Teaser: D*Face – “Ludovico Aversion Therapy/All Your Dreams Belong To Us” @ Jonathan Levine

We know that a lot of folks are itching to see what the UK artist D*Face is going to serve up for his U.S. solo show, “Ludovico Aversion Therapy / All Your Dreams Belong To Us” at Jonathan Levine Gallery in NYC, and we’ve been just as eager to see the new work as anyone else. We stopped by D’s studio recently, and saw some of his preparations for the show. Read on for more details and pictures after the jump…

Streets/Video: El Mac – “Faces of Life” @ Fifty24SF

Besides working on the body of work for his solo show at Fifty24SF (covered), El Mac also took time to throw up some street pieces around SF. Here are some videos documenting some of the process for those who are interested. Part II and Part III after the jump…

Second Helpings: August 2009

Summer makes way for the Fall as August comes to a close. It was month packed with juicy stories for our readers. Just to make sure you don’t miss anything, AM brings you another edition of Second Helpings. Get served after the jump.

Studio Visits: Buff Monster

AM recently visited the studio of Buff Monster as he prepares for his solo show at Corey Helford Gallery opening next month. Buff will be unleashing 20 new works for his new solo show and we’re lucky enough to be able to debut a few of them, along with some great process shots from his studio that show off his time consuming and meticulous process. Much of his work begins as an Illustrator file on his computer before being printed out on paper which he […]

Streets: New Banksy – “Roller Zorro”

No official word from the Banksy camp yet, but some signs point to a new stencil from Mr. B up near the A40 (looks to be on top of the Great Western Studios building) featuring a Zorro figure holding a roller and the words “Live Fast Drive Slow” on the other side of the building. With so many fakes and copycats out there these days, one must be careful identifying alleged pieces. But, the size of the piece as well as the fact the this […]

Streets: Judith Supine x Williamsburg Bridge

A proper street artist requires good concepts, placement skills, and cojones (or the female equivalent). Judith Supine once again proves a master of all three especially in the latter set. Check out this mind-bending piece that Supine placed on top of the Willamsburg Bridge! More pics after the jump…

Art Focus: David MacDowell – “Appetite For Veruca”

After witnessing David MacDowell’s wit and humor as well his acrylic skills firsthand at Thinkspace a short while back, we fast became fans of his work. But, his ballsy take on Robert Williams‘ classic “Appetite For Destruction” at the Crazy4Cult 3D show really blew our mind. Notice the seamless blending of the world of Willy Wonka with arguably one of the most famous paintings of lowbrow art culture. See Williams’ original painting after the jump as well as hear in MacDowell’s own words how he […]

Streets: Imminent Disaster

We saw this image of an Imminent Disaster piece in progress today on Vandalog and were struck again by the complexity of her work and paper cutting skills. We first saw the intricacy of her work in person at the “Streets of Brooklyn” show in January and more recently at her dual show with Gaia at Ad Hoc Art, but nothing quite highlights the ephemerality of street art like seeing her delicate and time-consuming cutouts pasted on a decaying wall. Looking forward to her two-person […]

Streets: Invader – “Low Fidelity” @ Lazarides (Rathbone Place)

As expected, Invader took his time to visit buildings around the area with his tile work, coinciding with the opening of his solo at Lazarides (covered).  From the look of these new London pieces, he seems to be transitioning to some larger scale work, perhaps making it harder for “collectors” to take them off the streets.  Don’t know how long he is in town for or whether these went up before or after the opening but more and more seem to be popping up. More […]

Streets: Anthony Lister Mural

One of the nicest murals we’ve seen put up in a while comes from Sydney (277 Parramatta Rd to be exact), where Anthony Lister (interviewed) painted over this large billboard. Look for more Lister news to follow as he gets set to open a show at New Image Art in September. Another view as well as some other recent street pieces after the jump…
