Previews: Bom.K – “L’imprévisible Imaginaire” @ Moniker Art Fair 2015

This year’s Moniker Art Fair 2015 in London will be hosting the premiere UK solo exhibition of Bom.K, organized by MYA gallery. L’imprévisible Imaginaire will include the newest paintings by one of the founding members of the DMV crew.

Openings: Moniker Art Fair 2010

One of the main reasons AM traveled to London this year was to catch the premiere of the Moniker Art Fair. The opening night was packed from the moment the doors were lifted with what seemed to be everyone we knew in the scene in attendance. The inaugural fair focused on bringing attention to the rising urban art movement and included galleries such as New Image Art, Carmichael Gallery, Black Rat Projects, CampBarbossa, Galleria Patricia Armocida and Anonymous Gallery. Another nice addition was the artist booths that featured the likes […]
