The Art of Johnny Ryan

Juxtapoz // Friday, September 21, 2012
I'm pretty sure the words "Johnny Ryan" mean "Fuck You" in Elvish or Klingon. That being said, a lot of people nowadays are scared to say "Johnny Ryan" to anyone, even half-assed quasi-celebrities that probably could use a good "Johnny Ryan",  because they're afraid of losing followers, or offending someone, or not being accused of "hatin on shit".

The Sculptures of Gehard Demetz

Juxtapoz // Friday, September 21, 2012
In just a few years, Gehard Demetz has risen to international prominence by applying incredible craftsmanship as a traditional woodcarver to subjects that are new and appealing to contemporary viewers. His sculptures of children are at the same time attractive and disquieting, rendered with a perfection that is by no means rhetorical or classical.

Juxtapoz // Friday, September 21, 2012
In this series, artist Anton Marrast has created four illustrations based on the short stories of Gabriel García Márquez.

Erotic Photography by Ed Ross (NSFW)

Erotica // Friday, September 21, 2012
Take a look at the stunning photography of Ed Ross. Ed's portfolio is filled with seductive nudes and his photos have an intensely vintage feel to them. The process to create his work is beyond unique and complex. He uses the wet print, aka collodion, photographic process and all of his images are tintypes, which he describes as "a piece of blackened aluminum over which the image is created in silver, and over which a varnish is placed to protect the fragile image from physical harm". An amazing process which creates equally amazing work.

Alex Pardee Studio Visit with Brett Amory

Juxtapoz // Thursday, September 20, 2012
If you look up the word "amory" on Urban Dictionary, the number one definition states that "amory" is often used to describe Heaven, especially when used to describe the wonderful beacon of light. Though I doubt that oil painter Brett Amory is aware of this at all, as I stare at some of his ethereal and often eerie urban landscape paintings, the definition seems to fit the bill.

Juxtapoz // Thursday, September 20, 2012
Here in the Juxtapoz office, we are getting into the political mood as we just completed our November 2012 Politics issue. (Curated by Ron English, get ready).

Saber is building a community for a skywriting campaign to illuminate Mitt Romney's declaration that he will eliminate funding for The National Endowment for the Arts, PBS, and NPR if elected.
