Juxtapoz Presents: Dylan Maddux in Cambodia (dir. by KC Ortiz)

Photography // Friday, November 01, 2013
As part of our new ongoing series of KC Ortiz' documentations in Southeast Asia, we catch up with photographer and director Dylan Maddux as he takes us through a day of his life in Cambodia. California-native Maddux lives and works in Phnom Penh, shooting the streets and society across a broad range of life, from the street vendor to Cambodian American deportees. 

MICHAEL JOHANSSON "Shades and Variables" @ Galleri Andersson/Sandström, Stockholm

Juxtapoz // Friday, November 01, 2013
This exhibition came down this past month in Stockholm, but we still had some great shots from Henrik Haven that he took of Michael Johansson's "Shades and Variables" at Galleri Andersson/Sandstrom. As the gallery notes, Johansson is "an installation artist obsessed with the investigation of spatial possibilities. Everyday objects are dismantled, re-organized and perfectly arranged into color-coordinated puzzles, filling out select voids of any dimension."

Paintings by Sherin Guirguis

Juxtapoz // Friday, November 01, 2013
Cairo-raised, LA-based artist Sherin Guirguis works primarily on paper, using ink, acrylic, and gouache to build large, vibrant organic shapes. She then cuts detailed geometric patterns into parts of the piece, producing beautiful and unique works!

Sculptures Made From Wire by Seung Mo Park

Juxtapoz // Friday, November 01, 2013
We've previously posted Brooklyn-based Korean sculptor Seung Mo Park's incredible portraits made from wire. This morning we are equally if not more impressed by his sculptures constructed from aluminum wire. In this series, titled Human, Seung Mo bends and twists the wire in what seems to be an almost impossibly smooth and flawless fashion.

The Haunted Painting is Revealed!

Juxtapoz // Friday, November 01, 2013
Yesterday, on Halloween, the infamous Haunted Painting (The Hands Resist Him) was revealed at Perception Gallery in Grand Rapids, Michigan. We featured the story of the painting in our October issue which told of a surrealist painting auctioned on Ebay with the warning that it was possessed. Stories of supernatural and tragic events followed the painting as the original painter was sought. The unveiling of the painting is documented after the jump so be warned that you may be subject to supernatural happening from just viewing them...

Banksy "Better Out Than In" Full Recap

Juxtapoz // Thursday, October 31, 2013
And so you have it, 31 days in October, 31 pieces/moments of art from Banksy, one city that is New York, and now it is over. Whether you loved it, hated it, felt inspired by it, Banksy took over the art world (well, pop culture world, really) for a month on the biggest stage, and left piece #31 and its companion audio as a reminder of why street art, graffiti, public art, whatever it is you want to call it, in whatever form you find it, do it, see it, is an important historical identifier of who we are as humans... enjoy a little recap of Better Out Than In. 

Tom Waits & John Baldessari, October 2013

Vault // Thursday, October 31, 2013
Seeing that it is Halloween, and Tom Waits dressed in a mask for our October 2013 cover story, and he played his first concert performance in a half decade this past weekend at the Bridge School Benefit in the Bay Area, we wanted to share the October 2013 cover story conversation between Tom Waits and John Baldessari. Their talk did have its own mysteries, own storylines, so it seems absolutely appropriate to read this story today. 

Wes Lang "Blessings" @ HALF Gallery, NYC

Juxtapoz // Thursday, October 31, 2013
Wes Lang is always putting together some bodies of work, the type of paintings that the bad biker guys in Pee Wee Herman's Big Adventure would love. This Fall, Lang will return to HALF Gallery with Blessings, a new body of work that will again look at the history of tattoo flash, imagery from the Old West, and even a little old school pornography. For the kids. We gathered a collection of Lang's work from the past year for you to check out... but go see it in person after November 7th. 

Wood-Cutout Paintings by Nathaniel Russell

Juxtapoz // Thursday, October 31, 2013
This past April in our print edition, we featured the paintings and works of Indianapolis-based Nathaniel Russell. We have always loved his fake flyer and book series, but now we love seeing his newest body of work... taking his painting style and creating wood cutout pieces from them. Or of them. From them of them. You get it. The pieces now reside in the garden of Service Center in Indianapolis, Indiana. Russell notes that he would like to "make a lot more of these until I am dead." Hey we got Halloween in there!
