This past Saturday night, Subliminal Projects was decked out in the typographical patterns of House Industries. The Delaware based group showcased a new collection of prints and patterns and transformed the gallery into a graphical delight that showcased just what some simple fonts can do. AM was invited to the opening night rock out with the beats of DJ Diabetic, who kept the night bumping way past closing time. For those who don’t know the Los Angeles based Subliminal Projects; its an amazing space owned/curated […]

Rumors about a upcoming Banksy NYC show had slowed down the past few days… that was until Banksy dropped a bomb on us and updated his Web site announcing a “pop up” store in Greenwich Village. The store, which actually opened a few days ago, according to Wooster Collective, is called “The village pet store and charcoal grill“. The store contains no paintings or prints, but instead animatronic installations of strange and wonderful animals, the likes of which only Banksy could imagine. In addition, our […]
Masakatsu Sashie‘s show “Under Fluorescent Light” opened last Saturday at GR2 on the west side. As usual, his detailed spheres encompassing urban elements (buildings, vending machines, air conditioners, television sets) were quite eye-catching. It’s as if his so-called “orb paintings” shrunk the ingredients of city living into a compact package for consumption. Another interesting item for sale was this model kit of one of his “orb paintings” that was for sale. Limited 50 pieces and nicely priced at $100, these must have sold out. Hopefully […]
As a follow-up to ourÂ preview of Kaws’ “Saturated” show at Emmanuel Perrotin in Miami, we have some EXCLUSIVE pictures from our friend Kim, who generously shared with us a little opening night access!

It seems that Kim even got a little gift from the man himself! *Note that this show is “curated” by Pharrell andÂ were NOT commissions for theÂ trend-settingÂ producer. So, the works were available for sale to the general public, but as […]

Now there are plenty like the ones below… Such nice frames, more after the jump.
