We are sure you all remember this video from a while back where Paris Hilton endorses Anthony Lister’s (interviewed) work. The Australian artist, who opened a show last week, apparently had time to take that encounter and paint Hilton as a superhero. Turns out she loves it… Perhaps it will end up on her walls somehow?

Police Officer James Kenneally stated the department had Jan. 24 warrants alleging the Los Angeles artist tagged […]
AM checked out Baltimore street artist Chris Stain’s solo exhibition, “Up On The Roof Countin’ Pigeons,” (previewed) at the Carmichael Gallery. Stain absolutely knocked one out of the park with his transformation of the front gallery space into a New York City rooftop scene, which featured an amazing gargantuan-sized mural on one of the gallery’s walls. This setup was the perfect backdrop for Stain’s work which features scenes taken from the life of everyday inner-city Americans and the day-to-day struggles they encounter. In the rear […]
