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.

Jean Leblanc's Illustrations

Illustration // Thursday, January 02, 2014
Jean Leblanc's work draws inspiration from the Surrealist movement in an upbeat contemporary manner. These illustrations are fraught with dripping faces, pipes, optical illusions and strange chromey surfaces. These are visual mind games, a playful place to spend a little time testing your eye.

Kicking off the New Year at Thinkspace Gallery this weekend will be two great shows, Seamus Conley & Henrik Aa. Uldalen are together for "In Limbo," while Elliot Brown will open "Abramelin" in the project room. All artists touch on hyperrealism, but with a haunting, dark, mythical backdrop.

Drawings by Randy Colosky

Juxtapoz // Thursday, January 02, 2014
We start off the new year by taking a look at the drawings of Oakland, California-based artist, Randy Colosky. His ink on paper drawings create a free-formed vortex of architectural design, texture and space. Randy's sculptures, drawings, and installations have been shown in solo, group, and site specific installations across the country.

New Year Doublevision with Horyon Lee

Juxtapoz // Thursday, January 02, 2014
Horyon Lee's blurred motion, "doublevision" paintings are reminding us that as we all head back to work, school and our lives after the holidays and new year, we should keep a clear head but not forget to continually nurture an imagination.  

A look back at "Ulysses" by Miles Donovan

Juxtapoz // Thursday, January 02, 2014
We first saw the Ulysses series by Miles Donovan in London back in 2012 and thought we would take a look back at the fantastic collages, a "series of images from the missing space probe Ulysses." Great collage ideas, juxtaposing images of deep space with those of both the common tourist and street scenes. Perhaps we will see some space tourists in 2014...
