Openings: Sarah Joncas – “Siren” @ Thinkspace Gallery

Last Friday, Sarah Joncas (interviewed) trekked down all the way from Ontario, Canada to attend the opening of her solo show at the Thinkspace Gallery in Los Angeles. Her newest body of work, “Siren”, is inspired by the seduction and romance of music and includes a large-scale mural, the timelapse of which we showed you last week. More opening night images after the jump…

Streets: LUDO in Paris

After visiting the Atlantik Wall and dropping off some well-armed insects for battle, Paris-based street artist LUDO (interviewed) returned home and put up some more subtle work. As part of his “Nature’s Revenge” series, these modified trash cans invite Parisians to partake of some pineapple juice – laced with poison. More images LUDO sent us after the jump…

Video: Poster Boy – “Gone Fishing”

The details behind this video are a little bit murky, but what we like about it is that we get to see the elusive Poster Boy or one of the members of his “collective” in action. Although we don’t especially find these particular works that impressive, seeing that razor blade in action is pretty cool. This old footage is from early 2009, when MoMA put up artwork all over a New York subway station and may or may not have hired Poster Boy to help. […]

Overtime: August 29 – Sept 4

A closer look at Kaws’ upcoming work in Hong Kong. Banksy Hastings stencil defaced by Team Robbo already. Aiko to hit up Shanghai. It’s not good to get drunk carrying a $1.3 million painting around. Surprise surprise. The French are appalled with Murakami’s work. Gagosian to open Paris gallery. Damien Hirst accused of 8 counts of plagarism. What if the world’s richest man collected art? This is how he rolls. Stella Im Hultberg gets raw – in her sketchbook. Nate Frizzell is switching to oils […]

Fame Fest ’10: JR

With the opening of this year’s Fame Festival just around the corner, another artist arrived to make his unique mark on the city of Grottaglie – JR! After getting past some initial obstacles, the French street photographer pasted up an image from his new series of works – “Unframed” and is the first piece pasted up by him that was not his photography. Another look after the jump…

Creative Process: Takashi Murakami – Kaikai & Kiki Concept for Macy’s Thanksgiving Parade

A couple days ago, we shared with you the concept sketch of Takashi Murakami’s float contributions for this year’s Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. With Kaikai and Kiki set to take flight down 34th street this fall, we thought it would be nice to give you a look at the creative process for getting these two characters from Superflat icons to real life floats. Lots of work went into getting the actual proposal to the Macy’s parade committee, from the initial 2-D sketch to the clay molding figures […]

Releases: Audrey Kawasaki – “Migawari” Print

For those Audrey Kawasaki (interviewed) fans out there, if you haven’t heard already, scheduled for later today is a rare print release from the LA-based artist. At 1:00 PM Pacific Time, “Migawari” will be available on her webstore (pre-registration required) with a framed and unframed option. The edition size is 200, with the actual image sized at 15″ x 19″ and will sell out almost instantaneously. The beautiful print is based on a image from her most recent soldout show in NY (covered). Take a […]

Videos / Teaser: Os Gemeos – “It’s Snowing” Animation

We just got wind of a pretty cool project Os Gemeos has been working on – an animated feature based on their beloved imagery and characters. Although the twins are using more traditional methods, this brings to mind Blu and his graffiti-animations. We can’t wait to see what the brothers from Brazil will bring with their imagination in this new medium. Check out a short snippet in the video above entitled “It’s Snowing” which is loosely based on the Russian clown show – Slava’s SnowShow. […]

Installation / Preview: Matthew Feyld – “Untitled 1 & 2″ @ Krets – Malmö & Neon – Brösarp, Sweden

We have been long time admirers of Matthew Feyld’s work here of AM, and we’ve watched him hone his skills over the last few years with numerous group and solo showings. The quality and precision of the Canadian artist is second to none and the fine detail of his line work has to be seen in person to be truly appreciated. Lately, Feyld’s work has been moving away from the largely figurative body of work seen in the past and more towards abstraction whilst still maintaining […]
