Illustration by Jacques Floret

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, July 31, 2012
Jacques Floret is a French illustrator. His use of flattened color is done well. Each scene is a stylized and simplified snapshot from reality. Many of the works capture inherently French scenery with anything from Parisian cafe life to French-flag face paint. Other works seem to be the artist's own humorous commentary, as with the fish wielding, bikini-clad female. Simple renderings, pleasant hues, and a bit of a chuckle are all helpful things on a Tuesday morning. Enjoy.

Works by Deedee Cheriel

Juxtapoz // Monday, July 30, 2012
We have shown the work of Los Angeles-based artist Deedee Cheriel in the magazine and on the site before, but never a profile of a grouping of work. And why not today we ask? We have always enjoyed the Pacific Northwest influence mixed with animal imagery in Cheriel's work, and this series of works only strengthens that admiration. She is currently showing in Unnatural - Natural History at the Royal West of England Academy.

Juxtapoz // Monday, July 30, 2012
With the same anticipation as last year when Juxtapoz curated the art for the annual Outside Lands Music and Art Festival in San Francisco, we are looking forward to the pack of kids who drive up from Arizona to see Metallica headline, wondering why it’s 49 degrees and foggy in August in California. For the 5th annual festival Juxtapoz is back at art curation duties, braving the schizophrenic weather with a wide assortment of live painting, murals, installations, and interactive art from some of our favorite international artists.

Human Default by Gianluca Traina

Juxtapoz // Monday, July 30, 2012
Well this is a good way to kick off the week, the amazing "skin dress" concept from Italian artist Gianluca Traina called Human Default. We were trying to figure out if the work was a painting or sculpture, but from what we can tell, its a photo manipulation. We still approve.
