"In Landsapes," Photographs by Petros Koublis

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, December 11, 2013
Made around the outskirts of Athens, this series of photographs by Petro Koublis explores the land that lies behind the edge of the city, outside the invisible borders of the extended metropolitan area. "This is an alternate state in parallel time, where silence seems to carry inside it a waiting, patiently whispering a long forgotten language. There is no beauty that is timeless but the timelessness of nature can reflect a new direction, maybe even a hope."

Chris Scarborough's Eerie Figures

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, December 11, 2013
Nashville-based artist Chris Scarborough has continued to keep himself busy creating his pristine graphite images for shows all over the US (and world!). His obvious techincal skill combines with slightly eerie subjects--like missile-toting clouds hovering in midair, contorted anime figures and girls submerged in amorphous white voids--create a tangible sense of uneasiness through fantastical imagery.

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, December 11, 2013
In our December issue, we published a Travel Insider piece on the art scene of the great Northeast city of Boston. It got us thinking a trip back east may be in the cards soon. The Luxury Collection and One Kings Lane are proving to be a perfect travel guide... this trip looks like a nice start.

Kurt Dalen R.I.P.

Graffiti // Tuesday, December 10, 2013
Last week, S.F-based artist and exemplary friend to many, Kurt Dalen, was a victim of a hit and run accident in the Mission District of San Francisco. Kurt was a San Francisco Art Institute graduate who created figurative paintings, mixed media work, was a prolific graffiti writer and had been published in our February 2012 issue. Of all his unique characteristics, optimism was his greatest. He had the rare ability to look at the positive side of every situation and had a permanent smile that was deeply infectious. Everyone in the Bay Area and beyond will greatly miss your presence and charm. RIP Kurt Dalen.

In short, they are a reflection of the world around us."

Yayoi Kusama for W Magazine + George Clooney

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, December 10, 2013
Don't worry, we are not going to start covering the photoshoots involving George Clooney now on the site, but if they involve the great mind of Yayoi Kusama, and Clooney is releasing a film dedicated to art in "The Monuments Men," we will do it this time. W Magazine just ran a cover story on Mr. Clooney, presumably to chat all things "Monuments," and they smartly had Yayoi art directed the shoot with her signature polka dot patterns, while being capture by photographer Emma Summerton.
