Dale Grimshaw @ Signal Gallery, London

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, October 24, 2012
Dale Grimshaw is a dynamic artist calling on powerful emotions and strongly held belief to fuel his creative output. This tumultuous energy has produced a marvelous series of paintings over the past five years - works that have often been highly personal, but because of their directness and honesty, have succeeded in resonating with very many people.

Brendan Monroe's Islands n.2 Comic

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, October 24, 2012
A nice little surprise in the mail yesterday: Brendan Monroe's new release, the Islands n.2 comic. Says Monroe, "This is the second visual story of my wandering dream based comics. The couple explores the deep sea floor and the gravitational relationship of moon and tide."

RIPO "Surreal But So Real" for Tudela de Navarra, Spain

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, October 24, 2012
We got a few images of this fantastic mural that RIPO finished in Tudela de Navarra, Spain for the Avant-Garde Urbano Festival. The name is perhaps even better: Surreal But So Real. That is our feeling about much of the great building-sized murals being completed in Europe these days. Thanks to Henrik Haven for the head's up.

Inside Google's Data Centers by Connie Zhou

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, October 24, 2012
The virtual has a physical component. We think of Google so often as just something in the virtual world of cyberspace, that we tend to forget it has to exist, especially in data transmission and storage, as a physical space. Photographer Connie Zhou documents the Google data centers, and they appear to some of the most candy coated data centers you will ever see. 

The Works of Pete Tapang

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, October 24, 2012
Pete Tapang is a self taught illustrator based in Frankfurt, Germany. On why he depicts women, Pete says, 'People like to draw what they feel is beautiful! Some people like buildings, landscapes, poodles, chipmunks, or even smurfs, but I think that the most beautiful creation that God ever made was the woman, so why not draw that...'

Gargoyle Projections by Clément Briend

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, October 24, 2012
We got gargoyles in the trees! Artist Clément Briend takes the textures of trees and light projects images of gargoyles to give the effect that the trees are indeed alive. The result is some of the most beautiful, and fun, imagery we have been able to post on this site in the past few months. 

The Illustrative Works of Goni Montes

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, October 24, 2012
From the site of Goni Montes, an illustrator we really admire, "I was born in Ponce, Puerto Rico, got a BA from the UPR at Mayagüez, and an MFA from SCAD Atlanta. I began working as a scientific illustrator for the Puerto Rico Sea Grant. Now I mostly do editorial illustrations with some fantasy here and there."

Pardee's Picks: The Works of Jeff Ladouceur

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, October 23, 2012
Five or six years ago, while I was roaming around Kinokuniya, one of my favorite book stores in San Francisco, something that looked like a disease-soaked small pamphlet-sized book caught my eye. In bold, but fancy letters, the word "EBOLA" was stamped on the front adorning a gorgeously rendered child-like bunny rabbit with no face. I had no idea what I was looking at, but I was more than intrigued.

In L.A.: Clare Rojas "Pith" @ Prism Gallery

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, October 23, 2012
  This past weekend Clare Rojas’ latest exhibition opened up at Prism gallery in Los Angeles. Entitled Pith, this body of paintings signals a further exploration for Rojas, in respect to both subject and materiality. In this exhibition, we observe the artist’s concentration on abstract space and the blurring between architectural dimensionality and geometric flatness. Photos and more after the jump…
