New Work From Winnie Truong

Juxtapoz // Friday, April 25, 2014
Winnie Truong draws hair better than anyone, and her subjects are soulful and strange, but the way we categorize them in our minds says more about us than them. They are otherworldly and they seem comfortable being hairy, so who are we to judge? WInnie is featured in our May, 2014 issue and her "Rites of Passage" exhibition at Galleri Benoni in Denmark just closed this week!

Paintings by Troy Brooks

Juxtapoz // Friday, April 25, 2014
The women of Troy Brooks present an elaborate pageantry of characters observed in allegorical settings. These women play out intimate scenes through a detailed visual language. They are usually caught in moments where something transformative has or is about to happen.

"Big Mother," a New Book by Raymond Lemstra

Juxtapoz // Friday, April 25, 2014
Dutch artist and illustrator Raymond Lemstra, who we interviewed back in December, has recently come out with a new book published by Nobrow. Inspired by primitive art, Raymond Lemstra focuses on using the most basic components of drawing to evoke a visceral human response. The world Lemstra continues to build with every drawing is both subdued and wonderfully rich, full of mystery and totemic power...

The women of Tehran's Red Light District

Photography // Friday, April 25, 2014
From 1975 until 1977, photojournalist Kaveh Golestan documented the faces and stories of the women of Tehran's red light district. Even though Golestan is primarily known for documenting war and conflict in the Middle East, her social photography shines a similarly necessary light on a different kind of life happening in Iran.

Liz Brizzi & Jolene Lai @ Thinkspace Gallery, Culver City

Juxtapoz // Thursday, April 24, 2014
Thinkspace Gallery is pleased to present Adrift, the gallery’s first solo exhibition of new works by Los Angeles based, French born, artist Liz Brizzi. Her mixed media collage paintings combine photography, paper and acrylic washes of paint on board to build complex and layered graphic works that capture the architectural specters of the urban core. Originally looking to the forgotten and often bereft and marginalized corners of Los Angeles, and traveling to its outskirts and un-gentrified peripheries, Brizzi sought to excavate the beauty of its imperfect embrasures.

Romain Laurent for Hermès

Juxtapoz // Thursday, April 24, 2014
Romain Laurent has always been a favorite on the site for his ability to make believe in natural, reality-based situations. His urban surfers are a crowd favorite. The photographer/filmer just created a great commercial, advertising short for luxury retailer Hermès, where a man goes on a journey through and out of some very nice clothing.
