Sheryo Draws in Black and White

Illustration // Wednesday, April 09, 2014
Sheryo is a Brooklyn based artist from Singapore who paints imperfect gnarly characters that are calming to disoriented souls, and might cause skitter skatter explosions in the brain. She has exhibited and painted in LA, Seoul, Indonesia, Singapore, Thailand, Malaysia, Cambodia, Mexico, Australia and Vietnam since 2008. This collection of her monochrome drawings give a good example of the wild, urban imagery Sheryo has been pumping out in her street work. 

Wrinkled Paintings by Stefania Fersini

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, April 09, 2014
Creating an interesting wrinkled, crumpled paper effect while using oil on canvas, Stefania Fersini recreates photoreal fashion magazine portraits as a comment on excess and waste. "I’m fed up of going fast, tired of the excesses and superficiality. I need to paint to slow down. I take time off, to meditate, to fast from what is too much. To contemplate beauty, where there is some. I copy because the solution to excess is not to create 'new'."

Collage Works from Javier Pinon

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, April 09, 2014
'My work has had a tendency to be a bit autobiographical. Not literally, but under the surface. My reality or state of mind at the time that the collages are made is reflected in the psychology of the work and the stories it tells. For example, the Minotaur was at one time an important personal symbol. I won’t get into the details, but it was a very difficult period of my life and I felt a strong connection and sympathy for this very tragic, and in my mind misunderstood, creature...'

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, April 08, 2014
All year long, Juxtapoz is celebrating its 20th Anniversary by showcasing the pivotal figures in contemporary art over the past two decades. Some artists are blue chip, some are underground heroes, others are behind-the-scenes legends. This month, we honor one of the great artists from Los Angeles during our existence, Alexis Ross, who has been monumental in various landmark exhibitions including "Street Market" at Art In the Streets.

Anna Sörenson "Neverending Index" @ Ed. Varie, NYC

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, April 08, 2014
Ed. Varie is pleased to present Neverending Index, a solo-exhibition of recent work by artist Anna Sörenson, with opening reception on Thursday April 10th from 6-9pm. Neverending Index is a conceptual project that began in 2010 exploring the ideas of painting with water based media, collage, and text. The work explores a narrative that is more than an ordinary scrupulous examination of one's consciousness but also a reflection of Sörenson 's process and the relationship between mediums.

Metal Cats

Photography // Tuesday, April 08, 2014
Photographer Alexandra Crockett has created a series of photographs titled “Metal Cats”where she has photographed members of the hardcore metal music scene with their cats. The photographs depict the visual contrast between the extreme personas of each person and the cuddly cuteness of their pets. The work shows that even though her subjects look intimidating and abrasive, they also have a softer side.

These two squared pieces by Horfe are bizarre and more abstract than usual, but they look awesome paired next each other. 

Chris Labrooy's "Flight Intestine"

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, April 08, 2014
This isn't the first time we have come across Chris Labrooy's work and wished that his digital renderings were real, physical sculptures. Chris has exhibited at the design museum in London and been featured in various publications, exploring CGI as a creative medium in itself which he could subvert and twist familiar everyday things into new typographic and sculptural form. He is interested in the intersection between typography, architecture, product design and visual art.

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, April 08, 2014
We saw these wallpaper designs and thought hmm…the Juxtapoz office could use a makeover. Here Studio Job revisited their archive to design a unique collection of wallpaper for Dutch brand NLXL. Founders Job Smeets and Nynke Tynagel scoured their archive of drawings, icons, images, and patterns to create the nine-metre running pieces without a single repeated composition.
