Juxtapoz // Wednesday, April 01, 2015
We have been doing a ton of research in lieu of our trip to Tokyo, and we were looking into aritsts of the Nihonga style, and ran across the contemporary artist Ikenaga Yasunari that we have writting about.

Great American Pinup @ LOUIS K. MEISEL GALLERY, NYC

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, March 31, 2015
So, they were kind of dirty back in the late 1940s and 1950s, huh? Louis K Meisel Gallery in NYC is set to host the "Great American Pin-Up,"  an exhibition that features "an outstanding selection of oils by Gil Elvgren, watercolors by Alberto Vargas, and pastels by Rolf Armstrong. The 47-piece collection contains many rare oversized pin-ups that include compositions of the ‘girl next door’ to scenes that verge on fantasy." We aren't sure why the Mel Ramos painting from 2013 is up on the site, so maybe this show collects a half-century of pin-ups?
