Wayne White, June 2012

Vault // Friday, August 23, 2013
Wayne White is a little bit of everything: illustrator, musician, art director, apparently a puppeteer... you know, all those things that make one an artist. You may know him for his art direction of Pee-Wee's Playhouse, or perhaps for his fast becoming signature text over landscape reproduction works that have been part of an amazing monograph edited by Todd Oldham.

The Work of Alejandrina Herrera

Juxtapoz // Friday, August 23, 2013
  Mexican artist Alejandrina Herrera creates beautiful scenes on the basis of drawing, collage and watercolor. Telling stories about people, animals, and how they interact with their surroundings, Herrera likes to include a touch of irony and melancholy by playing with the size of things and spaces.

Update: Paintings by Jen Ray

Juxtapoz // Friday, August 23, 2013
This morning we are checking in with fine artist Jen Ray ahead of her solo exhibition Better to Reign in Hell Than Serve in Heavan opening September 13th at Haus am Luetzowplatz in Berlin. The work seems to channel some sort of Rose Bowl Parade about 1,000 years in the future. The Raleigh, North Carolina-born fine artist is represented by Wentrup Gallery in Berlin, and has taken the concepts of these paintings and transformed them into performance pieces.

Paintings and Drawings by Santiago Salvador

Juxtapoz // Friday, August 23, 2013
we are enjoying these paintings by Chilean artist Santiago Salvador this morning. Salvador thinks of his work as constructions, finding painting and illustration as "a gateway to the recognizable, the intimate and the ambiguous that surround us."

Ariko Inaoka's Photographs of Twins

Juxtapoz // Friday, August 23, 2013
Photographer Ariko Inaoka first met Icelandic twins Erna and Hrefna while travelling the country photographing the landscape. She has since returned every year to take pictures of them and continues to until they are 16, documenting the way their relationship changes, as they grow older. We love the series of beautiful and ethereal photos, even finding some of them a little frightening (though this could be because we recently re-watched The Shining)

Ebbets Field Flannels: A Shop Visit

Juxtapoz // Thursday, August 22, 2013
A few weeks ago, Juxtapoz visited the Northwest, settling in Seattle to explore the various companies and artists that live in probably the most beautiful city a Sound could offer. One of the places we have been intrigued by over the years is Ebbets Field Flannels, a company born out of a love of sports, but to us, a company and brand that signifies great traditions in both artisty and craftsmanship. Recreating exact silhouettes of classic and forgotten baseball teams, as well as apparel of other vintage baseball, football, and hockey teams. We stopped into their Seattle shop to get a glimpse of the team behind Ebbets... 

Who Writes Erotic Fiction?

Erotica // Thursday, August 22, 2013
Slate.com is debunking the question of who is behind erotic fiction in conjuction with photographer David Woolfall. Who is dreaming up accounts of leather-clad dominatrixes and mid-day office romances that are driving erotic sales higher everyday? They're not necessarily who you might expect-- these saucy authors are by and large women. Woolfall reached out to some of these women and found that they are often conservative, shy people, quick to emphasize that their stories and characters are not based on their own lives and desires. Read more here to get more info and excerpts from these racy writers.

Last Days to See "10 Years of Wooster Collective" @ Jonathan LeVine Gallery, NYC

Juxtapoz // Thursday, August 22, 2013
Earlier this month, we made our way to NYC to see a special pop-up space hosted by Jonathan LeVine gallery to celebrate 10 Years of Wooster Collective. The opening brought out old friends, lots of artists, and many examples of just how far the Street Art genre has grown even in just under a decade. From Shepard Fairey to Faile, Space Invader to JR, ROA to Swoon, the curation by Marc and Sara Schiller help capture the spirit of one of the original pioneers of sharing Street Art across a web-based platform, helping turn a burgeoning art scene into an international following and kinship amongst artists and enthusiasts.
