One of our favorite NYC-based artists, Wes Lang, is set to open a new solo show, Here Comes Sunshine, at the Lower East Side's Half Gallery this May 17, 2012.

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, May 09, 2012
This 2011 artwork by Julien Berthier utilizes a simple, clever gesture on a large scale. The French artist has a practice of diagrammatic drawings, sculpture, and outdoor, site-specific work. "A LOST", a bold intervention by Berthier, grabbed our attention with its blatant desecration of a corporate advertisement and use of sardonic humor.

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, May 09, 2012
Wow, if you think this image looks like a photo, wait until you get to the ones of the cats. We just stumbled across the work of Paullung in the wee hours of the morning, and it took us a bit to start seeing that what we were looking at were illustrations. The Hong King-based artist definitely has a good hand.
