A perfect way to start your Friday, June 01, what we consider to be the first official day of summer. Krooked Skateboards captured legendary man/artist/skateboarder/personality Mark Gonzales as he skated and played The Gonz in Paris. And, well-titled, it is called "Gonz Dancing."

The Works of Joshua Bronaugh

Juxtapoz // Friday, June 01, 2012
'Joshua Bronaugh is an artist that is originally from many places – he spent some years in Germany, before skipping through American mountains, forests, and salt flats, landing eventually in the south. His paintings, often large in scale, focus the obsessions of memory and emotion, almost always pushing the human figure to the edges of representation and, in some instances, far into abstraction.'

Illustrations by Rachel Fagiano

Juxtapoz // Friday, June 01, 2012
Through her work, Rachel Fagiano uses illustration, painting, sculpture and installation art to explore the ways in which representations of bodies can explicitly or implicitly reflect on cultural and political issues in the spaces we occupy. 'I am particularly interested in formative moments--corporeal and cerebral--and how they are instrumental in creating individual and collective identities.'

There isn’t a clear vision in the beginning - more of a feeling of what I am going for…a mood. ...

Juxtapoz // Thursday, May 31, 2012
A bit of tattoo, throw in a little pop-surrealism, and solid illustration chops, and you have the work of France's Nicolas Le Borgne. We just saw on Fecal Face that Le Borgne has new paintings and drawings done, and from what we saw in 2009, we really like the artist's progress...
