Zine Culture, July 2013

Vault // Tuesday, June 25, 2013
For our July issue, we were excited at the opportunity to dive into the collector culture of Hollywood as well as the artists making waves in the experimental animation and digital worlds. But perhaps the feature that got us most excited was our look into the world of Zine Culture, as we have always felt that Juxtapoz' roots lie in underground comics. Today, we show you the feature that is in our July 2013 issue, "Zine Culture," and talk to the artists who are making some of the best zines today, and carry on a rich tradition that we continue to support and cherish everyday.

Charlie Isoe "In The Bad Bush" @ Lazarides, London

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, June 25, 2013
We are very excited to see that Australian-born, Berlin-based Charlie Isoe (cover artist from April 2010), is back in the exhibition swing. This Friday, June 28, Isoe will open a new solo show, In the Bad Bush, at Lazarides Gallery's Rathbone space in London. As the gallery notes, "After inexplicably vanishing from the art scene for over three years... [Isoe draws] from the isolation of Western Australia to his itinerant youth and lifestyle of abandon, and quickly established himself as a pioneer in his field."

Michele Parliament combines human anatomy and natural scientific illustration to create fascinating surrealist hybrid images. By representing the human anotomy in monochrome and overlaying birds, fish or shells, she gives the impression that the body itself is an environment in which tehse other living beings exist.
