Paintings by Carl Ostendarp

Juxtapoz // Friday, October 12, 2012
Carl Ostendarp's paintings were once described by art critic Jerry Saltz as a hypothetical collaborative art production by Dr. Seuss's Cat in the Hat, Jules Olitski, and Roy LIchtenstein, and we couldn't agree more. These playful paintings evoke a range of visual cues from cartoons to high art minimalism...

Juxtapoz // Friday, October 12, 2012

Juxtapoz // Friday, October 12, 2012
The surreal and  dreamlike imagery created from the minds of Ukrainian art duo, Intersni Kazki, continuously holds our attention and remains among our favorite of contemporary artists working in the streets. Their newest project in St. Ottilien, Germany for the Heaven Meets Earth Festival further displays the artist’s range of imagination and contains a healthy selection of bizarre symbolism.

From sun up to sun down, Kukla roamed the desert with a mirror, easel, and camera.
