Yayoi Kusama's "The Obliteration Room"

Juxtapoz // Thursday, October 10, 2013
We have seen some fantastic exhibitions from Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama in the past. Last December's was no exception. As part of her "Look Now, See Forever" Yayoi built and painted a domestic environment white and invited children to cover the entire thing in colorful dot stickers. By the time two weeks had passed, there was very little white left!

"Ascender," a Collaboration between Mars-1 and Brendan Monroe

Juxtapoz // Thursday, October 10, 2013
We haven't checked in with former Juxtapoz cover artist Mario Martinez (MARS-1) in a while and were excited to find out after a recent chat with the San Francisco-based painter that he has released a print from his 2012 collaboration with Oakland-based artist Brendan Monroe. The release follows several other print releases and another fantastic collaboration with another Jux favorite, Alex Grey. 

Update: Intricate Illustrations by Nicolas Delort

Juxtapoz // Thursday, October 10, 2013
Nicolas Delort is a freelance illustrator based in Paris, France. His monochrome pen and ink drawings show a taste for the fantastical, as evidenced by his numerous Harry Potter-themed pieces. The line quality in Delort's  work is astounding, and we're more than a little reminded of another French great by the name of Gustave Doré.

Wooden Sculptures and Drawings by Ben Butler

Juxtapoz // Thursday, October 10, 2013
We are enjoying the rhythmic sculptures and drawings of Memphis-based artist Ben Butler this morning. Butler is an Assistant Professor of Art at Rhodes College and his work has been shown in galleries across the United States.

The work of Dasic

Street Art // Thursday, October 10, 2013
Sometimes you have to see something a few times before your brain actually registers its existence. That is certainly the case with Dasic’s work, whose murals we have seen in the past, most notably when collaborating with the artist Okuda. The Chilean-born, New York-based muralist has created a number of stunning large-scale works in various mediums over the years. For us, his most impressive piece is in Newburgh, New York, where the particular murals imagery wraps across the ceiling of an underpass dominating the architecture. 

Aryz sets sail...

Street Art // Wednesday, October 09, 2013
Ready, set, sail! Spanish artist, Aryz (our January 2013 cover artist) has expanded his canvases to include a mast for a fishing boat. This boat will be regularly setting sail off the beaches of the small fishing town of Andavadoaka, Madagasca where Aryz recently visited.

The Popular Workshop x Francesco Igory Deiana

Illustration // Wednesday, October 09, 2013
An exclusive conversation between The Popular Workshop and Francesco Igory Deiana on his current show 'Free Fall', currently on display in San Francisco based gallery The Popular Workshop. 'The name of my show is "Free Fall" Like the act of free falling, your letting yourself, your body, spirit, ego; you are letting it all go...'

The Works of Alex Kopps

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, October 09, 2013
It feels like we have been following the work of Alex Kopps for years, but finally, in our new November 2013 issue, we have an exclusive interview with the ... well, elusive artist. Kopps has done a bunch of work in and with Mollusk Surf Shop, a ton of surf art, a ton of fine art, video, photography, and other forms of documentation... and we just get our own creative juices flowing when we see his work. Get the issue, and perhaps look at Kopps' eclectic work. 

Embroidery and Drawings by Caroline Hwang

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, October 09, 2013
We haven't checked in with the work of Caroline Hwang in quite some time, and we just noticed she has been creating these fantastic embroidery illustrations recently. The Brooklyn-based artist has been doing work for the NY Times, New York Magazine, RVCA, and Starbucks in Taiwan... which means that Starbucks in Taiwan is up to some good stuff.
