Photos of Flowers by Sasha Kurmaz

Juxtapoz // Thursday, August 30, 2012
Well, maybe we should preface this post that these are not just any photos of flowers, but perhaps some of the most vibrant, focused photos of flowers you are going to see. Sasha Kurmaz' work takes on a new meaning upon a second glance; they look like still-life paintings, pieces of art in their own right.

The Paintings of Ana Teresa Fernandez

Juxtapoz // Thursday, August 30, 2012
Ablution is a series of paintings that derive from performances that submerges the body into specific sites, addressing rituals of cleansing and maintenance, focusing on gender, labor, sexuality and race. What does it mean to be clean in today’s society?

Vintage Works of Jaroslav Vávra (NSFW)

Juxtapoz // Thursday, August 30, 2012
A gorgeous selection of works from the Olomouc photographer Jaroslav Vávra (1920-1981), who was a member of the significant group of photographers DOFO (1958-1975). Vávra played an important role in the history of Czech photography of the second half of the 20th century, his photographs clearly demonstrate that in the 1960's he was among the prominent representatives and pioneers of nude photography in the country, along with Zden?k Virt and Miroslav Stibor.

The Work of Niark1

Juxtapoz // Thursday, August 30, 2012
The different talents of French artist, Sebastien Feraut aka Niark1 are as multiple as are the eyes of the weird, wolfish creatures that inhabit his work. His trippy imagery, which manages a sense of darkness despite its beaming colours, fills illustrations and graphics as well as his own large paintings.

Erotica by Oliver Hibert

Juxtapoz // Thursday, August 30, 2012
'Eye catching, colorful, bold, fantastic, surreal and psychedelic, is how many describe American artist, Oliver Hibert’s style of artwork. Hibert was born in Seattle, Washington in 1983. Self-taught and determined, Oliver Hibert made his debut in galleries by the age of sixteen...'

New Book: Tiffany Bozic "Drawn by Instinct"

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, August 29, 2012
Tiffany Bozic, cover of our January 2011 issue, just had a monograph released through Gingko Press, Drawn By Instinct. We were lucky enough to get a copy of it here in the office, and with 192 pages of Bozic's beautiful animal and sea life paintings, this is one of our favorite books of the year. On Tuesday September 4th at 6:00pm, Bozic will be giving a lecture and book signing at the San Francisco Public Library, in conjunction with the Cal Academy of Sciences (Bozic was the artist-in-residence there a few years back).

And for clarity sake, all 3 artists are having solo shows. This is 3 for the price of 1.

Oil Can Dragon (2011) by Qiu Zhijie

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, August 29, 2012
This works on many levels. Chinese artist, Qiu Zhijie, created the Oil Can Dragon, a public sculpture that featured, you guessed it, oil cans reorganized and re-imagined into a dragon. In 2011, the oil can dragon was was placed at the doors of the CAFA Biennale art exhibition in Beijing, and as we just read, in traditional Chinese culture, use of oil drums suggests a tension between the natural and modern worlds.

Evah Fan "What Have You" @ Park Life, SF

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, August 29, 2012
When we featured Evah Fan in the magazine back in October 2010, she was living in Stockholm, Sweden, making intricate illustrations that, and as Kristin Farr wrote at the time, were "unintentionally puzzling." Now back living in Oakland, California, perhaps things will get more puzzling or clear as Fan is set to open What Have You at Park Life in San Francisco on August 31.
