Super Issue No. 1

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, June 27, 2012
We just picked up the latest offering from 607Visual, a 12 page full-color newspaper simply titled SUPER. Curated and published by 607Visual, Super is a collection of creative-writing, photography, painting, design, illustration, and more. Super has the feel and heart of a 'Zine but takes the shape of a newspaper. It is great to see images on a large scale, when it seems like anything print is just getting smaller these days.

The Work of Marc Bell

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, June 27, 2012
Marc Bell will soon be showing in the group show Zagga Zow at Cooper Cole Gallery in Toronto, and we thought this was as good time as any to show a few works from one of our favorite illustrators/comic/cartoonists/artists. Apart from creating the comic Shrimpy and Paul, his monograph Hot Potatoe is a must have, and the Canadian artist has been featured in various publications such as Kramers Ergot and The Ganzfeld.

The Photography of Elizaveta Porodina

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, June 27, 2012
This isn't the first time we have showcased the fine art and fashion photography of Munich's Elizaveta Porodina; it was when we came across this photo, King Volcano, that reminded us how much we are enthralled by the young photographer's work.

Fantasy Worlds by James McCarthy

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, June 27, 2012
James McCarthy has a wild imagination, one that he has high command over and can spill out into his artwork. The artist creates highly detailed, surreal universes that look like carnivals on distant planets. Where Dali meets science fiction...

Clever Body Art by Japan's Chooo-san

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, June 27, 2012
Art can be simple. You can entertain yourself for hours on the internet, finding the weird, the funny, and the bizarre, and when we came across the work of Japanese art student Chooo-San last night, we were highly entertained. Painting on her body to create an almost animated illustion, she creates fun scenarios that make her appear to be part cartoon.

The Work of Michael Kagan

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, June 27, 2012
New York City-based Michael Kagan makes us remember why we love space travel in the first place; it documents well, even if it is oil on linen pieces based on photographs. He has a whole wonderful series of large scale paintings of NASA space missions, all created with both figurative and abstract flourishes.

Lisbon-based, London-residing artist, Vhils, newest solo exhibition entitled “Entropy” opened last weekend at Magda Danysz Gallery in Paris. Expanding his practice, his new body of work explores portraits in a variety of techniques such as carved Styrofoam and wood, acid etched metal, laser cut posters, and ink and bleach on paper.

The Vibrant "Mess" of Michael Olivo

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, June 27, 2012
I'm not sure what to say about the work of Oakland, CA based Michael Olivo, but I like it. He creates these hideously vibrant messes of color and form, sometimes resembling epic wrestling matches with alien creatures stricken with some life-eating skin mutations. They're rich, exciting, and well, I can't say that I am not automatically attracted to them, in some strange way...

Travis Millard for Dinosaur Jr's "I Bet on Sky" Album Cover Artwork

Music // Tuesday, June 26, 2012
Two things to be excited about: one, Dinosaur Jr. is coming out with a new album, I Bet On Sky, this September 18, and our friend, Travis Millard, did the album cover artwork. When we saw the artwork last week, we said to ourselves, that looks familiar. After exhaustive research, our suspicions were confirmed.
