Juxtapoz // Thursday, September 24, 2015
Japanese erotic art from the 1600s to the 1800s, known as Shunga, is popular outside of Japan, but was banned for most of the 20th century in Japan.

The Work of Chad Coombs

Photography // Thursday, September 24, 2015
Chad Coombs, a fine art photographer from Saskatoon, Canada, appoints Richard Avedon as one of his idols and his photographic inspiration. He therefore also seeks with his photographs to shake up and disturb the viewer, but above all he wants to encourage him to think and feel. His work is supposed to appeal to the viewer and have an effect on him, but not to impose a particular view. Coombs is more interested in the feelings, which are hidden behind a photograph.

Tim Okamura & Chris Marshall "Begin Transmission"

Juxtapoz // Thursday, September 24, 2015
"Begin Transmission" is a two-person exhibition at Be Electric Studio featuring individual and collaborative artworks from Tim Okamura and Chris Marshall that investigates the power and importance of visual, linguistic, and spiritual communication between male and female assertions; between people of diverse ethnic backgrounds in a time of strife and social injustice; between tangibly physical and ethereal entities, and, of course, between the artists themselves.

The Art of LE GUN

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, September 23, 2015
Who is LE GUN? Their online presence is cryptic at best and their print media leans toward a cult aesthetic. In 2004, they began as an art collective and have since created a self-titled magazine—filled with bold typography and ink illustrations. They’ve gained international recognition and have shown their work in installations and gallery shows, as well as taking on paid illustration clients.

Shen Wei's Nude Self

Erotica // Wednesday, September 23, 2015
In his series, I Miss You Already, photographer Shen Wei explores the intersections of identity, desire, nature and reflection. The series is composed of self portraits taken over several years and the scenery varies dramatically from image to image. At times, other subjects enter Wei’s aperture, but these characters are always peripheral to the work, which continues to burrow into the self.
