Furniture Imitates Art

Juxtapoz // Friday, January 03, 2014
Furniture imitates art! Jinil Park, a South Korean designer, has created steel wire furniture that look like rough line sketches. "The key point of my work is the moments where the line is distorted," said Jinil Park. "They express the designer’s feeling, status, and emotion."

Photographs by Victoria Crayhon

Photography // Friday, January 03, 2014
'I place phrases on movie and motel marquee signs, many of which I find through research but also in the course of my frequent long distance travel by car. I use my own sign letters, installing them while filming the placing of the phrases and then leaving the scene with words left intact upon the sign. Afterward I make my photograph of the finished sign from the sidewalk or roadside, shooting from the vantage point of the driver or pedestrian.' 

Jesse Hazelip's "Love Lock: Cycle of Violence" @ Jonathan Levine Gallery

Street Art // Thursday, January 02, 2014
In preparation for his first solo exhibition in New York entitled “”Love Lock: Cycle of Violence,” Jesse Hazelip boldy acquired three tattoos on his eyebrows and the back of his forearms and head. Each of these tattoos corresponds with his exhibition that will explore themes of injustices within our legal system and underlying corruption in the prison industrial complex. For the opening reception, Hazelip will be occupying a replicated site-specific jail cell made of plexiglass that will be built to the size of a solitary confinement unit (six by nine feet). 

REVOK: Book Signing @ MOCA, January 4, 2014

Juxtapoz // Thursday, January 02, 2014
We have been covering REVOK in Juxtapoz for years, both in print and online, and have loved seeing the evolution of his work as the longtime Los Angeles-based artist moved to Detroit a few years back. The result has been a fascinating and growing collection of 3D collages of found materials. Revok's new book, "Made In Detroit," will be celebrating at MOCA on January 4, 2014 with a book signing event.

Misaki Kawai, August 2012

Vault // Thursday, January 02, 2014
Misaki Kawai has always been a favorite on the Juxtapoz staff because her work can transform spaces from a white walled gallery into a wild world of playful imagination. Her works at first appear kid friendly, bright and colorful and inviting. Her installations are larger than life cartoons come to life, a sketchbook of ideas that transform into a special universe you can live in. This is our interview with the artist from August 2012, by our contributing editor, Kristin Farr.
