Tonight, Ocotber 19 at PRISM Gallery in Los Angeles, San Francisco-based Clare Rojas will be opening her second solo presentation at the gallery.

Juxtapoz // Friday, October 19, 2012
Los Angeles-based draftsman, Kofie, recently completed this exceptionally large mural entitled "Futurino" for the Picturin Torino Festival in Turin, Italy. Kofie’s strong line work and geometrical shapes blends naturally into the architectural landscape. Definitely one of the biggest mural we have seen him paint yet.

Illustration // Friday, October 19, 2012
Eduardo Taborda's mindmelting drawings are nightmarish visions founded on meticulous linework and heavy symbolism. Working primarily in black and white, Taborda shows a staggering attention to detail and a strong commitment to the gruesome in apocalyptic tableaus where dying men beg for mercy and burst into flames. Taborda is based in Porto Alegre, Brazil.

The Sketchbooks of Gabriel Kieling

Juxtapoz // Friday, October 19, 2012
Beautiful erotic compositions and portraits in the sketchbooks of Sao Paulo architect, Gabriel Kieling. They have the precision and balance that could be expected in an architectural blueprint, with clean lines of geometry and angular accents but are mixed with the passion of human emotion, desire and skin.

They aspire to blend the innate beauty of the organic with the scientific power of industry. I incorporate design patterns seen in different cultures throughout history such as Celtic jewelry, Islamic rugs, Modern architecture, and Ancient Greek pottery...'
