Rewind: Dec 23 – Mar 7

It’s been a while since our last Rewind feature so it’s time we introduce some videos to you. You may remember last month when we shared the #WithSyria campaign that launched on March 13, the third year anniversary of the conflict and resulting death & destruction in the country. If you remember, Banksy lent his famous “Girl With Red Balloon” iamge to the cause, but there was also a video produced that can be seen below as well as on the #WithSyria website. Other worthy […]

Openings: Pose & Revok – “Uphill Both Ways” @ Jonathan LeVine Gallery

MSK members Pose and Revok (pictured above with gallerist Levine) recently visited New York City and immediately made their mark by being the current artists to work on the highly visible Bowery & Houston Mural (here & here). They also came into town to premiere respective new bodies of work at the Jonathan LeVine Gallery. The tandem exhibition (curated by Roger Gastman) was a breath of fresh air from the graffiti-based fine artists.

Streets: Revok x POSE on Bowery & Houston (Part II)

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 […]

Streets: Revok x POSE on Bowery & Houston (Part I)

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 […]
