David Choe – Choegal Origins

David Choe posted up some images on his blog that showed some of the creative process behind his Choegal figure that he recently released.

Teaser: Manifest HOPE Gallery – DC

Get ready Washington D.C., because January is going to be a busy month. Sure, the inauguration of President-elect Barack Obama is the big event. But if that isn’t enough, Manifest Hope will be stopping into town. After a momentous “hit and run” show in Denver during the week of the Democratic National Convention, the Manifest Hope Gallery will be making an appearance in Washington before the inauguration (Jan. 17th – 19th). The event will again highlight the artists behind the grass roots movement that helped propel […]

Conor Harrington @ The New Art Gallery Walsall

Conor Harrington recently posted up images of the monstrous 16 x 85 feet wall he painted for the “Outsiders” show at The New Art Gallery Walsall. This work, which took Conor only nine days to finish, includes images of soldiers, a bull, a duke, a bishop and a Blood and is aptly entitled “The Masters of the Universe.”  We don’t think it’s removable so we hope this is never painted over. More detailed photos after the jump.

Group Show @ Lazarides (Newcastle)

Banksy, or is it?

This sign with some Banksy imagery went up recently on Southwark Street in London. Speculation is that this is most likely just a publicity stunt by a company called The Bank. Although, here is another website with a similar logo… either a related company or perhaps there is still an outside chance this was taken by Banksy for an elaborate hoax. If this is indeed the start of a viral campaign by The Bank without Banksy’s cooperation, what do you think of companies subverting artists’ […]

Time PotY Cover: Obama by Shepard Fairey

On Friday, December 19th, TIME Magazine will release its “Person of the Year” issue. The winner… President Elect Barack Obama. He will get the cover of the magazine of course, but what image/photograph did Time use? They went to the person responsible for creating the most iconic portrait of Obama, Shepard Fairey, and asked if he would design the cover for the Person of the Year winner: Barack Obama. UPDATE: Time actually conducted a video interview with Shepard to dicuss the design process for the […]
