Streets: World Roundup (Sept 22 – Oct 12)

With this latest edition of our Streets: World Roundup article, we turn our eyes to Las Vegas for our featured mural from ROA. The Belgium-based artist withstood the desert heat for four days of hard work before completing this piece with the image of a horny toad, a local species that can squirt blood out of its eyes to deter predators. Painted for the Life Is Beautiful Festival, the wall can be found on Stewart and N. 6th Street. Other notable public art comes from […]

Streets: World Roundup (Aug 25 – Sept 21)

For our latest edition of Streets World Roundup, our featured mural is from Geoff McFetridge for the new Warby Parker store in Venice. The illustrator, designer, and artist has worked with the eyewear line before, but this latest project which graces the facade of their location on Abbott Kinney is the most striking collaboratioin yet, taking advantage of the architectural elements of the surface brilliantly. Take a look at the inside of the store here and head over for a look yourself when you are […]

Releases: Kid Acne – ‘Council Pop’ (screen-printed 10 year anniversary edition)

Kid Acne’s coming back through like an amber gambler with the re-release of his 2003 album Council Pop in a special 10 year anniversary edition (has it really been 10 years?). AM readers will probably be more familiar with the graffiti / street art side of Kid Acne’s creative output, but if you haven’t heard his Yorkshire infused hip hop, then this could be an ideal intro to the world of Eddy Fresh. Streets ahead of his debut Rap Traffic, Council Pop lacks some of the […]

Releases: Kid Acne – ‘Oh My Days’ Screenprint

It was hard to miss Kid Acne‘s Oh My Days mural on the side of the Village Underground in London earlier this year. Here at AM we love the Acne sloganeering approach to graffiti and oh happy days that the boy Ackers has just released a screenprint based upon the huge wall. Oh My Days is a 2 colour screenprint, signed numbered and embossed in an edition of 50 and available right now via his shop. Discuss Kid Acne here.

Showing: Kid Acne ‘Damn Straight’ @ Inoperable Gallery

Showing at Vienna’s Inoperable Gallery currently, Damn Straight is Kid Acne’s latest body of work with a focus on his stabby women characters. We love these tough sisters of the sword, and the whole mystical world that surrounds them. Graphite drawings, one-off screen prints, mono-prints and paintings are presented along with some of the ouija boards (with a Yorkshire flava) we saw back at his 2009 London show When The Smoke Clears and a series of architectural renderings (hang-outs of the stabby women, we presume). Kid […]

Openings: “Space//Form” @ Breeze Block Gallery (Part 2)

Following directly on from Part 1 of our coverage of the busy Space//Form opening, AM now delves a little deeper pictorially into the artwork created for this huge group exhibition of 110 artists with a series of pictures where the art is more viewable (like the Mark Dean Veca installation above). To recap, all of the participating artists were given an identical 10×10 inch cradled timber panel by exhibition sponsor Ampersand as the medium to work on. The exhibition curator, Arrested Motion’s Sven Davis chose a brief […]

Preview: “Space//Form” Group Exhibition @ Breeze Block Gallery

As the opening of the Space//Form group exhibition draws ever nearer, and following on from our studio view, AM brings you a glimpse of some of the work in this huge show. Over 100 artists are participating in the exhibit, which opens on 6th September at Breeze Block Gallery in Portland. The artists were each given the same brief and the same materials to work with and asked to explore and represent their interpretation of space and form within either the natural or built environment. Each piece of […]
