Openings: Ryan McGinness – “Women: Blacklight Paintings & Sculpture” @ Charles Banks

Ryan McGinness is an artist with a seemingly limitless passion and a work ethic to match as evidenced by his back to back exhibition in New York City during Frieze week. First was his very technical Sketches & Solutions at  Gering Lopez (covered). Then the following night, Ryan took across town to Charles Banks Gallery for the next installment of his eye catching UV reactive painting series entitled Women: Blacklight Paintings & Sculptures (See previous stops in LA, NYC,  Miami & PdP).

Utilizing his signature bricolage technique Sachs engineers all the needed equipment of the imagined mission including exploratory vehicles, mission control, launch platforms, suiting stations, […]

Openings: Barry McGee @ Prism

Just hours ago, the PRISM gallery in Los Angeles opened their doors to graffiti royalty Barry McGee’s solo showing and the multitude of fans, collectors, and well-wishers who turned up to take in the new body of work. Despite his part as a pallbearer in a recent mural by Sever, the Bay Area stalwart known as Twist demonstrated to the world that his art form was still very much alive with an impressive display featuring paintings, photos, sculptural work (some cleverly motorized), and his signature clusters […]

On Saturday night, Giant Robot 2 on Sawtelle St. in Los Angeles will be the stage for 34 of Eishi Takaoka’s new sculptures. The Japanese artist is known for his hand-carved wooden heads which are often painted and then placed atop empty glass medicine bottles.

Teaser: “Noteworthy Project Auction” @ Martha Otero Gallery

A couple months ago, we shared with you a project from Samsung where Tim Biskup was asked to re-imagine the sad face emoticon.

Now, the series of work produced for the Noteworthy Project will be auctioned off to benefit Peace First at a […]

Openings: Tomokazu Matsuyama – “Thousand Regards” @ American University Museum

AM was fortunate enough to be able to trek down recently to Washington D.C. and catch Tomokazu Matsuyama’s (interviewed) solo exhibition at the Katzen Arts Center at the American University Museum. Aptly titled Thousand Regards, Matsu presented a balanced mix of works that varied from sculptures, paintings to installations to greet the guests visiting the museum. The well curated show displayed the many facets of the artist’s unique heritage and east meets west artistic approach. We caught his classic Kirin paintings and triptychs from his Running Deep […]
