Mario Wagner, Thomas Pynchon, Jonathan Lethem and the NY Times Sunday Book Review

Juxtapoz // Thursday, September 19, 2013
We are huge fans of Mario Wagner, books, the New York Times, the New York Times Sunday Book Review, Jonathan Lethem, and especially, Thomas Pynchon. All these things came together this past weekend: Wagner did two illustrations to accompany Lethem's essay on Pynchon's new novel, "Bleeding Edge," in the Sunday Review. All is well in the universe.

Music // Thursday, September 19, 2013
In celebration of our October 2013 issue featuring Tom Waits, John Baldessari and the photographs of Anton Corbijn, we have been re-watching some of our favorite of his music videos. Over the years Waits has worked with a slew of directors, from his old friend Jim Jarmusch to his most recent ones with Jesse Dylan and Matt Mahurin. Take a look and a listen after the jump!

Aaron Rose "Cults" @ Circle Culture Gallery, Berlin

Juxtapoz // Thursday, September 19, 2013
Curator and artist Aaron Rose just opened his new solo show, Cults, at Circle Culture Gallery in Berlin. The show marks the last exhibition at the current location of the Berlin gallery, and Rose has chosen a theme of California's long history with infamous cults. Oh, wait, we do like cults here don't we?

Erik Thor Sandberg's Classical Bodies

Erotica // Thursday, September 19, 2013
Erik Thor Sandberg's work depicts secular scenes of vice and virtue with an artist's hand delicate and capable enough to match the masters. These sexy, thought-provoking images of women evoke historical and fantasy narratives often explored in art, yet they take on a mysterious tenor in these renderings. Sandberg renders the human body with classical eloquence and contemporary flair. 

Portraits by Ian Ingram

Juxtapoz // Thursday, September 19, 2013
We are enjoying Ian Ingram's cold portraits this morning. In his most recent work the New York-based artist has been exploring and depicting an element of his psyche and pairing it next to its opposite polarity. 

OMG! OMG! OMG!

Graffiti // Wednesday, September 18, 2013
It would be difficult to find a better billboard to paint, ever.  This is the kind of advertising that promotes fender benders. Manipulated by Enron for a collaboration between VTS and HUF. 

Opening: Barry McGee @ Cheim & Read Gallery, NYC

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, September 18, 2013
We had the pleasure of attending the opening reception of the San Francisco born and raised artist Barry McGee. This is the artist’s first solo show with Cheim & Read Gallery and also his first show in NYC in 8 years. The multi-layered compositions that McGee builds on-site are visually stimulating, brightly-colored, and its multiplicity meld together to create an unrepeatable identity.

Stanley Donwood... On Trees

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, September 18, 2013
Yesterday, we showed you a preview of Stanley Donwood's new show, Far Away is Close at Hand in Images of Elsewhere, opening that London's The Outsiders gallery on September 20, 2013. When we were looking at the new work, we started seeing a theme... a theme that has entered Donwood's work with Radiohead and the King Of Limbs LP: trees! Lots of lonely, ghostly, reaching, bare trees. So we asked Mr Donwood... what's up with the trees?

Peter Saville to Re-image Kanye West

Music // Wednesday, September 18, 2013
Before everyone gets all in a huffy about Kanye West and the fact that they think he is an egotistical megalomaniac, we are going to just agree to disagree with you and enjoy the fact that Mr. West has, over the course of his career, collaborated and been art directed by people like Murakami, Kaws, Morning Breath, George Condo, and now, it appears he will be working with legendary graphic artist, Peter Saville.
