Streets / Basel Week Miami ’10: Gaia

It looks like Mr. Gaia is getting things started down in Miami with this piece on 14th Street. The hybrid owl-human-rabbit looks similar to a piece he did for All City Block Party recently and has been layered on top of some Dick Chicken and Shark Toof (you can see this better after the jump…)

Videos / Basel Week Miami ’10: Kaws Interview with Nowness

Kaws waxes philosphical in this new video from Nowness in their series of artist interviews for this year’s Art Basel.

He’ll also be signing as well at the OHWOW bookstore at Miami’s Standard Hotel on December 3rd for those interested. Discuss KAWS here.

We already brought you a look at the Wynwood Walls project from Shepard Fairey, but now comes more images (North Miami St. & 28th) as he and his posse continue their assault on Miami.

Studio Visits / Interviews: Greg Lamarche

Although we’ve been familiar with Greg Lamarche’s work for some time, it took seeing his installation at Scope NY 2010 (covered) for us to start to realize that there was definitely much more to his art than cutting and pasting paper. From his obsessive stockpiling of found and vintage papers to his keen ability to highlight specific or overlooked aspects of those materials, such as bar codes or patterns, Lamarche has a unique talent for collage and a clever approach to the medium that is […]

Teaser: Basel Week Miami ’10 – Barry McGee @ Ratio 3

Already a key player in exhibitions with OHWOW (teased) and Roberts & Tilton (teased) this coming Art Basel Week in Florida, Barry McGee will continue the all out assault on South Beach with a selection of new works for Ratio 3. One of the founding fathers of the Mission School art movement, the Bay Area street artist is known for his mix-matched “clusters”, incorporating figurative panels of his iconic characters with complimentary panels of geometric patterns and text-based pieces of his many pseudonyms used while […]

Openings: ‘Marks & Stencils’ pop-up gallery, London

Last Thursday, AM was in London’s Soho district to attend the opening of Marks & Stencils: the Pictures On Walls Christmas season pop-up gallery exhibition, which in previous years has gone by the name of Santa’s Ghetto. There was a great atmosphere at the event. No doubt this was partly assisted by the deceptively strong cocktails being served, which led us to yet again repeat our mistake of equating “sweet drink” with “harmless drink”. But that’s another story. The show harbours a selection of prints […]

Streets: Claudio Ethos (France)

The street surrealist of Sao Paolo, Claudio Ethos, (Brazil certainly is one the hotbeds for street artists isn’t it?) recently threw up this sick piece in what looks to be in Paris. Known for his intricate work and signature fluid characters, this piece certainly doesn’t disappoint.  Luckily for us, Vitostreet was on hand to document all the action. More views as well as in progress shots after the jump…

Overtime: Nov 21 – 28

Cai Guo-Qiang is commissioned by the Museum of Fine Art Houston (MFAH) to produce Odyssey, the largest gunpowder drawing he has made to date (10 by 162 feet) Adam Lindemann has a seven-story townhouse in Manhatten filled with blue-chip art. Richard Avedon’s “Dovima with the Elephants” set a record for the artist’s work at auction when it sold for $1,148,910 at Christie’s Paris last Saturday.  The photograph was purchased by Dior fashion house (Dovima is wearing a Dior dress designed by Yves Saint-Laurent). When young […]
