Interviews/Preview: Hellovon – “Semblance” @ Cerasoli Gallery

UK based artist Von, or HelloVon as he has come to be known, is opening his show “Semblance” (previewed) at Cerasoli Gallery. The show has been on display since last weekend but the opening reception is this Saturday, September 19th at the Culver City gallery. We sat down with him to talk about his beautiful paintings which incorporate abstract and realistic elements at the same time lending to a dream-like, ethereal feel to this body of work. Questions & answers after the jump…

Interviews / Studio Visits: D*Face

D*Face is undoubtedly one of the most important artists working within the realms of street art today. His bold compositions and daring outdoor work continues to push the boundaries to new levels. AM was lucky to be invited into D’s studio to carry out an interview with the man himself, just ahead of him flying out to New York for his much anticipated solo show at Jonathan Levine Gallery “Ludovico Aversion Therapy / All Your Dreams Belong To Us” (teased). Taking part of it’s name […]

Studio Visits/Preview: Eric White – “LP” @ Sloan Fine Art

Last week, AM had the opportunity to drop by Eric White’s Brooklyn studio, and got a sneak peak of his space and some of the work for his upcoming exhibit “LP,” opening at Sloan Fine Art Sept. 12. As the title implies, the show will consist of White’s interpretations of classic album covers—more specifically, those from before 1983, the year when he got his first CD player. At first glance, the 12″ paintings often look exactly like record sleeves from Fleetwood Mac, Talking Heads, Pink […]

Streets: Blu in Milan

Looks like Italian street artist Blu has struck again, this time in Milan. It was only just recently that we saw him working in Grottaglie (here, here, and here) on his part for the FAME Festival this year. He apparently also had time to get this huge mural up giving bicylists a little chance for payback as you see them crush cars in their path. More images 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…
