Pardee's Picks: The Work of Stefan deCarlo

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, October 31, 2012
I happily paid my first visit to New York's MoCCA Festival earlier this year after hearing about it for years from artists and book publishers comparing it to San Francisco's APE (Alternative Press Expo). And amongst the 200 hundred or so artists, independent publishers, screen printers and eccentric literary folk, one person's art in particular stood out to me more than any other.

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, October 31, 2012
Yesterday we caught up with curator Aaron Rose and talked about his new video for MOCAtv, a project, which focuses on the late New York artist Jean-Michel Basquiat. Made in collaboration with Los Angeles based musician Sam Spiegel (AKA DJ Squeak E Clean, one half of DJ duo N.A.S.A.), Aaron and Sam decided they would not pay direct homage to Basquiat and his work.

In case you live under a rock, there have been some major weather and wind events over on the eastern seaboard of the United States of some unprecedented consequence (and our most sincere condolences go out to those who have been affected and are currently muscling through the devastation that Sandy roared through with).

Pardee's Picks: The Works of Jon Vermilyea

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, October 31, 2012
Halloween spirit: Jon Vermilyea lives in a joyous world covered in vomit. No, that wasn't a cheap shot at the fact that he resides in Los Angeles. Jon literally paints with vomit, draws vomit, sleeps in a bed that looks like vomit, and has eyes that are permanently vomited in so that everything he SEES looks like vomit.

Because it's Halloween, we are still trying to help you with costume ideas.

The Paintings of Christian Rex van Minnen

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, October 31, 2012
"In my work, whether stone and oil, metal and wood, or cardboard and papier-mâché alchemy and automatism are linked together in the cognitive creative process.
