Go Vote! (And Enjoy Some Presidential Art by Jason Heuser)

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, November 06, 2012
Today is Election Day, and we look back on Jason Heuser's awesome sereies of reimaging past Commander-in-Chiefs as new and improved superheroes. So, you get JFK as a riding a unicorn on the moom, Lincoln riding a bear with a machine gun and copy of the Gettysburg Address. We want to know what Obama gets if he gets a second term?

Illustrations by Rich Kelly

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, November 06, 2012
There is a little bit of everything in the works of Rich Kelly. You have music posters, movie posters, television program illustrations, and straight gallery works all from one hand (or two hands). Kelly has made work for Bonnie Prince Billy, Breaking Bad, Planet of the Apes, R Kelly, The Tallest Man on Earth, and other musicians and entertainers. He is trying not to break things.

HOW NOSM Paint at Bowery & Houston

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, November 06, 2012
Only days after Hurricane Sandy left areas of Manhattan and surrounding boroughs crippled from it’s water surge, twin brothers, How and Nosm, took on the famed Bowery Mural wall creating a highly-detailed piece. A number of light bulbs can be seen with black smoke coming out along with rising water, appropriate additions. The duo adds to the long list of artists that have created work on this wall including Keith Haring, Barry McGee, Os Gemeos, Faile, and more.

The Pool by Jen Lewin

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, November 06, 2012
Let's let Jen Lewin explain "The Pool": The Pool is an environment of giant, concentric circles created from interactive circular pads. By entering the pool, you enter a world where play and collaborative movement create swirling effects of light and color. Imagine a giant canvas where you can paint and splash light collaboratively.

The Wes Anderson Alphabet

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, November 06, 2012
Why not? We have been in a Wes Anderson mood with the "Bad Dads" show at Spoke Art, so might as well move onto the Wes Anderson Alphabet as produced by Madrid, Spain-based Hexagonall. We don't get all 26, but 18 posters representing the film canon that is Wes Anderson will suffice on this election day.

Mirage by Katie Grinnan

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, November 06, 2012
Obviously, unless you have been under a rock, you know that it is Election Day here in the United States of America. That said, go vote. Don't read blogs. Wait, maybe the New York Times, but not art blogs. But if you happen to be on the art blog rounds today, we found this sculpture by Katie Grinnan called Mirage, that we thought spoke to the coming together of people to do something in unison. Hopefully vote blue. Or perhaps that Mirage thing is too much to ignore...

Juxtapoz // Monday, November 05, 2012
Last weekend, we stopped by the opening reception of Steve Olson’s latest solo exhibition Inside Out, at Hadid Gallery In Los Angeles. Olson works is a post modern work collection that embeds narrative themes of capitalism, pop culture, social decadence and modern platitudes all with his drive of primal punk style. Photos and more after the jump...
