Earlier this month, Shepard Fairey came and visited the Big Apple to work on a few projects (more on that later). In between his indoor sessions, he invited AM to tag along while he worked to beautify some legal spots in Manhattan. Many of you may recognize his classic wheat paste-ups, but Mr. Obey and his assistant Nick have expanded his outdoor tool-set to stenciling. Much like his giant Mandala Ornament mural and he stenciled in Miami and his WeHo Library wall in Los Angeles, he’s […]

This Thursday, a very special art fundraiser will be held at Joshua Liner Gallery for our friend Tim Strazza who was unfortunately diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis. We are helping to sponsor a benefit event where all proceeds will go to his medical bills. Some of your favorite AM artists have generously donated works for the cause which will be available via a silent auction. Online absentee bids will be available, so please contact the gallery. The art community has banded together to show their support. […]
Last Thursday night, AM attended the launch party for the new Hennessy VS Cognac bottle designed by KAWS held at the New Museum. The fresh collaboration is actually the first in a series of individually numbered Hennessy bottles to be designed by well known artists. Many friend and peers of the artist were in attendance at the event including Erik Parker, Todd “REAS” James, HAZE Erik Foss, Eric Elms and Edison Chen and they all rocked to the beats of DJ Questlove as the fully catered […]
Last Thursday, AM attended the much anticipated unveiling of Flights of Genius by Steve “ESPO” Powers. Created in association with Joshua Liner Gallery and held at the corporate offices of Ogilvy & Mather (see previous project there), the marketing agency commissioned ESPO to create a series of works that lined each floor of the stairwell for the historic building with direct quotes by legendary founder David Ogilvy. We walked the entire building to catch the comedic and still relevant sayings which compliment ESPO’s witty artistic statements nicely. We […]
AM caught the opening recently of New England artist Daniel Danger (interviewed) at the Cotton Candy Machine in NY. The show featured works which nostalgically brought back memories of great movie scenes. His signature solitary structures and characters were centerpieces in a series of twilight-based compositions. As mentioned in our teaser, Daniel also brought out some print gems both old and new for some lucky attendees. Check it all out after the jump.
This past spring, comic artist Phil Noto exhibited a nice show at New York’s Bold Hype Gallery. The body of work entitled New Machines comprised of over thirty fresh works with Noto’s dose of 60s & 70s retro style & flare. With much of the subject matter focusing on his refined females in many familiar nostalgic surroundings, we found ourselves thoroughly enjoying his fine art work. Check it all out after the jump.
For the past month, AM has been working with Talenthouse to inspire art fans and design the next Deadmau5 head that the Grammy nominated DJ & Producer will be wearing on stage. The bad news is that the July 12th deadline to submit your design has past, but the good news is that the voting stage has begun. Check out all the designs created by your artistic peers through our interactive Facebook (here) or contest page (here) and go vote now as you only have until Tuesday to […]
At the beginning of this year, we brought you photos of the pop-up location of TOYKIO Gallery & café while they worked feverishly to get their main space set up for their official launch. Well, if the pop-up brought the bang, then this new location brings the boom! We just got word that Toykio finally opened their doors to their luxurious duplex location. The upstairs houses a beautiful café while downstairs you can see some art work from familiar names like Banksy, JR, Mark Ryden, Shepard Fairey,Ron English, Ricky Powell, Swoon, D*Face, and […]
This spring, when JR announced that his Ted Prize wish was to “Use Art to Turn the World Inside Out” he really wasn’t joking. Using people to participate is the key and the goal is to make this the world’s largest participatory art project and since this initiative began, portraits have reached citizens on almost every continent. For review, the concept is simple. Go to the Inside Out website (here), upload your portrait so JR can send you a printout for you to wheatpaste to […]
With the last week of Jeremy Fish’s (featured) Listen and Learn exhibition (covered) coming to a close at Joshua Liner Gallery, we bring you an inside look at Mr. Fish’s San Francisco studios when we visited the artist earlier this year as he was getting ready for the show. Remember this is the last week, if you haven’t made a stop to catch this show, do so before it closes this Saturday. Check out the full set taken for us by Joe Russo after the jump.
