Preview/Interviews: Conor Harrington & Chloe Early – “Chasing Castles” @ Kinsey/DesForges Gallery

London based artists Conor Harrington and Chloe Early have a joint exhibition opening tomorrow, Saturday April 18th, at the influential Kinsey/DesForges gallery in Culver City. Both have shown work individually in group shows in the United States before, but “Chasing Castles” marks the first showing of a full body of work stateside for both artists. It is also the first time the pair’s work has been exhibited together. AM loves the multi-layered aesthetic of these talented artists, who took some time to answer a few […]

World Tour: Gary Baseman & Toby in Israel – Jerusalem Meat and Jesus’ Lamb

We stopped by our friend Gary Basman’s (interviewed) studio this week to chat and take a look on his preparations for his upcoming show  “Le Noche de La Fusion” at Corey Helford Gallery.  We were amazed by all the work and planning that will be going into making this one of the biggest art parties of the year, but more on that later. If you remember, Gary had a show in Israel this past January.  As per his usual custom, he brought along Toby to […]

Takashi Murakami – Inochi Exhibit @ Kaikai KiKi

It seems that some shows get all the glitz & glamour, and some shows just slide in & out without much ruckus. But one things for sure, high profile or not, Takashi Murakami and his Kaikai Kiki juggernaut do not half-step anything. Takashi’s latest show “Inochi” at Tokyo’s Kaikai KiKi Gallery ended last night, and AM has some pics from the land of the rising sun. More after the jump.

Preview: AIKO – “Love Monster” @ Joshua Liner

This Saturday, Joshua Liner will host the opening of “Love Monster,” Japanese-born Brooklyn-based artist Aiko’s first solo show with the gallery and her largest exhibition to date. Since parting ways with street art collective Faile in 2006, Aiko has been steadily developing as a solo artist, utilizing her substantial stencil, spraypaint and wheatpaste technique to create vibrant large-scale mixed media works. Her imagery is often sexually charged depictions of women culled from comics, pulp novel covers and even soft-core porn. However Aiko is able to […]

Openings: Draw @ Shooting Gallery SF

The mother of all drawing shows opened last weekend at the Shooting Gallery in San Francisco.  Featuring drawings from over 400 artists, the DRAW show is definitely one of the largest of its kind featuring artists we are all familiar with.  The exhibition started in 2006 at Fuse Gallery in NY, then to SXSW in 2007, and last year it was held at StolenSpace in London.  Make sure you stop by for a look if you are in the bay area but if you aren’t, […]

Studio Visits/Video: Judith Supine

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. Curious as to what he’s been up to, the multi-talented Dante Ross recently paid his friend a visit at his home studio where we got a good look at Supine’s recent work in progress. Some pieces look slated for the street and others for gallery shows. Either way, we’re interested […]

Openings: Tessar Lo – “Future Perfect” & Eric Fortune – “Lost in Light” @ LeBasse Projects

Tessar Lo made his solo exhibition debut this past Saturday with “Future Perfect” (previewed) at LeBasse Projects. Lo certainly impressed with this latest series of dream-like paintings which represents his exploration of “independence and hope for my personal history. Accepting my humanity is to understand that my existence partially relies on others. Though I’d want to know what it’s like to not rely on, need or respond to anyone but myself, no man is an island.” The show also features a notable installation from Lo […]

Those who attended the exhibition opening were treated to a wonderful new series of work and the chance to participate in Brandi’s “Easter Egg Hunt”. Throughout most of the night, plastic easter egg hunt eggs were placed in random places inside and outside of Thinkspace gallery. More photos after the jump…
