Famed street photographer JR opened his show in London last Friday. Much anticipation had built up over the last week because of the large installations he had put up in Soho (teased previously). We had wondered how his art would translate into the gallery setting, but it looks as though he was able to maintain the “feel” of his work quite nicely.

For those so inclined, a KAWS bronze sculpture (self portrait) will be available at his upcoming show at Gering & Lopez. Sized at 11 x 6 1/4 x 9 1/2 inches and produced as an edition of 33, every one will be painted a unique color and cost 25K.

Parisian photographer & street artist JR’s distinctive work has gone up in London recently in preparation for his first solo show “28 Millimetres: WOMEN” at Lazarides (Greek Street and Charing Cross locations) on October 3rd.Â He is known for putting large-scale black & white photographs of people up on buildings, pillars, walls, etc… As you can see, his wheat-pasting skills are phenomenal. To be able to maintain the integrity of his images over so many indentations and outcroppings is amazing and produces a stunning effect. […]
The Internet is abuzz with speculation that the Banksy mural that recently appeared in New York’s Soho is in fact a notice of an upcoming NYC show, perhaps at Deitch. Vicious rumor? Fact or fiction? Only time will tell. AM will keep you informed.
When AM attended the Lazarides show in New York, one of the hot rumors floating around wasÂ that Banksy was in town bombingÂ New York. Well that rumor seemed to come to fruition Saturday as our friends Jake and Ray spotted a “crew” working the side of a building located on the corner of Wooster and Grand. Our friend Jake from Streetsy.com went to ask them about the project and got them to admit “they worked for collossal media, the sign painting company, and they were given […]
Above has posted up new video of his “Stealing from the Rich” piece that he did in Lisbon. It appears that he noticed a beggar/homeless person sitting in her usual spot next to an ATM and that must have inspired him to produce this new work. Learn a little more about the globe-trotting “Arrow Man” after the jump.

Kaws was on hand to sign some goodies for his legion of fans! 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.
