In addition to the multitudes of already established and successful street artists working Primary Flight this year, AM managed to score a couple hours with the ever mysterious TrustoCorp as the enigmatic entity bolted up their trusty brand of altered and hand painted street signage. Following a successful blanketing of New York City’s financial district, TrustoCorp trucked down to Miami leaving a trail of subversive signs in their wake. From what TrustoCorp told us, expect a pretty intense nationwide campaign to come to a city […]
Situated right near the entrance of one of the sections of the SCOPE art fair, the New Image Art booth siphoned off alot of the traffic as attendees passed by. Not that they needed the prime location with the large Judith Supine installation to grab everyone’s attention. We take a closer look at said installation after the jump, as well as the additional four pieces seen above.
Amongst the many things we’ve seen over in Miami this year, perhaps the most talked about piece of work (certainly between the AM crew and our friends out here) was an previously unsold Barry McGee’s “99 bottle” installation over at Deitch Projects booth at Art Basel. Reputed to have sold for a mere 100K at this year’s fair, it would not have been hard, just among collector friends in Miami to come up with the money and then to split the bottles up. Perhaps not […]
Looks like intrepid traveler, JR, added Abu Dhabi on the list of places he has visited with his street photography. To coincide with the annual Abu Dhabi Art Fair, the french wheatpaster was asked to create a large scale installation for the increasingly art-infused capital of the arab emirate. Take a look at a couple more pics after the jump.
Recently. AM had a chance to catch Shepard Fairey and his crew hard at work in the middle of Times Square for the launch of a special collaboration with Levi’s. In usual bold Obey fashion, the boys set up shop at the heart of the city to build a mural anchored by Shepard’s classic icon with a “pocketed” Levi’s twist. Not surprisingly the mural creation process drew a big crowd of fans and tourists eager to get pictures of Shepard much like his mural creation […]
Brendan Monroe (interviewed) premiered a new body of work at Richard Heller Gallery over the weekend. In addition to some fantastic organic and biologically inspired paintings, he also delighted show attendees with several impressive installations. One of these was the constellation of hanging wood sculptures seen with Monroe above that were suspended from the high ceiling in the front room. Take a look at all the pics after the jump…
Here’s a little behind the scenes look into JR’s preparation for his latest project: “Women Are Heroes” which is already in progress as he “re-does” structures in Paris in his signature bold fashion. This new project which officially opens Oct 3rd will coincide with the art festival Nuit Blanche in Paris (“All Nighter” in French) – an annual cultural event where all the museums and art spaces are open during one night and artists redecorate the city. It’s amazing to see the scale that JR […]

Berlin-based artist, Jaybo (aka Monk), opened his show “Headscape: Tales From the Drifters” in London this weekend at the Signal Gallery (interviewed) in London. This show from the versatile artist focuses on his portrait style of painting as well as several large murals.Â The distorted and contorted faces in this body of work certainly convey a raw emotion that leaves a lasting impression in the viewer’s mind.Â Particularly striking is his use of color – brilliant reds that contrast and draw our attention to each […]
