The Work of Hsiao-Ron Cheng

Juxtapoz // Monday, July 23, 2012
Hsiao-Ron Cheng is a freelance illustrator and artist based in Taipei, Taiwan. She works with a variety of media including pencil, oils, and digital.

Paintings by Chloe Early

Juxtapoz // Sunday, July 22, 2012
We haven't checked in with one of our favorite painters, Chloe Early, in almost a year, and we loved the series of paintings she had at Joshua Liner Gallery last Fall. Taking a surreal approach, with figurative elements interchanged with color abstractions and dreamlike visions, Early's paintings take you on a stream of consciousness journey. 

Nicolas Barrome's Drawings

French artist Nicolas Barrome's work is very character driven. In his pieces you can find a variety of unique furry animals and creatures. He does not only bring his work to life on paper and canvas, but also on huge city walls too.

This is a highly abstract and geometrical painting of the future by artist, Home. Do you see foresee the future this way or have you not indulged in enough hallucinogens to be on that level?

I would say that is a pretty good job at replicating the same straight letter twice, right? That is not as easy as it looks. Mecro two times for your head.

Famous Faces Behind the Scenes Captured by Michael Tighe

Juxtapoz // Saturday, July 21, 2012
Faces are the main way people are recognized, unless you suffer from prosopagnosia (a disorder that the famed painter Chuck Close is diagnosed with). The power of the face is what makes images of pop culture celebrities so compelling: they speak to the masses in a way that many other images cannot. What is great about these photographs by Michael Tighe is seeing these iconic faces out of their usual contexts and often times capturing the movie stars in their personal homes.
