Last month, AM attended the opening of Brett Amory’s (featured) new solo show entitled Twenty-Four in New York. For his second showing at Jonathan LeVine Gallery (alongside POSE & REVOK), the SF-based artist continued his series of works documenting various locations in selected cities, all in one hour increments. Rounding out the paintings, were the display of found objects at the spots he featured as well as a site-specific installation which incorporated a magazine stand with structural components. Take a look at more photos below… Discuss Brett Amory here.

Times Square has been the stage for various projects form artists we have covered on AM in the past, not the least of these from Tracey Emin and JR. Now the high profile location has been playing nightly the Ryan McGinley video Varuo that we shared with earlier this year. The video is part of July’s Midnight Moment, the synchronized program on over fifteen of the largest digital signs in Times Square and will play through the rest of the month from 11:57 p.m. – midnight.

In part one of our behind the scenes coverage on the creative process of the new mural, we showed you the relentless work ethic of both Revok and POSE. It was interesting to see the first time two artists with different approaches were tasked with creating a work of art on display for the people of New York at the historic Bowery & Houston wall. Taking over six days, this piece was finally completed and it turned out wonderful as the text concept and end product reflected […]
Amongst ten artists around the world that got commissioned to present their vision for DKNY Artworks, the New York based How & Nosm took on the daunting task of working on the fashion giant’s home court. Entitled I Just Called To Say, the piece the brothers created helped highlight the iconic DKNY logo on a series of billboards on the corner of 48th Street & 7th Ave. It seems like How & Nosm are hitting their stride since creating an impressive mural at the iconic Bowery & […]
It was a giant step for mankind when Buzz Aldrin first stepped on the moon and now, another big step has occurred in the career of KAWS as he was tapped to re-design this year’s MTV VMA “Moonman” trophy. His iconic work is continuing to hit the mainstream, especially after his inflatable companion was revealed in last year’s Macy’s Thanksgiving parade. Now the 2013 winners of the VMA’s, set to be held for the first time at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center, will receive a prize from the locally […]
AM took some time to catch up with artists Revok and POSE (pictured above) as they were next to tackle that monster wall on the corner of Bowery & Houston. Following in the footsteps of many notable artists such as RETNA, Kenny Scharf, Barry McGee, Shepard Fairey, AIKO, Os Gemeos, JR, Keith Haring, CRASH and Faile, the two members of the MSK crew accepted this hefty project at the historic mural location, but took a little bit of a different approach. Over the course of six days, the […]
Rostarr (featured) was recently invited to participate in the Open Canvas intiative put on by Absolut in Brooklyn. The New York-based artist, who only recently exhibited at the local branch of the Opera Gallery (covered), joined twenty other participants as they transformed North 6th street in Williamsburg through the project. The next phase will take place in San Francisco later this summer, but for now, check out more photos of Romon and his calligraphy in action. Photo credit: Richard Maitland. Discuss Rostarr here.
It’s been a while since we featured an in-depth look (see 2012) at one of RIME’s street pieces here on AM. It’s not for lack of material as the prolific artist otherwise known as Jersey Joe travels constantly putting up work around the world. This newest piece in New York featuring his signature mix of letters and gritty cartoonish characters was painted in the shadow of the Manhattan Bridge. Also, check out an associated video and interview with RIME by the Village Voice where he covers […]
It looks like Chinese artist Liu Bolin was back in New York again recently since the last time he was in the Big Apple when we hung out with him and JR as they worked on an interesting collaborative project together. While in town for his current exhibition at Eli Klein Fine Art, site of his show in 2012 (covered), the photographer and painter decided to stop by 5Pointz Aerosol Arts Center, in an area of Queens which has heavy graffiti presence. The walls there will soon be replaced […]
Last week, Marianne Boesky Gallery put together a hot (NSFW) group show just in time for the warm weather to hit New York City. Entitled Sunsets & Pussy, this show brings together three generations of artists – Ed Ruscha, Lucien Smith, Betty Tompkins and Piotr Uklański. Each artist contributed works that explored two classic themes of summer wonder. Some tongue in cheek and some a little more subtle, this showcase features some interesting and creative take on the creative theme. Check out a NSFW look below.
