is also one-half of design studio Snarkitecture (a partnership with Alex Mustonen) was inspired by his experiences with Hurricane Andrew as a youngster (the show’s title is an anagram for the word hurricane) to create a series of works that speak to the fragility of architecture in the face of the destructive power of nature. In addition to the sculptures, a performance entitled Study for Occupant will be seen […]

Openings: Chaz Bojorquez – “End of the World” @ Plaza De La Raza / Boathouse Gallery

Last week, the architect of LA “cholo” style graffiti and Art In The Streets alum, Chaz Bojorquez, opened up a show at the Plaza De La Raza / Boathouse Gallery. Entitled appropriately although now with hindsight misnamed End of the World, the exhibition which opened on December 21st featured Chicano artist’s signature script glorifying the strength and beauty of the East Los Angeles graffiti lettering styles. Along with paintings, the body of work on display also included hand painted skate boards and the night also saw […]

Showing: Tom Sachs – “Nautical challenge and other voodoo” @ Baldwin Gallery

For those currently in Aspen, Colorado – perhaps on a winter vacation – you may want to add a visit to the Baldwin Gallery to your itinerary. Tom Sachs recently opened a show entitled Nautical challenge and other voodoo at the showspace located in the historic Brand Building in downtown, which should be familiar to the NY-based sculptor as he’s had multiple successful exhibitions there in the past. On display will be many intriguing items and installations created through his bricolage technique of creating unique […]

Streets: Aakash Nihalani – “Sum Times” Series

After sharing with you something we quite liked from Aakash Nihalani that he did for the Nuart Festival earlier this year, we were pleased to see that he has expanded on that piece in a series of works. Entitled Sum Times, the carefully executed pieces take advantage of existing urban elements and creatively applies the concepts of mathematics to them. Continuing to push the limits of the geometric forms that grew from the street placement of his original medium of choice – tape – Nihalani has introduced a new exciting facet in […]

Streets: Metlac Bridge Graffiti (Mexico)

Taking risks is certainly part of every graffiti artist’s job description, but here is an example that even some seasoned writers may have a problem with – especially if they have a fear of heights. Braving a narrow ledge on the side of highest railroad bridge in North America (430 feet high), some young guns have recently tagged the Metlac Bridge in Veracruz, Mexico to make their names known. If these photos are enough or if you have questions about their authenticity, head over here to […]

Basel Week Miami ’12: Holton Rower Performance @ Fresh Basel

While bringing you a look at the Fresh Basel exhibition (curated by The Hole / Kathy Grayson) held at the the historic 1920’s waterfront Villa Vecchia estate during Basel Week Miami, we mentioned that there would be special live performances held throughout the showing. One of artists included was Holton Rower, known for his pour paintings, which he ably demonstrated with a session that included a model as his canvas (sponsored by Playboy which totally makes sense). Take a look at the rest of the photos below… […]
