In addition to an impressive selection of new paintings and prints on display at Martha Otero’s booth during Art HK ’11 several weeks ago (covered), an advance copy of James Jean’s Rebus was also on hand for attendees to immerse themselves into. Sophisticated in design and comprehensive in scope, the publication will serve as the first extensive catalog of the talented Los Angeles-based artist’s fine art efforts since moving on from cover art guru of graphic comic Fables. Named in honor of his most recent […]
As we first previewed over half a year ago, it appears the much-anticipated, highly ambitious Tauba Auerbach pop-up book has finally worked out all the production kinks and is ready for an official release. Published by Printed Matter in a hand signed and numbered edition of 1,000 (with 100 proofs), [2,3] is comprised of six individual pop-up sculptures, each housed in its own cover and collectively assembled in a custom slipcase. Exploring the dynamics between two dimensions and three dimensions, a common theme in Auerbach’s […]
During the recent Art HK ’11, controversial photographer extraordinaire Terry Richardson presented a body of Asian themed work, aptly dubbed HONG KONG Terry Richardson, with clothing company Diesel. The selection of toned down, while still edgy portraits centered around celebrities native to the city of Hong Kong. A book by the same name, produced in conjunction with Ooi Botos and limited to 1000 copies, offers up Richardson’s entire catalog of photographs taken in Hong Kong during his travels there. More installation shots after the jump.

Fans were treated also to a mini pop-up exhibition as each artist’s work […]
Spanish street sculptor Isaac Cordal, whom we first introduced to you last month, recently dropped some new work in London. Follow the Leader is part of his continuing series of street interventions entitled Cement Eclipses, which as a reminder is also the name of his soon to be released book. For those in London, where Isaac was previously based, make sure you stop by Pure Evil Gallery next week for the book launch on May 26th. Alongside the regular edition, there will be two special editions […]
Black Rat Projects in London recently hosted [email protected], a three-day event running from 5 to 7 May which launched @earth, the new photo-essay by Peter Kennard, assisted by Tarek Salhany. The exhibition also showcased a collection of works that packed a punch by former armour designer, War Boutique. Although AM felt War Boutique’s art was sometimes a little easy or obvious, at other times it was remarkable: You think it has the subtlety of an old Panzer IV, that you can see it coming from […]
Some of you may remember Tim O’Brien from his popular take on Charlie Brown for the Monster? exhibition (covered) a while back. Unfortunately, the piece later ended up being the target of the notoriously zealous estate of Charles Schultz. We’ve been following his mostly illustrative work on his blog ever since that show and have enjoyed the background information and insight posted by the talented artist on various projects. Of particular interest though because of recent events is the TIME cover that he created for […]
