The Works of Joseph Park

Juxtapoz // Saturday, April 27, 2013
We learned about Seattle-based fine artist Joseph Park from shows at both Roq La Rue and Rena Bransten, and realized we hadn't written about the artist in quite some time. Well, now is the time. His show at Bransten in 2011 was the last time we saw the work in person, but some of these works have made their way into other shows over the past few years. All these works are oil on panel. 

Paper Birds by Johan Scherft

Juxtapoz // Saturday, April 27, 2013
Johan Scherft started making papercraft birds at the age of 14. His first birds were modeled after English artist Malcolm Topp and made using a colored pencil. Now 30 years later, the Dutch artist uses a computer to aid in initial blueprints and completes the rest of the painstaking process by hand. 

Lush's view on Cops

Graffiti // Saturday, April 27, 2013
Most of the time his work is controversial, people love to hate him while others find entertainment and humor in his work. Staying busy is one thing that can’t be denied about Australian graffiti prankster, Lush, with new stuff constantly being churned out. Here’s an update of what he’s been up to, as the artist shifts his attention to cops in his new walls and illustrations.

That menacing, wide-grinning fish you can’t escape seeing in the streets of Barcelona is finding his way around Paris as of recent. The artist responsible, Pez, has been painting his signature character for over a decade and they continue to multiply, turning into large schools of fish.

Dan Voinea "A Momentary Rise of Reason" @ Beers.Lambert Contemporary, London

Juxtapoz // Friday, April 26, 2013
One of our favorite painters that we have learned about over the past year is Romanian artist Dan Voinea, who mixes both a classical realist style with an almost performance like character connstruction. Voinea just opened a solo show, A Momentary Rise of Reason, at Beers.Lambert Contemporary in London. As the gallery notes, " Yet while technically realistic and anatomically correctly proportioned, the works are characterized as much by their apparent lack of realism: their fantastical tendencies, collapsing or nondescript environments and preference for magic realist narratives. "

Six large inflatable sculptures currently on display at M+Museum in Hong Kong

Street Art // Friday, April 26, 2013
Los Angeles-based artist, Paul McCarthy, just took a giant poop in Hong Kong so to speak, but this wasn’t the first time this had happened, just the most recent. Back in 2008, the same ““Complex Pile” was installed in Switzerland and in a gust of wind took off bringing down a power line, breaking a greenhouse window, and smashed a window at a children’s home (We hope The Onion did something with this at some point).The outdoor sculpture park at the M+Museum in the West Kowloon district of Hong Kong is currently exhibiting this sculpture along with six other large inflatable sculptures by artists Cao Fei, Tam Wai Ping, Jeremy Delle, and Choi Jeong Hwa.
