Nosego "Open Channels" @ Thinkspace Gallery

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, July 15, 2014
Concurrently on view at Thinkspace are new works by Philadelphia based artist Yis Goodwin, aka Nosego, in Open Channels. A highly accomplished fine artist, illustrator, and street artist, Nosego’s works are visionary. Simultaneously totemic and whimsical, the artist’s imagery seamlessly combines the flippancy and play of humor with the suggestion of an imposing, even mythically ancient, source of animalistic power. Imaginatively beautiful and strangely grotesque, Nosego captures a myriad of conflicting...

The San Francisco streets as seen by Troy Holden

Photography // Tuesday, July 15, 2014
A self-proclaimed “snapshot photographer”, Troy Holden walks miles and miles of San Francisco to create his street snapshots. Holden’s style is graphic and balanced, with each composition wonderfully crafted around characters moving through their environment. These bold portraits are grounded in quiet moments where seemingly empty sidewalks hold only the subject, Troy, and his camera.

LAMU by Mathieu Grimard

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, July 15, 2014
Enjoy this striking music video directed by Mathieu Grimard. Titled LAMU featuring the musical talent of Montreal-based band Rivver, where individual stories are strung together seen through various façades. As described, “every person and every eye is shown behind a surface: glass, plastic, water, etc. It’s an outside-in view on all these characters.” Filmed from careful angles with a stunning view on each framed face, Grimard creates a surreal emotional dreamland that beautifully unifies and reflects off each other.

Animal Body Art by Gesine Marwedel

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, July 15, 2014
From a flamingo to a pelican, an owl to a swan Gesine Marwedel paints these animals and more on nude figures. After perfectly positioning the models limbs, the soft lines and brush strokes come together to complete the shape of each creature. Each figure is then photographed as partners and individuals hold a nude, yoga-like, comparably contortionist pose to create the illusion of the natural characteristic curvatures of the animals. Against a background of a black or white negative space, the images jump out at you as if the animals were in their natural habitats.

Gregg Segal: 7 Days of Garbage

Photography // Tuesday, July 15, 2014
Just like your pets, friends, house, or the clothes you wear, your garbage can speak volumes about who you are. We don’t usually linger on the thought of our trash, or think about what our trash says about us. We throw it away and it disappears from sight as the garbage truck rolls through the neighborhood, letting us forget about it entirely. Despite the heavy reek of rot emitting from the tied black bags, and once we break them open and observe the items it surprisingly reveals our personalities and certain lifestyles.

The Creative Class: Stefan Sagmeister

Design // Monday, July 14, 2014
Instead of some flashy video interview with some overarching complex concept, you just want the goods. And this video with internationally renowned designer Stefan Sagmeister of Sagmeister & Walsh is just those goods: an artist talking his craft, showing you his studio, give you a little morning inspiration. And the fact that WeTransfer is producing this Creative Class series is a really good, smart idea.
