AM was on hand at the opening of SÃo Paulo at Scion Installation LA this past Saturday. The show was curated by Choque Cultural in association with Jonathan LeVine and features work from some of Brazil’s best: Calma, Carlos Dias, MZK, Ramon Martins, Silvana Mello, Speto, Titi Freak and ZezÃ£o.

Partially via Boing Boing thru TWBE. Check out other music […]

“But one of the attributes of love, like art, is to bring harmony and order out of chaos, to introduce meaning and affect where before there was none, to give rhythmic variations, highs and lows to a landscape that was previously flat.” – Molly Haskell Before heading off to enjoy your Valentine’s Day festivities, take a moment to get into the spirit of love with some art centered around this day of expression, after the jump.

When AM broke the news of Shepard Fairey’s arrestÂ last week (here), we couldn’t help but ask the question: With warrants outstanding for weeks, how come Shepard was not arrested at City Hall while attending a very public unveiling with Boston Mayor Thomas Menino? We posed the question for you readers to ponder the motives*** and left the rest to Shep & his legal team. That is until Wooster Collective posted aÂ very revealing article (here)Â through the […]
We are sure you all remember this video from a while back where Paris Hilton endorses Anthony Lister’s (interviewed) work. The Australian artist, who opened a show last week, apparently had time to take that encounter and paint Hilton as a superhero. Turns out she loves it… Perhaps it will end up on her walls somehow? Discuss Anthony Lister here.
