AM last showed you street artist Judith Supine’s colorful psychedelic imagery with the unveiling of his massive 18 x 16′ kinetic sculpture piece at the 15 Years of New Image Art show back in January.

Oos Botos Gallery in Hong Kong will be hosting “Reading Through Seeing,” JosÃ© ParlÃ¡’s first solo exhibition in Hong Kong.Â The show will open on May 14th and will be accompanied by a fully illustrated catalog with an essay by author and New York University scholar Alexandra Chang. At first glance, ParlÃ¡’s characteristic calligraphy meets graffiti, writing meets painting style seems like random strokes, albeit beautiful random strokes.Â But, closer examination and understanding of his work reveals that his paintings are a journal of his […]

New Image Art packed the house last night with their “American Realities” group show featuring the work of Barry McGee, working under the pseudonym Lydia Fong, his wife Clare Rojas, and their long-time friend and collaborator Andrew Jeffrey Wright.

Fans were excited that the normally private and reclusive McGee graciously chatted with and signed and sketched for […]

From the piercing eyes of his girls, to the fine balance of colors and […]
Check this video from theÂ spectacular Os Gemeos show at CCBB of Rio de Janerio. One of their signature “Box Head” installations was up in the show. The gorgeous box which measures 64 feet in volume is painted much like the classic Os Gemeos yellow characters.Â The interactive “Box Head” is suspended a few feet off the groundÂ toÂ encourageÂ theÂ museum goers toÂ “stick their head in” and wear the ginormous mask. Once inside, the viewer is transported to aÂ reflective dimension thatÂ resemblesÂ space. This effect is created through strategically placed lights along […]
