Photography // Wednesday, May 07, 2014
Bruce Davidson Time of Change: 1961-1965 opened at The Robert Koch Gallery in San Francisco last week. Davidson, who was featured in our special June 2013 Beastie Boys issue, traveled by bus with the anti-segregationist Freedom Riders from Montgomery, Alabama to Jackson, Mississippi and chronicled what later became known as the Civil Rights Movement. The following year Davidson received a Guggenheim Fellowship, which allowed him to further document the African-American struggle for equal opportunity throughout the country.

We are totally getting a kick out these interesting sea creatury sandcastles.

Illustrations by Lajos Kozma (circa 1909)

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, May 07, 2014
A beautiful set of illustrations from Hungarian modernist, Lajos Kozma. We just read on Dwell that he studied architecture at Budapest Imperial Joseph College, and after graduating, he joined the Young Ones, a group of designers who studied Hungarian folk art and architecture and created furniture.

It's Not Milk Paintings by Ivan Alifan

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, May 07, 2014
This series is an exploration of the modern gaze; of ambiguous figurative paintings that are revealed and transformed within the act of the individuals' views. These portraits are not an attempt to render physical characteristics but rather create a language of underlying sexual subtexts. Using ambiguity as a tool demands the viewer's exploration of their psyches and provokes self awareness...

Ono’u festival Tahiti: Part 1

Graffiti // Tuesday, May 06, 2014
Arriving just as the sun was rising, we were greeted at the airport with live Tahitian music, fresh flowered leis and warm smiles. Despite the long overnight flight, everyone appeared enthusiastic about being on an island in the middle of the South Pacific Ocean and to be painting graffiti on it as well! After the standard meet and greet, summary of the week activities and paint distribution, everyone was able to soak in the island’s amenities (snorkeling, kayaking, sun bathing, you know, tropical island stuff!)

Studio Visit: Monica Canilao in Oakland, California

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, May 06, 2014
We have worked on numerous projects with Oakland, California-based fine artist Monica Canilao over the years, and one thing we always know when we check in with her is that she is going to be busy on numerous projects. From Detroit, to Miami, to New Orleans, and back to Northern California, Canilao's art and life have fused together in one creative hybrid. We went to Monica's studio to see what she was preparing for her next exhibition at Subliminal Projects in Los Angeles, opening June 7, 2014.

Ryan McGinness "Figure Drawings" @ Pace Prints, NYC

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, May 06, 2014
Ryan McGinness: Figure Drawings is a continuation of the artist’s Women series, which began in 2010. Drawing directly from nude models, McGinness approaches these drawings in the same manner in which he creates his signature undulating and layered icons. He begins with sketches, and refines those drawings down into their basic and most essential forms. In the Women series, the artist simultaneously embraces the inherent sensuality of his models through their graceful lines and gentle curves, while allowing his iconic drawings to be less about the individual woman and more about presentations of universal womanhood.

the work of Mark Cohen

Photography // Tuesday, May 06, 2014
Mark Cohen is often forgotten as one of the most inventive street photographers. It’s easier to make up close images in big cities with crowds. Mark Cohen works in smaller suburban areas in an extremely fragmented and graphic style. He points out the specific things of interest, creating surreal compositions with body parts. Often he seeks out children and youth culture in oddly sexualized images of children in bathing suits or a group of boys sucking on cigarettes and lollipops. The compositions are daring and nightmarish.

The series debuted Molesky’s new series of riot paintings that depict protestors tossing molotov cocktails at unseen adversaries.
