Streets: London Instagram Roundup

Since the last AM London Instagram Roundup, quite a bit has being going on. First up, it was great to see Mobstr’s newly painted shutters with the words “Huh?” repeated in black and white to make up one giant “Huh?” Also, the side door to Stolen Space Gallery had a wonderful make over by Word to Mother, very nice. Sweet Toof is still being very active hitting up another roller piece with artist Smells, and also some other new work around from him too. There […]

Videos: “Madre” (Fame Festival 2010)

In the midst of the excitement from getting confirmation that there will be a Fame Festival this year, a video from last year’s event was recently released. Focusing mainly on Word to Mother and his contribution to the one of the best, if not the best street art festivals out there, the footage follows WTM as he works on various mural around the little Italian town and catches some of the work from other artists in the process. Entitled Madre, the short film is the […]

Showing: “Spectrum” @ Mallick Williams & Co.

Following-up on Hueless (covered), which consisted of all black and white art, Chelsea’s Mallick Williams & Co. recently opened a new exhibition entitled Spectrum, which is aptly named not only because of its array of vibrantly colorful works, but also because the group show features a wide range of contemporary painters, including Chor Boogie, Lu Gold, Kiji McCafferty, Erik Otto and Kate Pane. McCafferty, one of the standouts of the show, himself exemplifies the theme of variety: an emerging artist of Japanese and Irish descent […]

Openings / Streets: FAME Festival 2010

For the last two years, there’s only one place even the most half-hearted of street art fan should be in September and that’s the picturesque town of Grottaglie, in the foot of Italy, and this year is no exception as the town again provides the canvas for curator Angelo Milano’s FAME Festival. As with previous years, Angelo has invited a stylistically and geographically diverse selection of renowned and, at least for now, less recognized artists to decorate the walls of his hometown as they see […]

Fame Fest ’10: Word to Mother

When we referred to a look at Word to Mother (interviewed) studio several days ago, we mentioned he was in Italy working on his efforts for the Fame Festival. Well, here is a look now at the murals he put up while in Grottaglie. He also found time to work on an installation for the gallery show and some hand finished (with watercolor) screenprints. More pics after the jump…

Word to Mother in Studio

It looks like fashion photographer and art enthusiast Viktor Vauthier has visited the studio of Word to Mother (interviewed) to take some photos for an article on the p.o.p. The London-based artist talks about his upcoming show with StolenSpace in October as well as his involvement with the FAME Festival which we have been following here. More photos after the jump…

Video: Word to Mother

You may remember Word to Mother’s (interviewed) show at StolenSpace Gallery (covered) earlier this year.  Now comes a video from Andrew Telling at around that time period that gives us insight into young London-based artist’s creative process and workspace. Discuss Word to Mother here.

FAME Festival – A Tour Through the Monastery

After months of following the goings on at Italy’s FAME Fest (see our coverage here), AM decided to take a trip to Grottaglie to find out if all those pieces were really as incredible as they appeared. Let’s just say that we were far from disappointed. From the murals painted within the ancient monastery and on the walls around town to the fantastic private preview dinner and packed opening night reception showcasing work from all the artists, FAME is every street art fan’s dream come true.

FAME Festival: Ericailcane and Word to Mother (Part II)

We recently brought you news of Ericailcane (here) and Word to Mother (here) painting murals at FAME Festival (full coverage here). The artists have since stepped into the studio to create a fantastic selection of artwork. We are loving these little ceramic sculptures by Ericailcane (above). For everyone who gets excited when Erica’s anthropomorphic creatures leap into the three-dimensional, now is the time to start jumping up and down, as there look to be quite a few little monkeys running around Grottaglie. Word To Mother […]

FAME Festival – Word to Mother

UK’s Word to Mother (interviewed) has just finished a lovely mural at FAME Festival (our coverage here). Word’s soft colors and sketched lines fit really well into the environment the artists have been working in. This piece forms a nice continuation to his solo exhibition, “Young Mind, Old Soul,” at Fifty24SF (covered) earlier in the year. See a more detailed shot of the figure to the right after the jump.
