It’s been a while since our last “World Tour” feature from Japan (here), so naturally, we were excited that Nick Walker (interviewed) dropped in on the land of the rising sun to do a little “street work” for his Japanese fans. Following up on his infamous “The Morning After” series (here and here), he visited locations in Tokyo and Osaka to do some “hits” with some long time favorites along with some new creations. In addition, he also participated in a live painting session where he […]

Our number one passion here at AM is art, but music certainly comes in a close second. The “I Gotta Feeling” video from the Black Eyed Peas melds together these two things we love. It’s awesome to know that there’s a director out there with a fine taste in art. In the music video, a couple of Nick Walker (interviewed) canvases adorn the walls and a nod is made to his “bicycle vandal” character, one of the works we saw in his “A Sequence of […]
AM was on hand for the opening of Nick Walker’s (interviewed) “A Sequence of Events” show and book launch at Black Rat Press. There was a great turnout to see the original images from the book, which was a retrospective of the past ten years of Nick’s and also included some new imagery. Nick was on hand to sign copies of the book for fans, many of whom had waited much of the day to score the two now sold-out prints released at the opening. […]

Last night, the Carmichael GalleryÂ in Hollywood pulled no punches with their all-star show, “Get Rich Quick!,” showcasing the strongest talents in the street and urban art genre. Some scorching hot pieces lined the gallery’s walls for the exhibition, including: a rare BanksyÂ canvas, a KAWS ad disruption, boxes and screen-printed collages fromÂ Faile, to originals by Barry McGeeÂ and Micallef and much more. Visiting the gallery was like seeing a modern day museum retrospective of the last five years in urban art. Truly amazing. AM has all the […]

Bristol vandal Nick Walker returns to Black Rat Press in London on May 28th to unveil his latest show “A Sequence of Events.” If Walker’s past shows are any indication of what we can expect, fans have a nice treat in store for them. With creative pieces that consistently hold their own against work from that other relatively famous artist from Bristol, AM is looking forward to seeing what Walker dreams up this time. The opening will also mark the release and signing for Walker’s […]
