On July 7, 2012, London-born Colin Christian will open Hello, Pretty Pretty, his first solo exhibition with Corey Helford Gallery.

Juxtapoz // Friday, June 29, 2012
Working the commercial field for such brands and publications as Stella McCartney, Surface to Air, United Bamboo, and The Fader, we love how Mario Hugo has taken an almost Moleskine style and turned it into graphic art and design.

Juxtapoz // Friday, June 29, 2012
We are on a kick of fantasy art at the moment, and we have long been fans of the work of Japanese great, Tiger Tateishi, a surreal master who depicts hidden and mysterious frameworks in each of his works. Although he passed away in 1998, the artist left behind an imaginative body of work that would make our founder, Robert Williams, proud.

Upon seeing the official 2012 Wimbledon poster, James Jessiman's contribution stood out to us. The graphic, print influenced image of a bouncing tennis ball is an essential distillation of what occurs in a tennis match, presenting a small, seemingly peripheral yet central detail that encompasses the movement of the game.

Jen Mann's Chromatic Atrophy

Erotica // Thursday, June 28, 2012
"This new series of works explores color and texture, and the deterioration or disintegration of images into an abyss. Working in layers and exhibiting much more freedom in her brushstrokes, these emotional and spontaneous paintings are a great departure from Jen Mann's past works." In her past series entitled "Subconscious Vista" Jen explores themes of nature, spiritualism, fantasy and discovery....
