Paintings and Collages by Nadira Husain

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, May 06, 2015

Paris and Berlin-based artist Nadira Husain addresses them in her work, albeit decidedly not from a traditional Western male perspective. Her generally figurative pictures display the influence of both Indian miniatures and the feminist theoretical apparatus. 

The Works of Valery Barykin

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, May 06, 2015
We are quite sure we don't fully understand what the texts say in these illustrations of Valery Barykin, but something we do understand, and something we are fascinated by are the odd pseudo 1950's situations and poses in which the Russian artist shows the women in his works. Add the camera phones with a series of works that are highly influenced by the communist posters of former Soviet Union, and it just get weirder.

Life in the Nude: Dario Campanile

Erotica // Wednesday, May 06, 2015
Born April 21, 1948 in Rome, Dario Campanile started to sketch as a very young child. At the age of six, his talent for art was encouraged with the gift of a small set of watercolors from an uncle, himself a painter. When he was 14, Dario was bedridden with a kidney ailment for three months, and his father gave him his first oil paints to cheer him up. As soon as he began to work with them, there was a sense of familiarity of being able to easily express himself in this medium...

Ink Drawings by Eugene Andolsek

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, May 05, 2015
Using graph paper, a straight edge, a pair of compasses, and self-mixed colored inks, Eugene Andolsek created these wildly colorful and detailed geometric drawings. A stenographer during the day, Andolsek was untrained as an artist and would draw to escape the monotony of daily life while sitting at the kitchen table with his ailing mother. "The release was cathartic and pretty soon he was getting lost in the intricacies of his work and the geometric worlds he created, drawing and coloring for hours on end in a trance." Andolsek passed away in 2008.
