Juxtapoz // Wednesday, August 01, 2012
In celebration of Brazilian twins, Os Gemeos, and their museum exhibition at the Boston ICA opening today and carrying through to November 25, 2012, we look back at one of two cover stories we have run with the two artists. This one dates back to July 2010, at a time where their installation work was becoming some of the most experimental and immersive in the world, and when their street work was as impactful as it had always been.

Preview: September issue featuring Daniel Clowes, London Police, and David Shrigley

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, August 01, 2012
A busy summer it has been all around in the art world, but in our home base of the San Francisco Bay Area, we have had two significant museum retrospectives that have made their way into the September 2012 issue of Juxtapoz. First off, we celebrate our cover story, Daniel Clowes, and his fantastic exhibition at the Oakland Museum of California, Modern Cartoonist: The Art of Daniel Clowes. Over the years, the iconic comic book artist has given us cult-followed works such as Ghost World, Eightball, Wilson, and numerous covers for The New Yorker.

The Dark Universe of Laurence Demaison

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, August 01, 2012
Even in the darkest parts of our mind could we ever come up with the intriguing and wonderful photography of Laurence Demaison. The French photographer and fine artist combines black and white photos with his own drawing and effected layers on top of the image, adding a ghostly dimension to the finished product.

The Works of Amanda Elizabeth Joseph

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, August 01, 2012
We are not quite sure how to feel here, but we know we feel a little bit uncomfortable. Maybe it is the discolored skin? The pimples? The blood? The black eyes? The jewels? The smiling? The sadness? Probably the sores? Whatever it is, all we know is that there is something dark here, but we can't take our eyes off of the works of Amanda Elizabeth Joseph.

A few months ago, Italian muralist, Ericailcane, was in Mexico City for his exhibition at FIFTY24MX Gallery, and was able to find time to paint this wall with fellow artist, Hitnes, in Tepito.

Drawing the Bodily Form with Michelle Furlong

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, August 01, 2012
Michelle Furlong's artworks revolve around the human form, using the mediums of drawing, painting, and sculpture to investigate the limits space in and around the body. Furlong's drawings wrap and fragment arms, heads, feet, shoulders, and everything else in contorted and high-tension positions that flatten some limbs while others emerge fully rendered in graphite.

Amazing Charcoal Rope Series

Illustration // Wednesday, August 01, 2012
'I chose imagery of knotted or twisted rope to help me describe the felt but unexpressed visceral world of the mind/body.

Music Video: Liars "Brats" by Ian Cheng

Music // Tuesday, July 31, 2012
As we have stated on this site time and time again, the state of music videos, since the advent of this thing called the Internet, is in a quite strong place. Enter this fantastic new video by Ian Cheng for the band Liars (whose new album, WIXIW, is really quite good) and their new single, "Brats." An Elmer Fudd character, a Donnie Darko killer bunny rabbit, and an intense thunder dance beat make this a good wake-up call for your afternoon.
