Nicoletta’s show “By the Time You Are Real” (teased) opens this Saturday, December 13th at Richard Goodall Gallery in Manchestor, UK. She brings us seventeen wonderful new paintings to enjoy of which we obtained two more new images (thanks to Richard Goodall) since AM last talked about her. We sat down with the Merino based artist to chat a little about her influences, her illustration work, and her plans for 2009 among other things after the jump…

Although we have been enamored with Japanese artists for a while now, recently we have been increasingly interested in the Chinese art scene.Â It seems more and more intriguing artists are popping up on various sites…Â If you add to that, the fact that western artists seem to be showing more in Asia, the time seems ripe for the kind of crossover show that is opening this weekend in Seattle. “This is China” (teased), put together by Red Star Press at the location formerly known […]

Friday night ended with a bang at theÂ OBEY x Z Trip party. But AM never told the tale of howÂ this massive night of Basel parties started. The Gen Art Vanguard party was the BaselÂ Friday night jumpoff where the “who’s who” of Miami were at.

We were on site early Friday morning to make our rounds to shoot the artwork and massive party […]
