Releases: James Jean x OVM Butterfly Collection

Earlier this week, we heralded the imminent release of James Jean’s (featured) Butterfly collection from his OVM line. It looks like his fans didn’t have to wait long as the entire selection of earrings, necklaces, rings, and bracelets have been made available as well as a matching scarf. With this continuing foray into fashion, the multi-talented Jean continues to push his artistic boundaries while maintaining the shapes, colors, imagery, and aesthetic to those familiar with his work.

Liu Bolin for Harper’s Bazaar

As we saw for ourselves when we spent some time with Liu Bolin in New York, his creative process is fascinating to say the least. It looks like we aren’t the only ones that feel that way as the Chinese photographer was recently commissioned by Harper’s Bazaar to work on a fashion shoot with them. The concept was to “camouflage” the designers of major fashion brands with his signature technique in photos where they were painted to blend into a background of their clothing. More photos […]

Rick Genest

As one of the early influences for the Low Brow Movement, AM is certainly no stranger to tattoo culture. We have covered tattoo artists in the past (Scott Campbell and Shawn Barber come to mind) as well as featured tattoos chosen by fans and inspired by their favorite artists. Despite all this, we were still taken aback by the strange beauty of Rick Genest who has turned his entire body into a piece of art. Genest, also known as Zombie Boy, first shot to fame […]

Release: Mark Dean Veca – The Hundreds Skate Deck & Shoe

Continuing his collaboration with The Hundreds, Mark Dean Veca (interviewed) will be releasing a skate deck and kicks (Johnson Mid) featuring his signature “Toile de Jouy” abstractions. The shoe’s pattern is based on the image above which is also chock full of pop references like Hank Williams, Franz Kline, Ed Ruscha’s Hollywood Sign, Lil’ Annie Fannie, and Green Eggs and Ham. There are more images of the shoes, skateboards, and art work after the jump for those interested. Also, for those in LA, Mark will […]

Teaser: “Sweet Streets II” @ Nucleus Gallery

This Saturday, Sept 11th, “Sweet Streets II” is set to open at the Nucleus Gallery in Alhambra. After a successful exhibition last year, the group show inspired by the Japanese streets makes its return with an even nicer lineup of artists including Tessar Lo, Dominique Fung, APAK, Adolie Day, Bwana Spoons, Kukula, Julie West, Mari Inukai, Stella Im Hultberg and Amy Sol. We think Amy’s work is a great match for this show as the heroines in her paintings always seem to be quite fashionable […]

Robert Longo x Bottega Veneta

In the ’80s, it was Robert Longo who originated the often-imitated (Apple iPod ads, anyone?) style of twisting, turning, and contorting action shots in his series Men in the Cities. Recently, Bottega Veneta came correct by hiring the artist to work on their ad campaign, instead of copying him. Longo’s photographs will appear in the Fall-Winter 2010/2011 marketing materials for the high-fashion label, continuing the recent trend of partnerships (Ryan McGinley, Aakash Nihalani, Eine, etc.) between artists and brands. More images and video from the […]

Collabo: Eine x Anya Hindmarch

Haven’t heard much from typographical street artist EINE since his show at Carmichael Gallery last July, but photos have come out that show his takeover of a Anya Hindmarch store in London. Eine recently collaborated with the popular British designer on a series of bags featuring his signature imagery. More images after the jump…

Update: Dan Baldwin Collaborations

The worlds of art and fashion design often collide, and it seems that Dan Baldwin’s (interviewed) multi-layered textures are soon to make it onto the clothing racks of London’s well-heeled fashionistas. Dan is no stranger to working in different mediums, and we think that his art fits pretty well on these silk linings and fabrics used in collaboration with British fashion designer Sara Berman on her upcoming 2010 autumn collection. Speaking of Baldwin’s artistic collaborations, Dan and Hush (interviewed) just released two super-limited edition prints from the recent […]

Aakash Nihalani x Sean John Pop Up Store

When Sean John opened up their pop-up store last weekend in Miami Beach, just in time for Super Bowl, it was with the artwork and design of Aakash Nihalani (who just opened his show at Carmichael Gallery). His classic colored geometric pieces could be seen in the front display as well used creatively throughout the store. Take a look after the jump…
