Isaac Cordal has a pretty unique take on street art and after seeing his work online for a while, AM recently came across some of his concrete sculptures whilst wandering around the streets of London late at night with a group of friends in Brick Lane. One of our party, who shall not be named, found out the hard way that the little concrete guys are meant to stay in their surroundings rather than being taken for home consumption, as Isaac uses a high strength […]

Capping off an awesome Armory week opening at Bryce Wolkowitz, José Parlá & Standard New York held an intimate signing for the hometown fans. Held at the exclusive Boom Boom Room roof top lounge, fans enjoyed breathtaking views while they hung out at “José’s corner”. Mr. Parlá merrily greeted each supporter with the love and respect that we’ve come to expect from the humble artist. All who attended the signing were treated to a little calligraphic magic as José took time to personalize each book with […]
AM recently got to attend a book signing at the David Zwirner gallery and catch Marcel Dzama’s book signing session. Held on a sunday afternoon, we caught up with Marcel as he graciously spoke and signed books for those that attended. Marcel also took some time to draw a beautiful little sketch for fans who patiently waited in a two hour queue. For those who haven’t seen pics from his current show at the New York gallery, take a look here. More photos from the […]
The solo exhibition Due Date by Brian Adam Douglas (interviewed) opened on Thursday 9 March to a full house at London’s Black Rat Projects.

Also present was Douglas’s New York dealer, Andrew Edlin of Andrew Edlin Gallery, who’d flown in the day before to attend. Due Date consists […]

AM got all enthused late last year over Kid Acne’s solo show (covered) at Concrete Hermit entitled When the Smoke Clears. For us, the defining part of the installation was the wall of small one-off screenprinted drawings in all their black and pink splendour. Well, if that monochromatic installation floats your boat, you can now thumb through the series of drawings in Kid Acne’s brand new When the Smoke Clears Zine. Produced with a screenprinted, embossed and numbered cover, the 52 page zine is available […]
AM favorite Fuco Ueda has been off US soil for a while now, but she has still been producing exquisite artwork.

Bunkamura Gallery will hold a solo exhibition also titled “Lucid Dream” from Feb 2nd – Feb 13th to kick off the book release with new works by Fuco. Pre-order your copy here. Check out a sneak […]
Looks like Sweet Toof has been re-appropriating an undisclosed number of Metro newspapers in an interventionist culture-jamming caper. Sweet Toof has got his teef into the front, back and centrefold pages of the paper, so check today’s ‘free-press’ at underground tube stations throughout London and try and find a copy for yourself ahead of Sweet Toof’s exhibition opening tonight. Having A Dig opens at Arch 402 Gallery, Cremer Street, London E2 tonight, and runs until 3rd February. Discuss Sweet Toof here.
As a fitting followup to the impressive display of work unveiled during Art Basel Week with Joshua Liner Gallery (covered), Kris Kuski has also just provided his fans the first wide-arcing examination of his work to date. Published by BeinART, the well-produced hardcover publication serves as a chronicling of the mixed-media artist’s unique vision, captured within 144-pages of wonderfully crisp photographs of his sculptural works, a plethora of detail shots that magnify the intricate detail achieved, and a scattering of text that further shines light […]
