Openings: “A Decade of Faile” @ Lazarides Gallery

The final stop on AM’s Thursday-night London openings hop was the 10 year retrospective at Lazarides Rathbone Place gallery from one of our favourite street art teams – Faile. “A Decade of Faile” gave us a glimpse of just about every facet of the Brooklyn artists’ oeuvre – with the exception of the most recent wooden block pieces. Carved wooden prayer wheels (featured)- first seen at the last London Laz show (covered), and just begging to be spun, the much loved boxes, early works on reclaimed wood, […]

Sotheby’s Contemporary Evening and Day Art Auctions

Christie’s and Phillips de Pury have proven to have strong works available at their forthcoming auctions (check out our previews here and here). AM now examines Sotheby’s Contemporary Evening and Day Art Sales (February 10 – 11), which contain great pieces by some of our favorite artists, such as Feng Zhengjie, Yoshitomo Nara and Andy Warhol (above). We are happy to report that several of our favorite lots, included those by Frank Auerbach, Lucio Fontana and Andy Warhol, performed well, either within or above estimate, in the evening sale […]

Openings: Sas & Colin Christian – “Inner Space” @ Opera Gallery (London)

AM dropped into Colin and Sas Christian’s debut UK show opening last night at Opera Gallery’s London location. When we first saw the preview images, which we showed you here, from husband and wife Colin and Sas, we knew that this would be be a must see show. Both artists had taken things to another level in terms of the scale that they worked to – Sas going big on canvas and Colin going supersize with his sculptures, the largest of the pieces being around 9 […]

Update: Jin Young Yu

It’s been a while since AM sat down for a chat with Korean artist Jin Young Yu so we thought we would update you with some of her new work since then. You may have had some glimpses of these pieces from our coverage of the London Art Fair and the Aqua Art Fair during Basel Week Miami, but you can see a full set of pics after the jump…

Bumblebee Installation @ Thinkspace

If you remember, AM last hung out with Bumblebee last year, as he placed one of his signature phonebooth installations on the streets of LA. Well, he’s taken it a step further with this pretty cool installation in the front alcove of Thinkspace for the “A Cry For Help” show (covered). Take a look at some more additional photos after the jump…

Preview: Damien Hirst – “End of an Era” @ Gagosian Gallery (Madison Avenue)

On Jan. 30, Gagosian Gallery on Madison Avenue opens an exhibition containing works by the most famous and controversial contemporary art superstar of his generation. Attracting loud attention with everything he does, YBA leader Damien Hirst will bring over to the US’s shores new paintings and sculpture with the centerpiece being “End of an Era”, a severed bull’s head with golden horns and crowned with a solid gold disc. It is a classic Hirst formaldehyde sculpture that acts as a coda to his piece “The […]

Openings: Mark Jenkins & Aakash Nihalani @ Carmichael Gallery

Last week, important shows for two young artists, Mark Jenkins and Aakash Nihalani opened jointly at the Carmichael Gallery (their last show before moving to the new Culver City location). Mark Jenkins brought many of his classics indoors such as the paper tape carousel horse and faceless hooded mannequins. In addition, the gallery setting allowed him to remix and play a little with his repertoire like with his usual multi-limbed bodies formed into a side table. This varied body of work, entitled “Meaning is Overrated” […]

Openings: London Art Fair

This year’s London Art Fair, held from January 13-17, attracted over 23,000 visitors and featured a wide variety of art to hold their attention. No matter how many art fairs we see or attend, we can never get enough of tremendous amount of paintings, sculptures, videos, installations, and other art on display – buffet style. Take a look at all the pics after the jump including fantastic new works from Jin Young Yu, whom we interviewed early last year.

Setup: Mark Jenkins – “Meaning is Overrated” & Aakash Nihalani – “On & Off (Often On)” @ Carmichael Gallery

It’s always interesting to see how street artists adapt their art to fit into a gallery setting, especially when they are so non-conventional (even for street art) like Mark Jenkins and Aakash Nihalani.  The duo will bring their “urban interventions” indoors tomorrow night at the Carmichael Gallery – Jenkins with “Meaning is Overrated” and Nihalani with “On & Off (Often On).” Take a look at more pics of the artists setting up after the jump…
