Streets: TrustoCorp (New York)

Since the TrustoLand installation and show at Art Basel Week Miami last year, we haven’t had any updates on satiric street pranksters TrustoCorp. As of late though, there has been more activity spotted around New York, but we wanted to first bring your attention to these phone booth interventions featuring parodies of popular reality shows with The Real Housewives of Baghdad seen above and The Real World [North Korea] seen after the jump…

Openings: Olek – The Bad Artists Imitate, The Great Artists Steal @ Jonathan LeVine Gallery

It’s been a while since we’ve caught up with artist Agata Oleksiak aka Olek. Last time, she took on Wall Street and its famous charging bull and this time, she’s exhibiting her works in a solo at Jonathan LeVine Gallery. The show title The Bad Artist Imitate, The Great Artists Steal may sound familiar because you probably saw it mentioned most recently from Banksy at his Bristol Museum show and previously from master Pablo Picasso. Being a performance artist, she got a few helpers to become […]

Openings: Olson Olson Recine & Ass @ Nyehaus

AM recently caught the opening of a very unique show entitled Olson Olson Recine & Ass at New York’s Nyehaus. Sounds kinda like a law firm right? Well, that’s the point as this group show was titled by a father/son duo Steve & Alex Olson. The central theme of exhibition was the wheel, so whether it was riding a skateboard or motorcycle, the artists Phil Frost, Curtis Kulig, Yaniv Evan, Bob Recine and the previously mentioned duo have always been rolling in perpetual motion. Another cool […]

Openings: MS Fundraiser for Tim Strazza @ Joshua Liner Gallery

We all hit bumps in the road, but with a little help we can all overcome any obstacles. As mentioned previously, a good friend of AM and assistant director of Joshua Liner Gallery, Tim Strazza, was unfortunately diagnosed with a Multiple Sclerosis. We helped sponsor a fundraiser created by the gallery to generate funds that went to support Tim and his medical bills. It seemed that almost everyone came out of the woodworks to donate artwork for the charity auction including a heavy rotation of […]

Previews: Safewalls x Cirque du Soleil @ Trifecta Gallery

In the past, many of you must have enjoyed performances by Cirque du Soleil and more recently, the limited edition artist collaborations (here, here & here) presented to you by our friends at Safewalls. Now, it’s time to take the show on the road as the Safewalls x Cirque du Soleil artwork will travel to Las Vegas where the current productions of KA and Zumanity are running in the City of Sin where four new original artworks were created for the Vegas based productions by Frank […]

Openings: Chet Zar – “Faces of Death” @ Last Rites Gallery

Last Friday night in New York, Chet Zar (interviewed) unveiled his latest series of work enititled Faces of Death at the Last Rites Gallery. The nightmarish portraits were quite striking in their custom frames and featured creatures from Chet’s imagination that we wouldn’t want to meet in a dark alley, and for that matter not in the day time either. Take a look at more pics from the opening after the jump…

Streets: Shepard Fairey – Manhattan

Earlier this month, Shepard Fairey came and visited the Big Apple to work on a few projects (more on that later). In between his indoor sessions, he invited AM to tag along while he worked to beautify some legal spots in Manhattan. Many of you may recognize his classic wheat paste-ups, but Mr. Obey and his assistant Nick have expanded his outdoor tool-set to stenciling. Much like his giant Mandala Ornament mural and he stenciled in Miami and his WeHo Library wall in Los Angeles, he’s […]

Benefits: MS Fundraiser for Tim Strazza @ Joshua Liner Gallery

This Thursday, a very special art fundraiser will be held at Joshua Liner Gallery for our friend Tim Strazza who was unfortunately diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis. We are helping to sponsor a benefit event where all proceeds will go to his medical bills. Some of your favorite AM artists have generously donated works for the cause which will be available via a silent auction. Online absentee bids will be available, so please contact the gallery. The art community has banded together to show their support. […]
