My Morning Jacket and Other Updates with Neil Krug

Photography // Monday, March 16, 2015
Our friend and one-time-featured artist/photographer Neil Krug is no stranger to working in the music world, having shot Lana Del Rey and Bat For Lashes amongst others. We just saw that he is the man behind the new My Morning Jacket album cover (The Waterfall, due out soon), and it gave us the chance to look through some of the newer sun-drenched psychedelic splendor of Krug's recent work. 

The Dripping Hyperreal Paintings of Mike Dargas

Juxtapoz // Monday, March 16, 2015
You know we like a good hyperreal painter here at Juxtapoz... I mean, we made an entire book on the subject in late 2014. We just came across these works by German painter Mike Dargas, and although we were about to throw these in Erotica (I mean, dripping honey and chocolate on women in this context is a little on naughty side). we found the paintings of the tough guys at the end not so much erotic as they were badass and mean. 

Lamar Peterson "Weekend Gardener" @ Fredericks & Freiser, NYC

Juxtapoz // Monday, March 16, 2015
This show came down this past weekend, but Larmar Peterson is making some brilliant paintings. As Fredericks & Freiser note on the show, "Peterson dissects the American dream as he comments on domesticity, masculinity, representations of blackness, and class anxieties.

His evolving practice mimics the narrative of his pieces as he captures movement and transformation, change and balance..."

Nuart Festival on Hypebeast

Street Art // Monday, March 16, 2015
As you know if you follow Juxtapoz Magazine, we spend a week each year in Norway for the Nuart Festival. For the 2014 festival, Nuart founder Martyn Reed was filmed by Hypebeast to capture the essence of not only the festival, but the town of Stavanger, Norway and the concept of bringing and developing art culture on the West Coast of Norway. We think you should watch because Reed gives a succinct message about the positive impacts that any art culture can have on a population regardless of genre.

Everyday Objects With Anna Valdez

But her compositions are unique and her content is clearly personal, with a pervasive element of mystery that keeps catching our eye.

Juxtapoz // Monday, March 16, 2015
Michigan-based artist Yuni Kim Lang's live sculpture "Comfort Hair" is is inspired by the Gache, which is a big wig that was worn by Korean women back in history who were of high social backgrounds. The bigger and heavier the wigs were, the more beautiful and aesthetic they were. "My vision was to see hair in the way we fantasize about it...
