AM recently stopped by Thinkspace Gallery to check out Ekundayo’s (featured) latest show “Joy Today Jeopardy Tomorrow” which included this pretty sick mural install (seen above). We also had a chance to chat with the artist and followup on our studio visit by interviewing him in regards to this new body of work. Make sure you stop by to check out the show for yourself as this is the last week it will be up. Questions and answers after the jump…

Continuing with our coverage of this cool project, here’s an interview of Jeff Koons discussing his contribution in designing BMW’s M3 GT2 which raced recently in the 24 Hours of Le mans endurance race in France on June 13th. In the video he talks about his inspiration for the car, his peers and his family with Blast. Thanks to Hypebeast for the heads up. Discuss Jeff Koons here.
AM heard some sad news a couple of weeks ago that Burning Candy member Rowdy lost just about everything he owned in a fire that destroyed his home and painting studio. Rowdy had popped out of his flat in Bristol for a short time only to return and find the building engulfed in flames. In a moment, everything was gone – even one of his most prized possessions, this piece of sartorial elegance, the psychedelic church sweater seen in the picture above sent onto us […]
Brett Amory is an artist living and working in San Francisco. Amory graduated from the Academy of Arts in 2005 and has been showing his work all over the country since graduating. Amory first made his mark with the release of “Convergence”, a book that came out in 2006 that he put out with some friends whose names you may recognize (Mars-1, David Choong Lee, Damon Soule, Oliver Vernon, and Nome Edona). We sat down with him for an interview ahead of his show opening […]
After six months of studio time, and a week in the gallery prior to the opening installing his latest exhibition, Richard Colman opened his “Keep Out The Light” exhibition at New Image Art recently. We have been watching out for updates on how the show was coming together, as Colman’s shows are usually very installation heavy, and always exciting. Richard was pounding the tools until the early hours each day with the install, and the scale & intensity of this show certainly doesn’t disappoint – […]
French artist Zilda’s classically influenced street work are inspired by old books and works of the master painters and sculptors of the past. With such a wealth of material to refer to, it was somewhat surprising to find out that his work is all originally hand-painted. We talked about his history, technique, and future, among other things in our interview – all after the jump.
After a three year self-imposed hiatus from gallery shows (save a few group show contributions), Blaine Fontana made a comeback last weekend to the gallery scene with his solo show “The Golden Record” at Lebasse Projects in Los Angeles (our pics from the opening here). The exhibition looks to be a triumphal return for Fontana, and is based around humanity and its interface with the universe – the title referencing the information filled golden disks placed on board the Voyager II space craft launched in […]
Ana Bagayan should need no introduction to regular readers of AM, her stunning portraiture and contemporary figurative work being a regular feature here as her work continues to evolve with each and every new show. Entitled “Flutter”, Ana’s latest solo exhibition and her first body of work to be shown overseas, opens this weekend on Saturday 8th May at Rome’s Mondo Bizzaro Gallery. We caught up with Ana ahead of the opening. Read on for our interview and some further preview images after the jump.
Justseeds are one of the leading and most prolific artist-run radical art collectives at work today and count an amazing array of artists such as Swoon, Chris Stain, Kevin Caplicki, Meredith Stern and Josh Macphee among their members. AM recently caught up with many of the members of Justseeds and asked them a stack of questions about life creating and distributing a huge amount socially aware art and running one of the finest art resistance blogs in the world. Take some time out to check […]
Known as one of the best graffiti writers of all-time, SABER can also be described as a pioneer, legend, hero, Guinness World Records holder, and activist. Most of all though, he is an artist. An artist in the true sense of the word. One with keen and insightful observations and expressions of the world he lives in, the beauty that surrounds him, and the injustices that affect him. He has dedicated his entire adult life to the work he believes in, often at great risk […]
