12 Paintings by Laura Owens @ Ooga Booga #2, Los Angeles

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, February 19, 2013
Definitely a show we are going to see in person if we can, because these stunning nearly 12-foot tall pieces look grand in the new Ooga Booga #2 space in Boyle Heights, Los Angeles. Ooga Booga has always been an epicenter of good art and culture in Chinatown, but this new space, especially with LA-based artist Owens' work in it, looks like it will be a great space for exhibitions in the months to come.

"Ecstasy on Bedsheets" by Diego Beyró

Erotica // Tuesday, February 19, 2013
Diego Beyró's productions are characterized by force, the impact of his images and the coexistence of the academic, craftsmanship and the use of new technologies and devices. Both in his series Orgasms, in which he painted that singular instant of ecstasy on bedsheets, and in his more experimental videos, or his digital work, we see the body as an object of thorough study.

"David Bowie is" @ Victoria and Albert Museum, London

Music // Tuesday, February 19, 2013
With his new upcoming album release The Next Day on the way, we have David Bowie on the brain, and we can't help but reminisce about everything from The Labyrinth to Space Oddity. Coincidentally, accompanying this fondness for Bowie is an exhibition presenting a whole array of the musician and cultural icon's career.

This incredible chalk painting was drawn by Horocue (aka José Horacio Rosales-Cueva) onto the streets of Paris in 2005. The beautiful blended painting was transferred from the photograph in his hand and has yet to be identified. (via colossal)

"Walking to the Sky," Sculptures by Jonathan Borofsky

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, February 19, 2013
Maine-based sculptor and artist Jonathan Borofsky's new public art piece, Walking to the Sky, features 10 life-size people walking up a 30-meiter-tall-pole and has been installed permanently in several locations all over the world. In addition to the figures walking up the pole, several onlookers stand at the base gazing up at the sky. Made of stainless steel and resin, the sculpture is "a symbol for our collective search for wisdom and awakened consciousness."  

Dreamscapes by Katie Eleanor

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, February 19, 2013

The Works of Christina K

As an illustrator, design, screen-printer and film lover, Christina K works with a blend of both traditional and digital mark making techniques. The result is striking and sightful illustrations with subtle narratives and delicate and ethereal qualities. Her work has been exhibited internationally and is on permanent exhibition at Cosh galleries in London.

Comics by Finland's Tommi Musturi

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, February 19, 2013
We are thoroughly enjoying the comics of Finnish artist Tommi Musturi. Tommi began translating world-class comics into Finnish in addition to illustrating his own fantastic works. One of his more recent adventures is that of a tiny anthropomorphic man named Samuel who haphazardly wanders through sometimes dangerous and always surreal worlds.
