Oil Paintings by Sascha Braunig

Juxtapoz // Friday, January 04, 2013
SASCHA BRAUNIG combines vibrant color and an hypnotic style in works that reflect upon illusion and the surface of the image. In dream-like scenes where repetition and patterning are foregrounded, Braunig's female subjects emit an extrasensory glow. Flaring with reflected color, they are iridescent beings whose very skin seems to be a source of psychic power. —Foxy Production

The Works of Sergio Albiac

Juxtapoz // Friday, January 04, 2013
I create visual imagery to articulate my thoughts about the beauty, contradictions and emotion of the act of living. My work revolves around the interior worlds we create in our minds and the tensions that arise when confronted to our realities. The illusion of control in a world much governed by randomness and the elusive nature of emotions are also recurring ideas in my work.

Sneak Peek: "Iron To Gold/Ashes To Hope" Benefit @ Chandran Gallery, SF

Juxtapoz // Thursday, January 03, 2013
We got a little sneak peek into Iron To Gold/Ashes To Hope, the special benefit exhibition, installation, and auction in support of an innovative artist-in-residence program in Detroit that Juxtapoz is helping sponsor in collaboration with Chandran Gallery in San Francisco. The artists organizing the event, Monica Canilao and friends, are Bay Area based artists who have since moved and started a residency program in Detroit to bring together fellow artists from around the country to have a meeting place for collaborative projects and creative development.

Angelo Plessas "Mirage Machines"

Juxtapoz // Thursday, January 03, 2013
A bit of interaction for us today on Juxtapoz.com. Bubblebyte.org is pleased to present Mirage Machines, a solo exhibition of works by Athens-based artist Angelo Plessas. Since the late 90s, Angelo Plessas’ work has been strongly reflecting and mastering the language of the Internet through the creation of websites as artworks. So what that means for you, me, us is that we get to play and interact with Plessas' creations from the past few years.

Michael Genovese "Lines and Cracks and Zebras and Horses" @ OHWOW, LA

Juxtapoz // Thursday, January 03, 2013
OHWOW is pleased to announce Michael Genovese’s second solo exhibition with the gallery, titled Lines and Cracks and Zebras and Horses, presenting a recently completed body of work based on lineation, cleave, and the concept implied by the aphorism: “When you hear hoof beats behind you, don’t expect to see a zebra.” A series of plasma-cut steel wall reliefs located throughout the gallery compose a subtle arrangement based equally on materiality and concept.

Converse x Juxtapoz: Wall To Wall Boston featuring Caleb Neelon

Juxtapoz // Thursday, January 03, 2013
Over the past year, Juxtapoz and Converse have teamed on a unique project, Wall to Wall, where we invite an artist in a city in North America to create a semi-permanent mural based around the artist's interpretation of the iconic Converse star. Today, we look back on the piece that Boston-based Caleb Neelon painted in his hometown. We were happy that we had one of our longtime contributing editors, and a big part of our editorial team, Neelon, paint one of the standout walls from the series.

No Special Effects: Photography by Laurence Demaison

Juxtapoz // Thursday, January 03, 2013
The photographic work of Laurence Demaison is exclusively constituted by self-portraits from 1993 to 2009. Since 2010 she occasionally uses mannequins or dolls. The used techniques - shot, development, print - are analogicals and realized by the author. No particular manipulation intervenes beyond the shot (except chemical inversion of films for some series).

OakOak is Back

Juxtapoz // Thursday, January 03, 2013
Well, its not like French street interventionist, oaKoAk, had gone anywhere, because he has continually been creating some of the best and most humorous street works in the world, but we haven't looked into his newest works in quite some time. Nobody can transform the mundane objects of the street into a cartoon strip quite like oaKoAk, and there is never a bad time to see what he is up to...
