Fashion // Wednesday, August 12, 2015
Recently HUF released a capsule collection with filmmaker and photographer Ari Marcopoulos, whose dossier reads like a class syllabus on icons of contemporary art and hip-hop 101. The HUF collaboration is born out friendship between the prolific lens man and skateboarder and HUF founder, Keith Hufnagel, who go back more than twenty years. We caught up with Marcopoulos to get the back-story.

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, August 12, 2015
"The most difficult thing about creating a painting is going through the process of finding a connection in what I see and feel in the world around me, while also seeking a visual harmony between the beauty and chaos of the human." So says Dave Kinsey, as he prepares his newest solo show, "The Modern Condition," at FFDG in San Francisco on August 14, 2015.

The Regenerative Plans of Patagonia

Fashion // Wednesday, August 12, 2015
Geoff McFetridge grabs my attention. At the local coffee and surf shop a few months back, a mural of Geoff’s work went up, a static mapping of his already brilliant animation about the impressive 100% traceable down standard Patagonia employs for their uber-popular products. The animation got us thinking, not only about the way brands communicate with consumers, but also how the brands we wear everyday wear on the world around us.

Russian Photographer Anton Belovodchenko's "Bodyscapes" Nude Portrait Series

Erotica // Wednesday, August 12, 2015
Anton Belovodchenko’s Bodyscapes series of photographic female nudes document the details of his models’ contorted positions. The portraits are black and white and this simple form allows the viewer to appreciate the female anatomy without distraction. The positions create uncommon imagery such as emphasized spinal columns, prominent ribs or flexed muscles. 

Carl Cashman "An Edited Version of Life" @ Thinkspace Gallery

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, August 12, 2015
Concurrently on view in the Thinkspace project room are new works by UK-based artist Carl Cashman in An Edited Version of Life. Cashman creates vibrant neon colored op-art, a genre he has coined “neometry”, or neon geometry. The works are hypnotic, at times bordering on the hallucinatory, and blur the distinction between digital and analogue forms. Entirely executed by hand, the paintings are crisp, precise and graphically decisive, though clearly hand crafted rather than digitally produced.
