AM recently attended the opening of Go East at Joshua Liner Gallery. This unique collaborative effort between the JL and the West Coast-based Mark Moore Gallery brought a synergy we were expecting with a fresh showcase of talented artists such as Chad Person, Feodor Voronov, Kenichi Yokono and Yoram Wolberger. With this exhibition, NYC attendees were able to sample the artistic tastes that have established Mark Moore as a key gallery in the Los Angeles art scene. Coming up very soon, Joshua Liner will return the favor and curate Go West at the MM showspace. […]

There’s a new contender for the biggest baddest art fair in New York City and it hails from overseas. The UK-based Frieze recently landed in the Big Apple and has incited excitement amongst the art community as it has brung many of the top tier galleries that didn’t participate at Armory Fair earlier this Spring (not to mention attracting great concurrent satellite fairs such as Nada & Pulse). Located on the scenic Randall’s Island, Frieze brings a new way of experiencing traditional art fairs which […]

Last week, we shared a video of Shepard Fairey (featured) as he prepared for his upcoming solo at Pace Prints (26th street location) opening on May 5th. What you may not have known was that this exhibition, Harmony & Discord, has been over a year in the making. Last year, Shepard spent over a month living in New York City during a residency at the renowned Brooklyn studio location of Pace (with many more trips between LA & NYC since then), joining an exclusive & esteemed group […]

SHEONE has been a busy little bee since his Paris collabo with Nick Walker. Traveling down to West Africa, the legendary writer worked on the ZION STREET PROJECT created by Wide Open Walls. SHEONE hit up 14 different villages in Gambia and beautified the structures that housed the residents living in the Ballabu Conservation Area. We look forward to seeing more as this project’s momentum continues to grow. Until then, check out the beautiful abstractions in the wild after the jump. Photography by Larry Makasutu.
This Friday, Ian Francis (featured) will be unveiling a new series of works entitled 10,000 Years From Now at London’s Lazarides (Rathbone Place). On our recent journey around the globe, we had the pleasure to trek up to Bristol to visit Ian’s studio. While there, we saw numerous pieces as they were in progress including ones that highlighted his seductive figures and mysterious landscapes tugging at the boundaries between the literal and the abstract. Watching Ian work is simply amazing. From carefully rendered studies comes […]
Recently at Jonathan LeVine in New York, Nicola Verlato opened up his solo exhibition entitled How The West Was Won alongside a solo from EVOL (covered). The series of new oil paintings from the Italian-born, Los Angeles-based artist show a talent for dramatic compositions and attention to detail that remind the viewer of old master paintings but remixed for modern time. The work follows a thematic tone that “refers to the culture clash between monotheism and polytheism throughout human history, a battle that the artist believes to […]
AM was fortunate enough to be able to trek down recently to Washington D.C. and catch Tomokazu Matsuyama’s (interviewed) solo exhibition at the Katzen Arts Center at the American University Museum. Aptly titled Thousand Regards, Matsu presented a balanced mix of works that varied from sculptures, paintings to installations to greet the guests visiting the museum. The well curated show displayed the many facets of the artist’s unique heritage and east meets west artistic approach. We caught his classic Kirin paintings and triptychs from his Running Deep […]
That no issue, and the comments about the disrespect to human life are ridiculous. First of all, there is almost 1% of Argon in our own atmosphere anyway, so we are pretty used to breath it, although in lower partial pressure. Second, inert gases are commonly used by deep divers. replica ray bans That’s got to become and it will who Mizzou is. That’s got to become our trademark.”. He’s done everything right since. He makes a mistake; he’s going to have to pay a […]
