Video: ROA's Plane for the Boneyard Project

Street Art // Thursday, October 18, 2012
Earlier this year, Juxtapoz took a trip to Tucson, Arizona to document a number of international artists painting massive disused Military airplanes and cockpits for a project entitled The Boneyard Project. A variation of eclectic styles adorned each piece of aviation and an opening reception displaying the planes was held at the Pima Art and Space Museum. ROA’s plane was painted alone much after all the events and everyone had left, surely a tranquil desert experience for the artist.  

Winnie Truong "Double Twist" @ Galerie Trois Points, Montreal

Juxtapoz // Thursday, October 18, 2012
Galerie Trois Points is very pleased to welcome Double Twist, the first solo exhibition in Montreal of young Toronto-based artist Winnie Truong, running through November 10th. Truong’s labour-intensive portraits reveal a very atypical human body while she questions our cultural relationship to the concept of beauty. She explores the boundaries between beauty and ugliness, delicate and grotesque.

Preview & Print: Ashley Wood "Machine Sabbath" @ Jonathan LeVine, NYC

Juxtapoz // Thursday, October 18, 2012
We often think Ashley Wood needs to get as much attention as any working artist today, but we know that there is a cult-following of Wood-heads all around the world. Features in our Pushead issue in November 2011, the Australia-based Wood is set to open a new body of work, Machine Sabbath, at Jonathan LeVine Gallery on Saturday, October 20. It will be his first solo show in the United States, and shares the same opening night as Jeremy Geddes' Exhale in the same gallery.

Seonna Hong "Persistence of Vision" @ LeBasse Projects, LA

Juxtapoz // Thursday, October 18, 2012
Always one of our favorite artists, Juxtapoz featured artist Seonna Hong just opened a new solo show at LeBasse Projects in Los Angeles, featuring a few stylistic nuances that we are really excited to see. Persistence of Vision is Hong’s first solo exhibition with LeBasse Projects and first in Los Angeles in seven years.

Shepard Fairey for InkCards

Juxtapoz // Thursday, October 18, 2012
With the upcoming election less than a month away, November 2012 feature artist Shepard Fairey (not to mention an artist set to open a new show in London this Friday, October 19) teamed up with InkCards and created a postcard you can mail for free to friends and family to just simply remind them to vote.

Preview: Jeremy Geddes "Exhale" @ Jonathan LeVine Gallery, NYC

Juxtapoz // Thursday, October 18, 2012
As we have been noting on the site all week (can you tell we are excited?), Australian artist Jeremy Geddes will be having his US debut at Jonathan LeVine Gallery in NYC this Saturday, October 20. The Feburaruy 2012 cover artist will be showing on the same night as fellow Aussie and extreme talent, Ashley Wood. 

Barbara Kruger Buses for "Art Matters" in Los Angeles

Juxtapoz // Thursday, October 18, 2012
The LA Fund and LAUSD have launched a public art project, “Art Matters,” in attempt to support funding for arts education in the Los Angeles school systems. Barbara Kruger (November 2010 cover artist), the conceptual/pop artist known for using black and white images overlaid with bold captions is working on the project.

Apex Predator Shoes by Fantich & Young

Juxtapoz // Thursday, October 18, 2012
If you have ever worn a crispy pair of dress shoes, maybe even golf spikes on concrete, you know the sound of a crunchy landed of foot to ground. We can only assume the Apex Predator Shoes, made by British design firm Fantich & Young, using 1,050 teeth dentures, would give a much more brain rattling crunch sound when foot hits pavement. 

Looking Back: Kenneth Noland

Juxtapoz // Thursday, October 18, 2012
Sometimes a little classic late-modern color field painting is all you need to brighten your day. Some may say abstraction is away to avoid politics in art, but in our eyes, abstraction of this kind is just plain beautiful in it's minimalist embrace of formalism.

The Sci-Fi Universe of Alex Andreev

Juxtapoz // Thursday, October 18, 2012
There will be some people who scoff at the idea that these works by Alex Andreev are digital paintings, but we love what the St. Petersburg, Russia based artist has going on in his head. These are fantastic version of a dystopian future, created entirely in Adobe Photoshop and Corel Paint.
