Drawings by Boicu Marinela

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, September 18, 2013
We happened upon some drawings by Romanian artist Boicu Marinela last night and are enjoying the wiry and doodle-like but precise nature of the lines in her work. Marinela studied painting and graphic arts at a school for arts called "Otav bancila."

Birmingham, England Gets a Beautiful New Library

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, September 18, 2013
The Birmingham Library is the largest public library in England and the largest public cultural space in Europe. The beautiful new structure houses over 400,000 books, 240 computers, an art gallery, two cafes, a music library, a performance space, shop, and green outdoor spaces. We say less malls, more libraries, but whose going to listen us...

Watch: Mark Mothersbaugh has a Wild Imagination and Good Advice

Music // Wednesday, September 18, 2013
We are big fans of the mind of Mark Mothersbaugh. From Rugrats to Life Aquatic, and aside from co-founding Devo, the man has composed an absolutely insane amount of music for tv shows and movies and along the way created all kinds of art. In this video for an event at the Ace Hotel & Swim Club, Mothersbaugh talks about his 3am work habits, gives some sagely advice on technology and art, and rocks out with the weirdest presets on an organ. A nice little watch for sure.

Sneak Peek: Ron English "Popagandastan" @ Corey Helford Gallery, opening October 26, 2013

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, September 17, 2013
Our good friend and 2x Juxtapoz cover artist (most recently the November 2012 Political Art issue, a real gem if you ask us) is about to showcase a new series of paintings, Popagandastan, at Corey Helford Gallery in Culver City this October 26, 2013. Just in time for Halloween. And US general elections. And sometimes the world needs English to critique and make it better through his paintings.

Filson: A Factory Tour

Design // Tuesday, September 17, 2013
In our October issue, out now on newsstands, we documented our recent trip to the Filson Factory in Seattle, where the great team took us around the factory floor and showed us how their heritage and artisan bags are constructed. We also got some sneak peeks into their new Seattle Life collection, some classic apparel and Filson advertising, and of course, some of the most beautifully made luggage and day bags being created today. Or 100 years ago. 

The Work of Lu Cong

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, September 17, 2013
We came across some beautiful works by fine artist Lu Cong this morning, and although the majority of the work focues on the faces of the subject, this one piece of the floating women caught our attention the most. Cong was born in Shanghai in 1978, and he moved to the US when he was 11, and interestingly, graduated from the University of Iowa with degrees in Biology and Art in 2000.
