Streets: Yayoi Kusama – New York (Part I)

Yayoi Kusama has a long and complicated relationship with NYC. It started in 1957 when she moved out to the Big Apple and set out to make a name in the world of art. Spanning three decades, Kusama stayed until 1973 when she returned to her home country of Japan. Now with her recent retrospective at The Whitney Museum in full swing, Kusama has set to reclaim the city which was her second home. The first project we want to share with you is set up […]

It looks like Louis Vuitton is going all in with their new Infinitely Kusama collaborative line with Japanese avant-garde artist Yayoi Kusama.

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. More images after the jump…

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 […]
