We cherish every opportunity to see Mark Ryden’s work, and when we heard that his new painting entitled “Awakening The Moon” was to be shown at Paul Kasmin’s booth at the Frieze Art Fair, we had to put this on our tick-list. Kasmin brought us a treat at Basel in Miami last year with the wonderful “Incarnation” and this new piece didn’t disappoint either. Check the wonderful details in some of our close up flicks after the jump.

For those of you who missed it, we have a photo summary of this year’s Beyond Eden Art Fair. We’ve highlighted certain aspects of the event already, but this will give you an overview of the type of art that was seen this year (like the Dabs Myla piece seen above). Over three thousand people attended the second annual fair that is the only one of it’s kind highlighting the so-called New Contemporary art movement, and hopefully next year, it will continue to grow and […]
We’re in London excited for the upcoming Moniker Art Fair on October 14th-17th (coinciding with Frieze Art Fair). It looks to be a rad event with many of the galleries that you’ve come to love on AM exhibiting like New Image Art, Carmichael Gallery, Black Rat Projects, CampBarbossa, Galleria Patricia Armocida and Anonymous Gallery. We caught the setup as the crews are busy setting up site specific installations. Steve “ESPO” Powers & Faith47 were on hand to create gorgeous murals on the outside of the […]
Shark Toof debuted his first ever solo show with Culver City’s LeBasse Projects at Beyond Eden this past weekend. The prolific street artist mounted a visual assault utilizing his array of signature imagery, including sharks, cigarette boxes, comics and monsters. Using materials such as wood, spray cans, boxes, found materials and books, the artist filled nearly the entire space with art work. One wall featuring giant panels of screen-printed swimming sharks over a collaged and painted background would have been even larger if not for […]
We at AM have been following Bumblebee’s work for a long time now and are now happy to provide coverage of his first ever solo exhibition. The buzzing and buzzed-about artist treated the Beyond Eden crowd to imagery of bees, children, environmental awareness and the joys of childhood, in an installation and collection of works that included sculpture and paintings. The colorful show was one of the top highlights of the entire fair and we are happy to hear that it completely sold out. See […]
The Frieze Art Fair is soon upon us. Occupying Team Gallery’s booth at Frieze will be a group show consisting of a few of their represented artists. Among them is Ryan McGinley, who will be showing photos from his most recent road trip, as well as more b&w studio portraits of models with exotic animals. AM readers might also be interested in Banks Violette, who will be showing his first large-scale, text-based installation. The piece seems to announce a impending apocalypse, so prepare yourselves. More […]
If you remember the last time we brought you a look at a Bumblebee installation, you know you are in for a treat this weekend at the Beyond Eden Art Fair (previewed). The Los Angeles-based street artist, best known for his sculptural works involving his namesake will also be showing a new body of work at the Carmichael Gallery booth.

Along with gallery booths, there will be many associated art events and activities. For example, the opening […]
Currently showing over in Denmark at this year’s Art Copenhagen is Dave White’s “Forgotten Alchemy”. The series is a little different from the signature sneaker paintings he is famous for, but you can definitely see his style come through with these gun renderings. The new body of work will also include sculptures and drawings. More images after the jump…
Our friend Amanda recently posted up an image of Andrew Hem’s (interviewed) sketchbooks, scattered gloriously about with pages open revealing this and that. In essence, these gouache “sketches” are mini-paintings and a selection will be available from LeBasse Projects at next month’s Art San Diego Contemporary Art Fair. As a whole, the work is a summary of Andrew’s many travels as he stops occasionally to paint a scene that impressed him for one reason or another. Via Erratic Phenomena. Discuss Andrew Hem here.
