New works by Boneface

Juxtapoz // Thursday, March 06, 2014
Two things. One, Boneface's work for Queens of the Stone Age and their album "...Like Clockwork" was amazing. Second, QOTSA are amazing. Oh, and we have a third thing. Boneface just updated his site with new works from 2014, and as always, they are heavy metal come to life. Or desert rock. Your pick. 

The World of Ryan Salge

Illustration // Thursday, March 06, 2014
Ryan Salge combines a wickedly deft sense of rendering with a dark and dexterous imagination to creat illustrations that reel with dept and narrative. These haunting images of dreamscapes lit with twilight tones create an endless field of visions that persist long after viewing.

Juxtapoz // Thursday, March 06, 2014

Marco Mazzoni "White Days" @ B15 Gallery, Copenhagen

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, March 05, 2014
Marco Mazzoni has always been an artist that has garnered a ton of interest between our staff and readers, maybe because the Italian artist has such an interesting command over his Moleskine drawings. The artist just opened a body of new colored pencil works, "White Days," at B15 Gallery in Copenhagen, open through March 26, 2014. We love the addition of some of the animals in the artist's work over the past few shows, an interesting dimension to already stellar work flow. 

Alex Katz "45 YEARS OF PORTRAITS. 1969-2014" @ Galerie Thaddaeus Ropac, Paris

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, March 05, 2014
We know, we know, Alex Katz may be just a tad too fine art establishment for our daily feed on the site, but I have always found his work to be remarkable every time I see it at one of the large art fairs we visit each year. We are sure to see some of this paintings at the Armory Show this week, but if you happen to be in Paris, Katz has what appears to be a wonderful exhibition, "45 Years of Portraits, 1969—2014," at Galerie Thaddaeus Ropac up through July 2014. Go check it.
