We had an inkling this would be a strong show from Sam Flores when AM first hooked up last month for a creative process article for his upcoming show.Â As we saw more images leaked from his show entitled “Ego, Addiction, and Other Bedtime Stories,” opening this Saturday, May 2nd at Subliminal Projects, we became more and more excited about this body of work. Flores really pushed himself creating works for this exhibition.Â As he puts it: “this new show is a transformation.Â I wanted […]

Stop and get it fresh – Banksy at Andipa Gallery! This past weekend, Andipa held an exhibition of some elite secondary market canvases by the Bristol Bomber. From what we see, the show was filled with not only grade A images, but they wereÂ also inÂ great shape/condition, which is uncommon considering many of his pieces were stenciled on “urban” materials.Â This is a rareÂ chance for you to seeÂ such a diverse collection of Banksy’s work in one place.Â So, if you’re in London, you shouldÂ definitely make it a […]
Billed as the largest collection of Damien Hirst’s work ever exhibited, the show “Requiem” opened at Pinchuk Art Centre last Saturday, April 25th in Kiev, Ukraine. Hirst will be showing his retrospective of over 100 works dating from 1990 to 2008 at steel billionaire Victor Pinchuk’s namesake museum including not only the sculptures and installations that he is famous for, but also a collection of oil paintings, most of which have never been exhibited. For those unable to attend the show (probably all of you, […]
Here at AM, we simply can’t get enough of Brazilian street and urban art. The unique style, flair, vibrancy and most importantly its underlying grittiness create the perfect mind and retina stimulating combination.

We bring you two videos to temporarily satisfy your cravings. The first video is a peek inside the Brazilian urban art scene, exploring how Choque Cultural got […]
When we last talked to Scott Radke, he had just finished up his impressive commission piece for uber-collector Mark Parker.Â Looks like the next project he worked on were these “Sea Monkeys.”Â Radke usually creates his sculptures in batches and this time he has five available.Â More pics after the jump.
Last week when Aiko opened her dynamic show “Love Monster” (covered) at Joshua Liner Gallery, we noted a great installation created out of hand painted, stenciled and collaged spray paint and gallon paint cans.Â Since the doors opened, there have beenÂ numerousÂ inquiries and requests, butÂ these little gems were unfortunately not available for sale. Well, fans are now in luck because Aiko and the gallery have decided to make theseÂ hand created originals available. The price on these gems is a steal: the spray paint cans are $120 and […]
