5/15/11

Chicago, May 2011 - During the preview for the Art Chicago fair, ArtSlant Editor Abraham Ritchie was able to sit down with Shepard Fairey who was showing his newest work at the fair as well as DJing music sets later in the evening. Ritchie caught up with Fairey about LA MOCA's new street art exhibition “Art in the Streets,” the arrest of artist REVOK, what happens when street art gets off of the street and into the gallery, and Fairey’s relation to his iconic OBAMA HOPE poster of President Obama as...

By Melody Mock for ABQ Arts The words “YOUR” and “HERE” sit above and below the image of an eye on a billboard in a silkscreened image by Shepard Fairey. “YOUR [eye] HERE”, it says, commanding you to pay attention. This image graces the cover of the guide to “STREET ARTS: A Celebration of Hip Hop Culture & Free Expression.” In October and November in Albuquerque, your eye and your ear will be drawn to a number of projects, happenings and discussions through this citywide collaboration org...

By Adrian GomezJournal Staff Writer Chris Stain works quickly on his graffiti art. It's a quality that suits him well — at least now. "I first got caught when I was 11," says the New York City-based graffiti artist. "Since then, I've learned that I have to be quick with what I do." Stain is one of a handful of artists participating in 516 ARTS' "Street Arts: A Celebration of Hip-Hop Culture and Free Expression" exhibit. The show runs until Dec. 11, mainly at 516 ARTS in Downtown Albuquerque. "I jumpe... [more]

Chaz Bojorquez, a Juxtapoz cover artist in March 2009 and a penultimate legend of the Los Angeles graffiti game (we are talking Orson Welles level), made a video this past Fall with poet Idris Goodwin. Titled "New Mexico Remix," the piece was part of a three-month look at Hip-Hop culture and free speech showcased at a non-profit art space in Albuquerque, called 516 ARTS.

By Nancy Salem Street artists who paint, paste and sculpt on urban space haven't always received a warm welcome from the fine art world. Reactions to the art form in the past have ranged from a yawn to accusations of vandalism and threats of jail. But as a major project this fall in Albuquerque shows, today street art is increasingly popular with a broad audience, and with the art world too. "STREET ARTS: A Celebration of Hip Hop Culture & Free Expression" was organized by the downtown, nonp... [more]

I’m sitting at a Starbucks on the edge of Beverly Hills, across from Armani Exchange. Next to me two customers discuss their “nail situation” and their colorist–a blond expert–with a gravitas usually reserved for the War Room. After all it is Oscar party weekend. I couldn’t help comparing the magnitude of this battle with the one being fought less than five miles from here, in West Hollywood, where a defunct Big Lots houses “Manifest Equality,” promoting equal rights for gay, lesbian, bisexual, an...

More than a week after the outrageously crowded May Day opening, Shepard Fairey’s show at Deitch Projects is still somewhat of a circus. “It’s been the busiest week of my life,” said one of the gallery directors as she simultaneously fielded questions about still-available work from several parties of interested buyers, stapled checklists, and answered emails. As the last show at Jeffrey Deitch’s gallery before he makes the move to LA to assume the directorship of LAMO... [more]

Six teens from YBCA's Young Artists at Work (YAAW) program curated a dynamic exhibition of work from eleven renowned local and international artists. From the boldly iconic graphic art of Shepard Fairey to the haunting video art of Melissa Day, and the politically charged posters and silkscreens of Juan R. Fuentes to Claudia Bernardi's “frescoes on paper,” Through Future Eyes explores the universal and transcendental experience of endurance.The curators are part of YAAW, YBCA's innovative educat...

Posted 12/15/07

The very large show of new work by Shepard Fairey at Merry Karnowsky goes a long way toward recontextualizing the artist not simply as a “street” artist (responsible for those OBEY stencils and stickers) who has made the move from street to gallery but as a sophisticated, if slightly obsessive, collector of images. Shepard’s current work falls much closer to the paintings of Lari Pittman (for example) than that of fellow street-related artists such as Barry Magee. Magee and Pittman are both wo... [more]
