Wire Mesh Portraits by Seung Mo Park

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, January 22, 2014
Some people paint portraits, and others (or in this case, one other) cut layer upon layer of wire mesh to create a portrait. Korean artist Seung Mo Park starts with a photograph then superimposes it over layers of wire with a projector, and then starts snipping away! We've posted the impressive wire work of Seungo Mo Park before, examining his flawless sculptures...

Juxtapoz Presents: Silas Hite - Music and Art

Music // Wednesday, January 22, 2014
"When the music in me slows down, I pick up a pen and draw. When the ink begins to flow less easily, I trade the pen for an instrument and resume where I left off with a renewed sense of purpose. It’s a symbiotic relationship between art and music. I feel incredibly fortunate to be able to tap into it and spend my days creating."

Paintings by Marion Lane

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, January 22, 2014
We are enjoying the works of Los Angeles-based artist Marion Lane this morning. 'Though Lane's paintings look something like hybrids between amoeba DNA and corner-shop candies, they contain hints of all the vital ingredients of the city's make-up, from sun and sea to concrete and steel - rendered with such hypnotic appeal that it's hard to look away.'  

Vija Celmins' Limitless Spaces

Illustration // Wednesday, January 22, 2014
Vija Celmins was born in Riga, Latvia, in 1938. She immigrated to the United States with her family when she was ten years old, settling in Indiana. She received a BFA from the John Herron Institute in Indianapolis, and later earned her MFA in painting from the University of California, Los Angeles. Celmins received international attention early on for her renditions of natural scenes—often copied from photographs that lack a point of reference, horizon, or discernable depth of field.

Art, Sex and Octopi: An Interview with Zak Smith

Erotica // Tuesday, January 21, 2014
Zak Smith is a lot of things--artist, writer, porn star, firebrand--and everything he does rings with a consistent kind of brutal, carnal honesty. His graphic, grungy style of drawing is influenced by comic books and alternative porn, and he even completed a series of 100 drawings featuring women and octopi, Dream of the Fisherman's Wife-style. Smith also recently composed a set of tips for art critics, which I'd recommend to anyone who spends time looking at art, critics or not (or are you now?). Zak Smith received his BFA from Cooper Union and his MFA from Yale University (on a loan, long since paid off), and currently lives and works in LA.  

Brock Hofer's Neon Demons

Illustration // Tuesday, January 21, 2014
Brock Hofer is a graphic designer and illustrator living in Canada. His hyper-graphic illustrations of gnarled monsters and neon demons are detailed to an almost sickening degree. Hofer's work shows influences from the skate scene and street art, most notably the work of artists like Skinner and Alex Pardee. His usage of a wide selection of super-saturated colors in tandem with deft, authoritative line-work give these drawings an immense impact.
