Wrapping up our coverage of a phenomenal collaboration, AM got to spend some time with Os Gemeos & Futura on their day off after the completion of this impressive mural. The seven story mural consisted of the twins working on the “britches” and Futura utilizing his “point-men” to create the crazy shirt (all in conjunction with AKANYC and 12ozProphet with support from Nike and Montana Colors). It’s nothing short of amazing that his project took less than a week to complete. Everyone was finally able […]

After a great solo showing at LeBasse Projects, Yoskay Yamamoto (interviewed) is already hard at work for his coming show at Roq La Rue September 10th. Showing along side peer Edwin Ushiro (interviewed), Mr. Yamamoto is set to unleash a new set of images for Seattle’s finest.

In association with our blow by blow coverage of Shepard Fairey’s landmark “May Day” show that capped off a bittersweet goodbye to the now closed Deitch Projects, we thought it would be a good time to bring you a recap of the street action conducted by Shep and his industrious Obey crew. In addition to creating the high profile and massive mural at the corner of Houston & Bowery, Shep invited AM to tag along on two more “legal” endeavors. The first was the parking lot on the […]
After posting the mural project between Os Gemeos & Futura, we thought it wouldn’t be right to be in NYC and not stop by for an onsite AM look behind this project. The twins (Octavio & Gustavo) took an early crack at the legal mural space which is actually a Chelsea public school (P.S. 11) and is made possible by support from Nike, Montana Colors, and Allen Benedikt of 12oz Prophet & AKANYC. The ginormous figure measures over seven stories tall and from what you […]

AM brings you another jam packed edition of Second Helpings where we give you a look at the best stories of the month. Get served after the jump.
AM attended the opening of James “Dalek” Marshall’s (interviewed) latest show, “Chaos On The Edge Of Reason”, at the Hurley Space. The unique twist to this show was the interactive opportunity for fans to “compose” their own piece of Dalek art. Sold at $200 dollars a square feet, fans selected from either a 2×2, 3×3 or 4×4 feet section from the massive 37 foot canvas mural (previewed). The fun part was watching people slave over their decision on what area to cut and what colors to […]
Last night, AM attended the crowded opening of the Sea No Evil art show and charity auction. The group show hosted great works from many notables such as Shepard Fairey, Clayton Brothers, Dave Kinsey, Gary Baseman, Mark Dean Veca, Audrey Kawasaki, Amy Sol, Joe Ledbetter, Lola, Travis Louie and Kozyndan. As expected, the event was packed with fans of both the art and the ocean. Throughout the night, DJ Diabetic and Crystal Method pumped great music to keep the crowd jumping. Eager patrons hovered over […]
