Ron English x Bigfoot x Jason Maloney Mural in Jersey City

Yesterday afternoon, one of our favorite contemporary pop artists, Ron English, along with west coast artists Bigfoot and Jason Maloney, injected a little extra life into downtown Jersey City. They blessed Hudson County Art Supply’s exterior wall in Jersey City, NJ with a huge, colorful, and collaborative mural.   It was a gorgeous day for painting. Even Jersey City Mayor, Jeremiah Healey showed up unexpectedly to show his appreciation and support for the project. Everyone was in good spirits and there were aerosol cans everywhere. […]

Openings/Signing: Brendan Monroe @ Park Life

Last night, AM was fortunate enough to attend Brendan Monroe’s (interviewed) opening and book signing at the Park Life Store in San Francisco.  Brendan, who is soft spoken, modest and rather inviting, cheerfully signed and doodled copies of his new book, b. monroe. The monograph is a stunning look into the artist’s mind, diving deep into the microcosmos of Brendan’s work. Compiling his sculpture and paintings from 2005 to 2007, the book perfectly captures the scope of Brendan’s world, made all the more impressive by […]
