The Works of Caris Reid

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, May 20, 2015
Caris Reid currently has work up at Circuit 12 in Dallas, and we think its a good time to showcase the last few bodies of work from the Washington, DC-born artist. We are huge fans of Circuit 12, and even more so now, huge fans of Caris' work, which has a bit of vintage-portrait style mixed with the best and greatest playing cards you will ever see. Can't wait to see more in the near future...

Greg 'Craola' Simkins "Where Am I" @ KP Projects, LA

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, May 20, 2015
In his latest solo exhibition, Where Am I, Greg ‘Craola’ Simkins creates mythical landscapes inspired by childhood curiosity and awe. The title is a nod to Simkin’s Graffiti roots as a part of WAI and can also read as a dual reaction to entering fantastical lands bewildering and unknown. Simkin’s paints a world he calls ‘The Outside,’ an uninhibited setting where reveries hit the canvas at full speed. Anthropomorphized animals and fanciful critters explore and rebel on a grand scale in an alternate reality where fish fly and birds can swim.

The Artwork of Mika Nitta

Illustration // Wednesday, May 20, 2015
We're loving the beautiful illustrative work of Japanese artist Mika Nitta. With the kind of intricacy, attention to detail and the solid composition and palette that she portrays in her work, all you need to know is that it speaks for itself.

The New York City Department of Transportation's Art Program has collaborated with six artists to present dynamic, colorful murals along the nine-hundred-foot tunnel in Washington Heights. From a warm welcome, to complex geometric patterns, to rolling landscapes and positive messaging, these murals take pedestrians on an art-filled journey between the street and the 1 train.

“ONE HUNDRED SEATS – THE 113TH” by Colin Todd

Photography // Tuesday, May 19, 2015
In his series “ONE HUNDRED SEATS – THE 113TH”, New York-based photographer Colin Todd takes official portraits provided by the members of the 113th US Senate and attempts to remove the subject from the portrait completely. In addition to being a blunt political statement, the series comments on tropes in the very specific genre of official portraiture.
