The Popular Workshop x Francesco Igory Deiana

Illustration // Wednesday, October 09, 2013
An exclusive conversation between The Popular Workshop and Francesco Igory Deiana on his current show 'Free Fall', currently on display in San Francisco based gallery The Popular Workshop. 'The name of my show is "Free Fall" Like the act of free falling, your letting yourself, your body, spirit, ego; you are letting it all go...'

The Works of Alex Kopps

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, October 09, 2013
It feels like we have been following the work of Alex Kopps for years, but finally, in our new November 2013 issue, we have an exclusive interview with the ... well, elusive artist. Kopps has done a bunch of work in and with Mollusk Surf Shop, a ton of surf art, a ton of fine art, video, photography, and other forms of documentation... and we just get our own creative juices flowing when we see his work. Get the issue, and perhaps look at Kopps' eclectic work. 

Embroidery and Drawings by Caroline Hwang

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, October 09, 2013
We haven't checked in with the work of Caroline Hwang in quite some time, and we just noticed she has been creating these fantastic embroidery illustrations recently. The Brooklyn-based artist has been doing work for the NY Times, New York Magazine, RVCA, and Starbucks in Taiwan... which means that Starbucks in Taiwan is up to some good stuff. 

Preview: Casey Gray "Tropic" @ White Walls, SF

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, October 09, 2013
An artist whose shows seem to get better and better, we are looking forward to checking out Casey Gray's new work, Tropic, opening at White Walls Gallery in SF on Saturday, October 12, 2013. The idea of the show is a hypothetical vacation. Each work goes from sourced internet material, to digital sketch, to acrylic on panel. Go check it. 

Evan Roth "View In Room" @ XPO Gallery, Paris

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, October 09, 2013
Still trying to figure out what Mr. Roth will be presenting in his first Paris solo show, View in Room, opening on October 10  at Xpo Gallery, but his new Vine videos and tweets are starting to unveil the look. Here is the gist of the show from one of the best multimedia artists working today: The title View In Room comes from a common feature of art-for-sale websites that allows the user to view a piece of art on a virtual wall. This collection attempts to more thoughtfully engage in bringing Internet-influenced art offline... 

IN L.A.: TIM BISKUP'S "CHARGE" @ MARTHA OTERO GALLERY

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, October 09, 2013
We recently stopped by Martha Otero Gallery for the opening reception of “Charge,” Tim Biskup’s latest solo exhibition. Taken back by this new body of work, Biskup never ceases to amaze us with his constant natural progression throughout the years. Biskup seems to take a fearless approach with his artistic evolution, and somehow does it flawlessly.

Wooden Shark Coffins by Handsome Wong

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, October 09, 2013
A clever social awareness campaign from Handsome Wong of Y&R Shanghai: A shark-sized coffin with protruding fins! The campaign is meant to emphasize the mass killings of sharks. Over 73 million of the species are killed every year for soup. Their fins (which only make up 2% of their total weight) are brutally sliced off and the rest is tossed back into the ocean. 

"Dignity," Photographs by Bence Bakonyi

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, October 09, 2013
This morning we take a look at Hungarian photographer Bence Bakonyi's "Dignity" series, a reflection on the artists' view of himself. "I cannot escape from the fact that I struggle with myself. It has always been a difficult question for me: do I know him? Who is he anyway" It's so alluring, sometimes as if the will of the body would want to swallow me, leaving my thoughts behind...

Sculptural Ceramics by Nuala O'Donovan

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, October 09, 2013
Combining regular pattern with the characteristics of irregular patterns and forms from nature, Irish artist Nuala O'Donovan carefully constructs her work over a period of weeks or months and the finished forms are "a result of an intuitive response to the direction that the pattern takes as well as the irregularity in the handmade elements of the pattern."

Music Video: Tyler, The Creator "Tamale"

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, October 09, 2013
Earlier this year we saw an unlikely but perfect match for an album cover: Tyler, the Creator teamed up with Mark Ryden. Directed by Wolf Haley, Tyler's latest video sees that album cover turned into a set in addition to several other highly entertaining scenes from the always imaginative and bizarre mind of the Odd Future frontman.
