In the midst of the excitement from getting confirmation that there will be a Fame Festival this year, a video from last year’s event was recently released. Focusing mainly on Word to Mother and his contribution to the one of the best, if not the best street art festivals out there, the footage follows WTM as he works on various mural around the little Italian town and catches some of the work from other artists in the process. Entitled Madre, the short film is the […]
Peering into the ESPO creative process as it relates to his recent exhibition, Days (covered), which revolved around his practice of producing a single painting – metaltations – every single day as form of artistic meditation, comes a new video, aptly dubbed Days. The footage illuminates Steve Powers as a father and as an artist, focusing on the creation of the 100th daily painting created in succession. A noble accomplishment and a testament to the dedication to his craft, evidenced firsthand by the sheer amount […]
Finding time before his opening in Los Angeles tomorrow night, Hush’s (interviewed) hit up a wall with his multi-textured technique. The mural at De La Barracuda is consistent with his new body of work that plays with the idea of duality through a series of Twin paintings. On a busy Saturday night of art, make sure you make time to head over to New Image Art between 7-10pm.
While familiarizing himself firsthand with the local culture in preparation for the creation of his most recent The World Stage series of paintings, Kehinde Wiley was accompanied by filmmaker Dwayne R. Rodgers during his journey to Israel in July 2010. The experience resulted in The World Series: Israel exhibition (covered) currently on show at Roberts & Tilton through May, 29th. This documentary short film provides a rare glimpse into Wiley’s creative process, involving intimate street scenes from Jerusalem, Lod, and Tel Aviv and commentary from […]
Over the weekend, Shows & Tell Gallery in Toronto opened a two person exhibition, Double Rainbow Rainbow (previewed), a smart curatorial pairing of two woman that each play with color in distinct and effective ways. Known for her kaleidoscopic cut paper sculptures, Jen Stark was easily the standout with a trio of her signature mixed-media works meticulously crafted by hand, along with a series of her playful felt tip pen drawings. With this new body of sculptural work, the Miami-based artist mixed things up a […]
Granted the honor of inaugurating LeBasse Projects’ new Chinatown space with its first solo exhibition, Nate Frizzell (interviewed) will aim to kick things off in dramatic fashion with To Become Myself (teased), opening this Thursday, May 13th. Based around a series of charcoal drawings, the body of work will again serve as a major departure from the status quo, bravely mixing up technique in a manner similar to that of the landmark I Should Know Who I Am By Now (covered), which saw the Los […]
One of the people we connected with in Hawaii for the POW WOW event (covered) was videographer Mikey Inouye. It seemed him and his crew were everywhere at the same time documenting all the action. The fruits of their labor are now evident with this new video. In association with Hypebeast TV, this is the first in a three part series featuring footage of the setup, live painting, and interviews with the participants including founder Jasper Wong. If you like what you see, you can […]
To mirror the images we brought you a few days back of the Circle of Animals / Zodiac Heads still wrapped up, we can now bring you coverage of the impressive installation of Ai Weiwei’s massive bronze sculptures in all their larger than life glory. Delayed by two days due to the capture of Osama Bin Laden, Mayor Bloomberg was able to officially unveil the public art installation on a drizzly Wednesday morning, the ominous weather subtly underscoring the somber tone of the event as […]
We only caught of glimpse of noted “venture philanthropist” Eli Broad at the Art in the Streets opening a couple weeks ago, but apparently Morley Safer was able to spend more time time with him for the latest segment of 60 Minutes. The engaging interview touched on many topics including the self-made billionaire’s charitable goals and philosphies, his art collection, and the love-hate relationship the art community has with him.
