Hyperrealistic Portraits by Bryan Drury

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, November 19, 2013
This morning we feature the strange the hyperreal paintings of New York-based artist Bryan Drury. Stemming from a desire to challenge the conventions of traditional portraiture, Drury carefully selected affluent members of society to sit for him, and rather than acquiescing to expectations of flattery, he exploits the power of oil paint to describe their corporeal flaws as precisely as possible. Finding liberation in this reversal of patronage roles, Drury focuses on the organic quality of the flesh and shows the animalistic side of humans that we so commonly attempt to conceal.

We love this series of digital sculptures by Chris Labrooy titled "Auto Aerobics." Chris has exhibited at the design museum in London and been featured in various publications, exploring CGI as a creative medium in itself which he could subvert and twist familiar everyday things into new typographic and sculptural form. He is interested in the intersection between typography, architecture, product design and visual art.

The Art Of Sean Newport

Juxtapoz // Monday, November 18, 2013
We were lucky enough to spend the weekend at West Coast Craft here in San Francisco, we were also lucky enough to become familiar with San Francisco's very own Sean Newport. Newport creates these three-dimensional works by hand cutting geometric shapes and tiling them together to create peaks and valley's faced with electric colors and mesmerizing patterns. See an awesome collection of Newport's work after the jump.

SHAG's "Pink Elephants" @ Corey Helford Gallery

Juxtapoz // Monday, November 18, 2013
On Saturday, November 23, 2013 Corey Helford Gallery will be presenting Josh Agle's (aka SHAG) new exhibition "Pink Elephants." The term "Pink Elephant" was coined by Jack London in 1913 to describe visions and hallucinations brought on by excessive alcohol consumption. Josh Agle's work has always celebrated and advocated the drinking of cocktails and liquor, and his own lifestyle reflected the paintings he created. Agle, explains, "I used alcohol as an aid to create art and as a means to escape the expanding responsibilities of a successful art career...

Ye Hongxing "East of Eden" @ Scream, London

Juxtapoz // Monday, November 18, 2013
Following the overwhelming response to her debut UK exhibition last year, Beijing-based artist Ye Hongxing opened an exhibit at Scream in London this October. Hongxing creates jewel-like mosaics of a hybrid reality using a collage of stickers on canvas. Usually collected during childhood, this mass-produced, kitsch material is deftly applied to create kaleidoscopic and highly detailed compositions.
