Openings: ROA – “Stop Over” @ Bodson-Emelinckx

After sharing some shots of ROA hard at work setting up his show in Brussels, it’s now time to check out the fruits of his labor. Stop Over at Bodson-Emelinckx Gallery opened to a packed house as the Belgium-based artist’s home country’s fans came out in force to support the street muralist. The showing featured multiple installations imitating a laboratory that are similar to what ROA has done in the past, but this latest iteration looked very refined and finished. Paintings on found objects were nestled […]

Openings: Faile – “Les BALLETS de FAILE” @ Lincoln Center

After behind the scenes look at both the studio space and tower installation by Faile leading up to their monumental collaboration with the New York City Ballet at the Lincoln Center, the anticipation for the opening night performance brought out some of the who’s who of the New York street & urban art scene. Our peers at Wooster Collective & Brooklyn Street Art joined notables such as Tomokazu Matsuyama, How & Nosm, Logan Hicks and Carlo McCormick in the celebration of art & dance brought […]

Openings: Remio – “Man in Transition” @ Guerrero Gallery

San Francisco’s Guerrero Gallery recently hosted a fresh new exhibition from Remio. Entitled Man In Transition, this new body of work (previewed) was a reminder of how fun art can be both indoors and out. Utilizing surfboards, hand cranked zines, installations and a variety of graff techniques, Remio showed his talents and was not shy about taking chances. From precise pen and ink drawings to loose and abstract faces that convey the emotion and mood at the moment of creation, Remio took on the task of filling […]

Openings: Rostarr – “Turbo Arena” @ Anonymous Gallery

Last week, New York artist Rostarr (featured) unveiled his latest body of work in Mexico City at Anonymous Gallery. This inspiring series of paintings entitled Turbo Arena draws from his hypnotic signature style that is a smooth mash-up of iconography, graphics & calligraphy. Ro took our breath away with a jaw dropping 80 foot installation that he hand painted all by his lonesome. This show is up through the end of March, so if you’re fortunate enough to be in Mexico City, do yourself a favor […]

Openings: David Choong Lee – “Organic Updates” @ 111 Minna

Last week, AM decided stroll by 111 Minna Gallery to check out David Choong Lee’s latest effort, Organic Updates (previewed), which features a series of large clusters consisting of wood panels of painting, graffiti and collage, that are arranged to give the work a massive organic feel. I forgot to ask if purchase comes with a diagram for installation (maybe David is willing to consult via Skype). Check out photos from opening night below… definitely recommended to view in person while it’s still up! Discuss […]

FAILE x New York City Ballet – “Faile Tower” @ Lincoln Center

It’s has been a long road leading up to this day for the FAILE camp, with Friday’s opening of Les Ballets De Faile. As we mentioned previously this week, the New York City Ballet came out swinging when they chose the the two to lead their first ever artist collaboration. Over the last 6 months, the Patricks and their band of loyal soldiers have created literally thousands of individually stacked ‘wooden block’ piece of artwork, inspired by both their own iconic imagery as well as the archives of the New York City […]

Openings: Andrew Schoultz – “Fall Out” @ Mark Moore Gallery

Just this Saturday night, the Mark Moore Gallery in Culver City hosted the newest solo show from Andrew Schoultz entitled Fall Out. As we have come to expect form the San Francisco-based painter, the showspace was transformed with a series of installations. Taking it a step further, these sculptural elements seem to interact closely with the Mission School stalwart’s imagery – like the cannon seemingly spewing gold onto his recent riffs on the American flag. Also present were some some familiar motifs including brick walls, kinetic patterns, illuminati […]
