Sit Silently

Photography // Wednesday, September 24, 2014
In her series “Sit Silently”, Latvian photographer Katrina Kepule captures the solitary moments that she finds herself at rest. Kepule also visually explores her search for her own Latvian identity within a landscape that seems behind the times. Her images show a pensiveness that invites the viewer to take a moment of their own to silently explore each photograph. 

ARTIST INTERVIEW: EDUARDO KOBRA

Street Art // Wednesday, September 24, 2014
Eduardo Kobra has long been on the Juxtapoz radar, not only because he creates some of the more massive and intricate murals being done in the world today, but because he does them with super techni-color explosions. His multi-storied mural on skyscraper in Sao Paulo back in 2013 created a huge buzz in the street art community, and Kobra has continued to make great works since. This week, as part of the Perrier Street Art campaign and launch of new bottle and can designs by Kobra, Jon One, and Sasu, we sat down with Kobra to discuss his process, history, and how to paint big.

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, September 24, 2014
Library Street Collective in Detroit continues a great string of shows (Kelsey Brookes, Sam Friedman to name a few) with a new solo show of works by California-based Dave Kinsey. As we just read about the show, and what is captured in this short film to preview Kinsey's "Cushion of Memory" show, is "the new exhibit will showcase a brand new body of work as Kinsey takes cues from the likes of the Sequoia National Park — near his home on the west coast — to create deep, abstract landscapes. “Cushion of Memory” opens in Detroit on September 27 and will remain on display at the gallery through November 8."

Kickstart A Film With MADSTEEZ

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, September 24, 2014
Jamie Heinrich and Zac Hug are looking to make a short film staring Mark Paul Deren (aka Madsteez). He is blind in one eye. The premise? When his eye doctor experimentally restores vision to his blind left eye, an artist is only able to create incomplete paintings. What follows is a story about a man who sees colors, shapes, and people differently than he did before, and asks the question from the film’s opening scene: “Where is the moment and how do we know when anything; art, relationships, lunch — when are these things actually finished?”

Photography // Wednesday, September 24, 2014

He is so trusting of my work and our process… I’m truly blessed to have him as my friend and collaborator.” Malkovich, Malkovich, Malkovich honors photographs that have impacted Sandro.
