David Shrigley "Big Shoes" @ BQ, Berlin

Juxtapoz // Thursday, October 10, 2013
We like to say old friend David Shrigley, because when he showed in our backyard of YBCA in SF last year, we did a fantastic interview with the British artist. Last month, Shrigley was in Berlin to open Big Shoes at BQ. The artist is well known to the wider public for his cartoons, books and films and recently has been nominated for this year’s Turner Prize. In his fifth exhibition at BQ, he mainly presents sculptural objects, next to a new series of works on paper.

Our colleagues at Juxtapoz Latin America tuned us into the the works of Vladimir Clavijo, and we wanted to share the work on our site today. The Russian painter and photographer graduated from the Moscow Academy of Graphic Arts, and in the past has worked as a photographer in fashion and magazine advertising in Europe. Since 1999, Clavijo works on personal projects: monochrome photographs inspired by sensual symbolism, Russian ballet and fairy tales.

Thais Beltrame "Where I'm Not" @ Galeria Movimento, Rio de Janeiro

Juxtapoz // Thursday, October 10, 2013
Sao Paulo-based fine aritst Thais Beltrame, who we have featured in the magazine and profiled on the site in the past, is set to open a brand new solo show, Where I'm Not (Onde Não Estou) at Galeria Movimento in Rio de Janeiro, tonight, October 10. Beltrame's works always seem to carry with them a literary quality, layered storytelling techniques, and a quiet energy of her own universe.

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.
