One our stops in this past weekend’s art tour de force in NYC was Scott Campbell’s “If You Don’t Belong, Don’t Be Long”. Hailing from Miami, OHWOW Gallery created a hip Soho pop-up space that was new to AM eyes. The minty fresh location drew boatloads to the opening night festivities. Scott’s latest series of works definitely “wowed” us even more than anticipated than from our teaser and preview articles. Present were his signature cut-currency sculptures, intricate in design and often depicting objects, animals or slogans. […]
As spring kicks into high gear, so does artist, Scott Campbell, in preparation for his first solo in NYC later this month (teased) with OHWOW Gallery. AM has received a few more preview images to tantalize the senses, including some more of Scott’s insanely intricate money stacks along with a couple sculptural works.

Fans love his well thought out watercolors because the content often includes clever inside jokes and the fact that his work is so simply addictive. Take a look at this example from one of his most popular series, “Showdowns”, where he references pop culture, frequently from the movie or TV realm, and paints confrontations […]
Tattoo and now contemporary artist, Scott Campbell, opened his show at the Shop at Lazarides recently. “Always Almost There” once again highlights the laser etched technique that Campbell is famous for using stacks of dollar bills. His three dimensional works are wonderfully textured and complex, maybe because they are cut layer by later and then glued together. This is his first major exhibition in Europe and his debut show in London. Check out more images after the jump…
“Quiet Storm” opened this past Tuesday in Los Angeles at Gallery 1988. The four person show features new work from Krista Huot (Interviewed), Scott Campbell, ghost patrol and Roland Tamayo.
