John Poppleton's Black Light Bodyscapes

Erotica // Thursday, October 15, 2015
John Poppleton paints fluorescent landscapes onto the backs of nude bodies, resulting in incredible starry night-time visions that double as erotic compositions, decorating the curves of female silhouettes. As a commercial photographer with a passion for fantasy, Poppleton incorporates his masterful painting style into this Black Light Bodyscape series. Many of them are personalized or custom-made for his subject-- one includes a teepee to honor its model's Native American heritage. Thoughtful, sexy and trippy!

While Times Square now seems to be consumer central, it was once notorious as a salacious, precarious side of the city, replete with strip clubs, pimps and drugs. From his taxi cab, Matt Weber captured it all.

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, October 14, 2015
Join Swoon in transforming a building into a work of art, a center for creativity, and a place for new beginnings! "In 2007, while working on an art installation in North Braddock, PA, we fell in love with this incredible abandoned church on Jones Street. It was slated to be demolished within the year. We felt that the potential this space held - the ways it could bring joy and opportunity to the neighborhood - was too great to let the bulldozers roll in."

Drew Merritt "Requiem" @ Soze Gallery, LA

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, October 14, 2015
"Requiem" is a body of work with diverse thoughts and emotions expressed in each painting; meant to mirror life and it’s individualized complexities. This is also represented in pieces that feature the subject characterized more than once. Due to my discomfort with being categorized as “a pretty girl artist” most of the content is attractive women in varied states of conscious and unconscious reflection. I’ve found that often times, the more you distance yourself from something the more connected with it you become.
