The Work of Marc Trujillo

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, July 04, 2012
Nothing says Americana and 4th of July like a good painting of a KFC and a stereotypical mall scene. Marc Trujillo's paintings are exactly what we wanted to find this morning; well-rendered scenes of banal "anywhere America"; the fast food stops, the malls, the parking lots that are truly the fascinating and all-encompassing shared experiences that we as Americans can relate to. Brilliant work.

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, July 04, 2012
Ian Davenport's "Puddle Paintings" currently on view at Art Plural Gallery engage in controlled experiments. Balancing between chance and intent, the works are a direct reflection upon the materiality of the paint and the process of creating the finished panels.

Interview: LUSH Finally Answers our Questions

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, July 03, 2012
We became fast friends with Melbourne's graffiti provocateur LUSH last year when he came to San Francisco for an exhibition at FIFTY24SF Gallery, and turned the gallery into strip show. All the things you hear about LUSH is that he pisses a ton of people off, and that he does so for some sort of Internet fame. Well, what's wrong with that? It's 2012, how else do you get famous? LUSH will be opening up shop in London on July 5 with a large warehouse show that will surely cause some angry comments here. That means this is all working...

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, July 03, 2012
Getting things for free is always fun, and its always fun to get things for free that go to a good political cause/protest. Iconic Japanese artist, Yoshitomo Nara (a 2x Juxtapoz cover artist), has granted his fans the opportunity to download his NO NUKES girl work and use it in protest of the Japanese governments decision to restart two nuclear reactors at the Oi power plant in Fukui Prefecture.

Back Talk: A Conversation with Kelly Allen

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, July 03, 2012
Kelly Allen’s new body of work “Hidden Seeking” (which opens at Thinkspace Gallery this Saturday, July 7) continues the artist’s investigation of graphic symbolism and popular cultural imagery, in collision with the natural world. Deriving her inspiration from variegated sources, her work is both illustrative and symbolically elusive. The artist’s selective use, and omission, of imagery is in keeping with her highly refined and recognizable aesthetic.

The Domino Starry Night

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, July 03, 2012
Nothing says determination more than a man who want to recreate Vincent van Gogh's Starry Night from 7,000 dominos. Nothing more than a second attempt that takes about 11 hours total to build. Domino artist, Flippycat, who has done a similar effect to the Mona Lisa, created his very own Vincent van Dominogh, knocking dominoes over to create the famed painting, Starry Night. Amazing, a tad for the sake of it, and amazing all over again.
