We are quite excited about this show. Make sure you check out the show if you are London this weekend 22 Wellington St. Opera Quarter Covent Garden WC2E 7DD More images after the jump.

Preview: Know Show @ Basel Week (Miami)

Mark Murphy from Murphy Design Fine Art Editions will be at Art Basel Miami again this year with his “KNOW” exhibit showcasing over 90 artists (many of which are well known to our readers).  The show will be at the Gen Art Vanguard Fair from December 4th – 9th.  Judging from last years show, we feel this is a great chance to own works from well known artists at an affordable price since the pieces are mainly 10′ x 10″ in size.  Look after the […]

Teaser: Jeff Soto x Modus Films x Arrested Motion

Here is a little teaser video for the project we are working on with the good people at Modus Films. It’s a mini-documentary on Jeff Soto and his first ever museum show. The exhibit is entitled “Turning in Circles” (teased) and will open on December 13th at the Riverside Art Museum. Stopped by yesterday to take a look at the installation – it will be epic. AM will have a preview for you in the next several days as well as more surprises.

Preview/Interviews: Travis Louie @ FUSE Gallery

Travis Louie has been hard at work with two shows opening this month – the first being at Merry Karnowsky Berlin (previewed) and the second being at the FUSE Gallery in New York. Fortunately, he still had some time to sit down and answer some questions for us and send us some preview pics for his “Strange Neighbors” show opening on November 29th at FUSE gallery. Check after the jump for the images as well as our interview where he talks about future collaborations, the […]

Youtube Live: David Choe, Sam Flores, Alex Pardee & Jeremy Fish

Sam Flores, David Choe, Jeremy Fish and Alex Pardee were invited by Youtube in conjuction with Upper Playground to do some live-painting on a “cube” as a “pre-show” to the YOUTUBE LIVE concert in San Francisco a several days ago.  The results were quite spectacular and unique.  Check the video above and photos after the jump.

Releases/Benefit: MOCA Ryden Silkscreen

Mark Ryden teamed up recently with MOCA to release a limited edition silkscreen print entitled “Silence.” The print measures 28 x 22 inches and is a signed and numbered edition of 50 with 10 Artist proofs. “Meticulously crafted, printed on finely handmade paper from Bhutan, and carefully dyed and aged, the work is completed by two embossings created in the final process—a beautifully hand-sculpted bee and the printer’s chops into the corners.” The print will put you back about $6000 and supposedly only about 20 […]

For Sale: Banksy Wall

A story came out today about a section of wall for sale on ebay that had a Banksy stencil on it from his times in Jamaica.  The wall is free … but the catch is you have to purchase a set of photographs (one of which seen below) that chronicle the “deconstruction” of the wall – starting bid 100K.  The photos are entitled “The Rock” taken by photographer Peter Dean Rickards of The Afflicted Yard, presumably the “owner” of the Banksy. So if you have […]

Aakash Nihalani

Recently saw the work of New York artist Aakash Nihilani and thought his simple concept was quite fresh and interesting. His work includes tape installations on the streets as well as canvas pieces. 17 Frost and Bose Pacia hosted an event today in Williamsburg, where you could meet Nihalani and perhaps see some of his impromptu tape work. If you missed this, his show “Extended” will be showing to the public next Saturday, the 29th. The gallery is located at 17 Frost Street (between Union […]

Preview: Kuksi & Rocha @ Joshua Liner Gallery

Opening shows tomorrow at Joshua Liner Gallery are two artists whose work couldn’t be more different, yet are interesting in their own way. In Gallery I, Kris Kuksi’s Imminent Utopia showcases his intricate mixed-media assemblages made from “model kits, injection-molded toy soldiers and animals, plastic skulls, knick-knack figurines, and mechanical parts.” The size and detail of some of these works have to be seen in person to be believed – AM will be bringing you opening pics, which should give you more of an idea […]

Preview: Travis Louie @ Merry Karnowsky (Berlin)

Travis Louie has a show opening in Berlin on November 22 entitled Inhuman Oddities at the Merry Karnowsky Gallery; also opening at the gallery is Kill Pixie’s Super Systems. It will be a busy November for Travis as he will be exhibiting in NY at the end of the month (but more on this later). Judging from the images of the paintings and the pre-sketches he sent us, this show will focus on his fantastical creatures (like the turnip head seen above) rather than his […]
