LA Art Show: Tom Dash

Erotica // Thursday, January 23, 2014
Last weekend we took a trip to the LA Art Show to browse the array of galleries, both local and international, and to see what the world had to offer this time. After a near mind melting trip to both Art Basel in Miami and Israel to experience their creative scene, I'd thought that my level of visual inbut had been exhausted- but not quite. The most exciting erotic installation I found at the LA Art Show was by the talents of Tom Dash, with Michael Borgni Fine Art- a rich a provocative collection of acrylic collages on canvas from 2013.

The Surreal Works of Jorge Santos

Juxtapoz // Thursday, January 23, 2014
Looking through our archives this week, we remembered how much we liked the cover story from June 2006 with Portuguese painter, Jorge Santos. We love the way his work is described on his website: "They are not pre-assembled sets such as that of the Realist painter, and any 'photo realist' instances are purely the result of the artist’s skill to portray a likeness."

Juxtapoz x Ebbets Field Flannels Hat

Juxtapoz // Thursday, January 23, 2014
In our current February 2014 issue of our print edition, Juxtapoz traveled to Seattle to visit the new headquarters and studio of Ebbets Field Flannels. A little background: Ebbets has spent the past 25 plus years authentically reproduced some of the great sports apparel that long ceased to exist in America. In recent years, through headwear, jerseys, jackets, and a new found wave of collaboration with brands like J. Crew and PF Flyers, Ebbets Field Flannels is the definition of Made in USA craftsmanship and community. 

Photographs by Zhang Xiao

Photography // Thursday, January 23, 2014
Chinese photographer Zhang Xiao studied Architecture at University and it wasn't until he found an old camera that he discovered his desire to pursue the craft as a career and hobby. While working for the Chongqing Morning Post, Xiao would bring two cameras, one for work and one for his personal photos. Eventually the monotony of the work and job led him to quit and is currently working as a freelance photographer. He has since produced several wonderful projects documenting Chinese culture undergoing societal changes. 

Winter Olympics Posters Through the Ages

Juxtapoz // Thursday, January 23, 2014
With the Sochi Winter Olympics starting next month, we here in the office got to wondering what the promotional materials and posters looked like for the Winter Olympics when they first started in 1924. This lead to us finding some pretty amazing vintage Olympics posters (and lets be honest, some pretty bad ones too...). Enjoy!

The Type Fight

Design // Thursday, January 23, 2014
In the design world competition is a constant, you're always competing with your peers and even yourself to do better. The Type Fight took a more light hearted approach to competition by pitting designers against each other and letting you decide who is best. The only constants are the letterforms each designer must turn into a typographic master piece. The Type Fight's counter part, aptly named the Heavyweight Print Shop, sell each of the master pieces that are chosen for cool 20 bucks, which isn't bad because they're only producing 25 of each.

Juxtapoz // Thursday, January 23, 2014
An exhibition, "For All Mankind: Vintage NASA Photographs 1964-1983," opened at Breese Little in London yesterday.
