In addition to the multitudes of already established and successful street artists working Primary Flight this year, AM managed to score a couple hours with the ever mysterious TrustoCorp as the enigmatic entity bolted up their trusty brand of altered and hand painted street signage. Following a successful blanketing of New York City’s financial district, TrustoCorp trucked down to Miami leaving a trail of subversive signs in their wake. From what TrustoCorp told us, expect a pretty intense nationwide campaign to come to a city […]
While at this year’s Art Basel and Primary Flight, one of our goals here at AM was not just to bring you great on-site coverage of your favorite artists, but also to find, discover, and help promote the next batch of young and exciting artists ready to make a splash on the scene. AM is proud to present to you Tati Suarez, a 26 year old Miami artist, though soon to be Brooklynite, who caught our attention quietly painting in a tucked away corner of […]
Brazilian artist Herbert Baglione opened his latest solo show, “The Dark Wave” last night at San Francisco’s FIFTY24SF gallery. Though the artist was unable to attend, due to passport restrictions, Baglione certainly came correct with an overwhelming selection of original sketches (close to 300!) and nine medium to large sized paintings. The sketches, which are cash-and-carry till Christmas, have been taken out of Herbert’s personal sketchbooks and provide an insightful look at the processes and growth of this important Brazilian artist.

As Jeff Soto (covered) was busy creating his contribution to this year’s Primary Flight, AM favorite Ron English was busy working on a mural of his own. Another rendition of his classic “Guernica” tribute, Ron’s hand painted masterpiece features many of his most identifiable characters. As an added bonus, Ron put up some new, colorful wheatpastes, something we haven’t seen him do in quite a while. More pictures after the jump.
French photographer and street artist JR just announced the release today of his “Women are Heroes” book. In addition to following JR’s international exploits and wheatpastes, this book also focuses on his subjects – the women of Africa, Asia and South America, offering their personal testimonials to the public for the very first time. “Women are Heroes” is now available through Crakedz.

AM swung by Deitch Project’s Wynwood Walls early yesterday to check out the massive mural installation, still in progress. Upon arriving at the complex, we were greeted by Martha Cooper (interviewed) who was busy taking shots of Futura, Shepard Fairey (featured), Os Gemeos and Kenny Scharf as they were busy installing their massive murals. With additional pieces by Aiko, Barry McGee and Swoon (interviewed), expect Wynwood Walls to present an impressive showing later this evening. More pictures after the jump.

Over the course of four days last June in Bologna, these six artists collaborated, albeit separately, on the visual and musical aspects of this video. After the four days, the video was unveiled with live musical accompaniment. Expect […]
The ever evolving street artist Above (interviewed) has just released in his online store a stunning new print of his Valentines Day image from earlier this year.
