The last time we saw Slinkachu, he was busy in a Grottaglie alleyway creating his largest work yet for the FAME Festival (covered).Â Well, looks like the photographer/street artist is back with a new release which he also created in Italy, this time the installation “was placed near the local fly-tipping area and dog pound – the high life indeed!”Â This latest print is available in either small or large formats, through Studiocromie and Andipa Gallery respectively. More detail and location shots after the jump.

With the tireless and industrious energy of one of his own robot subjects, Johnny “KMNDZ” Rodriguez opened a new show, alongside C3 and Akira, last weekend at San Francisco’s Shooting Gallery.Â Featuring a freshly painted mural and whole new body of work, this striking show depicts a foreboding future as viewed through the antiquated and dusty lens of a camera obscura. Â While KMNDZ’s robots search for their humanity, you might find your own at the Shooting Gallery, show runs till November 13th. More pictures […]
Coming to Baby Tattooville equipped with a blank canvas and some paint, Greg “Craola” Simkins treated BT attendees with the ultimate in “tabula rasa” art experience.Â Creating coats upon coats of background texture, Greg spent hours building the foundation of what will undoubtedly become another masterpiece.Â Expect to see the completed painting at his upcoming show “The Pearl Thief” opening November 3rd at Gallery 1988 (LA).Â Pictures after the jump.
NYC street artist Gaia, along with Angry Woebots, Deseo, Dia, Scribe and Mr. Jago will be featured in “Re-up”, a new group show opening tonight at Gallery 1988SF.Â Gaia was kind enough to send us some process pictures of the woodblock and screenprints that he’ll be exhibiting. “Rhetorics of Peace” (featured above) is one of four animal prints that consist of Gaia’s contribution. He told AM recently that “the Animals are all derived from either biblical references or simply existential considerations. But those sources serve […]
Saturday, October 10th saw the opening of the Stencil Art Show at White Walls in San Francisco.Â Featuring Shepard Fairey and Studio Number One protege Ernesto Yerena, the photo-realism of David Soukup, graffiti cum graphic design of Tes One (teased), Easter basket palette of Casey Gray and haunting alleys of Adam 5100‘s mind, the Stencil Art Show appears to have been a success.Â Reasonable asking prices have led to a well-selling show, a vital blueprint in today’s downtrodden but buyer friendly market.Â Detail and opening […]
On Saturday, Oct. 3rd, just an hour or so before the big KMNDZ reveal, Elizabeth a.k.a. Bloodbath Mcgrath held a reverse studio visit alongside Miss Mindy (more on that later) giving patrons an insight to her sculptural techniques. As an added bonus, Liz provided the Baby Tattooville guests with their own clay, allowing them to create their own personal mini works of art. Also on display were the hand cast cleavers that Liz so generously provided in every guest’s grab bag. More pictures after the […]
On the last Tuesday of September, AM visited 111 Minna Gallery for their monthly installment of Sketch Tuesdays.Â Originally held a once a year at Southern Exposure under the moniker “Moniker Drawing Rally”, the event has now grown to a monthly event featuring an ever changing cast of Bay Area artists.Â November’s installment of Sketch Tuesdays fell on the eve of 111 Minna‘s “Neighborhoods” show (opening/setup) and featured many of the “Neighborhoods” artists.Â In attendance were such SF luminaries as Mike Giant, Matt Furie, N8 […]

Amidst all the releases, events and activities that took place during Baby Tattooville ’09, the one event that really provided true insight into the technical and creative processes of the participating artists was the organized Reverse Studio Visits.Â For their visits, the artists (in this case Yoskay Yamamoto, Audrey Kawasaki, Greg “Craola” Simkins, Miss Mindy and Elizabeth McGrath) brought in-process works with them to BT ’09, spending an hour each painting and providing a behind the scenes peek at how they work in their studios.Â […]
