This limited edition bottle is finally to be released this month. Check out a behind the scenes look at their recent visit to the Hennessy HQ in Cognac, France and also a rare glimpse into their elusive studio space below… There will also be a signed & numbered special edition bottle to be released […]

MSK members Pose and Revok (pictured above with gallerist Levine) recently visited New York City and immediately made their mark by being the current artists to work on the highly visible Bowery & Houston Mural (here & here). They also came into town to premiere respective new bodies of work at the Jonathan LeVine Gallery. The tandem exhibition (curated by Roger Gastman) was a breath of fresh air from the graffiti-based fine artists. Entitled Uphill Both Ways, the show’s name was inspired by the late graffiti artist & […]
Our friend Kid Zoom (aka Ian Strange) has been quietly working on the large scale project over the past two years and it’s almost time for him to unveil it. Entitled Suburban, this show is the culmination of Ian’s travels over the east coast of the US where he stops over in Ohio, Detroit, Alabama, New Jersey, New York and New Hampshire. Following in his ground breaking exhibition in Sydney’s Turbine Hall where he recreates his childhood home, then literally blows it up. This exhibition at […]
Prior to his Hampton’s SEAFOAM exhibtiion with Eric Firestone Gallery, Brooklyn-based artist Bäst visited Milan for a little bit of work with fashion heavyweight and icon Marc Jacobs. A long-time collaborator with the NYC fashion maven, Bäst trekked Italy to spread his own version of American street art across arguable one of the most notable fashion-forward cities in the world. Bäst then went outside-in to install a beautiful mural in the Marc Jacobs showroom. Discuss Bäst here.
Opening tomorrow night at Joshua Liner Gallery is a special group exhibition curated by artist Even Hecox. Entitled FOLKLORE, this show draws together artists from the United States, France and the United Kingdom. It aims to portray the simple and direct experience of visual enjoyment. Somewhat like a infectious summer pop song, the instantly catchy artwork presented is a selection of works from Andrew Paynter, Andy Jenkins, Andy Mueller, Benjamin Deberdt, Cody Hudson, Ed Templeton, Evan Hecox, Geoff McFetridge, Jay Nelson, Nathaniel Russell, Nigel Peake, […]
In part one of our behind the scenes coverage on the creative process of the new mural, we showed you the relentless work ethic of both Revok and POSE. It was interesting to see the first time two artists with different approaches were tasked with creating a work of art on display for the people of New York at the historic Bowery & Houston wall. Taking over six days, this piece was finally completed and it turned out wonderful as the text concept and end product reflected […]
Amongst ten artists around the world that got commissioned to present their vision for DKNY Artworks, the New York based How & Nosm took on the daunting task of working on the fashion giant’s home court. Entitled I Just Called To Say, the piece the brothers created helped highlight the iconic DKNY logo on a series of billboards on the corner of 48th Street & 7th Ave. It seems like How & Nosm are hitting their stride since creating an impressive mural at the iconic Bowery & […]
AM took some time to catch up with artists Revok and POSE (pictured above) as they were next to tackle that monster wall on the corner of Bowery & Houston. Following in the footsteps of many notable artists such as RETNA, Kenny Scharf, Barry McGee, Shepard Fairey, AIKO, Os Gemeos, JR, Keith Haring, CRASH and Faile, the two members of the MSK crew accepted this hefty project at the historic mural location, but took a little bit of a different approach. Over the course of six days, the […]
Last week, Marianne Boesky Gallery put together a hot (NSFW) group show just in time for the warm weather to hit New York City. Entitled Sunsets & Pussy, this show brings together three generations of artists – Ed Ruscha, Lucien Smith, Betty Tompkins and Piotr Uklański. Each artist contributed works that explored two classic themes of summer wonder. Some tongue in cheek and some a little more subtle, this showcase features some interesting and creative take on the creative theme. Check out a NSFW look below.
Last week, Eleven Rivington (11 Rivington Street location) unveiled a new body of work from Brooklyn-based artist Israel Lund. This intriguing exhibition showcases Lund’s interesting viewpoint and technique. His creative process often starts as an image of nothing, which he then repeatedly silkscreens and forces ink onto the null area. He then manipulates the image by enlarging, degrading or distorting it systematically thus eventually creating something out of nothing. Through this process, Lund extrapolates a unique yet repetitive aspect for each series he creates. Utilizing the CMYK colors, […]
