Preview: David Flores x Phil Stern @ The Phil Stern Gallery

Tomorrow night, December 8th, the Phil Stern Gallery will debut a new exhibit by award-winning photographer Phil Stern and artist David Flores. If you remember a few months back, Flores painted a mural in the heart of Downtown Los Angeles based on a James Dean photograph shot by the Stern (covered). Interesting enough, it was through the photos of AM photographer Carlos Gonzalez that Stern first saw the mural. The remixed James Dean wall made such an impression on Stern that he decided to open […]

Streets: Sego (Mid-City Arts) Los Angeles

Recently, Mexican-born graffiti artist Sego arrived in Los Angeles and painted a mural on the back of the Mid City Arts complex. Having arrived from Miami where he was part of the Wynwood Walls project, Sego wasted no time during his time in L.A. with this large scale rendering of a creature which feels both organic and fantastical. Utilizing a color palette and style that has subtle roots in Mexican art, Sego is making strides in trying to bring attention to the growing and often […]

Basel Week Miami ’11 / Streets: RETNA

A major player during this year’s Art Basel Week Miami, it seemed like RETNA (featured) and his work was in demand everywhere. Not only did we see his handiwork at the Primary Projects group show, in the Wynwood District, and at various fairs, we also had the chance to attend a Q&A session at his temporary luxury home on Hibiscus Island. The mural seen above though was probably the largest wall we saw from him in Miami, and is located near Ron English’s piece from 2009. More photos […]

Streets: John Baldessari – “The First $100,000 I Ever Made” (New York)

This $100,000 bill recently showed up in New York, along the re-purposed train tracks known as The High Line. The First $100,000 I Ever Made is the work of famed American conceptual artist John Baldessari and is displayed prominently on a 25-foot-by-75-foot billboard (above 18th St). This example of art near or on the famed pedestrian walkway is the first we have seen since KAWS and FriendsWithYou. More photos by Bill Orcutt after the jump…
COPE2 for Wynwood Walls in Miami.

Streets: World Roundup (Nov. 28 – Dec. 4)

This week’s world roundup of street work is heavily tilted towards Art Basel Week Miami. With so many artists in town, there was bound to be some overlap on walls and in some cases – collaborations. Not sure if the Buff Monster & COPE2 piece above was planned as a tag team effort, but they seem to fit nicely together. Also included from Miami is more from COPE2, Aiko, ABOVE, JAZ, Anthony Lister x Eine, Pixel Pancho. Other walls from other parts of the world […]

Basel Week Miami ’11 / Streets: Dabs Myla

Street activity has definitely been strong during Art Basel Week Miami, and this is one of the things that sets it apart from the more prestigious original fair in Switzerland. While walking through the myriad of streets where murals were being put up, we passed by Aussie couple Dabs Myla as they painted this piece. The wall was sponsored by LRG and was almost completed by the time the sun went down yesterday. More photos after the jump…

Basel Week Miami ’11 / Streets: Remi/Rough for Graffuturism

We passed by the Kohn Compound yesterday as we strolled through the Wynwood District in Miami and came across Remi/Rough working on one of outer walls and gate. The UK-based street artist was prepping for the In Situ show put on by Graffuturism tonight featuring post-graffiti abstraction for those interested. Other artists we have featured before on AM who are on the roster include Matt W. Moore, Eric Haze, SheOne, Aaron De la Cruz, and Augustine Kofie. See the full list and more details/photos after […]

Streets: Shepard Fairey (Barracuda Wall) Los Angeles

Over the weekend, Shepard Fairey (featured) and the Obey crew continued their large scale projects by pasting over the famed Barracuda wall. Last time we saw Fairey working on this wall was late last year when he collaborated with  SABER (interviewed) on a dual rendering of the American Flag (covered). This time around, Fairey has decided to use his name and recognition as a way to highlight and bring attention to a political cause affecting Native Americans. This latest mural is actually a collaborative piece between Fairey […]

Streets: Conor Harrington – “Decline of the West”

Conor Harrington (interviewed), who has been on a roll with a steady spate of street murals, has uploaded photos of another piece he painted recently entitled Decline of the West. We would have to say that this has a rather nice placement, and although we aren’t sure where it is located, Conor has been spotted around London with this another recent collaboration with Ronzo. More photos after the jump…
