An immediate favorite, the artist El Grio captures the beauty of simplicity in his paintings and depictions of mundane objects. Often featuring one object at a time, El Grio renders them much like a still-life, in their typical environment, very ordinarily. Raw and un-embellished ubiq­ui­tous sub­jects are his specialty.

Erotica // Tuesday, January 15, 2013

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, January 15, 2013
Andy Ralph is a San Diego-based artist that also sings in the band Writer. We first encountered his lawn chair sculptures in the Musuem of Contemporary Art, San Diego at their La Jolla location.
