Thanks to The Lugagge Store Gallery in San Francisco, the other day we finally got a chance to check out up close and snap some exclusive shots of the Os Gemeos mural painted on top of their building at 1007 Market Street back in Sept 2013. This magnificent piece was commissioned by gallery and funded by the Graue Family Fund for Public Art, and was painted over a previous mural the Sao Paulo-based artists painted on the same spot back in 2003 – celebrating 10 years since […]

After stopping off in Venice for the opening of his latest solo show, Barry McGee (aka TWIST) appears to have continued his world travels abroad by heading down to Australia with long time friend and cohort Josh Lazcano (aka AMAZE).

The minimalism of the mural, with […]
AM has been keeping a watchful eye on Continental European shows featuring works by Barry McGee. Whenever the cashflow gods have been on our side, we’ve booked the necessary flights or trains to attend as well.

However, the last time McGee exhibited in the UK was […]

Although the installation is always different, the idea remains the same: an urban environment—complete with stores, streets and all—that reflects the artists’ idea of a hyper-real […]
Not sure when or where this went up, but it looks to be a pretty sick “tag-athon” of this particular wall. As you can see, it seems both SF legends Twist (Barry McGee) & Amaze were involved in this piece as reported by Upper Playground. For those who can’t get enough of McGee check out our coverage of his recent museum shows in Oakland and Bolinas. Discuss Barry McGee here.
