The Work of Dave Cooper

Juxtapoz // Monday, August 12, 2013
This morning we thought we would take a look back at the work of Ottawa-based artist Dave Cooper before. Dave enjoyed a successful career in the American underground comic scene of the late 1990s as the author and illustrator of award-winning graphic novels as well as a designer, producer and creator in the field of animation. Dave was part of Juxtapoz' 18th birthday exhibition back in 2012.

Rubiks Cube Art by Cube Works Studio

Juxtapoz // Monday, August 12, 2013
We have embarrasingly never actually solved a Rubik's cube. Cube Works Studio has taken the Rubik's cube and turned it into incredible works of art but intricately twisting the colors into the correct pattern and laying hundreds of them out to create portraits!

Heather Hansen's "Emptied Gestures"

Juxtapoz // Monday, August 12, 2013
Heather Hansen uses performance, her body, movement, and charcoal and pastel to create her large-scale drawings. By moving her joints, extending her back, stretching and contracting, Heather creates drawings. Her latest project, 'Emptying Gestures,' "is an experiement in kenitect drawing." She says, "I am searching for ways to download my movement directly onto paper, emptying gestures from one form to another and reating something new in the process."

The Mind Melting work of Flakonkishochki

Illustration // Sunday, August 11, 2013
Lets take a trip into the psychedellic brain of Andrey Kasay aka  Flakonkishochki (which literally translates to “BottleOfBowels”). His conceptual illustration is laced with hyper-sexual pups, businessmen, surreal tendencies and of course, meat. New favorite from a reader submission. This is borderline questionable for work... let that be you warning. Thanks Andrey!!

Sand Calligraphy by Andrew Van Der Merwe

Street Art // Sunday, August 11, 2013
Using writing instruments specifically for sand and techniques learned from over 20 years of being a calligrapher, CapeTown, South Africa artist, Andrew Van Der Merwecreates elegant sand drawings. Speaking on his practice, "The work is usually very temporal, often lasting no more than an hour before it is taken by the wind or the tide. I carve the letters in the sand using various instruments and then photograph them with my Nikon D700. I leave no footprints and the tide leaves me with a clean slate.”

Music // Friday, August 09, 2013
Juxtapoz is on the ground at the annual Outside Lands Music and Art Festival held in San Francisco's Golden Gate Park each August (and that would be Aug 9-11 this year), and again for the third year, we have curated the art portion of the event. This year, we have Mike Shine, Dennis McNett, and Camille Rose Garcia created site-specific installations, but of course, there is a ton of music, and today we are showcasing some of the best music that we might be seeing today... let's gander... 

Embroidered Architecture by Stephanie Clark

Juxtapoz // Friday, August 09, 2013
Salt Lake City-based artist Stephanie Clark paints with thread. "The process of transforming string into art struck me as something visually stimulating with complexity." Referring to it as her "way down the rabbit hole," Clark has created a system of sweing the threads in a sequence that ultimately "gives the illusion of a certain vaule or color. The direction in which the threads are sewn mimic the way the lines are layred in a drawing to give the hint of depth, volume, and form."
