Matzu and Joshua Liner Gallery were nice enough to invite AM for a sneak “peak” at Matzu’s full-gallery solo show, Glancing at the Twin Peaks, opening in NYC this Friday. Matzu and his helpers have been working around the clock to transform the space with paintings, murals and sculptures into one cohesive installation. And although the show was still a work in progress when we were there, from what we saw, it already looks to be a stunner. Check out our exclusive preview pics after […]
AM was on hand at the opening of SÃo Paulo at Scion Installation LA this past Saturday. The show was curated by Choque Cultural in association with Jonathan LeVine and features work from some of Brazil’s best: Calma, Carlos Dias, MZK, Ramon Martins, Silvana Mello, Speto, Titi Freak and ZezÃ£o. Normally a white-walled gallery space, Scion Installation LA was completely transformed by the artists, each adding their own unique touch of SÃo Paulo’s color, vibrancy, grittiness, and energy with work that had influences of street […]

Japanese pop art superstar Yoshitomo Nara opened his new eponymously titled solo show (teased) in NYC last night. Similar to his last several exhibitions, Nara collaborated with the design firm graf to construct a gallery installation, this time consisting of two tree-like, fairytale houses: one containing a mini studio space and the other filled with stuffed animals. Of course, the show also contained plenty of new drawings and paintings of Nara’s trademark petulant girls. And special for the opening, Japanese musical groups MAGO and Oorutaichi, […]
UK artist Hush’s latest solo show, “Hymn to beauty” (teased), kicks off on March 5th at Carmichael Gallery in LA. In between finishing up the body of work and nabbing 6 hours sleep over 3 days, Hush welcomed AM to his studio to take a look at the work in progress, where we did a little interview with him. This and a chance to enter a giveaway contest for a set of signed Hush stickers after the jump…
Fresh off his LA show last December (covered), Yoshitomo Nara will be opening an exhibition tomorrow night (6-8 pm) at the Marianne Boesky Gallery in New York. It sounds like a fantastic show as Nara will be showing new paintings and drawings as well as more large-scale sculptures with his collaborative group YNG. The structures are described as “two immense sculptures that recall stylized tannenbaums, with their roof shingling evoking exaggerated tree needles. Small cut-out windows and hanging lights punctuate the sculptures, providing them with […]
