Drew Millward's Accessible Creepiness

Illustration // Wednesday, July 17, 2013
Evan La Ruffa writes that "Drew Millward's work is defined by an accessible creepiness." Millward likes to draw 'the old fashioned way,' using pencils, pens and a love of the craft of illustration. While his subject matter can vary dramatically, he hopes that the attention to detail and the love of drawing is apparent through his work. Born in 1981 in Coventry, Millward grew up in Bolton, studied and lived in Leeds for many years and now lives in a quarry in the Aire Valley. He has been making art since around 2004. Millward has exhibited through the US, UK, Europe and beyond, and has created work for a large international client base. 

Nathan Alexis Brown

Illustration // Tuesday, July 16, 2013
Like great masses of earth, fabric or muscle, Nathan Alexis Brown's artwork draws from the power of line mass to create roiling, powerful imagery that is an entirely different experience at a distance and close up. These compositions are a fantastic mess of tactile mark-making, capturing movement and flow through a static medium. Brown woks is a huge variety of mediums and has exhibited extensively.

Romain Laurent and the Human Clock

Erotica // Tuesday, July 16, 2013
Photographer Romain Laurent shot this image for WAD Magazine, putting a unique spin on "sexy time." Using humans as the hands and tick marks on a clock, this art piece is photography, performance, installation and erotica all at once. 

"Frontera" by David De La Mano

Street Art // Tuesday, July 16, 2013
David De La Mano has created yet another mural while in Montevideo, Uruguay. This time, the artist painted a monochromatic circle filled with his tiny-silhouetted characters. They all appear to be moving toward the middle where one character lies flat, presumably killed.

As we reported last week, and showed you in the preview of our August 2013 issue, MOMO just opened a week-long show in Grottaglie, Italy with the FAME Festival and Studiocromie crew.

The Paintings and Murals of Robert Proch

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, July 16, 2013
Another look at an artist we are really enjoying these days... Poland-based Robert Proch. Living in Poznań, Proch does murals, paintings, and also does work as an animator. The first time we saw his work was in a group show at Lazarides' Newcastle space, and the future as a painter is very bright for this young artist.

Update: Decaying Fine Art by Valerie Hegarty

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, July 16, 2013
We say decaying fine art, but the work of Valerie Hegarty is just so much more. Ravaged paitings, melting canvas, cracked walls, weathered works are all the characteristics of Hegarty's work. Valerie showed at The Queen's Nails in San Francisco earlier this year and is currently in an exhibit at The Brooklyn Museum through December 1st, 2013. The New Yorker called her work a look into "waning powers of a nation and fractured affairs of state." Perhaps of all culture in general?

Alma Haser's "Cosmetic Surgery"

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, July 16, 2013
This morning we take a look at London-based photographer Alma Haser's Cosmetic Surgery series. Each photograph is a three-step process. After taking the portrait, Alma will print multiple images of the subject's face and fold them into complicated origami modular constructions. She then places it back on the original face and re-photographs the whole thing.

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, July 16, 2013

Glitch Art Textiles by Phillip Stearns

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, July 16, 2013
Phillip Stearns is a New Media artist behind a Tumblr producing daily glitch screen shots. He took these screenshots and made them into textiles, blankets and tapestries. The glitched pixels translate perfectly into the weaves. "Glitch Textiles has grown to include a range of woven and knit wall hangings and blankets whose patterns are generated using images taken with short circuited cameras and other digital technologies..."
