Last night, AM stopped by the Tokyo branch of Galerie Perrotin to catch the opening of KAWS’ solo show, his first of two in Asia with Hong Kong coming up. Attended by his Japanese admirers (some from his Original-Fake days), international superfans, and the usual cast of locally-based artist friends, the opening showcased the Brooklyn-based artist’s newest pop culture character-based abstractions including a sweet Snoopy airplane shaped painting.Take a look at more photos from the opening reception below… Discuss this show here.

Tales Of Art gallery in Imola is currently presenting Postdigital, a group show with young international painters German Tellez, Milo Hartnoll, Paolo Psiko and Seppe De Meyere. The idea behind the show is showcase the possibilities and the charm of glitch art, as a practice of using digital or analog errors in visual art. Using a phenomenon common for computing and electronics industries when creating creating classic art form such as paintings on canvas, shows a very fresh, contemporary approach to constructing work. Sometimes applying […]
This Friday night (March 23rd) in Miami, Michael Kagan (featured) will be presenting a new body of work at Bill Brady in his first showing with the gallery. We Have Felt The Ground Shake will continue the Brooklyn-based artist’s loose renderings of Apollo astronauts who have touched down on the moon, a metaphor for man’s triumph over nature. Kagan further explains – “The paintings can work on their own or tell a story when shown together. The Mercury astronauts were the test pilots the ones that showed man can […]
For those needing another reason to travel to Hong Kong during this year’s Art Basel week, Osgemeos will be opening their first solo there at Lehmann Maupin starting March 26th.

Jonathan LeVine Projects recently closed a showing by John Jacobsmeyer, his debut solo with the Jersey City gallery. Entitled Great Feats and Defeats, the oil paintings from the New York-based artist depict a world of impossible mazes created from plywood, full struggling competitors. The pieces created on aluminum are strangely influenced by both Jacobsmeyer’s fascination with wood since childhood and from his love for gaming cultures. He explains – “If time were reversed and analog followed digital, if plywood clubhouses were made in order to […]
Taking place in the middle of March every year in Valencia is the Las Fallas Festival (or Festival of Fire) which has evolved from the feast day for St. Joseph, the patron saint of carpenters into a five day extravaganza. The highlight of the event is the creation and destruction of a fallas (or ninots), one of which this year was designed by Spanish artist Okuda. The 25m high sculptural piece entitled Universal Equilibrium features his signature vibrant color palette as well as his recognizable prismatic patterns. […]
Earlier this month, Thinkspace in Los Angeles presented all new works from Amy Sol (interviewed) entitled Bird of Flux. Working with a more muted palette and a predominately twilight setting, the Nevada-based artist was able to achieve a more introspective and melancholic feel to the show. Some of her elegant female characters were stylistically more elongated which carried over to her first exploration of sculptural forms. Take a look at the entire body of work here.

This Saturday night, March 24th, Richard Heller Gallery in Los Angeles will be opening a group show entitled Immersion.

Participating artists include Dan Attoe (seen above), Amy Bennett, Morgan Blair, Ryan Travis Christian, Hanna Hansdotter, Kajahl, Matthew Palladino, Super Future Kid, Christian Rex van Minnen, Mark […]
Following up on their show in 2014 (covered), the Miaz Brothers recently opened up their solo with Lazarides at their new Mayfair home, Lazinc Sackville. Entitled Anonymous, the 16 paintings on display are a continuation of the Italian duo’s Antimatter series, comprised of the out of focus portraits (and one sculpture) that they have become famous for. The haunting large-format canvases are created using a meticulous layering of spray paint and feature more experimental and bolder brush strokes this go around. Check out more photos of the exhibition below… Photos […]
