In the Magazine: Guy Bourdin's Son Sets the Record Straight

Fashion // Thursday, March 12, 2015
Guy Bourdin was a painter and legendary fashion photographer whose style has been pervasively appropriated in pop culture. Mentored by Man Ray, he avoided the limelight, focusing strictly on the creation of arresting pictures. Despite staging surreal mise en scènes for high-end brands like Vogue, fashion was the last thing on his mind. On the occasion of a current retrospective of Bourdin’s work, his son, Samuel, revealed the truth about his father, an artist who is legitimately known as one of the twentieth century’s best fashion photographers.

Oil Paintings of Carpets by Antonio Santin

Juxtapoz // Thursday, March 12, 2015
Spanish artist Antonio Santin's collection paintings of human bodies (we assume) hidden under ornate tapestries are rather haunting. His process involves projecting a photograph onto the wall and manipulating the size and proportion as he paints. He is currently on exhibit at Marc Straus Gallery in NYC.

Juxtapoz // Thursday, March 12, 2015
In a roundabout way, we come to new the Phaidon collection, Akademie X: Lessons in Art + Life; an “inspirational and practical guide on how to live a creative life written by the world’s most thought-provoking artists.” Abramović, Miranda July, Neo Rauch, and Olafur Eliasson are just a few of the artists who contribute tutorials on artistic processes for the book, and emphasize the creation of personal philosophy. A life book.

What’s next for Nekst?

Graffiti // Wednesday, March 11, 2015
The historic building at 190 Bowery in Manhattan has long served as a canvas for graffiti writers and street artists since the ‘80s. Many of the names that adorn the building are from people who have long past but once had their name everywhere in the city. Of all the people who painted it, without a doubt Nekst made the biggest impact with his absurd sized street level straight letter...

Matthew Craven @ Art On Paper

Illustration // Wednesday, March 11, 2015
One of our favorite booths during all the Armory Week fairs last week was Matthew Craven's work at Art On Paper in the FMLY booth. We have shown and been fans of Craven's work in the past, but this collection was exceptionally strong, with a great mix of ink on found paper and collage works that we hope to be covering in the print edition soon.
