After a first look at this year’s ComplexCon a couple days ago, we now will show you how the imagery of Takashi Murakami branded the event. Along with adding his work to all the adverts, media, and setup of the event, the Japanese artist also had a booth of his own displaying his artwork as well as had a massive amount of merchandise for sale in the gift shop. Top on the list for his fans were exclusive new sculptural editions, two “octopus DOBS”, a Modernica rocker chair, prints, […]

Over the weekend, AM stopped by the second annual ComplexCon at the Long Beach Convention Center, drawn in mainly by the infusion of Takashi Murakami’s design, art, and merchandise at the event. We’ll delve in deeper to see what Murakami (seen above) meant to the two-day celebration of art, streetwear, and hiphop in a later post but for now enjoy a first look at some of what you would have seen if had been one of the more than 50,000 that attended (a lot of […]
It’s always interesting to take a peek into the home of one of your favorite artists (also see the Rydens and Shepard Fairey), especially if they are collectors themselves. Architectural Digest recently stopped by the home of Brian Donnelly, better know as KAWS, and his wife and artist Julia Chiang to give us an intriguing look at their Brooklyn abode. The converted triangle-shaped industrial building features both living space as well as administrative offices and art storage, something Donnelly certainly needs judging by his art collection. Just from […]
Earlier today Banksy set up a street tea party in front of The Walled Off Hotel in Bethlehem, Palestine (covered), “celebrating” tomorrow’s 100 years anniversary of the Balfour Declaration. The infamous artist already addressed the important role of Great Britain in the ongoing Middle East conflict at the hotel’s museum, and couldn’t miss an opportunity to remind the world about it on this big day. Balfour Declaration was a public statement issued by the British government announcing support for the establishment of a “national home for the Jewish people” […]
The Lost Angels, a solo from Jacky Tsai, will be opening this Saturday (October 28th) at the Corey Helford Gallery in downtown Los Angeles. The exhibition will feature the Chinese artist’s work with lacquer, porcelain, mixed media painting and print, all featuring imagery that deals with East meets West themes and ideas. Seen here are pieces from his fantastic Superheroes series where we see various comic book characters placed in classic Chinese scenes, leading to a unexpected juxtaposition of worlds.
Recently in Munich, Positive-Propaganda collaborated with another artist in their ongoing street art project (covered) of “establishing contemporary and socio-political art in urban spaces.” Invited in by the non-profit, Skullphone created several pieces using his usual style targeting Coca Cola’s deceptive “greenwashing” ads that positions their high sugar content soft drinks as supposedly healthy in their “Light” products. Utilizing his signature pointillism technique, the American artist painted a triptych that included the brand’s distinctive bottle, the lips of the consumer, as well his signature image that is also […]
Earlier this month, DALeast (interviewed) traveled to Seattle to work along with 25 other artists on the Sodo Track mural project. The two-mile stretch spanning Fifth Avenue South from Royal Brougham Way to Spokane Street will eventually feature the work of 50 artists when finished with murals related by a common theme – motion. This ties in nicely with the work of the Chinese-born artist as his aesthetic features kinetic spray-painted coils of wire that almost always depict an animal, bird, or force of nature in action. […]
It’s been a while since we last shared some art-related videos with you in our Rewind feature so here are some that you may have missed in the last several months. Leading things off are a couple videos documenting the launch of Liu Bolin’s ready-to-wear collection at New York Fashion Week. The fashion collection inspired by the 12 photographs he created in the United States featuring his unique style of painting camouflaging himself into the scenery, something referenced by the body painting the models had […]
