Streets: ABOVE (Miami)

ABOVE (interviewed), whose giveaway on AM of his new PASSPORT book we just announced yesterday, is currently in Miami preparing for his upcoming show with White Walls at the SCOPE fair next month. If you remember, we already brought you a video of a more political mural he painted earlier this month, and he has stayed on working on more massive walls in preparation for Art Basel Week.

Videos: Above – “GIVE A WALL STREET BANKER…”

As you saw briefly in our recent update on the street festivities down in Miami, the Bay area-based ABOVE (interviewed) worked on a piece painted with his signature letters spelling out “GIVE A WALL ST. BANKER ENOUGH ROPE AND HE WILL HANG HIMSELF.” The mural, which also featured a man in a suit hanged in effigy along with the prolific street artist’s well known arrows, drew much attention and was featured on the local news. Enjoy the video (seen above) detailing the creative process that […]

Art Focus: Matthew Cox

This week, our Art Focus is on Philadelphia-based Matthew Cox, whose series of medical x-rays and embroidery recently caught our eyes. The Parsons and Otis trained artist has taken radiographs and stitched back in his imagined content partially over the skeletal elements leading to an intriguing new mesh of reality and the imaginary. For those interested, Embroidered X-Rays will be showing at the Packer/Schopf Gallery (Booth E-407) this year at PULSE in Miami, part of Art Basel Week. This particular series of works is just one […]

It looks like Wynwood Walls is kicking off things early this year because just after RETNA hit up his wall in Miami, ROA, Gaia, Nunca, HOW & NOSM, the Date Farmers, Faile, and Bast rolled into town to do their thing.

We’ll be checking out these murals in person once Art Basel Week Miami rolls around. *Original set of photos removed […]

Interview / Videos: Mark Jenkins for Beck’s Green Box Project

Washington DC-based artist Mark Jenkins, whose work we enjoyed back in March at the VOLTA fair during Armory Week, recently got involved with the Beck’s Green Box Project, an interesting application of new technology in the streets. The ambitious undertaking, which plans to showcase 1,000 projects by individuals over the next three years, utilizes the Beck’s Key App (also with Android support), which allows people to overlay their mobile devices / tablet computers over “green box” locations and see an augmented reality like 3D or […]
