ESPO's Creative Outlet in Brooklyn

Juxtapoz // Monday, December 17, 2012
Anyone feeling the holiday gift-buying panic yet? We sort of suffered through some high-tension shopping this past weekend, but if we were in Brooklyn, perhaps we would have found some peace. Steve Powers, 2x Juxtapoz cover artist, just opened a new storefront, ESPO's Creative Outlet. Residing at 4th Ave and Bergen St, in the Boerum Hill section of Brooklyn, the shop has a range of in-store only prints, along with ESPO-related books, catalogs, ephemera and a raincoat or two.

Juxtapoz // Monday, December 17, 2012
Luca Mantovanelli is a young Italian architect and illustrator. His mixed media illustrated portraits combine a bizarre duo of images of male youth and colored, exotic birds. There is a strange eroticism to his images that I'm not quite sure how to place, but somehow the elements in his portraits complement each other.

Swampy: Under the Bridge

Juxtapoz // Monday, December 17, 2012
We never really want to classify someone like Swampy into “street art” or “graffiti” or anywhere for that matter. He kind of transcends all of them, much like a majority of artists working in the streets these days. In this picture, he’s the guy doing the roller on a sunny day in California under a bridge.

The Work of Kelly Durette

Juxtapoz // Sunday, December 16, 2012
Kelly Durette's illustrations aren't for the visually sensitive, nor should you explore further if you have a tendency towards nausea, death or gore. Her beautifully grotesque renderings of cadavers, frostbite, medical conditions and treatments are done both skillfully and gorgeously- with careful attention to all of the inner hues of the human body.
