We recently went by Muriel Guepin Gallery to check out French-born, Brooklyn-based artist Supakitch’s (featured) first major NYC exhibition, entitled Based on a True Story, which is up through the end of July. For the show, Supa presented mostly new paintings on canvas and works on handmade paper that featured his characteristic bold colors, fine line-work and music-inspired compositions. Although Supa’s stylized animal characters were still present in these pieces, they were more subtle and abstracted than usual. For example, one of the most eye-catching […]
Opening this Thursday June 9th at Brooklyn’s Muriel Guepin Gallery is Based on a True Story, a show featuring the work of Supakitch, along with Japanese artist Tamiko Kawata. As we’ve previously shown during our visit to his studio, Supa’s art is a colorful and energetic mix of street art, manga and hip-hop, which often focuses on the visual depiction of sound and music. He has shown extensively around the world, however, this is his first major NYC exhibition since relocating to Brooklyn, so we’re […]
AM caught up with French-born, Brooklyn-based artist Supakitch at his studio and got a sneak peek of a large new body of work slated for his solo show entitled I Was Born to Be Different, opening in mid-December at Galerie Elegance in Taiwan.

He easily switches between mediums, and even more impressive, mixes them with his love of DJ/hip-hop music and Japanese manga & anime, into his own coherent and unique aesthetic, […]
AM friends and super French art duo Supakitch and Koralie were recently in Gothenburg, Sweden, for the set-up and opening of “Kimono Fusion,” an exhibition of Japanese fashion mixed with pop, street and graffiti culture at the Varldskultur (World Culture) Museum. In addition to having work in the show, the two spent a few days creating an amazing mural, documented in the video above. Check it out, as well as some still shots from Kimono Fusion after the jump.
Dropping 1pm Eastern today at Pigment Editions is a sick new print by our Gallic homeboy Supakitch. The 18 x 24″ print, entitled “Supamoto,” is no giclee, ink-jet, rolled-out in mass quantities. Instead, it’s truly a love-labored collaboration between artist and master printer – using only the best homemade archival inks on nice thick paper. And the run is tiny, with only 20 of the limited yellow version, and a mere 2 of the super-limited special blue version. Check out more pics, including details of […]
