Foster the People "Pseudologia Fantastica"

Music // Monday, June 23, 2014
We are excited to premiere Foster the People's newest video "Pseudologia Fantastica," a track from their second album Supermodel which was released this March. The brilliant animation comes from the mind of Mark Foster himself. "This video came to me in the back of a taxi while traveling through Cuba. I think in some ways it's a reflection of what I was seeing around me - a country ravaged by communism...

Bob Mazzer "Underground" @ Howard Griffin Gallery, London

Photography // Monday, June 23, 2014
While working as a projectionist in a porn cinema in Central London during the 1980s, Bob Mazzer began photographing on the tube during his daily commute, creating irresistibly joyous pictures alive with humor and humanity. "Every day I traveled to King's Cross and back. Coming home late at night, it was like a party and I felt like the tube was mine and I was there to take the pictures” recalls Mazzer. 

CRASH "Broken English" @ Jonathan LeVine Gallery, NYC

Juxtapoz // Monday, June 23, 2014
It was very sad for us to see our 20th Anniversary show, "Art Truancy," come down from Jonathan LeVine Gallery a few weeks back. We had a blast! But good things come to an end, and in this case, another good thing is on the horizon at JLG. Famed and influential Bronx-graffiti staple CRASH is set to open "Broken English" at the gallery on June 26, 2014. In conjunction with the exhibition, CRASH has painted a mural with The L.I.S.A. Project NYC, located on Suffolk between Rivington and Stanton Streets, and will release a new screen print editio.

The Work of Igor & Marina

Juxtapoz // Monday, June 23, 2014
We are loving the work of Russian-born husband-and-wife team Igor Kozlovsky and Marina Sharapova. 'Characterized by a remarkable fusion of seemingly discordant elements: past present, figurative and abstract, traditional and avant-garde,' their work together features Renaissance-era figures floating over backgrounds of cryptic text and pattern 'while areas of intricate, realistic detail coexist with expanses of layered color.'

Incredible Etchings by Etsuko Fukaya

Juxtapoz // Monday, June 23, 2014
It's easy to get lost in the rich details of Japanese artist Etsuko Fukaya's etchings with the lively creatures filling every inch of the enriched world that the artist created for them. "I want to draw what is alive," she says. Fukaya specifically chose etching as a way to express those details and allow her to draw extremely delicate lines. Finding even a magnifying object distracting, she works solely using the naked eye.

Update: The work of Vasilios Paspalis

Illustration // Monday, June 23, 2014
As a Royal College of Art graduate, Vasilios Paspalis blends digital technology with traditional subjects matter creating strange, hyper-real compositions that are bordering on the surreal. His tense and precious renderings are both masterful and refreshing in their abstractions.
