Streets: Phlegm (USA)

After participating in couple of street art festivals all over Europe, British muralist and artist Phlegm recently visited the East Coast of US. During his visit, he painted three huge murals, each quite different than the others, but all so recognizable and unique. The first one he did was in collaboration with the Bushwick Collective, on Troutman Street in Brooklyn. This image shows a huge giraffe that birds are using as a hideout from poachers that are catching them. Existing tags on the building were cleverly […]

Openings: Andrew Schoultz – “New Work” @ Morgan Lehman

A couple weeks ago, the Morgan Lehman Gallery in New York welcomed Andrew Schoultz back for his third solo show there simply entitled New Work. Touching on geo-politcal issues through the metaphor of imagery derived from currency, ships, maelstroms, trojan horses, symbols of the illuminati and other common motifs seen in the Mission School artist’s repertoire, the new paintings were set off nicely with a background of bricks and overlapping water features on the walls. Take a look at more photos from the packed opening night below… Discuss Andrew […]

Tomorrow night (September 12) in New York, Cheim & Read will be presenting a show from Barry McGee, his first solo with the gallery and in the Big Apple in 8 years. One of the most influential graffiti and street artists from the Bay Area, McGee has “assembled clusters of framed drawings and hand-painted wood panels accompany loose stacks of embellished surfboards, fetish-like wooden objects, and specially-made furniture.” Sounds like this is one of the must attend shows of the year if you are in the area… so […]
