Reminder: Ron English – “Status Factory” @ Frank M. Doyle Arts Pavilion (OCC)

Apparently, that mural Ron English (featured) was working on in Miami that we first brought you here is completed.  He ended with a cool extension of the wall piece onto the ground and with the placement of some of his “Camo Deer” figures. We first saw these pieces at his impressive “Status Factory” pop-up show in New York (covered) and for west coast fans of his work, make sure you stop by on Friday night (November 12th) as the show moves to the Frank M.

Interviews: Best|Ever

Best|Ever is the collective nom de guerre of Neil Edwards and Hadley Newman. The duo have been painting together for the last years and their photo-realistic spray-can work has sent ripples of excitement through us here at AM since we first witnessed their highly technical, but equally soulful work. Since presenting a showcase of their work in London earlier this year, they are now set to roll with a full-on solo show ‘Some Anatomies of Melancholy’, opening this Thursday, November 11th at Blackall Studios. We […]

Make sure you stop by if you are in San Francisco, you will fall in love with his works like […]

Preview: Alec Monopoly – “Alec Pass Go” Pop-up Show (NYC)

If you’ve spent any time in Los Angeles recently, you’ve seen the work of Alec Monopoly on such street surfaces as walls, utility boxes, and storefronts. The Monopoly Man, Twiggy, and Jack Nicholson have all been given a fresh life by the pop imagery of the prolific artist. Having made a significant mark on LA, Alec is bringing his talents to NYC this week, as Lebron would say. The artist channels the inspiration of being in the energetic cultural capital of the US and the […]

Studio Visits: Hush – “Found” with White Walls in New York

Hush (interviewed) has been locked away in a brand new, and as you can see from our picture above, pretty cavernous studio space preparing for his debut New York showing next month. “Found” is a new body of work building on the themes revealed at his sold-out exhibition in San Francisco with Shooting Gallery which was entitled “Passing Through”. AM called into the studio to see the work in progress earlier this month and we were impressed by the variance in scale of the work […]
