"Katharsis": Lucha Libre Documented @ Museum of Latin American Art, Long Beach

Juxtapoz // Friday, August 02, 2013
The Katharsis exhibition is comprised with images from the Photography Collection of Fundación Televisa, becoming a documentary and artistic tour through the real and imaginary arenas of Mexican wrestling or lucha libre. Entrenched within pop culture since the 1930s, lucha libre has become for Mexicans an obsession harkening back to gladiator battles and Aztec warriors. The public is not resigned to the role of spectator; but instead, they fervently participate in the complex and boundless theatricality of lucha libre. The exhibition will be on display at the MOLAA in Long Beach through September 15, 2013.

Benjamin Constantine's 'Oysterboy'

Illustration // Friday, August 02, 2013
The slightly disturbing comics of Benjamin Constantine stem from a very, very strange place in Brisbane, Australia. With stories like 'Oysterface', a zine about a boy that was evicted from his river-side apartment 50 miles away from the beach and took it upon himself to evolve into shellfish and live in a dank, wet rock-hole by the sea, Benjamin's reads are generally for Adults Only.

Update: Anatomical Surrealism of Valerio Carrubba

Juxtapoz // Friday, August 02, 2013
If Salvador Dali lived today and really wanted to get into the medical profession but wanted to keep his artistic chops, we get a gut feeling that his work could possibly go in the direction of Milan, Italy's Valerio Carrubba. We have always wanted to coin a term such as "Anatomical Surrealism," but now we sort of want to call Carrubba's work "Anatomical Surrealist Landscape" painting.

Portraits Made From Screws by Andrew Meyers

Juxtapoz // Friday, August 02, 2013
We're having fun this Friday morning with German-born, Spain-raised, and California-based artist Andrew Meyers and his portraits made from screws. Using thousands of screws, the artist drives them in at different depths to give the piece a unique sense of texture 3 dimensionality. Once the screws are in, he will paint over each individual (often 7,000-10,000) screw head by hand to create the finish portrait.

Japanese artist Ikeda Manabu begins his process with a giant blank canvas, a small acryclic pen, and no iea what the final piece will look like.

The incredibly detailed drawings watch traditional Japanese architecture clash with treet roots, water, birds and fish!
