Previews: “Ema Show” @ Hellion Gallery

On March 5th, Hellion Gallery’s Portland location will be opening a group exhibition featuring works created on small wooden plaques called “Ema” on which Shinto worshipers write their prayers or wishes. Most of the artists like Stella Im Hultberg (above) used the plaques to paint on but some went took a more novel sculptural approach. Participants include Brendan Monroe (US), Tadaomi Shibuya (Japan), Mary Iverson (US), Dave Macdowell (US), Anandine Urruty (France), Skinner (US), Eric Wert (US), Stella Im Hultberg (US), Maryanna Hoggatt (US), Josh Keyes (US), AJ […]

POW! WOW! ’15 / Streets: Esao Andrews & Aaron Horkey

Arguably one of the best murals created at this year’s POW! WOW! Hawaii (more coverage here) and one of the most unusual and interesting collaborations was the one by Esao Andrews and Aaron Horkey. None of the artists are really known for their mural skills or even large scale works, so it was interesting to watch their talents pulling off one of the most detailed and exceptional pieces created. Painting on the facade of Fresh Cafe in Kaka’ako, this was Esao’s second ever mural he’s worked on, while […]

Upcoming: Sarah Joncas & Camilla d’Errico – “Beauty in the Breakdown” @ Thinkspace Gallery

This Saturday night (February 28th), Thinkspace Gallery in Culver City will be hosting new work from Sarah Joncas (seen above) and Camilla d’Errico (seen below). Both artists create portraiture centered on female characters but their imagery tends to be quite different, which will give the joint show a nice contrasting look. Joncas’ paintings have a cinematic feel to them with with a sense of danger or unknown while d’Errico’s pieces are more surreal featuring her characters with saccharine charm interacting with their creature friends. Discuss Sarah Joncas […]

Showing: Finok – “O Enterro do Galo (The Burial of the Rooster)” @ Underdogs Gallery

Lisbon-based art platform Underdogs are continuing their program of collaborating with some of the world’s best young street and urban art talents. After recently working with Nunca on creating a mural and releasing a limited edition print (covered), they recently invited another Brazilian artist, Raphael Sagarra ‐ Finok. During his stay in Portuguese capital, the Sao Paolo-based artist painted a large mural, released his first limited edition lithograph, and opened a solo show on January 30th. Known for his flat imagery based on traditional elements and symbols from rich […]

Showing: Dave Kinsey – “Ashes to Ashes” @ Die Kunstagentin

With his current solo show now on view at Die Kunstagentin in Cologne, Germany, Dave Kinsey (featured) is continuing to explore a more abstract body of work, which was first introduced at his Detroit solo show back in October 2014 (covered). The pieces introduced through Ashes To Ashes are hugely influenced by the very basics, the essential elements of nature – water, dirt, rock, wood. Living in the Sierra Nevada mountains was the greatest inspiration for the artist, so this show “represents the personal impressions of his surroundings and his exploration of […]

Openings: Chris Berens & Patrick Kelly – “Nethermoor” & “Elusive Object” @ Roq La Rue

It has been four years since Chris Berens last showed solo at Roq La Rue.  Nethermoor, as the show is titled, is based on Michael Ende’s book, Die Unendliche Geschichte, or as many may know it, The Neverending Story.  The show opening however, wove a story all its own. Bad weather on the East coast and shipping issues caused havoc with the large exhibition, resulting in an open without the art. While Chris and his wife traveled from Amsterdam to be in attendance, the art […]

POW! WOW! ’15 / Streets: Ernest Zacharevic

While most artists were painting large murals at one location, Ernest Zacharevic contributed to POW! WOW! Hawaii (more coverage here) with several smaller interventions scattered around town, making visitors go on a real hunt for his work. Due to their nature, a few of them actually got buffed soon after their creation, but some of them stayed up waiting for people to discover them. The first piece he created was on the side of the bridge on Ala Moana Blvd at the beginning of Waikiki. The Lithuanian artist painted one of […]

Studio Visit: Matzu / Tomokazu Matsuyama – “Come with me” @ Gallery Wendi Norris

While preparing for his next big solo at Gallery Wendi Norris in San Francisco, Tomokazu Matsuyama (interviewed) recently hosted a studio visit from prolific art patron Swizz Beatz. While one of the pieces glimpsed in the New York-based artist’s workspace will end up in the record producer’s collection, the photos sent us reveals some of what Matzu has been working on for Come with me, his planned third solo with the Bay Area gallery. The exhibition opening on March 12th will feature paintings rendered in his signature aesthetic […]

Viewpoints / Recap: Dran – ‘Public Execution’ pop up show in Soho, London (Part II)

AM recently covered the opening and first week of the last show by Dran, which was hosted by Pictures On Walls and closed on Saturday 21 February. The uniqueness of Public Execution is that it was produced by the artist — bit by bit and in public view — over the course of its duration. A white space filled with spraypainted images of blank canvases on Day 1 evolved into a picture-rich multicoloured venue on Day 17, the grand finale. Some visitors have referred to […]
