One of the shows we are looking forward to at the end of 2008 is Amy Sol’s “smoke & water” at Mondo Bizzarro Gallery.Â Some new images have surfaced besides one that we previously posted; one of which is seen on the show card above.Â The use of the tsunami theme is quite interesting as Amy rarely paints any of her characters in distress.Â Perhaps the girl and the swan-like character with the basket are there as rescuers… Also, something you should be aware of […]

Any sneakerheads out there will recognize Dave White’s oil paintings immediately.Â Perhaps generously described as the “Warhol of our generation” and well-known to the mainstream because his corporate collaborations with the likes of Nike & Coca Cola, it was actually his sneaker portraits that first attracted our attention.Â He has since moved on to other subjects such as Super Cars, Star Wars, and more recently Superhero paintings. Dave had a brief exhibition that ended last Sunday at the Kounter Kulture art fair produced by Opus […]
Shepard Fairey’s weekend in DC was very fruitful. He unveiled a new image:Â “VOTE“Â for Barack Obamaâ€™s Campaign, held aÂ dialogue at the Corcoran Museum, and showed at the Irvine Contemporary. AM got the breakdown on all the weekend events; including the exclusive after-party with DJ Diabetic himself. All the details, pictures and special surprise await after the jump.
Last night, AM visted Bed-Stuy vanguard Brooklynite Gallery for the opening of Time Machine, featuring work by artists Dain (Brooklyn) and Various and Gould (Berlin). Dain’s offerings consisted of his characteristic colorful images of 1920’s glamour girls. Although similar to his posters wheatpasted throughout NYC, the gallery work is more ellaborate than previously seen, with more layering and detail. Various and Gould collaborated on silkscreen prints on canvas, wood and paper of chimeras of celebrity facial features superimposed with stereotype words. These IDENTIKITS are meant […]
Judging from an early look at Kukula’s body of work for her upcoming show at Copronason, perhaps we will be seeing more of the softer side from her (which we first noticed in her works for her last solo at Thinkspace). Gone are the carved out organs, gimp suits, and tortured stuffed animals… Sounds like her work was quite morbid in the past…maybe it was, but if you have ever seen it in person, you would agree that no matter the subject material, she has […]
Andy Kehoe’s work initially caught our eye because of his masterful creation of desolate yet beautiful landscapes that capture the essence of human loneliness.Â Seeing his creatures in the isolated environments prompts us think of how tiny we really are compared to the vastness of nature.Â Â What makes his work even more interesting after the first glance is that his seemingly peaceful scenes are contrasted by the undertones of unease and violence in his characters and their actions. A three-person show called “The Wonder” opens […]
Last Saturday, Tim Biskupâ€™s show â€œO/S (Operating System)â€ opened at Addict Galerie in Paris (previously posted). Although no stranger to international travel, he appeared to be excited to be exhibiting in France when we talked to him at Baby Tattooville. The works turned out pretty amazing… continuing his “pixelated” style and pairing each painting with a custom pedestal. Priced at $6500-$15,500, we believe some of these are still available for purchase. Check out all the photos after the jump.
“The Wondermental” is the title of Lola’s upcoming show at Corey Helford Gallery on October 25th. The theme for the show is an “enchanting visual adventure about a young boy’s journey into the unknown.” Perhaps inspired by experiences as a mother, her paintings always feature children in various fairytale settings. To fully appreciate her shows, one must take in every painting as piece of a puzzle that when put together form an intricate story. Her attention to detail is amazing and inevitably our attention is […]
New York-based Japanese artist Aya Uekawa opens her latest show tonight at Chelsea’s Kravets Wehby, entitled It’s a Really Small World. What Uekawa can do with pattern and composition is truly amazing, making it no wonder that so many collectors are keeping a close eye on her career. The show is up until December 6, 2008. More pics of Uekawa’s work (from the gallery’s Web site), after the jump.
We were wondering what the large wooden installation (previously posted) was that Ai Yamaguchi was working on for her Roberts & Tilton show. Well, the photo you see above is the mural inside which could only be accessed by climbing in the structure (“shoelessly” we might add). More photos of the opening after the jump.
