Update: Jin Young Yu

It’s been a while since AM sat down for a chat with Korean artist Jin Young Yu so we thought we would update you with some of her new work since then. You may have had some glimpses of these pieces from our coverage of the London Art Fair and the Aqua Art Fair during Basel Week Miami, but you can see a full set of pics after the jump…

Bumblebee Installation @ Thinkspace

If you remember, AM last hung out with Bumblebee last year, as he placed one of his signature phonebooth installations on the streets of LA. Well, he’s taken it a step further with this pretty cool installation in the front alcove of Thinkspace for the “A Cry For Help” show (covered). Take a look at some more additional photos after the jump…

Preview: Damien Hirst – “End of an Era” @ Gagosian Gallery (Madison Avenue)

On Jan. 30, Gagosian Gallery on Madison Avenue opens an exhibition containing works by the most famous and controversial contemporary art superstar of his generation. Attracting loud attention with everything he does, YBA leader Damien Hirst will bring over to the US’s shores new paintings and sculpture with the centerpiece being “End of an Era”, a severed bull’s head with golden horns and crowned with a solid gold disc. It is a classic Hirst formaldehyde sculpture that acts as a coda to his piece “The […]

Openings: Mark Jenkins & Aakash Nihalani @ Carmichael Gallery

Last week, important shows for two young artists, Mark Jenkins and Aakash Nihalani opened jointly at the Carmichael Gallery (their last show before moving to the new Culver City location). Mark Jenkins brought many of his classics indoors such as the paper tape carousel horse and faceless hooded mannequins. In addition, the gallery setting allowed him to remix and play a little with his repertoire like with his usual multi-limbed bodies formed into a side table. This varied body of work, entitled “Meaning is Overrated” […]

Openings: London Art Fair

This year’s London Art Fair, held from January 13-17, attracted over 23,000 visitors and featured a wide variety of art to hold their attention. No matter how many art fairs we see or attend, we can never get enough of tremendous amount of paintings, sculptures, videos, installations, and other art on display – buffet style. Take a look at all the pics after the jump including fantastic new works from Jin Young Yu, whom we interviewed early last year.

Setup: Mark Jenkins – “Meaning is Overrated” & Aakash Nihalani – “On & Off (Often On)” @ Carmichael Gallery

It’s always interesting to see how street artists adapt their art to fit into a gallery setting, especially when they are so non-conventional (even for street art) like Mark Jenkins and Aakash Nihalani.  The duo will bring their “urban interventions” indoors tomorrow night at the Carmichael Gallery – Jenkins with “Meaning is Overrated” and Nihalani with “On & Off (Often On).” Take a look at more pics of the artists setting up after the jump…

Preview: Andrew Hem – “One Leads to Another” @ LeBasse Projects

Andrew Hem (interviewed) is opening an expansive show tonight at LeBasse Projects featuring paintings, drawings, and sculptural work. Entitled “One Leads to Another,” the exhibition was influenced extensively by his recent trip to Cambodia. Through his artwork, Andrew asks what if the millions of people that died during the Khmer Rouge period, especially the children had lived on instead? How might things have been different?  Be sure to read more about this on the Erratic Phenomena blog. Also, check out some preview images after the […]

Adam Wallacavage – Tarina Tarantino x Sephora Launch Pary

Fashion and art often intersect (Louis Vuitton x Murakami, Sprouse, and Hirst, Shu Uemura x Ai Yamaguchi, just to name a few) , so it comes as no surprise that we see Tarina Tarantino ask Adam Wallacavage to help her with the launch party of her new Sephora “Beauty Collection” set to be released in March. Looks like custom pink versions of Wallacavage signature octopus chandeliers were out in full force during the event. Take a look at more pics after the jump…

Jeff Koons & Damien Hirst Prices Drop 50%

Two of the biggest stars of the art boom in the latter part of the last decade, Jeff Koons and Damien Hirst, were bound to feel the effects of the down economy. It’s taken some time to compile the data of all the fallout but it looks like their works have taken about a 50% hit in value since those happier times. On the brighter side, sounds as though the fairly or unfairly portrayed scapegoats of the art world’s extravagance should make a recovery eventually, […]

Preview: Colin Christian – “Inner Space” @ Opera Gallery (London)

It looks like Colin Christian (whose art was recently featured in Kayne West’s concert) is planning to go big with his upcoming show in London at the Opera Gallery. “Inner Space” will feature Colin’s full-bodied sculptures of luscious girls in what look to be tight latex suits – completely understandable as he used to make latex clothing for fetish stores around the country before he started creating his own art. It also looks like he’ll be going large scale with his signature head sculptures (seen […]
