David Shrigley @ Anton Kern Gallery, NYC

Juxtapoz // Friday, April 17, 2015
In his sixth solo show at Anton Kern Gallery, British artist David Shrigley presents 78 drawings, two sculptures and one animation. The drawings, ink and acrylic on paper in two distinct sizes, depict a variety of situations involving humans, animals, parts of their bodies and other stuff. The sculptures are of two oversized objects, a subtractor (a calculator with limited function keys), and a working telephone that is hooked up to the gallery’s main phone line. The animation in the back gallery is a drawn and slightly altered version of the Sega arcade game, Out Run.

TED PUSHINSKY "Fifty Years of San Francisco Street Photography" @ Mark Wolfe, SF

Photography // Friday, April 17, 2015
Mark Wolfe Contemporary is pleased to present “Fifty Years of San Francisco Street Photography,” an exhibition of never-before-seen images from veteran street photographers Maury Edelstein and Ted Pushinsky, the City’s reigning elder statesmen of the genre. Today, we look at a selection of photos from Ted Pushinsky, who has been in Juxtapoz Magazine in the past. What is cool about this show is that both photographers had never met or encountered one another’s work until this show.

The Dramatic Works in Water by Tomohide Ikeya (NSFW)

Juxtapoz // Friday, April 17, 2015
We aren't sure about you, but the fear of drowning overwhelms us. Maybe its living by the ocean all our lives, maybe its watching Jaws at the wrong age, or perhaps just the fact that the ocean is a scary ass place where nature always wins. Tomohide Ikeya is an incredible photographer who creates intense scenarios with the help of models and actors that have us both intrigued and stressed in the same breath. This selection is across three series, Wave, Breath, and Moon. To call some of these death shots is sort of an uncomfortable title, but the nudity and odd peace of some of the subjects is quite intense. 

The Digital Glamour of Marcelo Monreal

Juxtapoz // Friday, April 17, 2015
We are enjoying the (UN) Bonded Project of collages by Marcelo Monreal, mainly because we too get a little bored of the typical fashion shoot. These are fun interpretations and remixes of fashion shoots, with a little floral vibe thrown in... 

Eric Yahnker: New Works In 2015

Juxtapoz // Thursday, April 16, 2015
Because Hillary Clinton has decided that she is going to go for it in 2016 (man, we are already at this point, didn't Obama get elected last month? What year is it? Nevermind... ), we wanted to honor her by showing our readers former cover artist Eric Yahnker's tribute to the Democrat. She looks prepped for Colorado, doesn't she? The piece is so perfectly titled "Trillary Clinton." We are sold. No campaign needed. 

David Lynch thinks graffiti ruined the world

Graffiti // Thursday, April 16, 2015
“Graffiti to me has pretty much ruined the world,” said David Lynch recently and that’s when we took Lynch off that pedestal we held him up on for so long. “It’s ruined it for film. When you go to a place to film, everything is graffitied so if you don’t want it, you have to paint it out. So much great architecture is graffitied over, so many great train stations, factories, are graffitied over, and it’s a horrible, horrible thing. Trees have gone away and graffiti has taken their place,” Lynch says.
