AM has been very impressed by Vhils’ first UK solo show “Scratching The Surface“, which recently opened at Lazarides Rathbone Place. A video has just been released which documents the artist’s process of installation in the gallery. It’s great to see more footage of Alexandre taking his hammer and chisel to the wall to carve out his exquisite portraits. See the video here. Discuss this show here. Discuss Vhils here.

AM swung by the Carmichael Gallery in West Hollywood today to meet the legendary UK street artist EINE. It was a pleasure meeting the man behind so many amazing street pieces the world over. We hung out for about 30 minutes, catching up with the artist, the staff and snapping some shots to share with you all – all after the jump…
Washington, D.C. got hit with a taste of urban art this past weekend thanks to the Irvine Contemporary, who held a group show and street/studio experience that featured artists: Shepard Fairey, Swoon, Dalek, Gaia, Imminent Disaster, Oliver Vernon, EVOL and Pisa 73. AMÂ got to tag along as these urban artists got together to create a show that was not only inside the gallery, but also along the back walls and alleys of some prime D.C. real estate. From the moment daybreak started on Thursday,Â EVOL, Pisa […]
Looks like the resourceful people over at Bristol Street Art have perhaps confirmed what has been suspected to be the location of Banksy’s surprise show – Bristol’s City Museum on Queen’s Road.Â They went as far as taking a picture through the small gap in the front doors.Â According to them, it looks like something Banksy did in 2007 in Glastonbury.Â Apparently a private viewingÂ “may”Â be held on the 12th of JuneÂ with a public viewing starting on the 13th of June (usual museum opening hours 10 […]
Last night AM attended the opening for Tomokazu Matsuyama’s (interviewed) “Glancing at Twin Peaks” (previewed) opening at Joshua Liner Gallery. The highly anticipated opening for Matzu’s NYC solo drew a packed house. Matzu’s distinctly unique pieces exhibited his signature contemporary flair on traditional subjects. This show continued his use of bold color palettes and contrasting “splashes” that make the pieces leap out at the audience. The installations amazed the audience, from a motorized spinning carousel to the stunning masterpiece that stole the show, “Wherever I […]
Matzu and Joshua Liner Gallery were nice enough to invite AM for a sneak “peak” at Matzu’s full-gallery solo show, Glancing at the Twin Peaks, opening in NYC this Friday. Matzu and his helpers have been working around the clock to transform the space with paintings, murals and sculptures into one cohesive installation. And although the show was still a work in progress when we were there, from what we saw, it already looks to be a stunner. Check out our exclusive preview pics after […]
One of the exhibitions we have been looking forward to this month is Mark Dean Veca’s “Paintings, Wall Drawings, and Collaborations” (teased) at the University Art Gallery at UC San Diego opening tomorrow, Jan 29th, 6 – 8:30 pm. His psychadelic and organic style is unique and has often been described as a mixture of pop culture imagery and 18th Century French “Toile de Jouy” style patterns. As relatively new fans of his, we were particularly interested in learning more about his work as this […]
Know Hope’s show (previewed) at Ad Hoc Art opened last weekend in NY to a pretty good crowd.Â As with most of his shows, the centerpiece was an installation, vividly bringing to life the imagery of his art.Â His well-known grappling and intertwined characters were again the stars in this body of work that seemed to have a seafaring theme. See more pics after the jump.
AM felt like a kid again when we saw the installation that Scope commissioned Miami-natives FriendsWithYou to envision for the lounge area of this yearsâ€™ fair. The young-at-heart artist/designer duo of Sam Borkson and Arturo Sandoval III created their own theme park, entitled Fun House, including an inflatable moon bounce playground, concessions stands, picnic tables and moreâ€”all in the likeness of their strange and wonderful characters. The installation also has a small gallery space, which offers attendees the rare opportunity to see FWYâ€™s fine art, […]
