Peter Saul "From Pop to Punk" @ Venus Over Manhattan, NYC

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, March 10, 2015
VENUS OVER MANHATTAN is pleased to present FROM POP TO PUNK, paintings from the ’60s and ’70s by renowned painter PETER SAUL, on view at 980 Madison beginning February 25, 2015. Saul’s politically charged, and often politically incorrect, paintings are rooted in a system of removal from the artist’s beliefs, void of morals and ambivalent in their politics. Saul sources imagery from popular culture and current and historical events for his cartoonish and surreal depictions. The resulting paintings of the grotesque are more akin to social commentary than clear political statements.

Mark Gonzales x Curtis Kulig and Simone Shubuck Posters

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, March 10, 2015
One of the things that we snatched up while amongst the overwhelming but wonderful rooms filled of zines, books, prints, and art at the LA Art Book Fair last month was a Paul Wackers poster from The Posters, a new company based in Los Angeles that sells beautifully made posters by emerging and established international artists. And when each poster is sold, a portion of the proceeds to arts education groups to pay for art classes for underserved youth in American cities.
