Tattooed Portraits by Kris Lewis

Tattoo // Saturday, July 28, 2012
It's no secret we're fans of Los Angeles-based painter Kris Lewis. Lewis' oil paintings are remarkable for a number of reasons but we're especially enthusiastic about his tattooed cast of characters. 'Kris Lewis takes much of his inspiration from his mother who taught him the importance of hard work, dedication and a love of tradition. As an immigrant who had to flee from communist forces in her home country of Latvia, she instilled in her son a love of his heritage...'

Illustration // Saturday, July 28, 2012
Anne Emond is a writer, illustrator, and drawer of comics living in Brooklyn. 'I graduated in 2010 with an MFA in illustration from the School of Visual Arts. I like drawing potted plants, stacks of books, skeletons, little old ladies, and people looking generally pensive and melancholy, except when I'm drawing comics and then it's people (usually me!) looking ridiculous.

Blu in Ordes, Spain

Juxtapoz // Friday, July 27, 2012
We can only assume that Italian muralist, Blu, is a healthy man with a good juicer. For the DesordesCreativas festival in Ordes, Spain, Blu painted this odd to healthy eating and vegetarian lifestyle. Thousands of veggies and fruits, all getting ready, excited, to jump into the blender of life. A good smoothie is born. 

The Works of REMED

Juxtapoz // Friday, July 27, 2012
Featured in our August 2012 issue is French-born, Spain based fine artist and muralist REMED. What first attracted us to REMED? Simple; his use of color to create simple, flowing characters reminded us of the great abstract artist that came before him. But this application to the street works have brought international attention to REMED, and we think this is as good as time as any to showcase a range of the artist's work.
