Studio Visits: Nick Walker – ‘Entrophy’ @ Above Second (Hong Kong)

Ahead of his upcoming solo show Entrophy at Above Second Gallery in Hong Kong, we popped by the studio of Bristol-based Nick Walker (interviewed). For this new exhibition, the British street artist has been exploring new ideas and broadening the scope of his signature Gentleman Vandal series to more abstract imagery and new techniques playing with metal and sculpture. “A new element I am exploring with this show is ‘Numbers’ which I call the Smoke series. Originally I was inspired by Jasper Johns some time back and began to implement […]

Last week, AM had the opportunity to visit Heath Ceramics in San Francisco where Brendan Monroe (interviewed) was hard at work in the upstairs workshop on an upcoming show. Opening September 25th in the ceramics studio and store’s Bay Area Boiler Room, Morphology will reveal months of work the Oakland-based artist has put in testing his limits with larger pieces, carefully choosing glazes, and bringing to life (in three dimensions) concepts and elements of his visual language.

Studio Visits: Regan Rosburg

AM recently got the chance to visit Regan Rosburg in her Denver studio, complete with animal skeletons, insect carcasses and all the flora and fauna she uses to make her envirocentric creations. Her work is equal parts visual art to be enjoyed by the viewer and a call to action to conserve nature. She is best known for her ability to use resin to create depth and an uncanny feeling of life in suspension, giving her work an unusual mix of natural beauty and an ever present uneasiness that the […]

Studio Visits: Ryan McGinness x Hennessy – VS Cognac Bottle

It’s summertime and anticipation is growing for the next Hennessy VS cognac bottle with this year being the 250th anniversary for the world’s largest and most storied cognac maker.

In June, AM visited the New York-based artist’s studio for […]
