Street Art // Thursday, October 24, 2013
As we reported yesterday, Brooklyn-based artist, Swoon, has been enlisted as the next artist to paint the famed wall at Houston and Bowery in New York. In just the last 24 hours, Swoon has already moved very far along applying her wheatpastes in what will be a Hurricane Sandy-themed piece. We will keep you posted on the process throughout the week.

The last of the 3 exhibitions we saw this past Saturday night at Jonathan LeVine Gallery in NYC was longtime Juxtapoz photography contributor and sculpture artist, Adam Wallacavage. Magic Mountain is a mixture of Wallacavage's now famed mixed media chandeliers and sculpture works, as well as the artist's first limited-edition multiple.

"Damage Control: Art and Destruction Since 1950" @ Hirshhorn Museum, Washington, D.C

Juxtapoz // Thursday, October 24, 2013
This looks to be a fantastic show, opening today in our nation's capital, with a special lecture this Saturday, October 26, featuring Yoko Ono and Raphael Montañez Ortiz, "participants in the original 1966 Destruction in Art Symposium; artist Monica Bonvicini; and art historian Dario Gamboni will explore the ways in which artists have used destruction as a means of responding to cultural and social issues."

Ravi Zupa "Hard Dream" @ Subliminal Projects, Los Angeles

Juxtapoz // Thursday, October 24, 2013
We have been big fans of Ravi Zupa over the years, and are really excited to see what the Denver-based artist's new works will look like when Subliminal Projects in LA opens Zupa's exhibition, Hard Dream, this Saturday, October 26. Amazingly, this is his first solo in LA, and we think the beginning of many to come... 

Update: The Work of Tenmyouya Hisashi

Juxtapoz // Thursday, October 24, 2013
Tokyo-based artist Tenmyouya Hisashi began his career as a contemporary artist after working as an art director at a record label. He calls his work 'Neo Nihonga,' meaning Neo Japanese Painting. This comes from his bringing together of traditional Japanese art with Western learning and Hip-Hop influences.

The Oil and Watercolor Works by Silvia Pelissero

Juxtapoz // Thursday, October 24, 2013
Or should we say, the works of Agnes Cecile, because Silvia goes by that name as well. We are into the works of the Italian artist this morning, who was born in Rome in 1991. The works drip and bleed onto figurative characters, with almost rainbow blasts and dreams come to life. 

Siggi Eggertsson's "Skvís" @ Spark Design Space, Reykjavik

Juxtapoz // Thursday, October 24, 2013
We'd be more than okay with having a room of our house plastered from floor to ceiling in the patterns of Berlin-based artist Siggi Eggertsson. His latest show at the Spark Design Space in Reykjavik is just that. Born in Iceland, Eggertsson's passion for computers and drawing first led him to graphic design, an education in fine art, a shift in focus to drawing, and eventually Big Active.

Drawings by Ataru Sato

Juxtapoz // Thursday, October 24, 2013
We love these incredibly intricate drawings by Japanese artist Ataru Sato. Heavily influenced by the work of the legendary Keiichi Taanami, he studied at Kyoto University of Art and Design where Taanami teaches, often seeking out his advice.  Ataru is represented by Gallery Koyanagi in Tokyo.

Abstract Paintings by Mark Stebbins

Juxtapoz // Thursday, October 24, 2013
We are very much enjoying the work of Toronto-based artist Mark Stebbins this morning. His dense, abstract compositions combine references to the domains of craft, fine art and digital imaging. Rather than use a computer, Stebbins creates his images by hand, opting for an organic, personal and labor-intenstive method, providing a metaphor "for the cultural information transmitted via both traditional craft labor and contemporary electronic visual practices.

Illustrations by Karan

Juxtapoz // Thursday, October 24, 2013
The fun and quirky illustrations of Australian, New York-based illustrator Karan are brightening our morning. Much like ours, Karan's philosophy on creating and illustration is to keep evolving and exposing himself to as many new things as possible. His clients have included Intel, MTV, Nickelodeon, and many more!
