Juxtapoz // Tuesday, February 10, 2015
Psychedelic Gravy for the Receptive Mind is a solo exhibition of new works by New York-based artist Sebastian Wahl at Joseph Gross Gallery in NYC. Sebastian Wahl carefully places handmade papers and images between layers and layers of resin. The result is a collage time capsule with real shadows cast within each piece. “Collage is my medium, resin is just the gravy on top”, says the artist. 

The Work of Ruth Marten

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, February 10, 2015
We've posted the work of New York-based artist Ruth Marten before, the dubious accuracy of her drawings on antique etchings always impresses us. Taking these etchings, often of scientific subjects, Marten transforms the imagery into something fantastic and often perverse!

Juxtapoz // Monday, February 09, 2015
Beloved San Francisco artist Rex Ray "left the building" today and somehow managed to post those words on Facebook after he was gone, a testament to the rock star power, humor and good vibes the artist and his work brought to the community and the world.

Pulp Drunk: Mexican Pulp Art from 1960's-1970's @ Ricco/Maresca, NYC

Juxtapoz // Monday, February 09, 2015
An awesome show at Ricco/Maresca in NYC, one that we think Juxtapoz readers will love: "Post-war America saw the rise of the erotic pulp paperback novel covers. The objective of these covers was to lure in potential buyers with the promise of sex, suspense and drama. Simultaneously, a similar type of book and marketing strategy was being developed in Mexico."
