Openings: Hush – “Hymn of Beauty” @ Carmichael Gallery

Hailing from the streets of Newcastle, UK artist Hush (interviewed) opened his show “Hymn of Beauty” at Carmichael Gallery last night.  From a stunningly textured mural to the hand-finished touches that made certain paintings overlap onto the wall, the presentation was top-notch.  Although he maintained his anonymity for photos (above), Hush was more than happy to engage fans in conversation and to discuss his work.  We especially liked the poem he painted on one of the walls from Charles Baudelaire that was used as the […]

Kaws – Original Fake x Medicom Bearbrick release @ Invincible Taiwan & Kawsone

It seems that KAWS mania is not only limited to the United States. KAWS’ latest vinyl toy, the Dissected Bearbrick, is a collaboration between Original Fake and Medicom.  This Bearbrick is designed after Kaws’ famous “Dissected Companion.” Like the fans that waited in line to see the opening of Kaws’ latest show at Honor Fraser (covered), fans in Asia (Tokyo & Taiwan) were also willing to camp out for a chance to purchase his rare products.  Last weekend, Taiwan’s premier fashion retailer Invincible sold all three sizes of the Bearbrick to Kaws’ zealous but […]

First glance at Armory Week: Scope Art Fair

AM kicked off its tour of New York’s Armory Week with a quick stop at Scope Art Fair. We’ll start off with some quick snaps of images that caught our eye that hopefully should inspire anyone near New York to come out and check out this week of amazing art. Enjoy all the photos after the jump.

Streets: “Watchmen” graffiti – Amped up fans or clever guerrilla marketing campaign?

The famous inquiry from the graphic novel turned movie “Watchmen” has been popping up in various cities throughout the world, including New York, Toronto, and across the pond in London. Having seen the “Who watches the watchmen?” tag scrawled on the sides of buildings, across payphones, and even on the back of a truck, we doubt that the writers received permission to put the work up. Is this the work of Comic-Con-going fans who can’t contain their excitement about tomorrow’s movie opening or is this […]

Shepard Fairey x Lance Armstrong Mural @ Nike’s Montalban

We went by the first few days to take some pictures to show you the day to day progress (after the jump), but this amazing mural will be officially unveiled on Saturday, March 7th at the conclusion of Lance Armstrong’s “Hollywood Ride”, a fundraiser to benefit the fight against cancer.

Openings: SÃo Paulo @ Scion Installation LA

The show was curated by Choque Cultural in association with Jonathan LeVine and features work from some of Brazil’s best: Calma, Carlos Dias, MZK, Ramon Martins, Silvana Mello, Speto, Titi Freak and Zezão. Normally a white-walled gallery space, Scion Installation LA was completely transformed by the artists, each adding their own unique touch of SÃo Paulo’s color, vibrancy, grittiness, and energy with work that had influences of street […]

On the streets: Faile vs. Supreme?

Looks like Faile has been working overtime in the streets of NYC at the expense of Supreme’s Spring ad campaign. Numerous ad posters were altered and remixed across the streets of New York. Faile replaced rocker Lou Reed’s “grill” with their infamous tiger face and also replaced the classic Supreme “box logo” on center of the shirt with the Collective’s catch phrase: “vanity”. Apparently this “remix” is a urban retaliation to Supreme’s annual guerrilla-spam ad campaigns. These campaigns allegedly consists of plastering numerous posters/pasters all […]
