Vuitton x Murakami Installation: Multicolore “Wrapped”

Winter is a time to see some of the most beautiful lights and installations designed to spread some holiday cheer and attract the eyes of would be shoppers. So, what’s so special about the new installation at Louis Vuitton’s NYC store on 5th Ave? One word: Multicolore. The world renowned Takashi Murakami has once again joined forces with Louis Vuitton to “wrap” the prominent flagship store with its signature “33 colors” for the holiday season! Following the successful collaboration between Murakami x Louis Vuitton earlier […]

Conor Harrington @ The New Art Gallery Walsall

Conor Harrington recently posted up images of the monstrous 16 x 85 feet wall he painted for the “Outsiders” show at The New Art Gallery Walsall. This work, which took Conor only nine days to finish, includes images of soldiers, a bull, a duke, a bishop and a Blood and is aptly entitled “The Masters of the Universe.”  We don’t think it’s removable so we hope this is never painted over. More detailed photos after the jump.

Setup: Yoshitomo Nara @ Blum and Poe

Gen Art Vanguard – Basel Party

Friday night ended with a bang at the OBEY x Z Trip party. But AM never told the tale of how this massive night of Basel parties started. The Gen Art Vanguard party was the Basel Friday night jumpoff where the “who’s who” of Miami were at. With heavy hitter sponsors such as FAGE, Citibank, and Bombay Sapphire footing the bill for drinks, Gen Art Vanguard was transformed into a true Miami mega event.  Stars and artists lined up to grab their VIP goodie bags while everyone else […]

FriendsWithYou Fun House @ Scope Miami

AM felt like a kid again when we saw the installation that Scope commissioned Miami-natives FriendsWithYou to envision for the lounge area of this years’ fair. The young-at-heart artist/designer duo of Sam Borkson and Arturo Sandoval III created their own theme park, entitled Fun House, including an inflatable moon bounce playground, concessions stands, picnic tables and more—all in the likeness of their strange and wonderful characters. The installation also has a small gallery space, which offers attendees the rare opportunity to see FWY’s fine art, […]
