Studio Visit: Mysterious Al

Mysterious Al has been making graf-ically inspired art for years, and has been someone that we have frequently seen in group shows around the globe. As one of the original members of the Finders Keepers set along with D*Face, PMH and Dave the Chimp, he was at the axis of the UK street art scene in the early 2000’s. Finders Keepers was a series of DIY / illegal street art exhibitions where artists were invited to exhibit their work on disused shop fronts and on […]

Video: Greg Simkins’ mural @ Mid-City Arts

Recently, Greg “Craola” Simkins (featured) spent some time at Mid-City Arts in Los Angeles working on a mural. Take a look at this timelapse footage as he painted some of his classic imagery including the pedestal, cloud, honeycomb, and elephant. His next project is curating the INLE group show (lineup) at Gallery 1988, an ode to his favorite book Watership Down and source for much of the symbology in his work. Video and more pics at Juxtapoz. Discuss Greg “Craola” Simkins here.

Streets: JR (Los Angeles) Part II

As we reported earlier, French street activist and photographer JR is continuing his assault on the walls of LA since starting with a mural in Venice last week.  LA weekly is following his progress in bringing his “The Wrinkles of the City” to Socal on their website (map) and this is the latest piece at Barracuda in Melrose. This newest project will lead in nicely to the TED Prize award show on March 2 (live streaming) where he will reveal his “wish.” Discuss JR here.

Happy Presidents’ Day

For those of you lucky enough to have today off work in the States, here is Ron English’s (featured) salute to the Presidents’ Day holiday. George Washington never looked better remixed with some comics and modified dollar bills.  For those of you who missed Ron’s recent solos in New York and the LA area, he’s scheduled for another show in Texas at the end of March at the International Museum of Arts and Sciences. Discuss Ron English here.

POW WOW ’11: Suitman

One of the highlights of our trip to Hawaii for POW WOW ’11 was spending some time with Young Kim. The performance artist, photographer, designer, creative director, and videographer has worked with many the major brands out there. His famous alterego – Suitman – is the physical representation of his cultural alienation and acceptance issues as he has lived and worked in many places since childhood. With a long line of people waiting to be photographed for one of his personal projects in the signature […]

Andy Warhol: “The Last Decade” @ Brooklyn Museum

Last Fall, AM caught an excellent exhibition at the Brooklyn Museum. The show entitled Andy Warhol: The Last Decade was an epic collection culled from the last 10 years of the famed artist’s illustrious career. The survey included almost 50 large scale works that demonstrated the newer styles which Andy Warhol incorporated into his already diverse repertoire in the latter part of his life. Not only did the pieces demonstrate the energy and vitality of his vision, it also displayed his artistic and business ventures […]

Streets: ROA (Mexico)

One of the hardest working street artists in the game, ROA recently made a special trip to Mexico where he took time to throw up a bunch of murals (you can see more on Unurth). Not only did he reprise his signature “stacked pile” of animals, but he also chose creatures we have never seen him use before. Also, for those lucky enough to be in the UK, he has already gotten up in East London as well as created a monster installation at Black […]
