Tim Biskup "Charge" @ Martha Otero Gallery, LA

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, September 18, 2013
Martha Otero Gallery is pleased to present Charge, an exhibition by Juxtapoz favorite, Tim Biskup, featuring a new body of work. The title, Charge, holds complex personal references for Biskup. To be 'charged' or to be 'in charge' is to feel psychologically or emotively 'charged' as in renewed, revived and empowered. In particle physics, the theory of 'color charge' refers to an abstract concept of positive and negative values.

Ed Templeton x Case Studyo "LAMP"

Design // Wednesday, September 18, 2013
Case Studyo continues their fantastic series of special artist designed editions that have been sculptures and housewares, and now they have teamed with Southern California artist, photographer, and skateboarder Ed Templeton on a lamp piece. The piece features one of Ed's now signature head designs, and from the looks of it, lights up completely so you can have a bit of Beautiful Losers vibe shining in your house all the night long... 

Illustrations by Anouk Griffioen

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, September 18, 2013
We love these large-scale charcoal illustrations by Rotterdam, Netherlands-based artist Anouk Griffioen. A connection with fashion can be seen in her work through the clothing and the models' faces and bodies. This influence saw a turning point when she collaborated with fashion photographer Anne Marieke van Drimmelen. Ever since Anouk has seen fashion play a more visible role in her art.

Here's some newer work from a Juxtapoz favorite, Brian Donnelly, who usually shows up in our Erotica department with his portraits of beastly nudes. Brian is a visual artist and illustrator based in Toronto, Ontario whose new work is tending towards running pigments and illness, while maintaining his signature portraiture style.

Renaissance GIFs by Scorpion Dagger

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, September 18, 2013
British artist James Kerr (aka Scorpion Dagger) has been making some pretty entertaining GIFs using mostly northern and early renaissance paintings. They remind us early Terry Gilliam animations and are helping start our day off light-hearted.

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.
