Do you know the Can Man?

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, July 03, 2013
His or her name is My Dog Sighs, and does something fun with street interventions in the vein of OakOak, Slinkachu, and EVOL: take something in the environment, in this case liter, and transform it into a playful piece of interactive art. Well, in this case, interact with it, keep it, or please place it in the recycle bin.

Preview: Joram Roukes, Adam Caldwell, Ekundayo + Rodrigo Luff @ Thinkspace, Culver City

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, July 02, 2013
Thinkspace is pleased to present Reflections of a New Generation, featuring new work by Ekundayo, Joram Roukes (featured in our April 2013 issue), and Adam Caldwell. These three distinct artists are unified by a painterly approach to their subject matter and by a tendency towards the surreal. Each works from a unique set of influences and introjects a personal dimension into that of the cultural. Gleaning inspiration from subculture, personal experience, and art history, each has developed a style entirely their own that speaks to a complex locus of coexisting cultural sensibilities.

Insane Sculpture Works by Chris Riccardo

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, July 02, 2013
Well, a good way to wake in the morning, in our opinion, is to just get right into the bizarre. And that is what we have in these visionary and creepy sculptures by Chris Riccardo, who takes grotesque sexuality and just interesting characters to a whole new level in his sculptures. Can you imagine showing up when he is putting these ceramics in the oven?

Photographs of the 1913 50th Gettysburg Anniversary

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, July 02, 2013
This week will be the 150th anniversary of Gettysburg. In 1913, on the 50th anniversary of the battle, veterans from both sides arrived at the site to commemorate the war. These incredible pictures of the veterans, many of them in their 70s, bring us to a time and place that is hard to comprehend and imagine.

This morning we take a look at the fun and imaginative art of Kyle Bean, an artist who often collaborates with photographers, directors and set-designers. In one of his more recent series he constructs 'lightweight' weights (anvil, dumbbell, anchor etc..). We also are thoroughly enjoying his eggshell chicken and receipt lion...

Sculptures Made From Old Typwriters by Jeremy Mayer

Oakland-based sculptor and illustrator Jeremy Mayer collects old typewriter parts and consctructs anatomically correct humans and animals. The pieces aren't welded or glued but intriciately put together only using the original metal components. "The first few pieces I created were very crude, but I loved the idea of making something from an archaic relic and from only one other object."

Preview: Jen Stark "Vortextural" @ Cooper Cole, Toronto

Juxtapoz // Monday, July 01, 2013
One of our favorite artists, Jen Stark, is set to open a solo show, Vortexural, at Cooper Cole Gallery in Toronto this Friday, July 5. As the gallery notes, Jen Stark's work is distinct and undeniably recognizable for its cyclical, colourful, op-art attributes. Stark fuels her craftsmanship with inspiration drawn from an interest in mathematics, natural organisms, and outer space. Optical illusions, colour gradations, and repetition play key roles in her sculptural works. The visual outcome is optically alluring and generates an ambiance of the surreal. These bold, colourful installations suggest a fantastical, psychedelic atmosphere and welcomes the viewer into the realm of Stark's imagination.
