One of our favorite South American artists, Chile's BascoVazko, just opened a new exhibition at Galeria AFA in Santiago, entitled No tenemos donde ir (We Have Nowhere To Go).

The Erotic Works of Raymond Pettibon

Erotica // Tuesday, April 17, 2012
Known for his comic-like drawings with disturbing, ironic or ambiguous text, Pettibon's subject matter is sometimes violent and anti-authoritarian. From the late 1970s through the mid-1980s, he was closely associated with the punk rock band Black Flag and the record label SST Records, both founded by his older brother Greg Ginn. Beginning in the mid 1980s, he became a well-known figure in the contemporary art scene.

Drawings by Tokie Lin

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, April 17, 2012
Tokie Lin's drawings exhibit a critical and sardonic view of contemporary societal structures and attempts at reform, or as Lin seems to think, relative failures at these attempts. The work itself is dark and humorous in a way that seduces us and keeps interested with its inherent quirks and distortions.

The Work of Bruna Canepa

Illustration // Tuesday, April 17, 2012
Bruna Canepa is a Sao Paulo based illustrator specializing in architecturally rendered, geometric plans of dwelling and space travel. Her tedious renderings have the appearance of minimalistic, future blue-prints and have the appeal of modern high-artists of the likes of Richard Tuttle.

Major Lazer "Get Free" Music Video

Music // Tuesday, April 17, 2012
Switch and Diplo's Major Lazer project is as much about visuals as it is about the music, and their newest music video, "Get Free," featuring vocals from the Dirty Projectors Amber Coffman is another gem. Cartoon video, a pretty catchy tune, good work from Major Lazer once again.

The May 2012 issue of Juxtapoz is our special examination on the state of Public Art in 2012.

Olivier Bonhomme Illustration

Illustration // Monday, April 16, 2012
Olivier Bonhomme's ‘Acid Jazz Essential’s series is composed of scenes of warped perspectives, wind-swept limbs, and groovy colours. Amongst the storm of high-energy ink and humorous inhabitants, we also find moments of stillness, where we can stop and appreciate Olivier’s talent as a well-practised drawer. We like the combination of one-directional and cross hatching in the more built up areas and depth of tones achieved...
