After sharing some in-progress shots of the murals going up at the Worcester Art Museum in Massachusetts in association with the Samurai! show (co-curated by Eric Nakamura, editor and founder of Giant Robot Magazine), we now have a look at the finished walls. Audrey Kawasaki took the high road painting one of her beauties on the second floor balcony of the Lancaster Lobby while Mari Inukai went underneath her, also making a play on the Japanese-themed exhibition with her imagery. To the side, Andrew Hem’s large piece looks down on visitors as they admire his choice of […]
This weekend, Berlin based artist Clemens Behr opens his first US solo exhibition at Mirus Gallery. Variety of (N)one will feature Behr’s trademark installation-based artworks following a month’s residency with the San Francisco space and will extensively feature materials gathered by the artist from the recent remodelling of the building which houses the gallery. Behr is widely known for his use of repurposed and found construction materials within his work, so we expect good things from this timely and site specific endeavour. The exhibition will […]
With the Samurai! show (co-curated by Eric Nakamura, editor and founder of Giant Robot Magazine) at the Worcester Art Museum in Massachusetts now open to the public, the artists invited to paint murals for the exhibition were able to start their efforts last week. One of the artists invited, Andrew Hem, has created large scale public art in the past, but the other two, Audrey Kawasaki and Mari Inukai were not as experienced with mural painting. Judging from these photos, the two ladies more than held their own. Photos credit: Worcester Museum. […]

Last week at New Image Art in Los Angeles, the versatile Patrick Martinez unveiled new mixed media works with a show entitled FORBIDDEN FRUIT. The fresh work combines his signature neon light technique with sculpture & painting, taking inspiration from things like hip hop and minority culture. Examples include guns mingling and appearing with common place items like fruits highlighted by neon lights, or imagery products are placed on the wall like strange hybrids – all giving insight into Martinez’s artistic vision.

For those who missed the MTV Movie Awards last weekend, Dabs Myla has sent us some images from the event. The Australian husband and wife duo took it to another level with the some of the branding of the show as well as creating on site installations, murals, and sculptural elements much like KAWS did for the VMA’s back in 2013 (covered). The set design was inspired by the artists’ travels and the cities they have visited, but the recreated city was meant to bring up memories of any major American […]

Like his previous projects, Strange has painted directly onto homes and hopes to “to create a body of work that transforms the Australian suburban home to unmask it’s […]
