Probably the show that AM is looking forward to most next month would be the Faile and Bast UK show at Lazarides opening February 12th. Both floors of the Greek Street location will be taken over by the Brooklyn duo and long-time collaborator Bast in what is promised to be an truly immersive installation with “80’s populist culture” as the stated source of inspiration (perhaps referenced in the title and logo for the show seen above). Also as a tease, proportedly there will be an […]

Papermonster is dropping a new Bast print today around noon (eastern time we assume) entitled “The Wig.” No details as the edition size or price yet, but there should be several variations of this release. Also, as we first announced here, look for an awesome show when Bast teams up with Faile for their show at Lazarides opening early next month. Discuss Bast here.
AM recently attended the festive opening of Jonathan LeVine Gallery’s summer group show, entitled Beach Blanket Bingo. Chilling and chatting by the inflatable palm oases with a cold Pabst Blue Ribbon was a fun way to appreciate works by the over thirty participating artists, including Matt Haber, Seonna Hong, Elbow Toe, Richard Colman and Ron English. Check out the images after the jump for a selection of our favorites.
Although BAST seems to be experimenting with a new technique for some pieces in “Beach Blanket Bingo” summer group show at Jonathan Levine Gallery (pics coming soon), nothing reminds us more of his genius then seeing some classic pieces in the streets.Â Looks like he’s in another group show in Paris next month, but for now, take a look at some of these photos that Sabeth718 took around Brooklyn of some new pasteups including the one above with the perfect placement.

Last night, the Carmichael GalleryÂ in Hollywood pulled no punches with their all-star show, “Get Rich Quick!,” showcasing the strongest talents in the street and urban art genre. Some scorching hot pieces lined the gallery’s walls for the exhibition, including: a rare BanksyÂ canvas, a KAWS ad disruption, boxes and screen-printed collages fromÂ Faile, to originals by Barry McGeeÂ and Micallef and much more. Visiting the gallery was like seeing a modern day museum retrospective of the last five years in urban art. Truly amazing. AM has all the […]
What do you get when you put some of the hottest names in urban art in a “secondary market” art show? You get a blazing showcase of heat that’s almost never seen this side of the pond.

Buy low, sell high… guess Steve Lazarides sees the recent economic downturnÂ as an opportunity to make some moves. The marquee urban art gallery from London has been busy in 2009. Last month Laz transformed their Greek street location into a shop with a more accessible price point and stocked it with plenty of quality artwork underÂ Â£5,000. Now Lazarides is making his move on the high end – a luxuriousÂ new flagship gallery, “Rathbone Place,” will be opening itsÂ doors onÂ May 15th. This newly renovated five story location […]
Spring is in full effect and art is blooming all around us. March has beenÂ another busy month and the staff atÂ AM picks some of the freshest stories of the month in this edition of Second Helpings. Get served after the jump.
The thing aboutÂ “Art Show” week (Armory, Art Basel, Art LA) is not only exposure to all the great art you can handle, but you also realize how small the art community is. Seeing big-named artists walking down the aisle and celebrities moving from booth to booth is not an uncommon occurrence. At the Armory Art Fair, we ran into Marsea Goldberg of LA’s New Image Art. Marsea told AMÂ that she was in town not only to check out Armory Week, but also to “catch up” […]
Who says the art market is having a down year? Not Lazaridesâ€¦ We’ve got a sneak peek of the UK urban juggernaut’s 2009 lineup and it seems to be bringing the gusto. With solos planned with exciting artists such as Ian Francis, Antony Micallef, Conor Harrington, Blu, Invader, Vhils, Bast, and some surprises yet to be named, it seems that Laz is bringing some Red Bull to turbo-charge the scene. For the US market, Laz saved a little surprise as well. The “Outsiders” group show […]
