Recap: Coney Art Walls

After a close look at the creation of three murals (Eine, Miss Van, Maya Hayuk) for the Coney Art Walls, we now have an recap of the event for you to enjoy. Curated by Jeffrey Deitch at an empty lot on Coney Island at 1320 Bowery on the west side of Stillwell Avenue (open 7 days a week), 30 artists were invited in to paint among food vendors chosen by Smorgasburg. Highlights for us was something from Futura (seen above) mirroring some of his photography work, a […]

Recap: POW! WOW! Taiwan

Last week, the first POW! WOW! Taiwan wrapped up successfully as invited artists finished public works throughout the capital city of Taipei. With the main event based in Hawaii (see 2014), it looks like the crew behind this annual art retreat will be branching out to different parts of the world. Taipei’s version featured some familiar faces and some new talent, including some local artists. We have already shared photos of James Jean’s impressive wall and an associated show from Brendan Monroe & Evah Fan, […]

Openings: Skewville – “Amusement” @ White Walls

A couple weeks ago, White Walls in San Francisco opened a new show from the Brooklyn-based twin brother duo, Skewville (featured). Amusement features about 30 different pieces painted on a mix of wood canvases and found materials as well as sculptural works – all created in their trademark “urban playground” style. Some standouts include wooden boomboxes and a merry-go-round built from retro Apollo bikes. Take a look at all the photos below… Photo credit: Joe Russo Discuss Skewville here.

Brooklyn-based street duo, Skewville (featured), are making the trip to Cali for a solo showing and will be of course bringing along their signature kicks.

This time around (Saturday, January 14th), they will be traveling to San Francisco’s Shooting Gallery, where they will present a body of work (Playground Tactics) themed around the old school city playground, […]

Studio visits: Skewville

The twin brothers Ad Deville and Droo who make up Skewville first came to prominence around 1999, when their wooden sneakers became an ubiquitous sight hanging from New York power lines. Since then, they have continued to push the boundaries of street communications. AM was fortunate enough to visit their studio hidden in a basement in Bushwick, NY as they prepared for their upcoming show entitled Anti-Social Networking at the Black Book Gallery in Denver opening on October 7th. Ad Deville showed us the entire collection of […]

Openings: “Street Art Saved My Life” @ C.A.V.E. Gallery

Last Friday, the C.A.V.E. Gallery and Brooklyn Street Art in collaboration with Thinkspace presented an exhibit titled 39 Stories: Street Art Saved My Life. The exhibit featured 39 different artists including the likes of Anthony Lister, Futura, Judith Supine, Know Hope, Faile, and Swoon to many other names familiar to AM readers. The show was meant to display the current street art scene that’s taking place across New York and the surrounding areas. Although not all artists were born in that region, all of them […]

Streets: London Instagram Roundup

Again it’s been a busy couple of weeks for street art in London. AM was happy to catch sight of some new work by Mr Penfold, collaborating with Sweet Toof and a brilliant bandit style shutter with the prolific Malarky whose work seems to be going up everywhere. Either collaborating with Ronzo, Pop 187, Kata, Word to Mother and Vinnie Nylon, the streets seem to be taking on a bold and colourful make over with playful characters adorning the shutters and walls of Shoreditch. We also […]

Openings: Vandalog & M.A.N.Y – “Up Close & Personal”

AM recently attended a group exhibition (previewed) held by Vandalog and M.A.N.Y. in New York. The show Up Close & Personal was unique in the sense that it was not held outdoors or in a gallery, but in an actual apartment on the Upper West Side. The show was limited to viewing for less than a week, but less is more as art fans were escorted in small groups for an intimate viewing session of small works by Aiko, Chris Stain, Elbowtoe, Gaia, How & […]

Showing: Skewville – ‘Slow Your Roll’ @ High Roller Society

Slow Your Roll, the first UK solo show by Brooklyn art duo Skewville, launched last Friday at High Roller Society. AM took advantage of the East London gallery’s new Sunday opening hours to visit over the weekend in the calm of a non-preview atmosphere. On the way, we spotted one of Skewville’s recent outdoor pieces, featuring the painted and foam-stamped word “BEEF” aptly done on the shopfront shutter of a local butcher. Plenty of stamps were also in evidence along the Regent’s Canal towpath, at […]
