Preview / Interviews: Roland Tamayo – “Whispers” @ G 1988 (SF)

Los Angeles-based artist and AM friend Roland Tamayo is set to open his part of a four-person show at Gallery 1988 in SF this Friday night, February 5th (7-10pm). The show entitled “Whispers” will also include Tin (interviewed), Kendra Binney, and May Ann Licudine. We took some time to talk with Roland to learn more about him and this new body of work. He tells us that he finds beauty in both nature and in what man can create leading to a juxtaposition of both […]

Interviews: Colin & Sas Christian

As mentioned in our preview (here & here), Colin & Sas Christian are set to open their show “Inner Space” this week at the Opera Gallery in London. Opening on February 4th, the show will feature Colin’s signature large scale anime-inspired sculptures and Sas’ paintings of luminous and iconic doe-eyed femme fatales as the US-based husband and wife duo return to their home country. Although they work in different mediums, one can see their work shares a common thread through their experiences together, as well […]

Interviews: Jeremy Geddes

We weren’t all too familiar with Jeremy Geddes’ work when we planned our coverage of the HK Venture show where Ashley Wood was the main draw for us. Seeing Geddes’ amazing visuals was definitely an eye-opener for us, so much so that we dedicated another article focusing in on his “cosmonaut” series of paintings. We caught up recently with the Melbourne-based artist for a question and answer session to learn more about him and his work. Full interview after the jump…

Dual Artist Interview: Hush x Dan Baldwin Collaboration Show @ Zero Cool Gallery

Our friends at Zero Cool gallery will be opening a new group show entitled “Don’t believe the Type” tonight in London that will feature four large scale collaboration paintings by Hush (interviewed) and Dan Baldwin (interviewed). The artists have not worked together in the past, but when AM heard that they would be pooling talents, we thought that this could be something special. Each started work on two pieces and when they finished their elements, the paintings were traded over for the other’s work. You […]

Interviews: Eric Nakamura – “Giant Robot Biennale” @ the Japanese American National Museum

The “Giant Robot Biennale – 15 Years” exhibition is set to open tomorrow at the Japanese American National Museum (JANM) in the heart of Little Tokyo in Los Angeles. We are looking forward to seeing what looks to be a fantastic show with artists such as David Choe, Jeff Soto (interviewed), James Jean (interviewed), Souther Salazar, kozyndan, Rob Sato, Jack Long and many more. Also, we had the opportunity to talk with the man behind it all – Eric Nakamura, one of the founders of […]

Openings / Interviews: Luc Price – “Jesus Help Me Find My Proper Place” @ Black Rat Press

Thursday night saw the opening of Luc Price’s “Jesus Help Me Find My Proper Place” show at The Black Rat Press gallery in London. Taking a major departure from his previous paintings and collages, and ditching his street art name of Cyclops, Luc has created a major installation for this show that offers an intimate glimpse into his provocative views on life, death and everything in between. Not a conventional or easy show by any means, but it’s good to see an artist pushing himself […]

Interviews / Preview: Esao Andrews – “Farewell Avery” @ Thinkspace Gallery

It’s been a while since Esao Andrews has had a major show and for his many fans, it’s long overdue. Since his showing with Roq La Rue last May, he’s been relatively off the grid – most likely getting ready for this year’s show “Farewell Avery” at Thinkspace, opening TONIGHT. It seems like it has been time well spent because this new body of work took our breath away. Even though we teased you with a peak at “The Conjoined Bell”, we had no idea […]

Interviews: Eric White

Following on from our recent studio visit with Eric White, we put some questions to the Brooklyn based painter ahead of his New York solo show “LP” at Sloan Fine Art. AM thought that the concept he had behind the work was captivating – reworked album covers that carried an influence for the artist before he got his first CD player back in 1983 – all in a 12 inch square format, of course. This is Eric’s first NYC solo since the phenomenal “Who Are […]

Interviews: Adam Neate – “A New Understanding” @ Elms Lesters

Adam Neate’s second solo show, “A New Understanding” will be opening at Elms Lesters this Friday, October 9th.  From what we have seen from this body of work, it looks like Neate is really continuing to blur the boundaries between painting and sculpture with his use of found materials such as cardboard, metal and perspex.  In our exclusive interview, Neate discusses his upcoming show, which has been in the making for over two years, plus much more.  Full interview and preview images after the jump….

Interviews / Preview: Antony Micallef – “Becoming Animal” @ Lazarides London

One of London’s most anticipated shows of the year is almost upon us with Antony Micallef’s “Becoming Animal” opening this week at Lazarides gallery’s Rathbone Place location. We certainly got excited after seeing the new image of one of the show pieces he recently put on his website here – and it certainly seemed to fit with the dark tone he described to us. This is the first solo outing from Micallef since his sell out show in Los Angeles, “Impure Idols,” in 2007 where […]
