Horfe Abstraction

Graffiti // Tuesday, May 21, 2013
This is by far one of our most favorite pieces we have seen Horfe paint yet. It resembles more of an abstract painting you would see on a canvas than graffiti in the street. 

Steve Powers' "Visual Blues" @ Alice Gallery in Brussels

Street Art // Tuesday, May 21, 2013
Steve Powers aka "Espo" just opened a new solo show on May 18, 2013, entitled “Visual Blues” at Alice Gallery in Brussels. In Powers’s own words, “I’m in awe of the power and the reach of music. To compete with the majesty of music, I make paintings that are visual blues. I distill my everyday experience into paintings I call Daily Metaltations. They are painted very fast, fresh from the epiphanies that inspired them. The larger paintings draw from those metaltations and go to a deeper understanding of the transactions we make everyday to live our lives.”

Queens of the Stone Age have been pumping the promotion of their new LP, ...Like Clockwork, all over the web over the past month, and we have been excited to see one of our favorite artists, Boneface, get the attention he deserves. The artist created the album cover artwork for QOTSA, and now has over 15 minutes of animation going along with Queens' new music. Epic. 

Paintings by Eric White

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, May 21, 2013
We last took a look at the paintings of New York-based artist Eric White back in 2011. We feel the time has come to take another look through his past and more recent work! Eric's work is realism tinged with the surreal and occasional eroticism. His palette and imagery seems to come straight from somewhere between a Hitchcock film, the Twilight Zone, and a 1980s living room. Many of his paintings are also titled and based off scenes from old movies...  

Photographs by Ivan Forde

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, May 21, 2013
This series of photographs by Ivan Forde represent the process that the reader's mind goes through when reading Milton's Paradise Lost. While attending SUNY Purchase College for literature, Ivan merged literature and photography to critique poetry. The result is this fascinating series of 8 photos titled Transformation. "The act of reading the poem invites readers to put themselves under the cold eyes of self-examination...The sight of our imperfections stimulates Transformation, resulting in a non-duelist view of all our parts - accepting the process between good and evil."
