Vibe Israel: Klone Studio Visit / Alfred Gallery

Illustration // Monday, December 23, 2013
This past week, as Juxtapoz's illustration editor, I was granted a trip out to Israel to explore the rich cultural and creative landscape in and around Jerusalem and Tel Aviv. I came across the two person show Klone and Meshullam put together at Alfred Gallery, and set up some time to chat with the amazingly accommodating artist Klone in his studio in southern Tel Aviv...

Best of 2013: Fulvio di Piazza, May 2013

Vault // Monday, December 23, 2013
All month, we have been going back to our archvies from both the web and our print edition, finding some of our favorite posts and articles from 2013. Today we look back at an article in our print edition from May 2013, where we featured the amazing surreal paintings of Italian artist, Fulvio di Piazza. For the piece, we had fellow Italian painter Nicola Verlato get inside the head of Mr di Piazza, and because of it, the article gets... well, a little heady...

ROA "Paper Trails" @ White Walls, SF

Juxtapoz // Monday, December 23, 2013
In a surprise when we attended Ferris Plock's opening at White Walls in SF a few weeks back, we saw an amazing, immersive installation created by ROA in the backroom of the gallery. Just stepping into the space was an incredible experience, with so many details and pieces to take in from the constantly traveling Belgian artist. From the press release, its states that Paper Trails is based on "a new collection of animals encountered through the artists' profuse and worldwide travels."

As you may have seen over the past few years, Juxtapoz has teamed up with Converse and a collection of artists in specific cities to create a special Wall to Wall project that appears on the back of our printed magazine each month. Today, we look at the incredible Mike Shine mural created in San Francisco that is featured on the back cover of the October 2013 (Tom Waits) issue. 

Best of 2013: "Back to the Future," Photographs by Irina Werning

Photography // Monday, December 23, 2013
Originally published on May 2, 2013: Buenos Aires-based photographer Irina Werning travelled to 32 countries and shot 250 pictures for her Back to the Future project. "I love old photos. I admit being a nosey photographer. As soon as I step into someone else’s house, I start sniffing for them. Most of us are fascinated by their retro look but to me, it’s imagining how people would feel and look like if they were to reenact them today… Two years ago, I decided to actually do this. So, with my camera, I started inviting people to go back to their future."

The Grand Budapest Hotel: Meet the Cast of Characters

Juxtapoz // Monday, December 23, 2013
It has been very much a Wes Anderson last couple of months with the release of several video essays on each of his films, a fantastic book "The Wes Anderson Collection," and of course the trailer for the much anticipated The Grand Budapest Hotel. Feeding the anticipation, this video gives us a look at the cast of characters from the upcoming film, which recounts the adventures of Gustave H, a legendary concierge at a famous European hotel between the wars, and Zero Moustafa, the lobby boy who becomes his most trusted friend.

Best of 2013: Jake & Dinos Chapman "The Sum of All Evil" @ White Cube Gallery

Juxtapoz // Monday, December 23, 2013
Not that we want to deter you from looking at these images, but no picture will do this exhibition justice. I can go on and on about how intriguing the work is, how the Chapman brothers have perhaps made the biggest noise during Basel week in Hong Kong, but even that would not give enough credit to how incredible the diorama pieces of The Sum of All Evil really are.

Pardee's Picks: Ken Garduno

Juxtapoz // Monday, December 23, 2013
"Amongst the thousands of Instagram accounts overstuffed with puppies hugging piglets, beautiful sunsets in third world countries and Miley Cyrus candids, one account consistently jumps out at me with every post. The owner of this outstanding account is Los Angeles illustrator Ken Garduno. In the daytime, Ken meticulously designs elegant, borderline fine-art illustrations that grace art gallery walls on a regular basis. But at night...  

Vibe Israel: Tal Amitai-Lavi, Chelouche Gallery

Illustration // Sunday, December 22, 2013
I was fortunate enough to spend this past week experiencing the visual art scene in Tel Aviv, Israel and to discover the work of Tal Amitai-Lavi, an Israeli artist (born Israel 1969) who shows with Chelouche Gallery for Contemporary Art. As a multidisciplinary artist, Amitai-Lavi's work straddles the boundary line between the two-dimensional and three-dimensional, and is characterized by love of craftsmanship, sensitivity to detail and an exploration of unusual materials (sewing thread, salt, plasticine, etc....
