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.

Update: Drawings from Daniel Horowitz

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, January 21, 2014
Daniel Horowitz sat down at his desk and began, with no particular purpose or direction, drawing on a blank piece of paper. That piece of paper turned into two, three, four, and eventually 365. A mixed media artist, Daniel's work has been featured in The New York Times, GQ, and The Wall Street Journal. He is now the cover illustrator for The American Reader. His 365 Series has been turned into a book (a limited print of 365 copies of course). 

High-Speed Footage of People Waiting for the Train

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, January 21, 2014
For his "Stainless" series, photographer Adam Magyar rides the train through busy train stations, using a high speed camera to capture people waiting to board the train. The result, when played back at a normal frame rate is "an endless row of living sculptures brought together by the same subway line, the same direction, the same intention of taking the train to get caught and carried away by the urban flow. All their motions slowed down, they are graceful and stainless, holding their breath waiting for their train to pull into the station."

"Calculation" Drawings by Rafael Araujo

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, January 21, 2014
Using only a pencil, ruler and protractor, Venezuelan artist Rafael Araujo creates these beautiful renderings of the three dimensional space butterflies occupy and the mathematical spirals of sea shells. 

The Works of Colin Chillag

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, January 21, 2014
A graduate of the San Francisco Art Institute, we are enjoying these deconstructed portraits from Colin Chillag. At some points complete, and at times appearing to be in process, Chillag constructs these pieces like passing memories, where certain details remain but others fleeting.

Traffic Light Series by Lucas Zimmermann

Juxtapoz // Monday, January 20, 2014
Ah, to be 20 years old with really good ideas and execution. Wish we could say that was us, but then we see works like this from Landau and Weimar, Germany-based photographer Lucas Zimmermann, and we know we were still amateur at that age. All these shots were taken of traffic lights in the fog near Weimar, Germany.
