In the Magazine: Alex Gross

Juxtapoz // Thursday, September 18, 2014
Alex Gross paints intense images of an ominous future. In fact, the future isn’t so distant, it’s here. And it isn’t full of flying cars or “robot servants bringing us drinks,” as the artist points out in this interview. I caught up with this design-minded oil painter just before the opening of his new exhibition, Future Tense, alongside the release of his new monograph of the same name. This doubly meaningful title is poignant and accurately describes our precarious surroundings for the foreseeable future. The future’s so tense, you gotta wear shades. And if you’re a figure in an Alex Gross painting, those shades are probably Gucci.

Connecting The Lines

Photography // Thursday, September 18, 2014
German street photographer Siegfried Hansen has an interesting way of connecting the dots, with lines. His main focuses are not humans and faces, but rather graphic connections and formal relations, which tell the stories of coincidences in public areas. The results are meticulously linear.

Illustration // Thursday, September 18, 2014
Illustrator Tomer Hanuka‘s work encompasses a varied mindset — that of the entrepreneur and the focused businessman. The deliberate storyteller and the insightful artist.
