We’re partial to a bit of D*Face (interviewed) in our lives here at AM, so when we heard that he was traveling to South America to get down to some good old fashioned street art as part of Dinamo’s internationally vibed ’9no Festival de Arte en la Calle’, held in the capital of Ecuador – Quito, we were naturally curious about what laid in store. Details seemed sketchy at best, and we wondered what may come of this trek halfway around the world. We wished him […]

Last night, AM attended the crowded opening of the Sea No Evil art show and charity auction. The group show hosted great works from many notables such as Shepard Fairey, Clayton Brothers, Dave Kinsey, Gary Baseman, Mark Dean Veca, Audrey Kawasaki, Amy Sol, Joe Ledbetter, Lola, Travis Louie and Kozyndan. As expected, the event was packed with fans of both the art and the ocean. Throughout the night, DJ Diabetic and Crystal Method pumped great music to keep the crowd jumping. Eager patrons hovered over […]

German/Sierra Leonean reggae singer Patrice recently released a music video featuring an iconic speaker sculpture by JR (examples here and here). Utilzing some stop motion animation, “Ain’t Got No (I Got Life)”, a cover of a song by Nina Simone, features the wheatpasted set of speakers in different configurations throughout the video. Look for more from the French street photographer later this year in London, Shanghai, and Miami but for now, enjoy this video. Discuss JR here.
Do you believe in global warming? If you remember, Banksy does, despite his tongue-in-cheek statement to the contrary. Now, we know Blu does too after this clever new piece in Berlin (another Berlin piece here) that shows that it’s only a matter of time before our cities are submerged. Another look after the jump….
Carmichael Gallery recently opened two shows at their Culver City gallery and although the artists use different mediums and subject matter, their work is both deeply rooted in the streets. M-City’s work was both mechanical in appearance and in physical attributes. It included works that included levers and pulleys. The machine-like works contained images of M-City’s futuristic black and white industrial factories and buildings that contain no signs of human life. Boogie’s work, in contrast, was all about the city and the people within it. […]
Last night, the PRISM gallery on the Sunset Strip hosted a group exhibition “Come As You Are” in conjunction with New Image Art and RVCA. Featuring an eclectic collection of artists across all genres, the show included Susanne Melanie Berry, Kelsey Brookes (featured), Richard Colman (interviewed), Dennis Hopper, Ryan McGinness, Cleon Peterson, Clare Rojas, Craig Stecyk, Deanna Templeton, Ed Templeton and a video by Cheryl Dunn of Dash Snow as well as the three artists below. In particular, we liked the pieces by Os Gemeos […]
The cool thing about the “Annual Summer Invitational” at Jonathan LeVine Gallery is that we get to see some fresh faces that haven’t had an opportunity to grace the gallery walls before. As mentioned earlier, this year’s lineup looks promising with many faces familiar to AM readers taking stage with brand new works. Artists such as Nicoletta Ceccoli (interviewed), Tran Nguyen, Alex McLeod, Andrew Hem (interviewed), Becca Midwood, Evol, Judith Supine, Lola (featured), Morgan Slade, Marco Mazzoni, Nate Frizzell (featured), Oliver Warden and Oscar de las Flores […]
Blu, whose stunning mural in Warsaw we recently pointed out, apparently was also in Berlin. The Italian street artist, who likes to work in large scale, put up a more simple piece, but no less poignant. With what looks like a representation of the Berlin Wall coming down, there also appears to be a wall of Euro’s that replaces it or is also about to fall, depending how you look at it. Is he referring to the unity of Europe (represented by the Euro) that […]
It looks like fashion photographer and art enthusiast Viktor Vauthier has visited the studio of Word to Mother (interviewed) to take some photos for an article on the p.o.p. The London-based artist talks about his upcoming show with StolenSpace in October as well as his involvement with the FAME Festival which we have been following here. More photos after the jump…
