Releases: David Choe – “Death Blossom” Print

Remember that show-stopper piece that David Choe painted in April for his solo show in China (covered)?  Apparently, he has decided to release a print of of the stunning “Death Blossom.”  It looks like this limited edition will be available for that Giant Robot Biennale 2 show at the Japanese American National Museum (JANM) next month that we told you about.

Streets: Banksy – “IKEA Punk”

Since we saw some alleged activity from him last month, looks like another Banksy has turned up in Croydon (Beddington Farm Road). As per usual now, no official confirmation but once again, there are signs that this is from the Bristol Bomber. For one, the “punk” is quite similar to the one seen at his recent Bristol Museum exhibition (covered).  The immaculate stenciling and biting humor are also Mr. B’s calling cards. More images after the jump…

One Year Anniversary of Being “Arrested”

We would like to thank all the artists that have let us into their world and shared their unique vision and talents. Most of all we would like to thank you, the readers, for supporting Arrested Motion.

Video: Jonathan Yeo – “Porn Equals Art”

One of the more interesting artists from Lazarides, Jonathan Yeo, just released a video featuring some of his recent work; his porn collages in particular. He discusses the origins of his technique, the process, and interesting “finishing touches” that he needs to find for each of his pieces. Besides the video, there are two other bits of news from Yeo. The first is that as of yesterday, a new series of 30 original works, entitled “Ode to Autumn” was made available at the Shop at […]
