Art Platform ’11: First Look

Late Friday afternoon, AM stopped by the vernissage for Art Platform’s debut in Los Angeles. The new event, which looks to become the preeminent art fair in the LA area, is the sister fair to New York’s annual Armory Show. Although it did not attract as many blue-chip galleries as the Big Apple’s version, it was nevertheless an impressive start and we look forward to following the growth and expansion of the event in years to come. Standouts for us include a mermaid drawing from […]

Previews: PULSE Los Angeles ’11 – David B. Smith

After previewing three booths (here, here, and here) that we are looking forward to later today at the PULSE art fair, we have one final suggestion for those attending. Head over to check out the offerings from David B. Smith as he will be bringing works from Kris Lewis, Gregory Euclide, and Paul Jacobsen. The expressive new works from Lewis, unique three-dimensional paintings from Euclide, and hyper-realistic renderings from Jacobsen should round out your fair-going experience nicely.

Art Focus: Korehiko Hino

This week’s Art Focus features the haunting works of Korehiko Hino. The Japanese painter is known for his portraits of characters in trance-like states with large unblinking eyes often superimposed on vibrant backgrounds. When viewing his paintings, one can’t help looking into the mesmerizing and disturbing gaze of his subject, engaging in a staring contest that can’t be won. For those in Asia, you might be able to catch his work this weekend at AHAF SEOUL 2011 in Korea or next week at Art Taipei […]

Vernissage TV was on hand to bring you a first look at the opening session in the video above. As an added […]

Art HK ’11: “HONG KONG Terry Richardson” @ Diesel

During the recent Art HK ’11, controversial photographer extraordinaire Terry Richardson presented a body of Asian themed work, aptly dubbed HONG KONG Terry Richardson, with clothing company Diesel. The selection of toned down, while still edgy portraits centered around celebrities native to the city of Hong Kong. A book by the same name, produced in conjunction with Ooi Botos and limited to 1000 copies, offers up Richardson’s entire catalog of photographs taken in Hong Kong during his travels there. More installation shots after the jump.

Art HK ’11 – Mizuma Gallery

Consistently showing some of the best talent Japan has to offer, Mizuma Gallery is always one of the first booths we hit up at major art fairs. Art Hong Kong was no different this year as they brought along some of the brightest stars in their roster including Ai Yamaguchi (above) and Masakatsu Sashie (previewed). Check the full list of the artists here and also some photos courtesy of Jasper Wong after the jump…

Highlights: ArtPadSF, San Francisco

San Francisco, last weekend, hosted a slew of fine art fairs around the city. One noteworthy fair was the inaugural edition of ArtPadSF (held at the legendary Phoenix Hotel in the Tenderloin), which focused mainly on Bay Area galleries that feature contemporary and emerging art. Each room of the hotel featured a different gallery’s display and the lounge played host to panel discussions on art. Some of the galleries that had a room at the fair included: White Walls, Gallery Anno Domani, 111 Minna, Spoke […]

Art HK ’11: Galerie Emmanuel Perrotin

As you knew from our teaser article, we were looking forward to the Emmanuel Perrotin booth at Art Hong Kong because of what KAWS had to offer.  But, turns out the gallery was showing many other artists from their roster including AM favorites like Takashi Murakami, Mr., Chiho Aoshima, and Aya Takano among many others. More photos courtesy of Jasper Wong (POW WOW) after the jump…

Art HK ’11 – James Jean @ Martha Otero

Also included in the display were more paintings, drawings, special limited editions, and a first look at his Rebus book (more on this later), which was also the title of his recent exhibition at the Los Angeles showspace. Take a look at more pics […]
