Openings: Jab Strong Fierce (Street Fighter Tribute Show) @ Nucleus Gallery

AM stopped by Nucleus Gallery couple weekends ago to check out the art and festivities of the Street Fighter Tribute show. The video game inspired art certainly delighted the crowd, but just as entertaining were the events associated with the show like the cosplay contest and the street fighter playing tournament. Check out all the pics after the jump…

Openings: Banksy @ Andipa Gallery

Stop and get it fresh – Banksy at Andipa Gallery! This past weekend, Andipa held an exhibition of some elite secondary market canvases by the Bristol Bomber. From what we see, the show was filled with not only grade A images, but they were also in great shape/condition, which is uncommon considering many of his pieces were stenciled on “urban” materials. This is a rare chance for you to see such a diverse collection of Banksy’s work in one place.  So, if you’re in London, you should definitely make it a […]

Preview: Jose Parla – “Reading Through Seeing” @ Ooi Botos Gallery (Hong Kong)

José Parlá’s first solo exhibition in Hong Kong, “Reading Through Seeing,” (teased) opens on May 14th at Oos Botos Gallery in Hong Kong. In addition to his signature abstract calligraphic paintings and watercolors, the show also includes several of Parla’s beautiful Bizen-yaki pottery (featured) works. This latest series can be summed up in one word: stunning. The most color-rich and vibrant in recent memory, the works are most likely reflective of Parla’s positive expressions of Asia based on his “The New Grand Tour” cultural exchange […]
