Olaf Breuning "The Life" @ Metro Pictures, NYC

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, June 17, 2015
In our May 2011 issue, we had a blast interviewing a group of artists who had never been in the magazine or website before. It was a fun project, one that inroduced us to amazing artists like Eric Yahnker, Hilary Pecis, Old Boys Club, and of course, the genius of Olaf Breuning.

The show is up through July 31, 2015.

Mu Pan's Illustrations of Plague and Battle

Illustration // Wednesday, June 17, 2015
We've discussed illustrator Mu Pan's work before. His dark work implies stories, not simply static images. They show dismal battles, fantastical for their participants who are often animals and imaginary creatures.
