On Saturday night, Deitch Projects hosted the opening for the ever talented contemporary artist: Rosson Crow. Her latest show “Bowery Boys” featured her talented nostalgic snapshots of the streets of lower Manhattan. The beautifully rendered works featured periods from the 1800′s to the current landscape depicting the gritty urban facades of the “Big Apple”. As AM previewed last week through a detailed studio visit, her bigger-than-life style had us excited to see the rest of the show. Fully utilizing the grand space that Deitch Projects is renowned [...]

AM was recently able to bring you a little insight from Kevin Cyr via our studio visit as he prepared for his latest show, “Temporal Surfaces” alongside Jessica Hess at San Francisco’s White Walls Gallery. We followed up our glimpse into Kevin’s work with an interview and some preview images from the show, which opens this weekend. Read on for our interview and more images after the jump.
Inspired by Matt O’Brien’s book “Beneath the Neon – Life and Death in the Las Vegas Tunnels”, Logan Hicks (interviewed) recently took an interesting look at the massive system of drainage tunnels underneath the city of sin. Portions of the more than 300 miles of subterranean passageways are covered in graffiti and the feel of the place kind of reminds us of the underground work of Brazilian street artist Zezao. More pics after the jump.
Aaron Nagel opens his debut solo show in SF at The Shooting Gallery this Saturday, March 6th. The exhibition is entitled “Marks”, as in a target, a sign or indication of a quality or feeling, or a small area on a surface having a different color from its surroundings, typically one caused by accident or damage. According to the press release, the show is comprised of “11 new large-scale oil paintings, this series uses imagery of youthful women in the nude, often impaled by archery [...]
This past weekend AM had a chance to stop by Rosson Crow’s Brooklyn studio where she graciously gave us a sneak preview of her upcoming Deitch Projects show “Bowery Boys” opening on March 4th. As the name implies, Rosson uses her loose and dreamy abstract style to reinterpret the landscape & culture of downtown Manhattan. Working within the storied hall/traditions of Deitch Projects, Rosson dares to nostalgically re-imagine the “bad boy” underground streets artists of yesteryear and their impact on the urban culture of NYC. Some of [...]

Lazarides recently released some images of a piece that Vhils put up in Moscow, perhaps at the same time this piece was created. For more background info on how the Portugal-based street artist produces his “unbufferable” works of art with hammer and chisel, check out a video here. Also, more images of this piece after the jump…
February rolls to a stop this weekend before the big NYC art machine cranks into high gear next week for the big Armory show and the surrounding satellite fairs. Look for a ton of on-the-scene coverage to come from Armory and all the surrounding fairs in the week ahead. Without doubt, the most anticipated show going off this weekend is the 5th Anniversary group show going down in NYC at Jonathan LeVine’s Chelsea digs. A who’s who of those that have passed through his gallery [...]
When we were in Philly to check out Steve “ESPO ICY” Powers’ amazing “Love Letter” mural project (covered), we stopped by his center city headquarters to chat with the man himself and get a behind-the-scenes look at his work and creative process. Similar to Powers’ previous Coney Island studio opened in conjunction with Creative Time’s Dreamland Artists Club, his Philadelphia space is part studio, part working sign shop and part neighborhood hangout. With every wall covered with ephemera, art, jokes and junk, it’s clear that [...]
