The Work of MTO

Street Art // Tuesday, September 11, 2012
Berlin-based artist, MTO, sent over photographs of two recent walls he painted in Rennes, France. We were unfamiliar with the artist’s work and pleasantly surprised while browsing through his portfolio. Attached is a video documenting the process of these newest walls.

Studio Visit: Sam Kieth

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, September 11, 2012
The first time I visited Sam Kieth's studio, about 10 years ago, he shared cubicle space directly above The Spaghetti Factory. And he had a janitor. The last time I ventured up to Sam Kieth's studio, 6 years later, he was literally working (comfortably, might I add) in a duct-tape-wrapped mummy of a chair in an underground hideout in the forests of Placerville, CA. By underground I mean UNDERGROUND. There was dirt on top of the ceiling...

XCIA's Street Art Project: iPad App

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, September 11, 2012
The story of Hank O'Neal isn't just that he just quit the CIA (yes, he is literally, Mr xCIA) to shoot street art, or to produce hundreds of jazz albums, or to edit and organize wonderful literary compilations for such modern giants like Djuna Barnes, or that his apartment sits in the heart of SoHo and therefore on the precipise of the emergence of graffiti and street art culture in North America for the past three decades...

Opening: Steve Powers "A Word is Worth a Thousand Pictures" @ Joshua Liner Gallery, NYC

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, September 11, 2012
We had the pleasure to be visit the opening of the most recent exhibition of Stephen Powers, aka ESPO, at the Joshua Line Gallery in NYC. A Word is Worth a Thousand Pictures is a wonderful translation of Powers' love of sign-painting, images, and colors. The pieces are made of enamel on aluminum with type, graphics and bright pigments, where Powers constructs a unique personal language that speaks to all.

The Art of NC Winters

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, September 11, 2012
Too often in our genre an artist is sprung into the spotlight too early, before they've been able to properly grow, develop their technique and actually experience being a gallery artist as a real job. We've been showing N.C. Winters at Gallery1988 for almost 7 years now, and there is no one we've shown who's been able to improve and benefit from that process more than him.

IN L.A.: Gold Coast @ THIS Los Angeles Gallery

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, September 11, 2012
  We stopped by THIS Los Angeles for the opening reception of Gold Coast, an exhibition of new works by San Francisco based artists Daniel Gibson and Mike Bertino. The show's theme is around the idea of California, and the "vortex that happens between this kind of ambition and the illusion of indifferent coolness that bastardizes everything it comes in contact with."

Alex Pardee: Introduces his Juxtapoz.com Curation

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, September 11, 2012
"The opportunity help create content for Juxtapoz was the "counter" that I had always dreamed of having in front of me to give me that reason to reach out to some artists that I've loved, introduce myself, and finally say 'thank you'. So using the words Juxtapoz Magazine as my counter AND my crutch, I reached out to a handful of amazing artists, illustrators, photographers and sculptors, some already my friends, and some complete strangers that I had always been scared to say hello to, and asked them to be a part of my month-long hang out session on this site."

The Portrait Work of Alan Coulson

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, September 11, 2012
A beautiful series of portraits by London-based painter, Alan Coulson. Of course, being a portrait artist can be a crowded field, but there are some that stand out, not for a photoreal style but for the ability to capture a feeling and emotions in the work. Few do it better than Coulson. His work is currently on display at London's National Portrait Gallery for the ???? BP Portrait Award 2012.

A Sun Eruption, Captured

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, September 11, 2012
We are going to call this "solar art." Something so amazing, so incredibly documented, that it almost seems like it can't be real and it has to be a painting or digital manipulation. From NASA, "On August 31, 2012 a long filament of solar material that had been hovering in the sun's atmosphere, the corona, erupted out into space at 4:36 p.m. EDT.
