EVOL "Unreal Estate" @ Jonathan LeVine Gallery, NYC

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, June 23, 2015
If you haven't seen the work of EVOL in person, it is some of the coolest work being made in the world right now. From the streets, installation, site-specifuc projects, to fine art in galleries, the Berlin-based artist is one of a kind. For his newest show, Unreal Estate, opening at NYC's Jonathan LeVine Gallery on June 25, the artist continues to explore his signature stencil on used cardboard work.

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, June 23, 2015
This should be a good one. Jeff Soto, a 2x cover aritst, Jux x Converse collaborator and all around awesome artist, is set to open a new solo show, Nightgardens, and Merry Karnowsky's KP Projects / MKG this Saturday, June 27th. Amazingly, and we had to double check this, it is Soto's first solo show in Los Angeles since 2009... which he was on the cover of Juxtapoz that month!

The Camera Club by Chris Verene (NSFW)

Erotica // Tuesday, June 23, 2015
This is one of our favorite series we have come across in quite some time, and Chris Verene is a great photographer that we just learned about recently. It's a creepy series, following groups of men who somehow lure young women into modeling nude by placing ads in the classified sections pretending to be fashion photographers. It's seedy beyond belief, but incredibly investigated by Verene.

The Photographs of Ronan Guillou

Photography // Tuesday, June 23, 2015
Ronan Guillou (b. 1968) is a French photographer who currently lives and works in both Paris and the United States. He credits much of his inspiration to the film “Paris-Texas” (d. Wim Wenders.) “I was fascinated by Travis Henderson, a solitary character walking with mysterious determination under the burning Texan sun. With the sublime appearance, later on in the film, of Nastassja Kinski, I was struck by the power of the still frame and of colour.”

An Update with Mrzyk and Moriceau

Erotica // Tuesday, June 23, 2015
We have been long-time fans of Petra Mrzyk and Jean-François Moriceau's illustrations. Working collaboratively since 1998, the Châtillon-sur-Indre, France-based artists are known for their "detailed black-and-white ink drawings, their work teeters on the absurd, humorous, and perverse. With an ironic nod to commercial illustration, comics, and graphic design, they pluck imagery from contemporary visual culture. In their work, anything becomes possible. Animals take on human traits; inanimate objects disturbingly come to life; and the surreal is the norm."
