Releases: How & Nosm Mono Silkscreens from Pace Prints

Spanish-born, German-raised and New York City based identical twin brothers How & Nosm (Raoul and Davide Perre), have been spending most of the last three months doing a residency at Watanabe Press in Brooklyn, working on big project with Pace Prints. During this period, they created a new series of hand painted mono silkscreens for a show that’s scheduled for spring 2014. By using their recognizable red, black and white color palette, with a small touch of pink, the brothers created heavily hand-painted works on paper […]

Studio Visits: Dennis McNett – “Temple of Wolfbat” @ Known Gallery

AM recently stopped by the Wolfbat Studios of Dennis McNett. The Brooklyn-based artist is getting ready for his solo exhibition entitled Temple of Wolfbat at Known Gallery in Los Angeles that is set to open on November 16th. While there, we got a sneak peek of what’s to come for this big Los Angeles exhibition. From sculptures, leather etchings, wood carving, to collage paintings, McNett continues to bring us on his animalistic storytelling journey. Discuss Dennis McNett here.

Showing: Jeff Depner – ‘Variations: Black Napkins’ @ Nancy Margolis Gallery

Vancouver-based artist Jeff Depner opened his debut New York solo exhibition last week at Nancy Margolis Gallery. Variations: Black Napkins showcases Depner’s intense application process where he places multiple layers of paint amidst an equal amount of reductive processes to build up his compositions. His hard edged forms have an organic feel amongst the highly stylized architectural notions he presents. Geometric configurations wrestle with natural elements in his paintings, where colour theory underpins his architectonic aesthetic. The work itself is presented with a variety of paint types on canvas, using the […]
Galerie Perrotin NYC Art Carnival AM 03

Openings: Galerie Perrotin – “Art Carnival Park” @ Russian Tea Room

In anticipation for the second exhibition at Galerie Perrotin’s New York outpost, we bring you an inside look at the art party of the year (thus far). After the grand opening of the exhibition with Paola Pivi, a list of the who’s who in the New York art scene arrived last month at the Russian Tea Room for a special Art Carnival Park. Emmanuel Perrotin, known for throwing some of the most creative and festive events, transformed the famed venue into an incredible state fair […]

Streets: Banksy – “Better Out Than In” (New York) – Final Days

Since we last mentioned Banksy’s ongoing art residency in the Big Apple, he’s since created a piece near Yankee Stadium (seen below) and painted over an existing piece in a thrift shop for charity (also seen below). And now, earlier today, he brought the historic Better Out Than In to a close with his take (seen above) on the bubble tags made famous by vandals in New York. The inflatable throw-up was seen on the Long Island Expressway near Queens. Discuss Banksy here.

Swoon Houston Bowery wall AM 10

Streets: Swoon – Bowery & Houston Mural (Part I)

Earlier today, AM stopped by the corner of Bowery & Houston to catch up with Swoon (interviewed) as she started her mural. Putting up her work over the last two artists here (REVOK & POSE), the street artist and activist is only one in a long line of creatives who have blessed the location in the previous months (see here). We’ll be following up with the finished piece, but for now, enjoy some in-progress photos. Discuss Swoon here.

Previews: Jeff Depner – ‘Variations: Black Napkins’ @ Nancy Margolis Gallery

Vancouver-based artist Jeff Depner opens his debut New York solo exhibition this week at Nancy Margolis Gallery. Depner is renowned for his highly graphical, abstract compositions and his use of layers, textures, colour and repetition of geometric elements create a visual feast. We’ve featured a look into Depner’s creative process previously here on AM, and it’s worth taking a look back at that to fully understand how many iterations and transitional layers each of his paintings is subjected to prior to it being judged as complete.

Streets: Banksy – “Better Out Than In” (New York) – Day 19, 20, 21

After we visited his literal outdoor gallery installation last Friday, Banksy continued his assault on the streets of New York over the weekend. Adding a video in Staten Island (below) that completed his tour of all five boroughs, Mr. B also created a clever strength tester stencil piece (below) utilizing existing elements, and a new one in South Bronx to start your Monday off (above).
