Our latest interview is with artist Adam Feibelman (aka Adam 5100), who hails from New Mexico & has been working in San Francisco for the past sixteen years. His most common medium and technique involves enamel paintings utilizing stencils & stitched paper stencil collages.

Take a look at […]

Upcoming / Streets: Nychos – “Silly Slicesophy” @ Mighty Tanaka (New York)

After recently gifting San Francisco with a new mural, Nychos has headed to the other coast for a showing in New York. Silly Slicesophy will open Friday night (August 9th) in Brooklyn at the Mighty Tanaka. As referred to in the title, the Austrian artist will be taking his knife to classic Disney characters (like Mickey above), and dissecting them in a style he often uses on the streets. Speaking of which, he just painted a new killer whale piece for his fans in NY (seen below). Photo […]

Streets: Liqen (Vodnjan, Croatia)

Spanish artist Liqen was recently in Vodnjan, Croatia where he painted a new colorful surreal mural for Boombarstick Festival. Even though he had some difficulties with the wall he was assigned, and later with his back pain, he managed to finish another rich and beautiful image on the main street of this cute small town. Made entirely with a brush and acrylic paint, this large scale street painting shows a psychedelic image, which is a part of a dream he actually had on his 1st night in Croatia. […]

Another week, another Rewind feature here on AM.

The long session lasted six hours where the rapper showed his appreciation for art through his lyrics, name dropping left and right. You decide whether it was a “performance art film” as it was billed, but also check out all the artists that […]

Streets: Phlegm (Poland)

British muralist and illustrator, Phlegm, recently spent a couple days in the Polish capital, Warsaw, working on a new mural for the Street Art Doping festival. Once again, he got assigned an interesting wall by the organizers, with several different sized windows and parts of the plaster missing. Instead of covering these up, the Sheffield-based artist fully used the surface with all its given elements and created this mural based on the map of the world. Painting in close to 40 °C heat, Phlegm created an […]

Art Focus: Mitch Griffiths

In this newest installment of our Art Focus, we introduce the work of British artist Mitch Griffiths. His style is inspired by Old Master paintings, but he cleverly subverts what he has learned to depict issues that affect modern society. The composition, light, and poses that draw their influence from his studies have now been intermingled with powerful imagery that relates to concerns of the 21st century. For those interested in seeing his work in person, he is represented by the Halcyon Gallery in London where […]

Streets: DALeast (Rochester, NY)

Chinese artist DALeast (interviewed), was back in Rochester, NY, last week. Almost exactly one year since last time he visited the city (covered), he once again left a recognizable mural for the Wall Therapy festival. This time, he worked on a big 6 meters high wall by 30 meters long approximately, and created an image that fits beautifully with his dynamic 3D style. This image of an eagle taking off and picking up the wave, while the boat that is almost capsized by it looks like it’s […]
