Continuing their long history of artists collaborations, Louis Vuitton’s latest project features the letters of Ben Eine. In particular, the Frence fashion house has been working on a series of scarves with street and graffiti artists (also see RETNA, Aiko, Os Gemeos) so the UK-based artist’s alphabet musings are just the latest iteration. Adorned with the words “Louis Vuitton” and “Great Adventures,” a reference to a how Eine feels every time he gets off a plane in a new city, the scarf was sold in […]
You may remember our recent article detailing Jeff Koons’ latest exhibition at the Gagosian in New York and despaired at the the thought of ever owning something from him. Now, love him or hate him, fans of the contemporary art giant’s sculptural works have a (relatively speaking) more affordable chance to own an editioned version of his Balloon Venus, in the form of a packaged collaboration with Dom Pérignon (also see their previous work with Warhol and David Lynch). Although unclear if this will be readily available, the […]

Kid Acne’s coming back through like an amber gambler with the re-release of his 2003 album Council Pop in a special 10 year anniversary edition (has it really been 10 years?). AM readers will probably be more familiar with the graffiti / street art side of Kid Acne’s creative output, but if you haven’t heard his Yorkshire infused hip hop, then this could be an ideal intro to the world of Eddy Fresh. Streets ahead of his debut Rap Traffic, Council Pop lacks some of the […]
David Choe, who will be releasing a print on Monday, also worked in Switzerland on an art and wine project called myFINBEC last year. The award winning winery, Cave Fin Bec, brought together eight graffiti artists to paint on large wooden canvases constructed from 84 wine crates. These were then dismantled into their individual parts and filled with six bottles of wine with the artwork adorning each one. Customers who buy these bottles will also own one section of the original painting. Take a look […]
