Our Streets: World Roundup feature returns this week with a summary of murals you may have missed out on. Our highlighted piece this time is this monster collaboration from REVOK and RIME of MSK fame for the Detroit Beautification Project. It almost makes AM want to take a trip to the much maligned Motor City to see all the walls for themselves, proof that the project is working. Other notable murals include work from: Jaz – France (source), Graphic Surgery (Poland), Remi/Rough (Melbourne), Dal East […]

Tomorrow in San Diego, Do Ho Suh’s Fallen Star finally opens at UCSD’s Jacobs Hall at the Jacobs School of Engineering. The project from the famed Korean sculptor, which is the 18th permanent sculpture commissioned by UCSD’s Stuart Collection, has been seven years in the making and was funded by $1.3 million in private donations. The stunning installation features a home that appears to have crash-landed on the seventh floor roof and is a awe-inspiring addition to Suh’s on-going exploration of themes around the idea of […]
One of the booths we quite enjoyed at Art Hong Kong was the Elms Lesters showing with Adam Neate (interviewed). As we have stated many times before like at his exhibition last October in the UK (covered), AM is quite enamored with the street turned contemporary artist’s dimensional paintings. Judging from the response from fair-goers, we weren’t the only ones who felt that way. Discuss Art HK here. Discuss Adam Neate here.
We have already directed your attention to two murals (here & here) which marked the passing of late Adam Yauch (MCA) of the Beastie Boys, and now we have another tribute to add to the mix. Shepard Fairey recently has put up several pieces around Los Angeles, utilizing a Glen E. Friedman photo, in remembrance of the music legend at a couple locations (Sunset at Las Palmas and another on Fairfax just south of Santa Monica Boulevard). RIP. Image via the artist & FRESHNGOOD.

Over the weekend, Known Gallery presented a solo exhibition by artist Augustine Kofie (featured). Titled Working An Angle, this new collection of artwork continues to show the great craftsmanship and style that Kofie continues to perfect. This is the first solo showing for the artist since 2009’s Vintage Futurism (covered) and it also marks his first solo presentation at Known. The show featured over 25 pieces on wood as well as a collection of prints which all featured the artist’s signature style which combines a […]
Earlier this month, we brought you a preview of uber-collector Selim Varol’s show at me Collectors Room Berlin where a portion of his treasured toys and artwork acquired through the years would be on display. The exhibition opened just this past weekend, and for those in the US celebrating Memorial Day, we thought a glimpse of his USA-themed wall would a good starter image for an update on the setup. Make sure you stop by to see for yourself if you are in the area as […]
If you remember, we previewed the Ron Mueck exhibition at Hauser & Wirth, London (Saville Row, South Gallery) last month. Those familiar with Mueck’s hyperrealist style and playful distortions of scale will know his work needs to be seen in person to be fully appreciated. The four-sculpture show closes on Saturday 26 May, so the terribly busy, the forgetful and the procrastinators still have a couple of days to check it out. Favourite pieces for AM are Still Life, a giant plucked chicken hanging by […]
Throughout the past year we’ve been liaising with British artist Nick Walker as he worked on a vandal theme with a Paris focus. From accompanying him on Paris rooftops to get some inspiration, to following the different steps of the creative process, it’s been a very exciting journey and we’re glad to be able to share some behind the scene pics. The Morning After Paris print will be a very limited edition, available in person only at Opera Gallery Paris on June 23rd at 2PM – […]
The ever elusive Banksy has recently updated his website with some new “indoor” work with pieces that seem destined for some gallery show, museum, or private collection. Also new were some confirmations of outdoor stencils that has popped up recently including the “child labor” piece that appeared in London a couple weeks ago as well as some work that hadn’t appeared on the interwebs yet. Discuss Banksy here.
