Openings: Ai Yamaguchi @ Robert & Tilton

We were wondering what the large wooden installation (previously posted) was that Ai Yamaguchi was working on for her Roberts & Tilton show. Well, the photo you see above is the mural inside which could only be accessed by climbing in the structure (“shoelessly” we might add). More photos of the opening after the jump.

Teaser: Faile @ Vauxhall, London

Looks like the Faile collective is working on something a little different for their upcoming show in London. They will be taking over an abandoned schoolhouse (seem to be a common Lazarides tactic nowadays) in Vauxhall for a ten-day project with the opening planned for November 7th. Their show, entitled “Lost the Glimmering Shadows” will be incorporating some Native American imagery along with their distinctive torn poster look. This image as well as the one after the jump show them hard at work…

Teaser: KAWS @ Gering & Lopez

Looks like KAWS has gone back to work after his successful Miami exhibit because we noticed a new painting on the Gering & Lopez KAWS exhibition page. This painting is entitled “Perils” and is a pretty large at 68″ x 86.”  Since it hasn’t appeared before, we believe this piece will be at the upcoming November exhibit in New York.   We can’t begin to imagine how much a painting of this size would command (or what they would price it at) considering we know […]

Preview: Shepard Fairey @ Irvine Contemporary

Continuing with our coverage of Shepard Fairey’s pending trip to DC, we now have the images that will be exhibited at the Regime Change Starts at Home show at the Irvine Contemporary Gallery.  Shepard will have 9 new paintings and collage on paper pieces for the exhibition.  Included is the LAST of three unique hand stenciled collaged portraits of Barack Obama’s campaign icon: “Hope”. The show opens October 18th  (6-9 pm) with an afterparty by invitation to follow (10-12 pm) with all 3 artists: Shepard […]

Openings: Travis Louie & Kris Kuksi @ Shooting Gallery

Travis Louie & Kris Kuksi’s show opened up last Saturday in San Fransciso at the Shooting Gallery (previously previewed). If you have ever observed people looking at their works in person, you will notice that the viewer gets closer and closer to the artwork as they try and get a better look at the details. This is a testament to all the time and hard work put into these pieces.   More photos after the jump.

Openings: Josh Keyes @ OKOK

Last night, the prodigal Josh Keyes returned to his home state of Washington and brought the heavy artillery. AM got the scoop from the completely SOLD-OUT show at OKOK Gallery in Seattle. With the anticipation and buzz growing since the show was announced, Josh did not fail to disappoint with a simply stunning show. As previously reported, the show revolved around the central themes of nature, totem poles, and the animals affected by the changes in the environment. Josh showcased 10 gorgeous paintings that varied […]

Openings: Melissa Haslam @ Cerasoli-LeBasse

Looks like an emerging artist that we have been following, Melissa Haslam, has landed a show in LA. She opened in a group show called “Blender” last night at the new combined Cerasoli-LeBasse Gallery in the artsy Culver City district. The new gallery is a merge between Project: Gallery and the Cerasoli Gallery (formerly The Lab 101) and hopefully will help this Australian artist have more exposure to U.S. collectors. Her paintings usually include fashionably dressed women in interesting situations that hint of perhaps a […]

Preview: Travis Louie & Kris Kuksi @ Shooting Gallery

One of our favorite artists, Travis Louie, is opening a three-person show tonight at the Shooting Gallery. Louie’s technique must be quite complicated as he is able to paint photorealistic images of his imaginary creatures. He will be sharing some of his “secrets” in a future feature with us, but in the meantime you can enjoy his paintings from this show after the jump. Sculptor extraordinaire Kris Kuksi will be one of the other artists exhibiting along with Louie. The intricacy of his work is […]

Openings: KMNDZ & Ekundayo @ Thinkspace

Judging from the crowd that showed up for the opening, KMNDZ & Ekundayo careers are going in an opposite direction when compared to the stock market right now.  Luckily we got there early and took some quick pics before it got too packed.  The two artists spent several days completely transforming Thinkspace and their hard work definitely paid off. Entering the gallery was like entering into their own little post-nuclear apocalyptic world. More pics after the jump.

Preview: Jose Parla @ Elms Lester

Today, Jose Parla officially opens his show at Elms Lester. AM has obtained an early look for you with photos from the preview (thanks to our friend Michael). To say that Parla’s signature calligraphic style has developed a strong following is an understatement. This artistic phenomenon is currently in the middle of a multi-country world tour, selling out shows at every stop, and his show in London was no exception. The entire show at Elms Lester – comprised of pieces that cost up to 225K […]
