Preview/Interview: David B. Smith Gallery @ Art Basel Miami 2008

David B. Smith Gallery or the gallery formerly known as Limited Addiction is showcasing three of their artists this year at Art Basel (Miami) – Josh Keyes, Jason Thielke, and Gregory Euclide. The exhibit will be at the Aqua Wynwood this year starting November 4th. These artists all have their distinctive styles that we like: Keyes with his “cubism” and ecological themes, Thielke with his architectural interpretations of the human form, and Euclide with his multi-layered landscapes… David has kindly sent us some preview images from […]

It has been a wonderful few months for us since AM launched in September, so we would like to take this opportunity to wish everyone a happy Thanksgiving and thank our readers for your continued support.

Preview: Know Show @ Basel Week (Miami)

Mark Murphy from Murphy Design Fine Art Editions will be at Art Basel Miami again this year with his “KNOW” exhibit showcasing over 90 artists (many of which are well known to our readers).  The show will be at the Gen Art Vanguard Fair from December 4th – 9th.  Judging from last years show, we feel this is a great chance to own works from well known artists at an affordable price since the pieces are mainly 10′ x 10″ in size.  Look after the […]

Youtube Live: David Choe, Sam Flores, Alex Pardee & Jeremy Fish

Sam Flores, David Choe, Jeremy Fish and Alex Pardee were invited by Youtube in conjuction with Upper Playground to do some live-painting on a “cube” as a “pre-show” to the YOUTUBE LIVE concert in San Francisco a several days ago.  The results were quite spectacular and unique.  Check the video above and photos after the jump.

Openings: Kuksi & Rocha @ Joshua Liner Gallery

The frigid gusting wind on Manhattan’s west side did nothing to discourage an art-hungry crowd from attending Saturday evening’s Kris Kuksi and Pat Rocha openings at Joshua Liner Gallery. As mentioned in our preview, Kuksi’s work really needs to been seen in person to be believed. Each piece is obsessively constructed of hundreds upon hundreds of individual parts to form a frightening yet beautiful world of men and monsters. And with some works measuring over 10 feet in length, one could spend hours and hours […]

Preview/Interviews: Amy Sol @ Mondo Bizzarro

Amy Sol’s “Smoke & Water” opens at Mondo Bizzarro Gallery on December 6th in Italy. With her show still being about 2 weeks away, fans of Amy Sol’s work are on the edge of their seats. Luckily, Amy has been keeping us in the loop through her blog. We know that many of you can’t get enough of Amy so we asked her some questions. Here is an excerpt from the interview where she talks a little about one of her pieces: “there is a […]

Aakash Nihalani

Recently saw the work of New York artist Aakash Nihilani and thought his simple concept was quite fresh and interesting. His work includes tape installations on the streets as well as canvas pieces. 17 Frost and Bose Pacia hosted an event today in Williamsburg, where you could meet Nihalani and perhaps see some of his impromptu tape work. If you missed this, his show “Extended” will be showing to the public next Saturday, the 29th. The gallery is located at 17 Frost Street (between Union […]
