AM recently attended a group exhibition (previewed) held by Vandalog and M.A.N.Y. in New York. The show Up Close & Personal was unique in the sense that it was not held outdoors or in a gallery, but in an actual apartment on the Upper West Side. The show was limited to viewing for less than a week, but less is more as art fans were escorted in small groups for an intimate viewing session of small works by Aiko, Chris Stain, Elbowtoe, Gaia, How & […]
It’s always a pleasure to see some of Conor Harrington’s (interviewed) outdoor work, and this beautifully produced short film that he recently put together was a real treat to watch.

Hot on the heels of the recent opening of her Fata Morgana solo show at Galerie L.J. in Paris, Swoon (interviewed) made a trip to London last week. AM had the pleasure of spending some time with the artist over a couple of days while she prepared a site-specific installation at Black Rat Projects for Small Acts of Resistance, a group show that will also feature works by Peter Kennard, Dotmasters, Matt Small (interviewed), Know Hope, and Armsrock (interviewed). The exhibition’s title references the recently-published book […]
A couple weeks ago, the show we told you about, “There is Nothing Dear (There Is Too Much Dear)”, opened up in Toronto at the Show & Tell Gallery. The exhibition featured some beautiful works from Know Hope (some of his most complex ever we feel), as well as installations throughout the showspace. Take a look at more opening pics after the jump as well as the actual pieces here.
Israel’s Know Hope will be opening his show tonight in Toronto at the Show & Tell Gallery. The prolific street artist has creatively fashioned together some found objects and painted them with his signature imagery for this new body of work entitled “There is Nothing Dear (There Is Too Much Dear)” (teased). Also included will be works on paper featuring his long-armed characters and some words of wisdom. More after the jump…
Know Hope (interviewed), whose upcoming show in Toronto we just told you about yesterday, recently found some time again this year for the annual BLK River Festival (you may remember our coverage from last year). This beautiful mural featuring much of the Tel Aviv street artist’s signature imagery is entitled “For the Homeless Heart and Anxious Fingers” and is positioned directly opposite of a former Jewish ghetto in the second district of Vienna. The festival is still ongoing so make sure you check it out […]
Coming up next month, Israel’s street poet Know Hope will be bringing his insightful work to the Show & Tell Gallery in Toronto. If previous shows are any indication (like this one), our brothers up north will be in for a treat as the Mr. Hope is known for putting together some pretty immersive installations for his gallery endeavors. Join us on October 7th for a look at the human struggle through Know Hope’s imagery, wording, and metaphors. Discuss this show here. Discuss Know Hope […]
Street poet Know Hope, who recently tried his hand at trainwriting in Croatia, apparently also left his mark on the walls there. This mural piece also had some sculptural elements which the Israel-based artist has been known to include in both his outdoor and indoor work. A closer look after the jump…
