Openings: CRASH – “Broken English” @ Jonathan LeVine Gallery

One of the summer exhibitions that we checked out recently was by Bronx-based graffiti artist Crash, a.k.a. John Matos (featured) at Jonathan LeVine Gallery. Entitled Broken English this freshly minted body of work spanned traditional mediums such as canvas and paper, but also highlights Crash’s dexterity as a graffiti master as he worked his painterly street magic to redo a Mini Cooper in his signature style & visual language. This great exhibition will be up until July 26th, so if you’re in NYC, this is a must see. Photo credit: Joe Russo for Arrested Motion. […]

Openings: Anthony Lister – “Power Tripping” @ Jonathan LeVine Gallery

The many faces of Anthony Lister (art mutant, street vandal, superhero activist), turned up with a couple hundred handfuls of adoring fans for his latest solo show in NYC at the Jonathan LeVine Gallery, appropriately titled Power Tripping. If you are a fan of the Australian artist and his fairly constant parade of off-hand social shenanigans, then you’re in luck, as there were no shortage of them at this opening. There were more then a few costume changes throughout the course of the evening, including some social satire […]

Shepard Fairey x Dave Chappelle @ Radio City Music Hall

Eight years after comedy giant Dave Chapelle walked off the set of the third season the Chappelle’s Show and into the veil of private life, he made a triumphant return to the spotlight of the Big Apple at the historic Radio City Music Hall recently. To commemorate this event, Chapelle commissioned artist Shepard Fairey to create unique artwork for the show. AM was lucky enough to attend a fun night filled with comedy and music as Kanye West also made a surprise performance for the pumped […]
Jeff Koons Whitney Museum Retrospective AM 84

Openings: Jeff Koons – “A Retrospective” @ Whitney Museum

Last weekend, New York’s Whitney Museum of American Art premiered its retrospective of American artist Jeff Koons. Simply entitled A Retrospective, this exhibition bears significant importance to both parties. For the Whitney, it represents the last exhibition to be held at this original location before moving to their new home in the Meatpacking District of Manhattan in the spring of 2015. For Koons, it’s the first time in a career which spans 5 decades in which he’s had a museum show in a city that he calls […]

Spaces: The KAWS Studio

Followers of KAWS and his pop culture infused abstractions have always been impressed with his clean lifework and impeccable attention to detail. Taking a look at his Brooklyn studio, designed by Wonderwall in 2013, one can see similarities in the street turned contemporary artist’s taste in architecture. The light-infused and wide open work space will definitely come in handy as he prepares for his show in Los Angeles, coming up in a couple months. Via Hypebeast. Discuss KAWS here.

Her largest exhibition to date, The Devil’s Pantomime, featured over 30 paintings & drawings created during her long battle with Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome (learn more here) over the last several years. AM stopped by to check out this deeply personal body of work recently and wanted to share some of the photos with you. The show runs through tomorrow (June 26th) for […]
Israel Lund David Lewis AM 01

Openings: Israel Lund – “Israel Lund” @ David Lewis Gallery

AM recently attended the much anticipated opening for Israel Lund at Lower East Side’s David Lewis Gallery. The eponymously named solo includes both his signature silkscreened canvas paintings along with a new series of sculptures which center around one of his core tools – the silkscreen. As the title suggests, this is Israel Lund presenting his take on Israel Lund, but unlike self-titled shows that we’ve experienced in the past, this exhibition seems to be the artist conducting an impression of himself. From his enlarged silkscreens […]

But before we get too far ahead of ourselves we took a time-out to swing by The Standard Hotel where he took care of his first order of business with the release of his new book appropriately titled SKETCHBOOK, which is a compilation of drawing, random thoughst and conceptual visions of time travel spanning over the last decade.
